A lot of rumors about GTA 6 have surfaced on the internet. People believe that GTA 6 might feature a female protagonist as well. Reports suggest that this female character will be voiced by Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, her lifetime partner, will be voicing a new male character. Further rumors suggest that GTA 6 location will change.
Till now, the location for Grand Theft Auto has remained in a fictitious region of United States but in GTA 6, the location could be changed to London. In 2013, during an interview with The Guardian, Dan Houser, a developer in Rockstar Games, teased that there is a possibility of GTA 6 occurring outside the United States. Houser said that they would love to develop a game set in the UK, but they have no idea whether it will be a GTA title.
Meanwhile, Neurogadget revealed that GTA 6 would be releasing sometime between 2018 and 2020. There is a pattern suggesting that Rockstar has been maintaining a five-year waiting period in-between sequels.
The last game was released in 2013; therefore, we can expect GTA 6 to be released in 2018. However, there was a seven-year gap between the release of GTA IV and GTA III. There is a possibility that Rockstar might start following this trend.
Further rumors have suggested that GTA 6 could be set in a Seattle map, featuring clashes related to smuggling problems. Therefore, the upcoming game could stay in the US without moving anywhere foreign.
The map will be twice the size of Los Santos and Blaine County. According to GTA 5 Cheats, Seattle is a potential candidate for a GTA map but on the other hand, Emerald City lacks the crime rate and violence required in a Grand Theft Auto title.
The website pointed out that considering the geographical and economic features of Seattle, the storyline could be tweaked to a more GTA-style setting. The upcoming game could bring mayhem to many Seattle businesses like Biotech, Shipping, Logging, Boeing, and Amazon. Although smuggling clashes sound dull on paper, it could give rise to a strong audio-visual potential in the upcoming game.
Although E3 2016 did not feature any GTA 6 news, Parent Herald suggests that we should look forward to a 2020 release. Fans are eagerly waiting to experience Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes as voice actors in this game.
Meanwhile, renowned YouTuber MrBossFTW explained the main reasons why almost 100% of all GTA 6 rumors surfacing online are fake. According to him, only 1% info regarding GTA 6 has been officially confirmed by reliable sources while all other fan-made speculations and rumors regarding new game worlds and concept maps are untrue.
Rockstar has confirmed that it will continue developing games in the GTA franchise after the massive success enjoyed by GTA 5. Strauss Zelnik, the Take-Two CEO, further confirmed through a public statement that GTA would become a permanent franchise.
In the past few months, we have seen a lot of content ideas and concept videos which include GTA 6 characters, gameplay, maps and also a rumored release window. According to MrBossFTW, speculations suggesting a release date between 2018 and 2020 are simply crazy. There are loads of rumors which talk about leaked gameplay and production work, including the game setting.
