Grand Theft Auto series has been the most popular series of action-adventure games for a couple of years. Previously launched Grand Theft Auto 5 has been around since September 2013, but it is still insanely popular. Earning USD 800 million in its first day and USD 1 billion in three days, GTA 5 was the fastest selling video game in the history. After GTA 5, the fans are eagerly waiting for the news of GTA 6 release date.
The upcoming GTA 6 is expected to be another hit with some new adventures and excitement. The GTA manufacturers are going to release Red Dead Redemption 2 later this year, so the chances of Grand Theft Auto 6 release this year are very lean. According to recent reports, GTA 6 has entered pre-production and it is scheduled to be release somewhere in 2018. Read on to know about GTA 6 release date, latest news, features, and trailer.
GTA 6 Release Date
The developers have not revealed any detail about GTA 6 release date. With the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 in 2017, it can be asserted that GTA 6 won’t release for at least one more year, or maybe longer. Some reports speculate that the next series of GTA will probably be launched in October 2018.
GTA 6 News
The manufacturers have not revealed much about GTA 6. In an interview with Develop, the Rockstar President Leslie Benzies revealed that GTA 6 is in very early stages of development.
“We don’t know what Grand Theft Auto 6 will be, but we have got some ideas”, said Benzies. “It comes from the idea first. Where it is going to be set is the first question. Then that defines the missions; you’re doing different things in LA than in New York or Miami. The map and story get worked up together, and the story is a basic flow of how it works out so you can layer the mission in,” the President continued saying.
“We’ve got about 45 years’ worth of ideas we want to do. GTA Online is the focus right now. There ain’t no rest between finishing 5 and then Online. Plus we have some things – stuff, DLC, I don’t know how to describe it exactly – that we’d like to do, and we’ll pick the right ones.”
There are rumors that GTA 6 map will be of a sheer size and the developers can revamp the entire of the United States rather than just one city. Also, the GTA 6 would feature multiple US locations with the distance between each location reduced noticeably.
GTA 6 Story
We are still far away from what GTA 6 storyline will be and what characters or features will be there. We will update you if we sniff out any information about the GTA 6 storyline or gameplay features. Till then check out the list of Grand Theft Auto 6 features we would love to see in the game.
GTA 6 Features
Here are the things the GTA lovers would like to see in GTA 6 when it is eventually released.
A Female Lead
Whether it is the trip Franklin, Michael and Trevor from GTA 5, Niko from GTA 4 or Carl Johnson from GTA San Andreas, every Grand Theft Auto game has a male protagonist. We don’t have even a single strong female supporting character since Catalina in GTA 3. So, it is the time when Rockstar should introduce a strong female lead character even as part of a multi-protagonist system like GTA 5.
Rockstar has been criticized in past for its negative attitude towards the female characters, thanks to the strip clubs and prostitutes in its games. Introducing a female protagonist can be the best way to prove the critics wrong.
New Locations and Cities
The GTA series have explored three main areas including San Andreas, Liberty City and Vice City. We are expecting to explore new locations or cities in GTA 6. It would definitely be a great adventure and thrill to explore the new city.
New Thrilling Missions
GTA 6 can be more thrilling if new money making missions are added. Like Bank robbery missions, or having a job like joining army or cops. Such missions will help the players boost their temperament to get indulge in the game.
Changing Original Vehicle
Adding fuel gauge to GTA 6 can be a bit more adventurous as the players will have to check out the fuel of their vehicle constantly as they drive around the world. Also, it would be challenging if you had to change your original vehicle as it had run out of gas.
First Person Shooter Option
GTA 5 for PC, Xbox One and PS4 initiated an optional First Person Shooter (FPS) mode. With this mode, the developers have made it possible to play through the whole game in first-person. It changes the driving sections of GTA 5 and the combat system as well. However, it is perhaps not the best way to enjoy the game from start to finish.
The FPS option should be accessible to everyone from the off. Only then you can decide how you play the game and modify your viewing angle to your game style.
Wouldn’t it be more exciting if GTA 6 gets virtual reality support? Exploring an extensive open world without any restriction in VR would be simply mind boggling. The GTA fans would love to see the company bring up this feature in upcoming GTA game.
Simultaneous PC and Console Release
The GTA fans would love a simultaneous console and PC release for GTA 6. WE are still waiting for the PC release of GTA 5. Even after a long time from the original release, Rockstar has not released the GTA 5 PC edition. We are not so hopeful, but it would be good if the players get PC and console release altogether.
GTA 6 Trailer
Rockstar has not released the official GTA 6 trailer yet. Here is a fan-made GTA 6 trailer video which shows outclass vehicles and battle.
