What is known so far about Rockstar’s most eagerly awaited game, GTA 6?

Although Rockstar Games may have announced that GTA 6 is actually in development, there haven’t been many GTA 6 rumors to date.

It’s still unclear exactly when and where it will take place. Furthermore, there haven’t yet been any exciting development rumors or screenshot leaks.

However, given that Rockstar Games doesn’t produce little games when it opts for a freeform open-world environment, it’s possible that GTA 6 is still in the early stages of development. Furthermore, Rockstar is making a killing with GTA V Online, so there’s no need to rush.

Nevertheless, here is what we currently know about GTA 6 along with a lot of conjecture.

Release-date rumors for GTA 6

Definitely in development is GTA 6. The only thing left to determine is exactly when publisher Rockstar Games will choose to release the new chapter. Rockstar has just spoken the phrase “keep tuned” thus far.

The most current rumor asserts that GTA 6 would debut in 2023. This assertion is supported by publisher Take-substantial Two’s anticipated marketing expenditure for the calendar year that ends on March 31, 2024, as disclosed in a recent financial statement. Rockstar has denied this allegation, stating Gamesindustry.biz(opens in new tab) that those expectations are based on agreements with third parties.

We can learn other things from these financial reports besides just that. A 14 percent growth rate during Take-fiscal Two’s year ending in March 2024 may possibly be a clue as to when GTA 6 will be released.

In response to the financial data, a Jefferies analyst stated: “There are only a select few games that can provide management the assurance to put out such a strong outlook; we believe there is at least one Rockstar IP due to be launched by FY24.” This game would most likely be GTA 6.

A recent job posting for a “Cinematic Gameplay Capture Artist” on Rockstar’s careers page could be viewed as a positive indicator for impending information. This post, which simply entails hiring someone to record gameplay trailers, may be a sign that Rockstar is getting ready to show us some GTA 6 footage soon.

Additionally, a YouTuber recently asserted that a GTA 6 trailer would be released shortly. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the aforementioned online celebrity doesn’t offer any proof to support their assertions, so you should proceed with caution.

GTA 6 platforms: PS4, PS5 and more

With regard to the gaming systems you’ll be able to play it on, the release in 2023 or 2024 would put us squarely in the PS5/Xbox Series X generation. However, if Rockstar is feeling kind, it might also make a version for the PS4 and Xbox One.

After their respective console debuts, Rockstar also ported GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 to PC, so an eventual PC port also seems likely.

GTA 6 characters and story leaks

Through all of its games, the GTA series doesn’t stick with a specific cast of people or even a single setting. Therefore, those hoping to see more of Michael, Franklin, or Trevor should be realistic in their hopes.

The city of Los Santos and its surroundings share the same situation. However, given that Los Santos has appeared in earlier games in the series (specifically GTA: San Andreas), it’s possible that GTA 6 will bring us back to Liberty City (from GTA IV), Vice City (from GTA: Vice City), San Fierro, or Las Venturas, or even a brand-new city that was inspired by real-world cities in the game’s version of the United States. According to one rumor from a Twitter user posing as an insider, the game’s title would be GTA Vice, with the letters V and I possibly capitalised to represent the roman numeral for six.

Although there have been speculations that Rockstar has been interested in Tokyo, it’s unlikely that would happen given that Rockstar vice president Dan Houser has stated that he thinks “GTA is America.”

Regarding the story’s beats, you can be sure that you’ll be enjoying the customary mixture of crimes and heists together with the peculiar glimpse into the weird lives of the protagonists and antagonists.

According to a leak from the previous year, the plot would be quite similar to that of the Netflix series Narcos and would largely center on the activities of gangs and cartels on both sides of the US/Mexico border as seen by the player character Ricardo.

With rumors that a game in development for almost eight years will feature three cities to explore—Liberty City, Vice City, and a new setting inspired by Rio de Janeiro and set in the 1970s and 1980s—the so-called “Project Americas” leaks had fans very enthusiastic. Although it’s amusing to picture what this game would have been like, it’s not what we’ll actually receive because it’s been very obvious that the leaker couldn’t support what they were stating.

GTA 6 setting

It was rumored that GTA 6 will be set in the 1980s, thereby bringing Vice City—interpretation Rockstar’s of 1980s Miami—back. It’s possible that this theory won’t be realized.

A fresh job posting at Rockstar India and rumors around Tom Henderson, a reputable tipper, support the idea that GTA 6 will take place in the present day. We’re aiming for a London location, although it’s not yet obvious how this modern setting will look.

Right now, there are more speculative claims than concrete information. Either way, there will be a lot of satire and a lot of space to explore.

GTA 6 online

Thanks to the frequently updated GTA Online mode, GTA V has remained popular for a long time after its initial release in 2013. By doing so, you can participate in a wide range of game modes or simply free-roam with other players while earning money for vehicles, outfits, weapons, and player housing.

Therefore, it is extremely possible that GTA 6 will be followed by a sequel. But it’s feasible that the two encounters will remain distinct. Since consoles can now install individual game files rather than the entire package, it’s feasible that Rockstar will decide to split GTA Online from the single player component of the game. GTA Online initially launched a month after the single player half of the game.

In either case, maybe there will be a method for transferring in-game money and things from GTA Online to the new game. Rockstar has profited greatly from players’ purchases of microtransactions in GTAO, and it’s likely that some gamers don’t want this money to completely evaporate with the transition to a new generation.
