It has been a while since GTA V launched for current-gen consoles and fans have been waiting and speculating the arrival of GTA 6. There has been a rumor making rounds on the internet suggesting that GTA 6 will make it the very first time the franchise will go outside of the US by featuring a city based on either England, Russia, or Australia, however, we are here to confirm that the game will not go outside of the US.
A trusted source of ours inside Rockstar Games itself, who chose to remain anonymous, has revealed to us that GTA 6 location will remain inside the United States. Lots of speculation has surrounded this topic and many “leaks” pointed toward locations like Russia, Australia, and even London. However, as we can now confirm that this won’t be the case.
We tried to get more out of our source in order to know which city we may be heading to this time. However, it is too early for them to talk about the GTA 6 location.
It is believed that Rockstar Games is aiming for 2020 release for GTA 6 but an official announcement isn’t expected until 2019. Back is 2016 the studio revealed that the development of the game is in full swing but it is still in early stages of development. Although the studio has some ideas regarding the game’s setting, story, but the current focus was on GTA V and GTA Online.
It comes from the idea first. Where it is going to be set is the first question. Then that defines the missions; you’re doing different things in LA than in New York or Miami. The map and story get worked up together, and the story is a basic flow of how it works out so you can layer the mission in.
Rockstar Games is also working on Red Dead Redemption 2 which is slated for Spring 2018 release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
