Grand Theft Auto 6 is an upcoming video game that has had a lot of rumors for a while. The game’s fanatics have been floating gossips since Rockstar confirmed that they had started working on the title.
Initially, the release date was rumored to be in 2018 but renewed tales have emerged speculating the sequel may be out in 2019. GTA V has made fans to crave for more titles from Rockstar. The game has enjoyed much success and is one of the fans favorite in the popular series. The latest release is barely a year old and fans can’t stop speaking of GTA 6. Users and tech activists pick 2019 or early 2020 as the most likely time in consideration that the latest title Grand Theft Auto V was launched officially in 2013 and its PC rendition released in 2015, thus releasing Grand Theft Auto 6 in 2018 will be impossible due to time factors. Rockstar may not be ready by then.
Another barrier to the release is the new emergence of Red Dead Redemption 2. Take Two Entertainment has decided to have their franchises take turns and now it’s apparent that Red Dead Redemption 2 will come before the open world crime game. Actually, it’s no longer a rumor, Rockstar Games has confirmed that they are working to release the game (Red Dead Redemption 2) in 2017. And with the attention shifted to the new game Grand Theft Auto 6 release will be delayed a little bit longer.

Regarding how the game will look like, Rockstar has refused to give away any concrete information either. That lack of facts has fueled rumors speculating how the next installment will be like. One of the most conspicuous rumors is the protagonist. People are suspecting the game may have a female character at the epicenter of the storyline as other sequels in the series have had male protagonists. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are likely to be part of the game.
Another rumored part of the game is the setting. So far, the development of Grand Theft Auto 6 is still in the early stages and maybe developers have not decided on where to base it or the decision has been made but the information hidden from the public. Nonetheless, that has not stopped innumerable rumors floating about the settings of the upcoming video game. Reports claim that the game will be set in a new city. As the current title that is based in real time city specifically Los Angeles (named Santos Angeles in the game), Grand Theft Auto 6 will also be based in a real life setting. The game’s enthusiasts want Rockstar to set GTA 6 in a city they have never explored before.
Virtual Reality is a fast growing technology in the field of gaming. In that respect, rumors have been linking the technology with the upcoming Rockstar installment. However, there is nothing to substantiate that still. Consoles creators Sony and Microsoft have embraced some new technologies including HDR and 4K support, and of course the VR. Grand Theft Auto 6 may be made to support these technologies but all will depend on the decision of the development team.
The success of GTA V has positively affected the way Rockstar will be releasing their future games. Though the series major platform is on consoles, GTA 6 may launch on PCs as well. However, as at now, Rockstar is expected to release the game on the new generation consoles Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One as well as Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles.
