The subsequent GTA was introduced in February, when Rockstar mentioned that growth of the unnamed sport (which we’re calling GTA 6 for now) is “nicely underway.” Rockstar mother or father Take-Two mentioned precisely the identical factor immediately—growth remains to be “nicely underway”—and added that the sport goes to be actually good, too.
“With growth of the subsequent entry within the Grand Theft Auto collection nicely underway, the Rockstar Video games staff is decided to as soon as once more set inventive benchmarks for the collection, our trade, and for all leisure, simply because the label has performed with each certainly one of their frontline releases,” mentioned Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick throughout immediately’s monetary replace.
Again in February, Rockstar mentioned that its aim with GTA 6 was to “considerably transfer past” its earlier achievements. Take-Two’s remark about setting inventive benchmarks is somewhat bolder. At first I believed, “Effectively, yeah, the GTA video games are clearly vital cultural occasions,” however the extra I thought of it, the extra I questioned what a inventive benchmark was, and if GTA had actually ever set any “for all leisure.” It has set the inventive benchmark for doing a Man Ritchie-ish factor as an open world videogame, for certain.
It is in all probability not value overanalyzing, however that is all that was mentioned, I am afraid. The meager remark was maybe only a method to preempt questions and settle issues down following the latest Bloomberg report which claimed to have a number of particulars about GTA 6, specifically that it’ll embody a feminine protagonist and happen in a fictionalized Miami. Rockstar hasn’t confirmed or denied the accuracy of that report.
Bloomberg additionally mentioned that GTA 6’s scope needed to be “reeled in” in some unspecified time in the future, however that it will be up to date with “new missions and cities regularly,” so after launch it might transfer again towards its pre-reeling-in scale. Even at launch, although, the publication says that GTA 6 will embody extra inside places than any earlier GTA.
The Bloomberg report additionally describes a Rockstar that has develop into a greater, if not flawless, place to work in latest occasions—you’ll find the complete article right here (opens in new tab).
We do not know when GTA 6 can be out, however the two “nicely underway” feedback at the least put it nearer to us than The Elder Scrolls 6, which was nonetheless in “pre-production” as of June.
