Following the release of Grand Theft Auto 5, which proved to be the fastest-selling video game in history, gamers from around the world are anxiously awaiting Rockstar Games’next release – GTA 6.
GTA 6 Release Date Rumor
However, based on previous trends and habits of the industry, specially with the confirmed release of Red Dead Redemption 2 this year, this game is expected to be released only in 2020. Yeah, we know, it’s too long a wait and that’s why some people are still clinging on to another ray of hope that the game might be released in August 2018, if the usual 5 year strategy is not followed.
No concrete evidence is however yet to be released about the game and Rockstar’s President Benzies said that the main focus is on GTA Online ( the multiplayer version of GTA 5) at the moment, although they have game plots and stories atleast semi fabricated for the next 45 years.
GTA VI Map Rumors
The main buzz circulating around the game is the hope of having a map that covers the entire continental US, with practical real time chances to explore it all. The more ambitious version of that rumor states that users will even get a chance to navigate through a world map! However, no matter how exciting it sounds, this concept is not practically feasible if we take into account the large memory space and RAM usage required.
VR in GTA 6
There is a traveling rumor that GTA6 will be available in VR (Virtual Reality), on yet to be released XBOX 2 and PS5 and atleast PC DVD, XBOX One and PS4 if not PS3 and XBOX 360.
The PC requirements haven’t changed much since GTA5, seeing as how the latter already consumed most of our resources with its heavy demands. This version of the game will require at least 8GB RAM, 120GB DISK SPACE and an OS of Windows 7 and above.
The possible protagonists will include GTA5’s stars:
- Michael De Santa
- Franklin Clinton
- Trevor Philips
Coming as a shock to many, GTA 6 is expected to launch with two unexpected turn of events. The first one is hoped to be the availability of a female protagonist which might finally even out the testosterone-dominated playing field and the second one being the presence of an option to play the game as a good COP.
I know, but let us stay on the right side of the law for a change too, after all where better can you experience the rush of catching someone red-handed and actually not flinching at the sound of sirens for once ?
The craze behind Grand Theft Auto is also widely due to the automobiles present for use – the thrill provided by the game would simply be absent without these vehicles which can even be proudly dubbed as death mobiles. So the happy news for all speed lovers is that there are a good few number of updates in this department – the doubling of the number of usable bikes and cars, the creation of existence of location based cars, in type Planes and helicopters , extra custom shops and the option of even buying and selling of cars!
The fans are obviously going crazy and have put together quite a wish list that they hope will reach the honored ears of the gaming gods – Rockstar Games. The list includes a wider variety of side jobs, a possibility of a female protagonist, access to more real life automobiles, more shops, clothing and accessory options, bigger map with wider desert regions, new locations ( the more popular options being Washington DC and Carcer City ) and a return of eccentric weapons like chainsaws and blades, seeing as how no one can deny those sharp beauties after all.
The game is expected to be launched on Amazon and the pre-order links for the Playstation, XBOX and PC versions are expected to be opened at least six months prior to the release. The game can also be downloaded hassle free, at home after purchasing the key online.
More updates are suspected to be leaked/released before the official launch of the game and the gamers are encouraged to do what they do best and stay glued to the screens, keeping the spirit and fire and buzz alive till the launch.
