So far, the only things we base the existence of GTA 6 on are rumors. Grand Theft Auto represents an action-adventure video game series which was first launched back in 1997 and it was developed by DMA Design. Right now, it is being developed by Rockstar North and published by another division, Rockstar Games.
GTA gained popularity as an open-world game that focuses on driving all kinds of vehicles and third-person shooting in the criminal underbelly. Grand Theft Auto is one of the critically acclaimed and best-selling series of all time and it also gathered a massive fan-base. Until now, we came across 11 stand-alone games and four expansion packs.
What we know so far
Despite the fact that Rockstar Games must be probably knee-deep in all the things involved with Red Dead Redemption 2, there is still a large chance that we could see a new GTA down the pipeline. It would make sense since GTA 5 represented one of the most successful game releases in the whole world, so there is already a massive fan-base for it.
Moving on, this is just guesswork and rumors for now since Rockstar Games didn’t dropped any concrete hints yet. During an interview with Develop Magazine, Rockstar President Leslie Benzies did all but confirm the game in 2013. She said that “we don’t know what GTA 6 will be, but we’ve got some ideas. We’ve got about 45 years’ worth of ideas we want to do. We’ll pick the right ones.”
According to what The Know said, Grand Theft Auto 6 is definitely in the works as it apparently goes under the code name Project Americas. However, this is still a single source report, so you should take it all with a pinch of all.
