Rockstar has grown significantly in recent years. It’s Grand Theft Auto (GTA) video game series has become one of the most popular. The launch of GTA 5 in 2013 gave the saga even more momentum (GTA V is currently still very active online), becoming one of the best-selling video games in history, and receiving high praise from experts and players alike. The saga’s most die-hard fans are eagerly awaiting the official announcement of when GTA 6 will be released, which is one of the most anticipated video games on the scene.
What does Rockstar say about GTA VI?
Gamers have been waiting long for GTA 6 to be officially released. On 4 February 2022, Rockstar officially announced that they are developing a new game in the series.
However, no further details have been provided. There are only fan-generated and insider-generated rumours on the company’s part, which, while they may seem real to many, Rockstar has yet to confirm anything.
What will be the storyline of GTA 6?
In the sixth instalment of Grand Theft Auto, it will be possible to play as two main characters, a brother and sister (twins). They have been separated since childhood due to the actions of the cartel that killed their parents in 2003. The tragic scene with the relatives will take place, supposedly in the game’s prologue in Brazil.
The single-player narrative campaign will take place in the 2020s. The brother will eventually meet his sister, but they will represent opposing sides. The brother will become a police officer and a drug agent, while the sister will work for the cartel, moving up the ranks to take revenge for her parent’s deaths.
According to the source, this instalment of GTA will be the first game in video game history to immerse the user deeply into the cartel/military world. The game will be set in Carcer City, Vice City, Cuba, and Colombia.
It is noted that in the new GTA, the buildings will be destructible. At the same time, a large amount of modern military equipment will be added to the gameplay.
GTA 6 release date on PS5, Xbox Series S/X and PC
As soon as Rockstar announced that a new game of the franchise was in development, many rumours and leaks found different release dates for GTA 6.
Some insiders have mentioned that it will be out by 2025. Other rumours have stated that it will be in the year 2024, with the most recent talk being the most credible based on certain ‘indications’ detected by important sources in the industry.
They even indicate that it could come out in 2023. However, they were not very strong because it has only relatively recently been revealed that it is in development, and that would be a rushed release, especially for a game with such high hopes.
What to expect from the new GTA?
Because of the great success that GTA 5 had, the expectations of gamers, fans and critics for this new game are very high, with graphics, story, maps, etc., exceeding the quality of its predecessor.
Some are hoping that GTA 6 will have a map that will transport them back to remember the famous Vice City, from the video game GTA: Vice City, with a very similar storyline, missions and characters, but making the most of modern technology.
The GTA 6 map
Most await an extensive map, the largest so far in the series, with the ability to go through the cities where the previous video games in the series were developed, in addition to being able to go to places inspired by Europe and Central America.
The truth is that knowing Rockstar will significantly improve its predecessor and be sure to give us many hours of gaming and entertainment.
Will GTA 6 be online?
There will be no separate multiplayer mode for GTA 6. Instead, Rockstar will develop the existing GTA Online, which appeared with GTA 5. The new online will add a map of Liberty City and about 20 radio stations. One of them will be called Carcer Soul FM.
