GTA 6 news, official Rockstar updates, and all the rumors

GTA 6 is officially happening and is currently in development. Earlier this year, developer Rockstar Games confirmed this. “Active development continues for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series.” However, it was a small note in a recent blog post rather than a full description.

So many GTA 6 rumors and rumors have been circulating over the years that it feels surreal for anything to be officially confirmed. We’ve had leaks hinting at the game’s story, setting, features, and other details, so it will be exciting to see Rockstar’s next reveal.

The most recent information fans received was from a Rockstar job listing that pointed to incredible detail and “large-scale destruction” for GTA 6. Also, interestingly enough, GTA fans think this San Andreas easter egg is the first look at GTA 6, so potentially some sort of official reveal could come this year.

But that’s not all. Read on for all the GTA 6 rumors circulating so far.

When is the GTA 6 release date?

Long story short: If Rockstar announced GTA 6 the day after Red Dead Redemption 2’s release (October 26, 2018 – put it in your diary), then we’d be waiting based on the historical delays between GTA console announcements and release. 22 months – i.e. August 2020. Of course, Rockstar didn’t do that. In fact, it didn’t do anything until February 2022, when Rockstar confirmed it was working on the game. This makes any release window difficult to predict. But a new leak suggests it won’t come before the end of 2024.

We have approximated some dates, but this table shows the difference between 'Announcement' and 'Launch' for GTA games and the time between main entries.

How will GTA 6 be configured? Here are all the rumors

There have been several rumors about possible GTA 6 location points, including returning to Vice City or traversing across the US.

The latest rumors, arriving in June 2021, suggest that the GTA 6 setting will be a modern-day recreation of Vice City – a rumor later confirmed by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier.

In March 2021, Tom Henderson, an insider with a great track record, claimed that GTA 6 will take place in modern times. When asked by someone on Twitter, Henderson I retweeted the question and he simply said, “It wasn’t in the 80s and it’s modern.”

This was supplemented by an image of a house that apparently appeared in the remastered edition of GTA San Andreas. The house photo was a completely new addition to the game, causing speculation that it was a mockery for GTA 6. day. vice city.

But in 2020, a major GTA 6 leak has surfaced. reddit. User JackOLantern1982 has posted a total of 23 details about Rockstar’s upcoming game. In addition to confirming that it is in development, they say the codename is Project Americas as the game will take place in several countries: namely, Brazil, in a fictional city based in Rio de Janeiro, and Vice City in the USA. The report suggested that the relevant narrative would be heavily influenced by Netflix’s Narcos (an outstanding series about the origins of the cocaine trade).

The leak suggested building your own drug empire using mechanics similar to Vice City Stories, but much more in-depth – it’s more like GTA Online, but bigger than that. Your vehicle will run like the horse in Red Dead Redemption 2, allowing you to store your gear in the trunk instead of your character. According to this leak, the game will take place in the 1970s – 80s, when buildings changed/deteriorated over time and weather conditions were another heavy focus.

However, another potential leak in Fireden suggests it’s a modern Liberty City setting for GTA 6, reminiscent of the game’s prequel The Wire. This also suggests that it is based on a drug ring, making it a consistent theme of all leaks.

A few years ago, news that a London setting for GTA 6 was due to Rockstar Games potentially brought the next game to its studio’s doorstep. Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser said in an interview with Polygon in September 2013:

“Right now, the DNA of GTA seems to be contemporary, American, Anglophone, because that’s what it’s been up to now.”

This has led many to speculate that the GTA could be inspired from the outside or even make its way back to the UK. However, Houser also said in an interview with The Guardian that same month that GTA will not return to London:

“My hunch for us was that GTA London was cool back then, but games were more limited back then,” Houser said. “We’d love to make a game these days in England, in London, whatever, but I don’t know if it’s going to be a GTA game. I think there are a lot of great stories we could tell about the UK, great environments to showcase, great game mechanics that might lean towards England – I just don’t think it’s necessarily going to be a GTA.”

According to a source who spoke to TechRadar in March 2016, Rockstar visited the Japanese capital a few years ago as an important trip for a game called GTA: Tokyo. Apparently, the idea for the game was eventually shelved, but before that, the studio met with the locals, took a ton of photos, and wanted to get a good idea of ​​the city before embarking on this particular game journey.

The source claimed that Rockstar was “serious” about a game with a Japanese setting, and even went so far as to trademark the names GTA: Toyko, GTA: Bogota, and mysteriously GTA: Sin City in 2003. GTA 3 and Vice City, but the road system was seen as an issue and was just one of the reasons the idea was eventually dropped.

GTA 6 rumors are pretty wide-ranging right now, so let’s start with some historical information. So far, GTA games have been installed in the following locations:

  • Liberty City – GTA 3, GTA 4, Lost and Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony
  • Vice City – GTA Vice City
  • San Andreas / Los Santos – GTA: San Andreas, GTA 5

If history is repeating itself, Vice City or Liberty City seem like the most likely candidates for a comeback… . Speaking to Rockstar’s Leslie Benzies via the GTA GTA YouTube show GTAVoclock in 2013, the goal of GTA Online was “This world, World. We’re just going to add new things to it, new places all the time.”

What will be the story of GTA 6?

As for the story of GTA 6, there are many rumors in that episode, from multiple heroes to a single male hero.

The 2020 Reddit leak suggested that it would take place in the 1970s/80s and would feature a single male protagonist, an avid drug dealer named “Ricardo”. Another key character named “Kacey” is also part of the narrative. According to this leak, you’ll start out as a con man who runs from Vice City to the new great South American region as a cocaine smuggler before connecting with major dealers and ascending with the story spanning multiple cities. Reportedly, a young Martin Madrazo will look like his father, who was a major drug dealer at the time. You are doing some missions for the Madrazo family that involve attacking other gangs. The story will also address issues such as HIV and the migrant crisis, as in the 1970s/80s.

The previous Fireden leak said it will feature four main characters – two police officers and two gang members. This leak claims that the main story is split up after a while, with the criminal side having a kind of crime empire building sandbox (think Fallout 4 with Sims), while the police side being more of an action game. traditional with a bit of LA. Black twist.

The latest leaks from June 2021 claim that the modern version of Vice City will feature multiple playable heroes, including a “tech-savvy woman” as the game’s map grows and changes over time – a Fortnite. Since then, Schreier has confirmed nearly all of these claims, saying on Twitter (via Resetera).

Interestingly, Rockstar didn’t refuse to use multiple heroes for future endeavors by emulating the GTA 5 trio. Speaking after the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, which had only one playable character in Arthur Morgan, Rockstar told jeuxactu.com: ” Maybe we’ll do it again with another game, but in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re that guy and you’re going to share your adventure.”

What did Rockstar say about GTA 6 on the album?

The former head of Rockstar North made fun of the series’ next entry in 2013 in a four-part interview with Develop magazine that kicked off the rumor online:

“We don’t know what GTA 6 will be, but we have some ideas,” Benzies said in the interview. “We have about 45 years of ideas that we want to build. We will choose the right ones. It comes from the idea first. Where to define is the first question. This then defines the tasks; You do things differently in Los Angeles than you do in New York or Miami. The map and the story work together, and the story is a basic flow of how it works so you can layer the task.”

Of course, Benzies didn’t reveal much about how GTA 6 will take shape, leaving Rockstar North in pretty tough conditions. But it’s unlikely that Rockstar will end the tried-and-true development process for the GTA series, where building a world with layered characters and structures comes first. GTA 5 was created by over 1,000 developers based in studios around the world, so changing the model would be a bold move.

Will GTA 6 PC version be released?

At this stage, it’s pretty clear that GTA 6 will be a PS5 and Xbox Series X version, especially in light of the next-gen GTA 5 posting for console and PC. But whether a GTA 6 PC port will come out at the same time as its console counterparts is not so simple.

GTA 5 and GTA 4 have arrived on PC, so you’d expect GTA 6 to have a PC port as well. It may not be released at the same time, but that extra polish and development time has been worth it so far, so I hope PC fans are willing to wait a bit again.

GTA 6 news, official Rockstar updates, and all the rumors

GTA 6 is officially happening, and it’s in development right now. Earlier this year, developer Rockstar Games confirmed that “active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway.” However, it was a tiny note in a recent blog post, rather than a full-blown reveal. 
For years now there have been so many GTA 6 rumors and gossip doing the rounds that it feels surreal to have anything officially confirmed. We’ve had leaks suggesting elements of the game’s story, setting, features, and other details, so it will be exciting to see what’s revealed next by Rockstar. 
The last bit of info fans got was from a Rockstar job listing, which hints at incredible detail and “large-scale destruction” for GTA 6. That could be quite the upgrade from what you can currently experience in GTA 5 and GTA Online. Plus, interestingly, GTA fans think this San Andreas easter egg is their first look at GTA 6, so potentially some kind of official reveal might come later this year. 
But, that’s not all. Keep reading for all GTA 6 rumors circulating so far.
When could the GTA 6 release date be?
Long story short: if Rockstar had announced  GTA 6 the day after Red Dead Redemption 2 came out (October 26, 2018 – put it in your diary), then based on historical delays between console GTA announcements and release, we’d be waiting around 22 months – so August 2020. Of course, Rockstar didn’t do that. It didn’t do anything, in fact, until February 2022 when Rockstar confirmed it was working on the game. That makes it difficult to predict any sort of release window. However, a new leak suggests that it won’t arrive before the end of 2024.

What will the GTA 6 setting be? Here are all the rumors

There have been several rumors about potential GTA 6 location spots, including heading back to Vice City or being set across the entirety of the US. 
The latest rumors that arrived in June 2021 suggest that the GTA 6 setting will be a modern-day recreation of Vice City – a rumor that has been later corroborated by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier. 
In March 2021, Tom Henderson, a tipster with a great track record, stated that GTA 6 will be set in the modern-day. When asked by someone on Twitter, Henderson retweeted their question and simply said “It’s not set in the 1980s and is modern”.
This has seemingly been corroborated by an image of a house that has appeared in the remastered edition of GTA San Andreas. The photo of the house was a brand new addition to the game, and caused speculation that it was a tease for GTA 6. However, allegedly someone has been able to verify that it is indeed from GTA 6, which adds fuel to the idea that it’s set in modern-day Vice City.

Back in 2020 though, a huge GTA 6 leak emerged via Reddit. User JackOLantern1982 relayed a grand total of 23 details about Rockstar’s upcoming game. As well as confirming that it’s in development, they say that its codename is Project Americas as the game will take place over multiple countries: namely, Brazil in a fictional city based on Rio de Janeiro and Vice City in the US. The report suggested that the associated narrative would be heavily influenced by Netflix’s Narcos (which is a phenomenal series about the origins of the cocaine trade). 
The leak suggested that you’ll be building up your own drug empire, using a mechanic similar to that of Vice City Stories, but much more in-depth – more akin to, but bigger than, GTA Online. Your vehicle will function like the horse in Red Dead Redemption 2, allowing you to store your equipment in the trunk, rather than stashed on your character. According to this leak, the game will be set in the 1970 – 80s, with buildings changing / degrading over time, and weather being another heavy focus.

Another separate potential leak on Fireden though, suggests it’s a modern-day Liberty City setting for GTA 6, with the beginning of the game reminiscent of TV show, The Wire. It does suggest it’s also based on a drug ring, making that a consistent theme of all the leaks. 
Way back a few years ago, reports of a London setting for GTA 6 originated via Rockstar Games, putting the next game potentially right on the doorstep of its own studio. Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser said the following back in September 2013 in an interview with Polygon:
“At the moment, it feels like GTA’s DNA is contemporary-ish, American-ish, English-speaking-ish, because that’s what it has been… but that doesn’t necessarily limit it to those, that’s just what we’ve done so far.”
This led many to speculate that GTA may be seeking outside inspiration, or even returning to the UK. However, Houser also said that GTA wouldn’t return to London in an interview with The Guardian that very same month:
“I think for us, my gut feeling is, GTA London was cool for the time, but games were more limited then,” said Houser. “These days I think we would love to set a game in the UK, set in London, whatever, but I don’t know if it would be a GTA game. I think there are plenty of great stories we could tell about the UK, great environments to showcase, great gameplay mechanics that could have a UK bent to them – I just don’t think it would be a GTA necessarily.”
According to a source speaking to TechRadar back in March 2016, Rockstar visited the Japanese capital as a reference trip for a game entitled GTA: Tokyo several years ago. Apparently the idea for the game was eventually pulled, but before that the studio met up with locals, took a ton of pictures and wanted to get a good feel for the city before embarking on that particular gaming journey. 
The source stated that Rockstar was “serious” about a game with a Japanese setting, and even went as far as to trademark the names GTA: Toyko, GTA: Bogota and also, mysteriously, GTA: Sin City back in 2003. That was around the time of GTA 3 and Vice City, but the road system was seen as a problem and was just one of the reasons why the idea was eventually abandoned.
The GTA 6 rumors are pretty far-reaching right now, so let’s start with some historical insight. So far, GTA games have been set in the following locations:
Liberty City – GTA 3, GTA 4, Lost and Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony
Vice City – GTA Vice City
San Andreas / Los Santos – GTA: San Andreas, GTA 5
If history was to repeat, Vice City or Liberty City feel like the most likely candidates for a return… but it’s possible the game will explore new locations, which feels likelier in light of expectations set by GTA Online i.e. the world won’t get smaller. Speaking to Rockstar’s Leslie Benzies in 2013, via the YouTube GTA show GTAVoclock, he stated that the ambition for GTA Online was “To grow this world until it’s the world. We’re just going to add on new things to it, new places all the time”.
What will the GTA 6 story be?

As for the GTA 6 story, there are plenty of rumors in that department too, from multiple protagonists to a single male hero. 
The 2020 Reddit leak suggested it would set in the 1970s/80s and feature a single, male protagonist, who’s an up and coming drug lord-wannabe named “Ricardo”. Another key character called “Kacey” is a part of the narrative. According to that leak, you’ll start off as a grunt doing runs as a cocaine smuggler from Vice City to the new large South American area before making connections with big-time drug lords and making your way up, with the story encompassing multiple cities. Allegedly, a younger Martin Madrazo will make an appearance as will his father who is a big drug lord at the time. You do some missions for the Madrazo family involving hits on other gangs. The story will also reportedly tackle topics like HIV and the immigration crisis as it was in the 1970/80s.
The earlier Fireden leak though said it would feature four main characters – two police and two gang members. That leak states that the main storyline splits after a while, with the criminal side having a sort of a sandbox build-a-crime-empire (think Fallout 4 meets the Sims), while the police side is more of a traditional action game with a little twist of LA Noire.
The latest leaks, from June 2021, state that the modern-day Vice City version would feature multiple playable protagonists, including a “tech-savvy woman”, with the game’s map growing and changing over time – a la Fortnite. Schreier has since corroborated almost all of those claims, saying on Twitter (via Resetera). 
Interestingly, Rockstar itself hasn’t ruled out the use of multiple protagonists for future endeavors – mimicking the GTA 5 trio. Speaking after the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, which has only one playable character in Arthur Morgan, Rockstar told jeuxactu.com, “Maybe we will do it again with another game, but in Red Dead Redemption 2, you are this man and you will share his adventure”.
What has Rockstar said about GTA 6 on the record?
Rockstar North’s former President teased the next series entry back in 2013 in a four-part interview with Develop magazine, which got the online rumour mill started:
“We don’t know what GTA 6 will be, but we’ve got some ideas,” said Benzies in the interview. “We’ve got about 45 years’ worth of ideas we want to do. We’ll pick the right ones. It comes from the idea first. Where it is going to be set is the first question. That then defines the missions; you’re doing different things in LA than in New York or Miami. The map and story get worked up together, and the story is a basic flow of how it works out so you can layer the mission in.”
Of course, Benzies didn’t give much away about what form GTA 6 will take and left Rockstar North in fairly acrimonious circumstances. However, it’s unlikely that Rockstar will rip up the GTA series’ tried-and-tested development process, where building a world comes first with characters and structures layered on top. GTA 5 was created by 1000+ developers based across studios worldwide, so it’d be a brave move to change the template. 
Will there be a GTA 6 PC release?

It’s pretty clear at this stage that GTA 6 will be a PS5 and Xbox Series X release, especially in light of the upcoming GTA 5 next-gen post for the console and PC. However, whether a GTA 6 PC port will be released at the same time as its console counterparts isn’t quite as straightforward. 
GTA 5 and GTA 4 both eventually made their way to PC, so you’d hope that a GTA 6 PC port also happens. It may not have a simultaneous launch, but that extra bit of polish and development time has paid off so far, so hopefully PC fans are willing to wait a little bit again.
