Everything we know about GTA VI Rockstar Games
GTA VI Rockstar Games is not going to stay with GTA V to live on income knowing the potential that the most mediatic sandbox in the history of video games has. The development of GTA VI (provisional name for now) is an open secret, but the pieces remain to fit until it becomes reality with an official statement.
The studio usually takes it very calmly between each installment of its main saga, with periods of between four and five years, as happened with the last GTA IV in 2008 and the aforementioned GTA V in 2013, so there should not be many years until its launch. And that many things are going to change in the future.
GTA VI: Launch on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series
The most rumored thing about the launch of Grand Theft Auto VI is that it will be an exclusive next generation game , so the new PS5 and Xbox Series X enter the bag | Yes , with a probable adaptation to PC, perhaps not for the same day, but shortly after, as happened with the fifth chapter, already in 2015.
This is because Rockstar Games has been launching for some time first on consoles and then on compatible ones, in this case having the doubt about whether it will do so on Steam or already in the Epic Games Store , where GTA V was given away for a week.
As we discovered in April 2020, this Grand Theft Auto will be more restrained in its content and will grow over time through regular updates. The main goal seems to be to mitigate the stress and crunch that studio employees suffered with with the massive Red Dead Redemption 2.
It does not mean that it will not be a large GTA, but it will probably not be as ambitious as its fifth installment was, with three protagonists and, therefore, three intertwined stories. And with a content that has not stopped being renewed during all these years, with millionaire sales
It should be remembered, on the other hand, that Dan Houser , one of the founders of the studio and scriptwriter of the GTA saga and other Rockstar Games productions, left ship on March 11, 2020 , after more than 20 years of work.
One of the most extensive alleged leaks took place in early 2018, where it was dropped that its code name would be Project Americas. Our role will be that of an aspiring drug lord named Ricardo, moving through the iconic Vice City of the unforgettable Grand Theft Auto: Vice City released in 2002.
It is the most repeated rumor, the return to Vice City as the starting point for a new installment where its narrative would be enhanced following a style similar to that of series like Narcos. In this regard, Max Payne 3 is also mentioned about his immersion. In addition, we would also travel to South America, respecting their language.
Its setting would take us to the 70s and 80s, experiencing changes in those two decades, not only in terms of the songs that sounded, but also the appearance of the buildings, the vehicles … And as a curiosity, a young man is mentioned Martin Madrazo, who we saw in GTA V as the leader of a Mexican cartel.
On the other hand, we have seen how a very small fragment of their map recently leaked into 4chan, with two islands practically linked. We will not know if it will end up being part of the game, but it should not be forgotten that its map was leaked from Red Dead Redemption 2 before its launch … Anything is possible.
There is an important detail in that supposed leak, by ensuring that the game will not be as realistic as Red Dead Redemption 2, but will be halfway, with more arcade snippets. Now, the funny thing is that we would enjoy a vehicle similar to the horse in this Wild West game, by storing all our belongings in its trunk. It is as if we have a portable “base”.
Adverse weather conditions will have a greater weight in this GTA VI, apparently, suffering all kinds of inclemency, such as hurricanes, floods. On the other hand, it is rumored that it will have a construction mode similar to GTA: Vice City Stories from 2006, but enhanced, where we can create our drug empire from scratch and take it to its peak. And this will surely consume many hours. And yes, it is also mentioned that there will be a gigantic prison that will have a special role for a good stretch of the game. It is what fits the most, without a doubt.
Seeing that money kneading machine is GTA Online, a whole lawless jungle, it seems unlikely that Rockstar Games will leave aside that complement the current GTA V. What does not mean, in any case, that the new installment will not have its own online world, although it remains to be known what it will be like, whether it will go on its own or not, which city we will move about, the available modes and with how many players at once. Already put, why not also put a Battle Royale?
For now, they are rumors from multiple sources that must be taken with a grain of salt, not in vain we do not even have an official name, and much less a video to better imagine what awaits us, presumably in 2025 in the next-gen. There is talk, on the other hand, that its map will undergo much more pronounced changes throughout the different seasons following the style of the huge Fortnite.
We do know for sure, in any case, that Rockstar Games long ago registered two domains with the names GTA VI and Vice City Online, so there is reason to dream of that return to Vice City. Not surprisingly, in 2022 its 20th anniversary would be celebrated. What better than to launch it this year or just the next? I wish.
