While one has to wait quite a bit for the Grand Theft Auto 6 to arrive in the market, rumors surrounding it have kept the upcoming game in the news. Rockstar Games, the company which develops this game, must be happy with the buzz around it. GTA 6 is expected to be launched sometime in 2023 and if the buzz is so strong now, it will only get stronger as one moves closer to the launch date.
GTA 6 on Xbox Series X and PS5
It is being said that the GTA 6 will be an Xbox Series X and PS5 exclusive. It is also expected to be launched on PC consoles shortly after that. There is no confirmation on whether the game will be available on streaming services but going by the trends of our times, there is a good possibility of that happening.
There are several reasons which make one believe that Rockstar Games will make the necessary arrangements to make GTA 6 available on PC. But, if one takes the bolder launch of the Red Dead Redemption 2 into account, the company might take that step with a lot of caution.
Major Changes to be Done in GTA 6
There has also been news about some major changes being implemented in GTA 6’s settings. The modifications will reflect prominently in the upcoming version of the game and play an important role in determining its look and feel. So, there will be a difference this time in terms of the kind of vehicles one would be allowed to use, the time period in which the game will be set in and the kind of narrative that will drive the game.
GTA 6 New Characters
One prominent character that is expected to come back in the upcoming version would be CrisFormage. Though not a regular character in the GTA universe, Formage has made an appearance in San Andreas, GTA 5 and GTA Online. There is no clarity on which of the other characters or narrative structures could be back in the game. The Epsilon Program leader has been appearing only briefly in each version of the game but since he has been a part of GTA for a very long time, there are is a good chance of making a comeback in the upcoming version.
Another important character that is expected to feature in GTA 6 is Lazlow Jones, a radio show anchor who has been a part of every single game in the GTA franchise. However, one must also remember that Lazlow Jones, who is a character actor, recently made an announcement about taking a break from Rockstar Games because of personal reasons. Jones, apart from playing this fictional role, also worked as a writer and a producer at Rockstar Games. He made this announcement on his LinkedIn profile.
One expects Rockstar Games to make the official announcement about some of the other features and additions that one can look forward to in GTA 6. But, that should happen only after the upcoming version of Grand Theft Auto V releases on Xbox Series X and PS5 consoles.
