Grand Theft Auto Six is a game rumored to be in development by studio Rockstar Games. However, at the moment, there has been no confirmation that this game is even in development, the most that fans have in terms of information is rumors and unconfirmed news. Players are anxious to see a new installment in this franchise: given that the last entry, Grand Theft Auto Five, was released eight years ago, many feel that a new game is all but guaranteed.
Despite the timeframe, there are many indications that Rockstar has no intention of making another Grand Theft Auto game anytime soon. To this day Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most popular and played games of the past decade, if not all time. This translates to major returns for Rockstar, not only for the base game itself, but in microtransactions found in the game’s online mode. Shark cash cards can be bought to give players a quick cash boost, from as little as one hundred thousand dollars up to eight million dollars. Getting lots of money opens up access to the best vehicles and locations the game has to offer. Simply put: if you don’t have money, you can’t have fun. It’s a technique that Rockstar has found great success in, almost every player has bought Shark cash cards at one point, and if they were to make a new game, Rockstar would risk losing this seemingly never ending cash flow.
Another reason why Rockstar may not be working on GTA VI, Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar is a meticulous and patient studio, wanting to work on only one game at a time, giving it their signature polish that fans have come to expect from Rockstar. Only when they feel finished with Red Dead Redemption 2 may they feel like working on their next game, and even then it may not be in the Grand Theft Auto franchise.
In spite of all this, fans are still exchanging rumors around this seemingly elusive game. As mentioned before, none of them have been confirmed by Rockstar themselves, so the validity of these leaks may not be one hundred percent. One of the most talked about points is the potential location for the next game. Areas such as Washington DC, Miami, even possibly returning to Vice City. Though there are also whispers of far off locations such as Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, and even Puerto Rico.
From locations to characters, word is nil on who we can expect to play as if Grand Theft Auto six ever comes out. At the moment the strongest rumor is that the game will feature two female playable protagonists. If this leak can be trusted, that would mark a first for the game’s history. Still, nothing official has been confirmed by Rockstar, so the most that fans can to is wait and hope that there will be another installment in the Grand Theft Auto story sooner rather than later. One thing is for sure, fans are following Rockstar’s every move.
