If you’re excited about the next Grand Theft Auto game, you’re not alone! Countless fans of the series are asking the same question at this point: when is GTA 6 coming out? While publisher Rockstar Games hasn’t yet announced a release date, there have been some recent hints released to indicate that we could see the next installment in 2023 or 2025 – which may surprise some people. Here’s what we know so far, including why you might have to wait a while to play GTA 6.
What will the Grand Theft Auto VI story be about?
There are lots of questions about what the Grand Theft Auto VI story will be about. Some people say that the next installment will focus on a protagonist and his/her story. Others speculate that the Grand Theft Auto VI will center around famous (and infamous) figures, or just an eclectic mix of stories all collected into one game. Until there’s an official announcement.
Themes in GTA VI
We’ve heard the hype over when GTA VI will come out and the speculation on what its theme will be. While there’s no official release date, it looks like players can expect new details in the fall. We may not know exactly when GTA VI will be released but there are some clues that we might be able to put together to help guess when.
Will there be a female protagonist in Grand Theft Auto VI?
Grand Theft Auto VI has not been confirmed yet but there are a few things we know. First, the game could be anywhere in between 2023 and 2025. Next, Rockstar Games has had a tendency to take their time with major projects such as this. Most people agree that the release of Grand Theft Auto V should not be an indicator of when Grand Theft Auto VI will be released because it was set up (in 2012) and they didn’t start production on it until 2013-2014 which made it 5 years from idea to execution rather than 4 years. Lastly, if GTA VI comes out before 2023 there will most likely be female protagonist available for selection.
Vehicles in GTA VI
GTA VI vehicles will include the following: the 2020 Ford GT, 2020 Dodge Challenger, 2020 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, 2020 Lamborghini Diablo SVJ, 2020 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera SVR, 2016 Shelby Cobra GT350-R.
New radio stations for GTA VI
New radio stations in GTA VI have been confirmed. Rockstar Games has a reputation for adding popular music to GTA’s radio stations and they’re releasing more than just the usual pop, rap, and country stations like previous iterations of the game. True Crime: Streets of LA, a game released by Rockstar in 2003 added several new stations including punk rock and electronica stations. Currently this rumor remains unconfirmed but we can only hope that it’s true!
Self-sufficiency as an added gameplay mechanic in Grand Theft Auto VI
The biggest announcement from the recent gaming conference was that the upcoming game will have added self-sufficiency as an additional gameplay mechanic. Previously, Grand Theft Auto games gave players various ways to satisfy their hunger and thirst so that they didn’t need to go on missions until they had reached a level of player exhaustion or starvation. When the self-sufficiency mechanic was announced at this year’s E3 conference, it caused much speculation among gamers. With no word yet as to whether this new gameplay mechanic will be available on consoles, time might just be running out for GTA fans waiting for their next fix of criminal activity in San Andreas.
Will there be multiplayer in Grand Theft Auto VI?
You won’t find out for sure just yet, but if the gaming community’s predictions are correct, there will be multiplayer in Grand Theft Auto VI.
