Rockstar Games finally confirms that Gta 6 is in the works; Here’s what we know so far

After years of speculation, rumors and complaints from gamers and fans, Rockstar Games has finally confirmed that the next entry in its hit Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series – the sequel to GTA V – is in ” active development”.

GTA V is the most successful media work in history, with 140 million units sold since its launch in August 2013. multiplayer experience continues.

“We are delighted to confirm that active development of the next entry in the series (Grand Theft Auto) is underway,” Rockstar Games said in a tweet on Friday.

GTA V, in classic Rockstar fashion, is a thrilling one-minute open-world action adventure in which the player can play as three distinct characters. The game takes place in Los Santos, a fictionalized version of Los Angeles, located in the fictional state of San Andreas. In the 24 hours since its launch, Grand Theft Auto V has sold 11.21 million copies, generating $815.7 million in revenue, a Guinness World Record.

This March 15, GTA 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online will be remastered and released on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S, its third generation of consoles.

The popularity of GTA 5 and the perennial cash cow that is GTA: Online may have extended the game’s longevity more than it should have. On current-gen consoles, the game is starting to show its age, and the remastered trailer didn’t do much to improve the look of the game, even though Rockstar promised “improved game graphics and more. again”.

The last game released by the studio – owned by publisher Take Two Interactive – was Red Dead Redemption 2, the absolutely phenomenal sequel to 2010’s Red Dead Redemption, which was a massive hit at the time. As of November 2021, Rockstar has sold 39 million copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 worldwide across digital and physical channels on consoles and PC. The sequel accounted for 63% of the Red Dead franchise’s total revenue, while the original Red Dead Redemption, which sold 23 million copies, accounted for 37%. Set in a fictional location in 1899, Red Dead Redemption 2 centers on the exploits of outlaw Arthur Morgan.

But the one thing fans asked for – even lagging behind – from Rockstar was Grand Theft Auto 6, and now we know for sure it’s coming. We don’t know when, but we know it’s happening.

At this point, it’s traditional for Rockstar to tweet a teaser first, then release a trailer a few months later before releasing the actual game two or three years later, just like it did for GTA V and, more recently, RDR2.

Grand Theft Auto: The Story

Grand Theft Auto began life as a top-down single-player experience, and that format remained unchanged over the course of a sequel, GTA II, and a spin-off, GTA: London. Then GTA III ushered in the high definition era of the series, and was quickly followed by GTA: Vice City (set in a fictional Miami) and GTA: San Andreas. The latter was, at the time, the most ambitious game of its time, set in not one or two, but three distinct cities: Los Santos, Las Venturas (a fictional Las Vegas), and San Fierro (a San fictitious Francisco). ). Then came GTA: IV, the darkest game in the series, set in Liberty City (New York).

While details are scarce at this time, some rumors say GTA VI (or whatever it’s called) will return to Liberty City, while others claim it will be set in Vice City. Either way, one thing is for sure, the game will fly off the shelves on launch day.

Rockstar’s recent record has been spotty – it released a poorly received (and bug-riddled) remastered version of the Grand Theft Auto trilogy, including all three HD-era games, and is constantly criticized for focusing more on GTA. : Online than on his beloved solo entries.

Another popular Rockstar-owned series is one that focuses on a gritty, dark story about revenge machine-turned-cop Max Payne. The first game, Max Payne, was released in 2001 and has since become a cult classic. The second game, Max Payne II, was well received, albeit less so than its predecessor. The third game, Max Payne III, released in 2012, saw the damaged and cynical anti-hero single-handedly take on Brazilian drug cartels. Max Payne III, sold 440,000 units in its US launch month.
