Grand Theft Auto VI Is Reportedly In The Works And Rockstar Considered Tokyo Setting

Grand Theft Auto then. I hear people like it. Well there’s good news and then there’s bad news when it comes to one of, if not the most popular game franchises of all time. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first - Rockstar began development on a GTA Tokyo, but the complicated layout of Tokyo’s streets forced them to abandon the project. It was originally intended to come out around the time of Vice City, presumably replaced by San Andreas. It would have been the most remarkable departure yet made for the series, but sadly it wasn’t to be.

Onto the goods though, and while not surprising it’s very nice to hear it; Grand Theft Auto VI is in full production at Rockstar, so we can expect a sequel to come our way soon(ish).

That’s all according to sources close to Techradar, but it all sounds legit. Despite a recent PC port, GTA V launched on consoles all the way back in Autumn 2013, so Rockstar has been toiling away on other projects for close to three years since. The time between mainline outings in the GTA series is usually quite hefty, save for the quick-fire of GTA 3 / Vice City / San Andreas, so I’d estimate it’s going to be 2018 at the earliest.

That said, Grand Theft Auto 5 publisher Take-Two interactive recently said it was going to be at E3 ‘in a big way’. Could this possibly allude to GTA VI, or is it the far more likely prospect of the almost inevitable Red Dead Redemption 2. We certainly know which made more money for Rockstar and will prove the biggest incentive to the higher-ups.

From the sounds of things then GTA VI is likely to be set back in the US if Rockstar is afraid of complicating matters. With California / LA, Miami, and New York City well and truly parodied, where else would like to see Rockstar turn into a violent digital playground? Let us know!

I have to say, my money’s on Las Vegas, but I’d still love to see another at the West Coast with the new, larger environments Rockstar has mastered.

Add a lot of customization, live, detailed city with LOTS of interiors and different citizens, and give me all the free time activities I can do, and many....MANY things to BUY AND SELL; and we have a deal.

Bro, you !^%#ed me up XD I saw this in "Recent debate" and start reading the comments immediately and got confused about why is everyone talking about 2017-18 release. I thought it's some joke that I missed. Then I saw the year comments were posted XD


And it's sad that it's 2021 and we have no news about GTA 6...

I don't care much for size and location. I want a reasonable sized world with every building and room possible to enter one way or another. That would be awesome.

why they dont consider other countries like Iran,Russia etc and it could be very good if this game has seasons just like mafia 2 and plus it is better to focus on the offline part because GTA Vs story was poor and you couldnt really play the offline part for more than a month andthe online requires a perfect internet

Hardware will probs be able to allow such a game in 20 years but it wouldnt be made because that would require tens of thousands of people just for scouting the world cities with over say 2million people. China has at least 20 such cities.

I'd like a GTA with several locations, like GTA SA, but not in the same map.
You'll have to travel to the next city and a variety of enviroments, snow, desert even tropical weather more detailed. In GTA V all of them feels unexploited

As long as the story mode is long enough and the game performance isn't crippled by poor port optimization and we don't have to much DRM Denuvo crap going on I'm willing to spend my money on this game. I hope the scope is on single player.

You're kidding, right? It'll be announced in 2017 at the very earliest, with a release 2019. More likely to be announced in 2018 with a 2020 release. This year at E3 I think we're getting RDR 2 or Agent, hell, maybe Bully 2, or GTA V DLC.
