Grand Theft Auto VI has been an unlimited source of rumors during this year. It seems like the huge success of Grand Theft Auto Online served only to encourage talks about what will the sixth series of this game will bring to fans. Many gaming journalists seem to agree with the same conclusion; Gamers are looking at least two years more of waiting if Rockstar Games follow their regular release schedule.
Sony’s week of announcements has brought many surprises even if it has just started, but it has also sparked even more rumors on important subjects among the gaming community. Grand Theft Auto V has been the jewel in the crown of Rockstar Games since its update to Grand Theft Auto Online, but rumors about the next release of the series had felt that spark since many fans expected the game to be announced this week as one of the gen-transition games.
Take-Two Interactive, the grandfather behind Rockstar Games, has remained silent on this regard and has only mentioned that a couple of new licenses are being registered, but there was no specific mention about GTA.
Gaming groups around the world are commenting on what they expectations are regarding this new game in the franchise. Some gaming groups are very intuitive as the improvements that many expect for the physics engine following what we have seen so far in the online version of GTA 5. Nonetheless, Others also have commented that Rockstar wants to focus on a new geographical environment for the franchise choosing London as their new base, providing with a lot more interesting approach on crime.
Last, but not least, there are the wild yet fascinating rumors about a possible female protagonist that will have a unique personality, letting players choose to her approach to solving problems with more than just guns or money.
Rockstar has taken 4 or 5 years to release every entry in the franchise, and this time, experts expect no difference from that. Also, giving the fact that it has been barely three years (2 if you take into account GTA: Online release) since the last entry, we are looking forward to an announcement in 2017 and a possibly release date of 2018.
What is more, most entries in the franchise are done at the begging or ending of a console generation and considering the recent release of the slim version of the PlayStation 4, at least three more years of the current gen will have to pass. These are not great signs for a soon announcement (let alone the possibility of the release) of the next Grand Theft Auto VI, but the Internet will still provide whole new interesting rumors to keep gamers entertain while they keep their watch.
