GTA 6 release date,
You read it write! The most anticipated game that everyone adores is around the corners and rumors have it that it may fall upon us very soon in the next decade. As per the leaks, GTA 6 development had been started way long back in 2012, but there was a delay as Rockstar games had their focus on Red Dead Redemption 2.

When is Grand Theft Auto VI release date?

The actual development started in 2015 and from then Rockstar has posted many new job openings that might be connected to the development of GTA 6. There isn't much concrete information on the workings of Grand Theft Auto VI.

The good folks at Rockstar, as usual, aren't saying a word. Even so, there have been leaks before, and there will be leaks again. We don't know for sure when it will be released, but it's safe to say GTA 6 will be exclusive to next generation consoles such as PS5 and XBOX Series X.

As per the current timelines by Rockstar, the devs have started working on improved GTA V. It will be designed for next gen consoles. Due to the circumstances and restrictions imposed by COVID-19 plus the enhanced GTA 5, the timeline of GTA 6 release date will be pushed further.

Keeping all the constraints in mind, it is safe to assume that Grand Theft Auto VI will not release until late 2022 or early 2023.

GTA 6 Leaks & Rumors

Leaks about GTA 5 have been on sites like Reddit, and many of them turned out to be true while others didn't. Here's what the new, and exciting GTA 6 may have in store. A Reddit user named jackOLantern1982 has posted in detail of what apparently will be included in the next Grand Theft Auto game.

GTA 6 Map

The codename for this project was “Project Americas”. The map is said to have a new location entry as London and likely to have Vice City (probably for some missions). There was also a new fictional location based on Rio de Janeiro. The game is likely to be set in the 1970s-1980s. Along with missions to Liberty City if all this is true GTA 6 is going to have a map like we've never seen before.

GTA 6 Story

Heavily influenced by the hit Netflix series "Narcos", the game takes on a 70s, 80s vibe. You play as future drug lord Ricardo, and run the streets of Vice City with locations supposedly taking place in Rio de Janeiro. There is also a giant prison that will play a major part in the game.

There have been many supposed leaks about a female protagonist but the user sticks to the point that "Ricardo", a wannabe drug lord will be the only protagonist and another key character "Kacey" will be the narrative. Ricardo will start as a grunt doing runs as a cocaine smuggler from Vice City to South American area before making connections with big-time drug lords and making his way up the ladder. If the rumors about Narcos turn out true, it will make the fans go crazy.

That's not all, it's also said this Grand Theft Auto will be far more realistic, and challenging than before in that you will no longer be allowed to carry your arsenal of weapons in your pocket. Instead, you will need to put them in the trunk of your car. Even the weather will be more lifelike. It will be somewhat like Red Dead Redemption 2.

There, will also be tons of subtitle readings, like watching an episode of Narcos. The game will feature a "chapter system" just like Red Dead Redemption 2. Also, the leaks claim that the player's car will behave like Red Dead Redemption 2's horse, serving as mobile storage as well as a transport.

The weather has a heavy focus too with all the hurricanes and floods. The buildings and vehicles will change over the eras and vintage vehicle prices will also increase. The plot of the game is said to be much like Breaking Bad and The Ozarks with a crazy twist. Also, it will have twice the number of dialogue as GTA 5.

In the end, you'll find plenty of predictions online, but like I stated before nothing is official, and everything is all speculation until Rockstar decides to release it. The only guarantee is that Rockstar will make a new GTA, it will be awesome, and will be played on next generation consoles PS5 and XBOX Series X.
