Fans of Grand Theft Auto are waiting for the announcement of GTA 6, a possible successor to GTA 5, but Rockstar Games has not yet announced GTA 6. We inform you on this overview with all important information, news and rumors about the release, about trailers, about the location and about the gameplay.
Grand Theft Auto is one of the most successful video game brands in the world. Since 1997, video players have been stealing cars in the game world and making the area unsafe. The mix of action blockbuster, racing game, shooter and action adventure has always thrilled the players.
GTA 5 was released in 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3, 2014 for PS4 and Xbox One. A year later, the PC version of GTA 5, which was demanded by many fans, came onto the market. Now fans and probably also developers of Rockstar Games are looking at the possible successor GTA 6.
GTA 6: Release still far away
You wonder when a GTA 6 for PC and consoles could be released? There is no release date yet and that’s no wonder – after all, GTA 6 has not yet been officially announced. After an announcement it would take a long time anyway if the publisher would give a release date.
If you look at the previous release rhythm, then the following is noticeable: Only five years have passed between the market launches of GTA 4 and GTA 5. But you have to wait even longer for GTA 6 than for the fifth part, because the year 2018 has already passed.
GTA 6: Analyst comments on announcement
According to the analyst Michael Pachter, the release of GTA 6 will take place sooner in 2022 or later. Rockstar could make an announcement in the best case 2020 or 2021.
However, there are further indications that GTA 6 will be released either in 2021 or 2022. This is indicated by the YouTube channel The Know, which specializes in games and refers to the information of an insider.
Rumours are already circulating on the net that GTA 6 could appear for next-gen consoles such as PS5 orXbox 2. There has also been speculation about time exclusivity for PS5.
Netzwelt expects that Rockstar Games will announce GTA 6 or a GTA with another name until 2021, the release of a GTA 6 for PS5 and the new Xbox would be conceivable between 2020 and 2024. But it shouldn’t take any longer. A stuntman is said to have indicated that GTA 6 is already in development. But the hint turned out to be wrong.
GTA 6: Location probably not Tokyo
In GTA 5 you play in the world of Los Santos. Which venue GTA 6 could offer is unclear. Japan’s capital Tokyo was considered a hot candidate and the development team was currently taking photos of GTA 3 and GTA Vice City. In the end, Japan’s road network turned out to be too complicated. Tokyo won’t.
More locations are thrown into the GTA 6 rumor mill. So the game could take you to London, but Rockstar would have a lot of fans to change, because in England is left-hand traffic and there is also the steering wheel on the right side.
Media portals such as Neurogadget also mention the Californian city of San Diego, but the sources for such places are very vague. So it is not really clear on what the rumors about the aforementioned venues are based. So perceive the information from a distance.
In mid-2019, an alleged leak names the cities of New York and Miami as possible locations in GTA 6. According to this, you start as a small crook and then work your way up to the drug boss in both cities.
Code name of GTA 6
GTA 6 has the code name “Project Americas”, reports the game program The Know with reference to inside information. It even hints that you could travel from Miami to South America – maybe this has something to do with drug deals.
GTA 6: Innovations expected
According to the insider, you might also be allowed to play a woman as the main character in GTA 6. The decision has not yet been made, but it will probably be considered.
Many fans are already satisfied with GTA 5, but there is room for improvement in almost every video game – even the loading times in the new Grand Theft Auto may be shorter. We’ll tell you what new features Rockstar GTA 6 has made better than its predecessor.
