A lot of rumors have been sprouting all over the internet about the upcoming Grand Theft Auto title, including a fake release date and numerous failed photoshop jobs depicting a disk cover managed to get released to the public and this made gamers skip a heartbeat. But because none of them proved to be true, we’re here to discuss 8 of the possible things Rockstar is planning to put into GTA 6. Even though we’re not certain of anything as of yet. So, keep your fingers crossed and hope good things will happen!
Release Date in 2022
Because we know this is one of the first questions that comes to mind when thinking about the upcoming Grand Theft Auto title, we’re going to cut to the chase and tell you that we’re not going to see any new heists until 2022. From what could be gathered from online trusted sources, Rockstar is most probably going to release the sixth installment of the series just in time for the new generation of consoles so this is why they’re not hurrying things along.
Flights between US and South America
It seems that one of the novelties that this new game will bring will be a series of missions that will likely take pace somewhere in South America, the player will have to take a flight from the US in order to reach the exotic destination where the next mission will take place. This is apparently a real possibility and we truly hope that this feature will be included in the final game because it sounds so good that we simply can’t wait to experience such an amazing change of scenery.
It is believed that this time Rockstar is going to dive into stories involving mobs and drug trafficking, drawing inspiration from the success of Netflix’s Narcos. While they have already experimented with more mature themes in the other GTA titles, tackling the subject of narcotics is definitely way more sensitive and might raise a series of eyebrows upon release. However, there’s no doubt that the release of GTA 6 is definitely going to stir up some controversy somewhere.
Massive Map: All America
Another assumption that was wildly present across the web is that this ultra-expected gaming title will spread across a massive map and will have an extensive world that is going to include all of America. Most probably the players will be able to travel between locations and take part in instanced missions across a number of different cities, each and every time enjoying a varied and entertaining scenery where major action scenes will play off.
Set in Vice City
Even though the storyline might take the protagonist throughout the two Americas, the main action will most likely be set in Vice City, thus Rockstar making a return to their origins and bringing back a lot of memories from the earlier title from the GTA series. It remains to be seen if this presumption is really going to become a reality; but chances are that it will be, from what we could gather reading and listening to interviews with the developers. So, get ready to search for those nostalgic easter eggs reminding you of the original GTA Vice City.
A Female Protagonist
When Dan Houser, vice president of Rockstar, was asked if they ever thought about introducing a female character in GTA 5, he answered that it didn’t necessarily seem natural for the plotline of that particular title but, in the future, they are definitely thinking of giving the lead to a strong lady figure. Now, the sensible conclusion is that the sixth title in the famous GTA series is most probably going to break the ice and have at least a female character included in the cast.
Playing as a Cop or as a Criminal
Yet another idea that makes our heart jump with joy: being able to play either as a cop or as a criminal would be one of the most wonderful surprises Rockstar could ever unveil, this dual storyline being a true gem when it comes to gameplay variety and overall immersion into the story. Let’s hope that we can get this piece of news confirmed as soon as possible because it’s really something we are looking forward to in the new GTA 6. We also hope to see some great undercover cop action.
Will Take Place in the 70’s/80’s
Many people tend to believe that the upcoming Grand Theft Auto title will take place in the 70’s or the 80’s, the retro vibe of these periods giving an entirely unique feeling to the whole gaming title in its entirety. Will Rockstar go for the vintage look, or give us modern, even electric, cars to play around with? We have to admit that GTA 6 is one of the most expected gaming titles of the future and we simply cannot wait until new information will surface about this highly anticipated game.
