With the overwhelming success of GTA 5, Rockstar and Take-Two made billions; and they plan to continue making more GTA games. The next installment, GTA 6, is going to release within the next 5 years but exactly when? Well, the following article will discuss exactly that as well as the latest news, and everything fans want to see from GTA 6.
GTA 6 release date is yet to be announced but there are hints we can pick up on. Developers and publisher are keeping a tight lip but when something is as big as GTA 6, every now and then something comes up. Moreover, there are so many features fans want Rockstar to consider for GTA 6. Most of them are improvements over the current features we had in GTA V.
GTA 6 Release Date
GTA 6 will release with improved graphics and gameplay compared to GTA V. GTA 6 release is not yet announced but we know it is going to take some time, and it is most definitely not releasing in the next two years.
According to Leslie Benzies of Rockstar, they have around 45 years worth of ideas they wish to experiment with in GTA 6. The first Grand Theft Auto game released back in 1997. Meanwhile, GTA 2 was in 1999, GTA 3 2001, GTA V 2008, GTA 5 in 2013.
2018 was going to be GTA 6’s release year but that won’t be the case. Rockstar is working on Red Dead Redemption 2 for 2018 and is going to support this game and its online multiplayer mode for years to come.
We do not expect GTA 6 release date to be anytime before 2021. GTA 6 release date won’t be announced until at least 2019. Meanwhile, expect a November 2021 release window. As far as the trailer goes, nothing before 2019.
GTA 6 will release on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox One X, PC, PlayStation 5, the Next Xbox.
GTA 6 Location
GTA 6 is a game that’s anticipated by millions out there. Its predecessor, GTA V, was released back in 2013 and was set in Los Santos. There are a lot of rumors and speculations regarding GTA 6 location being London. In fact, GTA 6 London is one of the highest searched locations. But there hasn’t been anything concrete to go on.
There are rumors that the game could be set in either New York, Australia, or Russia. But knowing Rockstar, we doubt they will go outside of the United States. Every GTA game is set within the United States.
We are also trying to confirm from our sources if the game is leaving the United States but it is safe to say that it is highly unlikely that GTA 6 location is set somewhere outside the country. We will keep you updated on the matter.
But for now, Rockstar is busy with Red Dead Redemption while GTA 6 is in early stages of development. There are many different ideas developers want to try so it will take sometime before we hear something.
But interestingly, there was a map leak that led us to believe that GTA 6 will allow players to explore the world. Even if that is true, the primary location will remain inside the United States.
GTA 6 Wishlist and Feature We Want to See
How About We Go Back to the 70’s
This is something that will breathe new life into Grand Theft Auto series. Going back to the 70’s or late 60’s where the Mafia rules the streets would be an interesting setting to explore. While games like Mafia 3 and Godfather series did good with such settings, GTA 6 can truly deliver something special with the 70’s.
Vintage cars, pubs, weapons, and locations, what else do we need?
A Microtransactions Free Online Experience
Well, this is a topic that has been in the discussion for a long time now. But it is EA and its Star Wars Battlefront 2 that broke the camels back and players finally took a stand, no more! Aggressive loot boxes system ruined a perfectly decent Star Wars experience.
And fans are worried that GTA 6 may do the same since Rockstar and Take-Two have done the same with GTA 5. Grand Theft Auto Online has in-game purchases that allow players to get an edge. You can buy Shark Cards to get in-game currency. From there, players can get weapons, cars, and whatever they like.
Meanwhile, others have to grind for hours to get something meaningful. Hopefully, GTA 6 will balance it out.
GTA 5 did a great job with multiple characters and their stories. So it is only natural that we would love to see them do the same with GTA 6 as well. Instead of focusing on one person for the entirety of the game, focus on multiple stories and bring them together. It will also make it easier to be diverse with the cast, a female lead character is long due in GTA games.
However, we hope they don’t be diverse just for the sake of being diverse, everything needs to make sense and be logical.
A Battle Royale Mode
Battle Royale modes are really popular right now and GTA 6 can really take this mode to a new level. GTA Online for GTA 6 should add a Battle Royale mode. It is perfect for such a feature as GTA games already come with a massive map and diverse range of weapons.
100 or fewer players on the map fighting it out for survival in GTA 6? Yes, please. And we think if there’s anyone who can dethrone PUBG, it is GTA 6 with a Battle Royale mode.
This was everything we had on GTA 6 for now, take to the comments and let us know what other features you want to see and where do you see GTA 6 going.
