The gaming community is anxiously waiting for an announcement from Rockstar Games regarding the launch of the next title in the Grand Theft Auto series -the GTA 6. It has been six years since GTA 5 and GTA Online were released and there has been no word from Rockstar regarding a new GTA game.
In Rockstar’s defense, it was busy with its sequel to the popular Red Dead Redemption title. There are also rumors of a Bully 2 in the works. However, the community seems to be more excited about GTA 6 than anything else and rightly so. GTA 5 was a massive hit due to its interesting storyline and GTA Online is still fun to play as new modes and updates are being released.
GTA Online Receiving Its Last Update This December
Recently, there have been new updates that might give us some hints about GTA 6. A Rockstar Games leaker Tezfunz2 claims that Rockstar is going to release the final update for the GTA Online title soon. As GTA Online is the online version of GTA 5, it may mean that Rockstar is planning to release GTA 6 with its online variation.
The rumors come from updates in the Steam database, which appear when there is a new update for GTA Online. After the update, which is expected to be released in December of 2019, Rockstar will be moving on to other titles like the potential GTA 6 or the online version of Red Dead Redemption, which the leaker thinks might happen.
There are rumors that Red Dead Redemption 2 might be coming to PC and Google’s streaming service -Google Stadia soon. It is currently available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. GTA 5 was also picked up recently by Sony for its PlayStation Now streaming service.
GTA 6 Rumors and Updates
With anticipation comes rumors and they have gone overdrive in 2019. We are seeing GTA 6 leaks on almost every gaming forum, Reddit being the main platform.
Different rumors claim that GTA 6 will be released in 2020 and the new game will be based in Vice City. They also suggest that the new game will be initially released as an exclusive for Sony’s next-generation gaming console -the PlayStation 5.
A rumor suggests that the latest Rockstar Games title will feature one male and one female protagonist instead of three male characters like GTA 5. The game is also reported to have a hunting mini-game and wild animals like Red Dead Redemption 2. All these rumors and leaks are purely speculative with no proof whatsoever. We are still waiting for an official word from Rockstar regarding GTA 6.
