Every installment of Rockstar Games’ “Grand Theft Auto” became a hit to gamers across different platforms, so it seems pretty odd that after the release of “GTA V” about three years ago, the game developer has been quite slow in coming up with a new installment. Does it mean Rockstar is ending “GTA” or will fans of the video game get another one in due time? If the latter is true, the question is when will it arrive? There’s been too much waiting already.
“GTA VI” could very well be the biggest announcement yet to be announced, but with Rockstar declining to confirm or even give any kind of information about it, plus the fact that it wasn’t even mentioned in last month’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), it could very mean that there is hesitance in developing a new game. But it could also mean that Rockstar may be preoccupied with another game that it cannot devote time for “GTA.”
The most talked about possibility of all is the drastic change in the video game’s setting. Neurogadget previously reported that Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser expressed his desire for the new “GTA” game to take place outside the bounds of American culture. Simply put, the only way to deviate from a showcase of American culture is to put the game in a different setting. And with this revelation came all sorts of rumors, including that of the game taking place in Japan, while most recently, fans discussed that the most probable setting is London.
A more ambitious thought, meanwhile, claims that the reason why Rockstar has not released a new “GTA” game is because it is busy figuring out a way to integrate a world map. However, that could take years to develop and it makes no sense at this point to further delay any announcement for a game that is way past its due.
