Grand Theft Auto 6 is currently under development according to the resume of a former Rockstar Games developer. The developer in question is Bibin Michael who’s an experienced 3D graphics designer.
Bibin Michael is one of the many people that appear in the credits of Red Dead Redemption 2, therefore making this GTA 6 leak stand out from others. Michael’s name is also mentioned here on the game’s thank you page, a list of people people who contributed to the development of RDR 2.
You can check out the screenshot below in case the artist removes the mention of GTA 6 from his resume at ArtStation.
Michael mentions that between December 2017 and April 2018, he worked on creating “concept vehicles matching with the real world for GTA 5 DLC and upcoming GTA 6”. By GTA 5 DLC, he probably means GTA Online but GTA 6 as we all know is the highly anticipated upcoming sequel. However, do take it all with a grain of salt it could be a mistake made by the designer.
Unfortunately, that’s all that the designer has mentioned about GTA VI. We are finally getting to hear rumors and news about the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. Previously, we reported a leak/rumor that GTA 6 is coming out next year during the holiday season.
According to the leak, PS5 users of the game will be first to play the next game in Grand Theft Auto franchise. That’s because Sony is offering loads of cash to Rockstar Games in order to secure GTA 6 as a PlayStation exclusive. It’s only a speculation for now. However, if it’s true, Xbox Anaconda users will have to wait for one more month to play the game.
The alleged leaker also says that the next GTA 6 is going to take place in New York City and Miami.
As for the question when GTA 6 will come out? Not anytime soon to be honest. It’s possible that the development team (Rockstar Studios) which worked for RDR 2 is now working on the next game in Grand Theft Auto franchise. A 2019 release doesn’t make sense as Rockstar is still working on Red Dead Online.
We can expect GTA 6 to be released sometime next year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC release of the game can be assumed to release sometime later after the game’s launch on consoles like GTA V. Grand Theft Auto 6 can also turn out to be one of the launch titles for next-gen consoles like Sony’s PlayStation 4 or Microsoft’s Xbox Scarlett.
