GTA 6: What revolution for Rockstar’s cult game after Grand Theft Auto 5?

Game News GTA 6: What revolution for Rockstar’s cult game after Grand Theft Auto 5?

As rumors continue to pile up, Grand Theft Auto’s sixth installment is slowly taking shape – at least in the minds of fans. To date, no image or official information has come to confirm the theories about the next Rockstar project. Anyway, we already have a good idea of ​​what the title might look like. Here then, without waiting – our ideal GTA 6.

We hear about it almost every day, Grand Theft Auto 6 remains a great and enormous mystery for the time being. All we know from a reliable source is that: the title is in development, which is not so bad. Last February, the Rockstar studio (GTA, Red Dead Redemption) confirmed so the obvious: “Development of the next Grand Theft Auto game is in full swing”† A sentence released in all easing, at the foot of an article seemingly banal, on the company’s official site. It is known, Rockstar does what it wants. As for the announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2 on Twitter, in 2016: first a logo on a red background, silhouettes, then the formalization, two days later a trailer.

But unlike Arthur Morgan’s adventures, GTA 6 doesn’t seem to want to draw its first images in line. And that probably won’t happen right away. Rockstar is deaf and several analysts estimation the release of the new Grand Theft Auto for 2024 / 2025, even if the latter option seems unlikely. Conversely, 2023 would be too short a deadline. Above all, we should not forget that the company already has a lot of work to do. The online counterparts of GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 will continue to provide regular content, while the PS5/Xbox Series versions of the latest Grand Theft Auto have just arrived, with the added bonus of a new subscription plan called “GTA+”.

Card and online game

So pending more concrete elements, how can Rockstar revolutionize or at least improve on a GTA 5 on top of its form and glory? We’re still talking about the second best-selling game in history – 160 million units – and which has gone through not one, not two, but three console generations. An enormous longevity that Rockstar owes in large part to Grand Theft Auto Online, the online dimension of the fifth installment. Thanks to a follow-up worthy of a true service game (many new features, including more and more scripted heists), the company has made sure very long-term revenue and advertising† It’s clear that this aspect will be central to GTA 6, with some improvements for sure: less farm-based progression, servers that can accommodate more players, a role-playing dimension why not integrated directly into everything. And there are other ways.

That is what several insiders claim, including the well-known Jason Schreier Grand Theft Auto 6 is getting a scalable map, able to metamorphose – even grow – over the weeks and months. A piece of information that could mean two things: first, from the “online” point of view, with a common game space that would change according to the events based on a system of seasons (in a Fortnitecall of duty war zone† Or from a solo perspective, with a map that can represent the passage of time, such as completing a bridge to another area, or the player’s actions, following up on a building destroyed hours before. A scalable map would also make it possible to avoid crunch phases, ie extra working hours, starting with a modest base to gradually expand. RDR2 had been pin about the subject.

I haven’t seen the whole project (GTA 6 – editor’s note) but development is still in its infancy and there is an evolving/expanding map – Jason Schreier, July 4, 2021, on Twitter

Better interactivity

Speaking of destructible elements, Grand Theft Auto has never been an example in this area, limiting this aspect to damage done by vehicles. There is a good chance that GTA 6 is making progress in this area. A job offer published by Rockstar last October calls on “very large-scale destruction events such as skyscrapers crashing into the ground”† Intriguing, right? In any case, it is with things like this that society once again pushes the boundaries of the possible, as it so often likes to do. “With every project we launch, we have a desire to always surpass ourselves and produce something that has never been done before” says the studio on its official website.

Better destruction of the environment would bring new gameplay possibilities, as well as more spectacular main missions (not to mention the impact on multiplayer). But that’s not the only thing that GTA 6 6 could do to outperform its big brother: return to a multi-city map for example, what hasn’t happened since then? Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, in 2004. The rumors conjure up an unpublished version of Vice City, Chicago, places like Cuba or Florida. What gives unprecedented scale to the rise of the hero, and why not increase the membership of a gang. Finally, we’re not saying no to real estate management and stock market investment efforts.

More mature storyline

All in all, GTA 6 is undoubtedly on the cusp of redefining the field of possibilities in terms of open-world realism, thus combining the qualities of Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. And who says realism, perhaps says a scenario more rooted in realitylike the excellent GTA 4, where we follow the adventures of Niko Bellic, a war veteran of Serbian descent who will do anything to fulfill his American dream. The fifth part, in turn, is more uninhibited and follows the personal and marital adventures of Michael, Franklin and Trevor. Result: quests certainly varied and very entertaining, but in the end maybe a little too much.

In any case, always according to the rumorsGrand Theft Auto 6 bets on multiple playable heroes again, clearly a brother and sister. A first for the series, which has never before summoned a female lead to star. It would be a good idea to introduce new themes and bet on the emotional feathers of a close-knit duo. In addition, the choice of different playable characters undoubtedly embodied one of the great strengths of GTA 5. It remains only to cross your fingers.
