(binhkhipho.vn) - It feels lượt thích only yesterday that Rockstar Games was releasing its critically-acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2, letting us loose into lớn a massive frontier world of bandits and shoot-outs. It surely can"t have been that long beforehvà when it mix loose the insanely successful Grand Theft Aukhổng lồ 5, can it?

Well, it very much can, actually. GTA 5 may have since been re-released lớn lengthen its lifespan, but it originally came out in 2013. A lot has changed since then, and with a new generation of consoles finally released, comprised of the PS5 và Xbox Series X& S, rumours are starting to lớn spin that the next game in Rockstar"s most famous franchise could be on its way.

We"ve sầu gathered everything we know about Grvà Theft Aukhổng lồ 6 right here for your delectation — let"s get down khổng lồ it.

GTA 6 release date

Starting with possible release dates, it"s worth giving you a bit of background. While GTA 5 released in 2013, Rockstar couldn"t immediately turn its full attention to developing a sequel. It apparently did start work on GTA 6 in năm trước, but meanwhile had the small matter of Red Dead Redemption 2 khổng lồ make, let alone the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA 5, and the PC và Google Stadia versions of Red Dead Redemption 2.

All of those take work, but are now out of the way. That"s the xúc tích applied to a recent leak, purportedly from a playtester who"s been in contact with GTA 6 during development. That source, which remains uncorroborated, suggests that Rockstar is aiming for a2021 release date.

Now that we"re inkhổng lồ 2021, we"re not hugely confident about that, though - that would mean Rockstar announcing & releasing the game within a year, which isn"t too comtháng, and we"ve sầu heard nothing official yet.

Nonetheless, recent rumours suggest that a 2021 teaser announcement could be cthảm bại, thanks lớn some strange artwork teases posted by the developer và a "private" video clip found lurking on its YouTube channel. Still, we think it"s most likely that the game will be fully released in 2022, taking Rockstar"s trademark delays inlớn trương mục.

(1/2)With the help of
SWEGTA"s new YouTube video clip, I finally realized that Rockstar is gearing up to lớn announce something. Now at GTAVINR we sincerely hope it"s GTA 6. With a good chance that it will be but putting all the pieces together, a few months ago R* posted a job listing

That all said, another kernel of information can apply here, in the form of Rockstar North"s 2020 claims for UK Tax Relief. There"s a bit of controversy rumbling over whether you can really Điện thoại tư vấn the likes of GTA and Red Dead Redemption 2 "culturally British", as the tax scheme requires, but nonetheless Rockstar"s accounting shows a steady flow of tax relief in recent years.

As pointed out by Tax Watch, this is suggestive of continuous development, & some are using it as an indication that GTA 6 is underway. That"s a bit of a stretch, since the tax clalặng is entirely generic và doesn"t mention any franchises, but still - we know they"re up to lớn something!

Now, there"s another option here - 2K, which publishes the Grvà Theft Auto lớn series, recently updated its fiscal plans khổng lồ allow for a much-increased spover on sale in 2023, some time off for now. In fact, it expects lớn spover double what it has planned for 2021 & 2022. That"s fuelled speculation that it expects khổng lồ be sale the next GTA game in 2023, và will be spending big bucks on it.

We also had even more fuel poured onlớn the fire by a report from Jason Schreier over at Kotaku, looking as he had before at the work culture at Rockstar, which is famously demanding. The report mentions that according khổng lồ his sources the next Grvà Theft Auto is indeed in the works, but remained at an early stage of development.

Recently, eager fans also spotted that Rockstar had added a new blog post lớn its news section that isn"t currently live sầu - post 62005. They"re hopeful that this means some sort of announcement post is being built at that address. For our money that"s insanely optimistic, but at this stage you can"t blame anyone for getting their hopes up!

Finally, it"s been spotted that Rockstar is in a hiring phase for game testers, something often associated with the final stages of a game"s development. While this could point toward GTA 6 being at an advanced stage, it could of course also be simply required for other projects Rockstar has cooking, lượt thích GTA 5"s next-gen version.

All this adds up to the same picture, roughly - the next GTA is definitely on the way, but you shouldn"t get your hopes raised too high that it"ll appear soon.



This idea had a little bit more detail added to it by an alleged leak, which purportedly came via the friover of a disgruntled ex-Rockstar employee. If the information is khổng lồ be believed, the game will be set in Floridomain authority, và have a map bigger than GTA 5 & Red Dead Redemption 2 combined, covering three cities including Vice City. Players will apparently be able to lớn control four different protagonists, expanding on GTA 5"s three main characters.

u/yctr on Reddit

Another bản đồ leak appears to show more of the whole map, along with a section that fans are speculating could be based on the Kennedy Space Centre, based on its layout. However, as usual there isn"t much lớn validate this as real information.

More intel comes from a Reddit poster that has collated various leaked images together to lớn create a concept of what the maps might look lượt thích. It"s expansive sầu & features a huge ocean - such an empty space that we"re pretty skeptical that it"ll over up being real, unless Rockstar is taking the series in a very new, nautical direction.

Now fresh rumours have sầu circulated that the game"s character roster will include a female playable character for the first time in the series, something that"s long overdue in our minds. The info comes courtesy of Tom Henderson, a longtime leaker who"s made accurate claims in the past.

For the first time ever in a GTA title, GTA 6 will have sầu a playable female and male protagonist. #GTA6 #GTAVI

There have also been suggestions elsewhere that Liberty City (from GTA III), San Andreas (from GTA: San Andreas, natch), & the Midwest could feature, or maybe even all of the above sầu for different sections.

Regardless, expect the game khổng lồ push the boundaries of what the new hardware from Sony & Microsoft is capable of. There"s no guarantee that the game world will be bigger and more detailed than the bản đồ from GTA 5, but that"s certainly how things seem to lớn be trending.


GTA 6 story

The main story of each GTA game so far has involved criminality, as a rule, but the exact flavour is always up for change. A crucial bit of information when it comes to GTA 6"s narrative sầu is that Rockstar"s co-founder, Dan Houser, left the studio in March 2020.

That means that one of the studio"s key tastemakers & writers has departed, someone who, together with his brother Sam, has shaped the franchise"s tone from the very beginning.

Now, on the one h&, given the likely timing of the game there"s a good chance that Dan Houser was able to have solid đầu vào và impact on the script & story before his departure. On the other, if he was on his way out it"s very possible that he wasn"t nearly so involved. That means we could be in for a change of voice for GTA 6.

Exactly how that would manifest is hard to guess at, but it"s an interesting development for Rockstar, that"s for sure. Another recent rumour was started by an old patent filed by Rockstar in 2017:

Now look at this excerpt from a 2017 patent from Rockstar Games.Looks lượt thích we‘ll be able lớn „improve“ neighborhood in the game, & this will change them to lớn be gentrified.Holy shit. pic.twitter.com/gRcT5nhCoR

It sure sounds credible that Rockstar could be looking to lớn tell a story that involves gentrification & the creep of capitalism - fertile ground for some fairly easy satire, dare we say it? A changing thành phố that responds to the players actions in the story, though, is a pretty compelling idea.

The lakiểm tra tidbit khổng lồ surface about the game"s story relates to lớn its setting in time. Since people are speculating that it could return to lớn Vice City, there have been questions over whether the game will be phối in the 1980"s again. According lớn prolific leaker Tom Henderson, though, it"ll be a modern-day title lượt thích GTA V.

It"s not phối in the 1980"s and is modern. https://t.co/iav46Ty35V

Henderson has been proven right a fair few times in the past, so this is an interesting development for sure.We"ll keep adding more details to lớn this round-up as and when new information comes out or actual announcements are made, so be sure to keep checking bachồng.
