Rockstar is officially working on the next Grand Theft Auto game, and obviously anticipation is very high. We’ve had numerous leaks before the official announcement from Rockstar, but since then all has been quiet. Now a new report claims several interesting details about the upcoming title…

According to the report, Grand Theft Auto 6 will be set in a fictional version of Miami, as well as its surrounding areas. Interestingly, this was apparently scaled back from initial designs that focused on several large territories of North and South America, as Rockstar is currently looking to improve their work culture and development cycle.

That includes turning GTA 6 into a Live Service title, so as to allow for less pressure on crunching development (something Rockstar is notorious for). This means new content like cities and missions will be added regularly. Despite that though, the game’s launch will still have more interior areas than any previous GTA game. Though it does not mention if Grand Theft Auto VI will be entirely online, like a massive multiplayer title in the vein of Grand Theft Auto Online rather than GTA 5.

Another interesting note is that it will allegedly feature a female protagonist, a first for Rockstar. The report mentions players having a Bonnie and Clyde-like relationship with another character, gender unknown, and it is also unclear whether you will be able to control the other character, much like how Grand Theft Auto 5 lets you switch between 3 main protagonists.

The report also claims that although Rockstar only officially announced development on GTAVI earlier this year, development apparently began as early as 2014. But when will it actually be released? Well, following on from previous rumors stating a 2024-2025 release date, the report also claims the title is at least 2 years away from release. But whether that includes a PC release date is not known (previous titles launched on consoles first).

The report comes from interviews with some of the developers apparently, mainly focused on the new company culture. Hopefully the new strategy will reduce crunch time for the developers, which has been a main issue with Rockstar recently. Either way, it sounds like it won’t be long before we hear or see anything official about Grand Theft Auto Six.

What do you think? Are you excited for GTA6? How do you feel about the location idea? What do you think of the Live Service model for story content? And will this actually help alleviate crunch culture? Let us know!

I do not want a PC (politically correct) GTA. I play games to laugh and have fun. As of the latest reports they are planning to cut down on 'offensive' content. Video games aren't real life and people need to get that. If certain people can't make that distinction then they need to get another hobby. How come movies get away with everything and video games can't even sneeze anymore?

Movies don't get away with much, to be honest. Especially american movies, where the pentagon always looks over the shoulder, sends reps to the filming and has to approve the final movies to make sure nothing bad is said about the murican military (that last Top Gun trailer was so cringe I can only imagine the movie itself now...).


There are forms of censorship and ideas being rewritten everywhere, usually dictated by the local governments, but self-imposed changes are not uncommon either.


I genuinely doubt GTA will be "ruined" or "woke" just because modern topics get touched or because there's a...w0m4n...in the game, derp. As long as the writing is good - anything can work. My biggest worries are actually that Lazlow left - his writing was funny - and that the game might be a pile of crap LiVe sErViCe model...

oh I forgot about the live service model but you reminded me and I am in pure agony. The reasoning is also interesting behind the live service model. We want to reduce crunch so we will ship an unfinished piece of garbage and then keep adding crap on top. How's about not launching in 2025 or whenever and launching the game when it is fully done.

At the end of the day - "it takes two".


And I don't mean the awesome awesome game by Mr Fares - I mean that for anything to happen (crime, scams, product sales, etc) - you need two parties. The gamerzzzz™ are doing it to themselves. If they can't exercise a small amount of self-control when it comes to buying unfinished entertainment - why would the companies stop producing it? If people can't help themselves but spend stupid amounts of money on "games" like Diablo Immoral - why would the companies NOT make them like that? Likewise, if Rockstar are having a time of their life swimming in billions through GTA Online - why wouldn't they go balls deep into "LiVe sErVIcE" - the suckers will eat it up!


There's a reason why retro and indie ("AA") games are booming like mad. But the unfortunate reality is that the demographic they're booming with is just...too small... If you want to make tons of money - you don't make a Hades or It Takes Two - you build a bullshít online habit maker casino masquerading as a video game.

Never been into GTA in the first place, but making the game live service is just a money grubbing move. Hope it flops so Rockstar will go back to making games with passion in mind.

Having a woman protagonist on its own is NOT political or woke, it's just a female protagonist as simple as that, but when they shove these woke politics down our throats it becomes annoying as hell.


And the funny thing is that they are doing it for the ESG score, NOT because they care...

We've had female protagonists ever since I was a kid playing games like Drakan, NOLF, Tomb Raider, Beyond good and Evil, various RPGs, etc. I wonder at which point did the sad lonely losers turn that benign thing into "politics"..? It's just so incredibly dumb, when you stop to think about it.

Exactly. It's not a political thing. We had Samus from Metroid, Diablo, Final Fantasy, tons of adventure games and RPGs with female protagonists, nobody made a big deal, because it's not political. Now they are making a huge fuss as if it's something new and they are making it political...

Go touch grass. If you cannot handle a female protag, then you need to do some meditating and re-evaluate yourself.

My missis always laughs at gamerzzz™ who can't handle women in video games. She says it's really gay to hate women like that and I 100% agree 🤣


Also it really screams "I'm single and I've not had contact with women". We've had women in video games ever since I can remember - in RPGs, MMOs and single-player games. Which stupid website and/or youtube channel conditioned you that this is somehow "woke"? Like c'mon, what's with the hate for the ladies? 🤣

This will clearly be bull**** of a game and I have zero interest in it. I bet the amount of interiors still unlocked after main story will be under 5 this time lol...looking forward to this failure.

Just dont count the PC version on launch. GTAV was like 2 years apart from console launch, so i expect the same will happen with GTA6

Could be true but could also not be, ps3 and ps4 weren't remotely close to PC gaming, PS5 is. It's a lot easier to build for current gen and PC together then it was years prior.

I just hope that it gets ported to even more generations of consoles than GTA5 did (PS3-5, x bone 360-series, pc). Those are rookie numbers, let go 4 generations of consoles...
