Grand Theft Auto VI is the sixth main installment of the bestselling series of open-world action games, managed by Rockstar Games studio. In October 2019, the Ruffian Games team announced that it had entered into a partnership with the company, and the game in question may be one of its results.
We first heard about GTA 6 in March 2016, when a source from the TechRadar website reported that work on the game had already begun. Although since then more unofficial information about this project has regularly came to light, so far none of them have been confirmed by the developers.
Plot - leaks
According to unofficial reports, the main source of inspiration for the developers of Grand Theft Auto 6 is the popular series Narcos. The action of the game is to be set in the 70s and 80s of the last century and during the game we will visit the cult city of Vice City and a new metropolis modeled on Rio de Janeiro. Moreover, selected missions will take us to Liberty City, which we know from Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto IV. The main theme is drug dealing, and during the game we will supposedly play as the protagonist, who will gradually rise up the ranks of criminal career from a simple smuggler, wanting to become a real "drug lord".
Other rumors suggest that the authors will move us instead to South America (Colombia and Jamaica to be precise), and some others say that for the first time in the history of the series there will be a woman among the playable characters.
Grand Theft Auto VI will give us a vast open world, where we'll be able to move around on foot or behind the wheel of various vehicles and machines (we can expect cars, motorcycles, airplanes, helicopters or even boats, among others). Although nothing will prevent us from using the latter in silence, the fun will be diversified by various radio stations.
The core of the game will be missions pushing the plot forward, which will be accompanied by a whole bunch of various side activities. As is standard for the series, you'll want to keep your finger on the pulse so as not to attract the attention of law enforcement (unless our intention is completely different), because if we mess with them, they won't stop at anything just to get us. We'll defend ourselves from our enemies (regardless of whether we're talking about the police or other criminals) using an extensive arsenal, which includes all sorts of firearms, explosives and various gadgets.
According to unofficial reports, the game will follow the bestselling Red Dead Redemption 2 in terms of realism, with the protagonist being able to carry a limited number of weapons and gadgets, and the world will change over time, with the passing of time making older and rarer cars more expensive, for example. The game will also feature more realistic and violent weather phenomena, such as hurricanes, floods or tornadoes. In addition to aesthetics, these will supposedly have a large impact on gameplay, so that if you don't watch out for each other during a storm, for example, the protagonist will eventually be struck by lightning.
Due to a gigantic success achieved by Grand Theft Auto Online, we can expect that apart from single player story campaign in GTA6 we will find expanded multiplayer mode, which will be developed many years after the premiere of this game.
Taking into account previous achievements of the developers, it seems certain that Grand Theft Auto 6 will delight players with the graphics of the highest quality. The same is true about the soundtrack, which will consist primarily of licensed songs played by individual radio stations.
