If there’s something we can be sure that will happen in the nearby future, then it must be that Rockstar will announce GTA 6. The game developer was expected to unveil GTA 6 in 2018, but Rockstar said that it doesn’t want to focus all its attention on this franchise and decided to develop Red Dead Redemption 2 instead. However, Red Dead Redemption 2 is months away from coming out and this means one thing, Rockstar has enough time to focus on GTA 6.
GTA 6 is Inevitable
Considering that GTA 5 sold more than 95 million copies worldwide, we think it’s safe to assume that GTA 6 is inevitable. Even though Rockstar is being silent about it, the game is surely under development and today we are going to go over the most reliable leaks regarding it.
The first leak that ever came out about GTA 6 was back in 2016 when Rockstar insider Yan2295 claimed that the upcoming game will take place in a 1970s setting, similar to Vice City. Knowing that Vice City was a fan-favorite, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. In addition, Yan2295 also mentioned a couple of possible locations for GTA 6: Detroit, Mexico City, Las Vegas and Chicago.
The Game is Under Development
Games such as GTA 6 are huge and they need lots of time for development before a finished product is ready to launch. Well, it looks like we might not have to wait that long until we get a glimpse of GTA 6 because Yan2295 also reported that Rockstar has assigned a team of 60 people and 10 outsourcers to work on GTA 6 in secret. This announcement came out back in 2016 and we can be sure that the team has expanded since then.
The most exciting leak regarding GTA 6 is that the game will feature a female protagonist. Just like GTA 5, players will get to pick from a couple of main characters and one of them is going to be female. This leak is quite plausible since Rockstar has received lots of criticism for the way it portrays women in its games and introducing a female protagonist would surely make up for that. Not just that, but the game would sell even better than expected since there are many female gamers.
