GTA 6 is a highly anticipated game, even if there is still little solid news. However, as dedicated fans we are, we have navigated through the Internet to gather the best gossip, rumors and facts for your personal pleasure.
Shootings, beatings, carjacking, drug trafficking and the infamous freedom to drive through innumerable sex workers through the sprawling metropolis of every game: although unpleasant to many, there is no denying the immense cultural impact that GTA's giant open-world games have taken place in the world of video games.
So while Rockstar Games may be working hard trying to bring Red Dead Redemption 2 to fans for its release date in October, we can not stop thinking about GTA 6 and when we might hear some kind of confirmation or window of firm launch.
Grand Theft Auto 5 has been one of the most successful game releases in the world and although we are still enjoying GTA Online, it is & nbsp; Now it's been about five years since we were last released in a new Rockstar city and we started to be curious about where we could go next.
All we know right now is that we will not see GTA 6 in 2019. After a counterfeit launch date on some fake pop-up advertisements broadcast on the Internet, Rockstar came out to inform us that we would not be. watching the game during the next year. And there we were with our hopes set.
Take a look at our video below in GTA VI: Predictions about characters, locations, history and GTA Online.
Cut to the hunt
- What is it? highly anticipated next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series
- When is it out? That is the biggest mystery of the Internet (but it will not be 2019)
- Will it be launched on the PC? Both GTA 4 and 5 came to the PC (over time), so we have all of our cross appendices
Release date of GTA 6: when can I play it?
With Red Dead Redemption in October 2018 you're going to wait a little longer for a release date of GTA 6.
According to some reports, we could wait until 2020 for the next Grand Theft Auto, which would make sense. Rockstar has admitted GTA Online, the multiplayer component of GTA 5, as the game was launched in September 2013 with regular content updates.
If the online component of Red Dead Redemption 2 is somehow similar to GTA Online, no doubt Rockstar will be busy with that for a few more years.
After three years of GTA Online, the company was ready to do Red Dead Redemption 2, so perhaps three years after that we will see GTA 6 – slap bang in 2020. But according to the renowned industry analyst Michael Pachter, the game could be as far away as 2022.
In an interview with Gaming Bolt Pachter said he believes that a 2020 announcement with a release in 2021 would be the best, while An announcement of 2021 with a 2022 release or later would be more likely.
Basically, waiting for any news from GTA 6 anytime soon is optimistic, or a hoax that happened recently. We think it would make sense if the game followed the launch pattern of its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto 5, by which it is launched at the end of the current generation, is comfortably launched in the new generation and straddles the wider installation . possible base.

GTA 6 trailer: when can I see one?
What happens with Rockstar Games is that it is incredibly reserved. No trailer is coming out of that game studio unless someone gets upset.
Just look at what Rockstar did with GTA 5 and Red Read Redemption 2. He made fun of an ad a few days before releasing the first trailer of any of the games.
If there is a GTA 6 trailer, you will know it because the Internet will explode.
News and rumors of GTA 6: what do we know so far?
Know's report on Vice City
The most recent and significant rumor of Grand Theft Auto 6 has come from the YouTube channel The Know . He says that an internal source has told him that GTA 6 will come 2021-2022 and is being developed with the code name Project Americas.
The reason for this code name is apparently because players can fly between the US UU South America in the game, although most of the action will take place in the first. This in combination with the source's claim that the game will be developed primarily in Vice City (the Rockstar version of Miami) suggests that there could be a focus on drug trafficking that would be based on the popularity of shows and movies like Narcos and Tom Cruise and apos. ; s Made in America. Particularly if Rockstar clings to that configuration of the 80s.
Without comments from Rockstar, these rumors are still nothing more than, well, rumors. But they raise an interesting proposal that would take advantage of the particular fans that many fans of the series have for Vice City.
GTA 6 is definitely coming and there are ideas
What we know about GTA 6 is that ideas are being launched for development, even if it is in the early stages. Rockstar president Leslie Benzies mocked the game in an interview in 2013 with Develop magazine.
"We do not know what GTA 6 will be, but we have some ideas," Benzies said in the interview.
Okay, then it's not much, but it's certainly a piece of solid information directly from the source.
Benzies went on to talk about what kind of ideas make creative juices flow in Rockstar.
"We have about 45 years of ideas we want to make," he added. "We'll select the right ones"
"First comes from the idea, where it's going to be established is the first question, that then defines the missions, you're doing different things in Los Angeles than in New York or Miami."
The map and the story are made together, and the story is a basic flow of how it works so that you can apply the mission. "19659002] We are happy that Rockstar has so many ideas about what he wants to do with GTA 6. We just hope he classifies them. in some kind of organized system and make us look like that game.
GTA 6 map: where will GTA 6 be established?
Although there has not yet been any concrete report, every bit of juicy online gossip points towards the GTA 6 map that is absolutely massive.
We are not even talking about a massive city, we are potentially talking about the whole United States being massive.
Some rumors suggest that GTA 6 may end up encompassing the All of the United States, with some kind of teleportation system that reduces travel time between cities.
There's even some incredibly exciting rumors that Rockstar Games might have a 70s theme up their sleeve, so add those old bell-bottoms and disco balls.
But there is also another rumor that is gaining strength, which would put GTA 6 a little closer to the British home of Rockstar Games: a London environment.
The reports actually started with a comment from Rockstar Games co-founder, Dan Houser:
"At the moment, it seems that GTA's DNA is contemporary-ish, American-ish, English-ish, because that's What has been … But that does not necessarily limit it to that, that's what we've done so far. "
Sources from Rockstar Games suggest that London is the only non-US location that is whispered as a potential GTA setting.
For our money, we believe that a return to Vice City is at stake, which would be related to the rumors mentioned above. A recent report by The Know suggests that a return to Vice City in the 1980s is already under way and that players will explore the increase in drugs at that time through the missions. In this rumored game, players will move between Vice City and South America, which would create a very interesting and completely new kind of map.
The GTA 3 trilogy was established in three locations: Liberty City, Vice City and San Andreas. . This reflected the original Grand Theft Auto game, which was also mounted in the same three locations.
The most recent Grand Theft Auto games, GTA 4 and GTA 5, have been established so far in Liberty City and San Andreas, respectively, which means that Vice City is the only place that has not yet been explored in the latest games.
The only question now is whether Rockstar will be tempted to complete the set.
GTA 6 rumors
1. A female protagonist
When asked about a female GTA 5 protagonist, instead of three male heroes (or antiheroes), the co-founder and leader from Rockstar, Dan Houser, said in an interview with The Guardian in 2013 that a female lead was not really on the table, but not intentionally.
"We did not think much this time," said Houser. "That does not mean we could not or would not do it." This set of characters is just what came to us: it was not "we have X and Y, then we need Z". We did not try to do it from a checklist; I do not think that will ever give you something that is credible or interesting. "
" In the future, could we make a game with a female protagonist? Of course. We still have not found the right game for him, but it's one of the things we always think about. "
" It did not seem natural for this game, but definitely for the right game in the future – with the right themes, it could be fantastic But for GTA 5, this was the organic thing that came up, these were the characters that would show the themes we wanted to think about. "
Probability: Strong, fans always clamored for a female hero in a Grand Theft Auto game, and it would be a wonderful change from all the slaughtered prostitutes.
2. Eva Mendez and Ryan Gosling
The rumors of a female lead are super exciting, but there are more.
Apparently , Eva Mendez heads the list of Rockstar for interpreting this hero.
But, again, there is more.There is also a male protagonist on the list and is none other than the crazy heart of the whole world Ryan Gosling, who also turns out to be his true husband in real life.
Probability: Questionable GTA is a great game franchise that is incredibly famous, especially outside the gaming industry, so it's possible that Some big names are involved, but we are not convinced.
3. Full support for virtual reality
Another rumor of GTA 6 involves virtual reality and according to online rumors, you may be able to play the whole of GTA 6 in virtual reality .
No specific headphones have been mentioned, but since this is probably just a rumor, it does not bother us.
Probability: Questionable. GTA 6 could have an associated virtual reality experience, but playing the whole game in virtual reality would be crazy.
Unless we've seen big jumps in virtual reality in the years between now and the release date of GTA 6, playing a full game of GTA in virtual reality would try the tests for most stomachs.
Fast-paced, action-packed and played in long sessions, a VR GTA (in its current form at least) would not work.
4. Voyage in time or another futuristic turn
With the gossip of a large map for GTA 6, there are also some rumors that traveling through time is an important part of the game.
Yes … seriously.
We're not talking about Saints Row, but apparently there may be a futuristic twist for GTA 6.
According to a ChristianToday report, in reality, the game will give players "the taste of time travel" where "teleportation [is] possible within a fraction of a second. "
Probability: Totally ridiculous. There are fun side quests in GTA games, but having time traveling like a main game mechanic is simply not in Rockstar's DNA.
In addition, ChristianToday does not have screenshots, sources or any kind of proof, so we are certainly skeptical.
5. Playing as a cop or as a criminal
Another potential for the story of GTA 6 is that you have the decision to play as a cop or as a criminal. Or at least, if GTA 6 adopts the multiple protagonist feature of GTA 5, one of the characters you play could be a police officer.
Probability: Strong. We could fully see that this works, especially with the potential chaos that could ensue if you are playing a Trevor-style character half the time and one cop the other.
