GTA 6 news and rumours

Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA 6) is the highly anticipated next instalment in Rockstar Games‘ blockbuster Grand Theft Auto video game franchise. First released in 1997, the GTA series has become one of the most successful and controversial game franchises of all time, known for its open-world environments, criminal storylines, and unapologetic violence and mayhem.

GTA 6 - When does it come out?

While Rockstar Games has not officially announced GTA 6 yet, there have been many rumors and leaks about the next game over the past few years. GTA 6 is expected to have a new setting, potentially Vice City which was featured in an earlier 2002 GTA title. The game may have multiple protagonists and the first ever female protagonist in a GTA game. It will likely feature cutting edge graphics, a huge open world environment, and a storyline focused on organized crime families.

Though Rockstar has not confirmed any details, most analysts expect GTA 6 to launch sometime in the next couple years on the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. The anticipation for GTA 6 is immense, as previous games have broken numerous sales records. With over 150 million copies of GTA games sold to date, GTA 6 may be one of the highest selling and most popular games when it arrives. For now, fans eagerly await official details from Rockstar on what’s next for the iconic Grand Theft Auto franchise.

GTA 6 News Timeline

We’ve assembled a total GTA VI Timeline, from first announcement to the latest news, find all of the details about GTA 6 Below.

GTA 6 Release time & platforms

While Rockstar Games has announced that Grand Theft Auto 6 is in development, no official release date has been provided. According to a June 2022 Bloomberg report, current and former Rockstar employees estimate that GTA 6 is at least two years away from launch, suggesting a potential release in 2024 or 2025.

Rockstar has not confirmed what platforms GTA 6 will be available on at launch, but it is likely the game will release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. Older consoles are less probable, depending on GTA 6’s eventual release date.

Historically, PC ports of Rockstar games have followed the console releases by several years, so a PC version may not be available immediately at launch.

Fans will have to wait for Rockstar to announce more details regarding GTA 6’s release date and platform availability.

When Was GTA 6 Announced?

On February 4, 2022, Rockstar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto 6 was in active development through a tweet. The tweet simply confirmed that work on GTA 6 was underway without providing any other details about the game, such as a potential release date or platforms. This announcement tweet marks the last official update from Rockstar regarding the status of GTA 6 development.

Is There a GTA 6 Trailer yet?

Rockstar Games announced Grand Theft Auto 6 without any prior teasing or accompanying trailer, marking a departure from how the developer revealed previous titles.

For both GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar teased announcements a few days ahead of debuting the first trailer. However, this time Rockstar silently announced GTA 6 in a community post.

The lack of a trailer makes it challenging to predict if or when gameplay footage will emerge. Overall, Rockstar seems to be taking a more low-key approach to unveiling GTA 6 compared to hyping up earlier reveals with trailers.

Is GTA 6 In Vice City?

While Rockstar Games has not confirmed the setting for GTA 6, rumors suggest Vice City as the most likely location. Vice City is Rockstar’s fictional version of Miami. According to a Bloomberg report, an inside source claims GTA 6 will take place in Vice City, backing up leaked gameplay footage showing a “Vice City Metro” train.

Initially, GTA 6 was rumored to encompass areas modeled after North and South America. However, Rockstar supposedly scaled back the scope to focus on Vice City and surroundings, though the world remains expansive with more interiors than previous titles.

The map will also expand after release through substantial updates larger than GTA 5’s. This allows more development time for the initial map and ideally reduces crunch. Players can anticipate new missions and cities added regularly post-launch to explore fresh areas.

Overall, strong indications point to Vice City as the nucleus of GTA 6, with an ever-growing world planned after release. This evolving map approach aims to deliver a vast yet detailed environment while easing intense development demands.

Does GTA 6 Have Two Playable Characters?

Unfortunately, it is still too early to definitively say whether GTA 6 will have two playable characters or not. Rockstar Games has not officially confirmed any details about the protagonists in GTA 6 yet.

Some rumors and leaks have suggested that GTA 6 may feature two main playable protagonists, similar to GTA 5 which had three playable characters (Michael, Franklin, and Trevor). However, other reports indicate GTA 6 may just have one main playable protagonist.

Having multiple playable protagonists was a major feature of GTA 5, so it’s reasonable to speculate that Rockstar could go that route again. But the developer may also decide to go in a new direction and switch to focusing on a single playable character for the narrative in GTA 6.

In summary, while having two playable characters is a possibility for GTA 6 based on some rumors, Rockstar has not provided any official confirmation yet. We will likely have to wait for more concrete details direct from the developer before knowing if GTA 6 will have multiple playable protagonists or just stick with one.
