Ten years. That’s how long it’s been since Grand Theft Auto V was released in stores for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. To be exact, it will make the decade during the coming month of September 2023, and all this without still having official news of Grand Theft Auto VI… officially.
Much is known about the game thanks to leaks and reports made by the specialized press. We tell you the details while we wait for Rockstar Games’ announcement.
Which City Will Be Featured in GTA VI?
According to all the leaked information, in GTA VI we would return to the city of Vice City, already known to players thanks to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Inspired in Miami (United States), we know it is this city from the details revealed to the press, as well as from the videos that were leaked on the Internet, where you could see inscriptions such as “Vice City Metro” or VCPD, which refers to Vice City Police Department. However, instead of going all the way back to the 80’s, we are now in the “present day”.
The work of the community and GTA lovers is such that even as a result of the images that appeared on social networks, they have been creating coordinates on a fictional map to recreate a real one. Yes, it is a real wonder what the user ChurchofGTA has done on Reddit. Rockstar Games must be hallucinating with the community.
Who is the Main Character?
We put “who”, but we should really say “who”. GTA VI will have two main characters: Lucia and Jason. These are the provisional names of the GTA VI characters, a pair of twin siblings who come from the underworld.
From here on, the data on these characters is blurred, that is, we only have rumors. Apparently, Jason wants to change the course of his life within the police, while Lucia aspires to lead an important drug cartel. As we still have no official information, we can only guess, although we already know that we will have the possibility to choose both of them, as it happened with Michael, Franklin and Trevor in GTA V.
As for the duration of the game, sources close to the development point out that completing the entire map will take between 300 and 400 hours. Of course, this refers to the entire game, that is, the main story will be shorter.
When will GTA VI be released?
This is the question we are all looking forward to, but the reality is that we still have no release date. The rumors highlight that it will be released in 2024, but the reality is that as long as GTA V continues to sell as well and GTA Online does not stop generating money, the release of GTA VI is in no hurry.
Rockstar Games released a statement in September confirming that the leaked videos and images of the game were totally real. They also stated that they would “share updates soon” and when “the next game is ready”.
Will GTA VI be online?
It has not been confirmed whether GTA VI will be online, but if we had to stipulate a percentage, ours would be 100% certainty. Yes, that’s right: not 99% or anything like that, but 100% confidence that GTA VI will have multiplayer.
As we said just before in the release date section, what generates the most money for Take-Two, Rockstar Games’ parent company, is GTA V online. Therefore, dispensing with this in its sixth installment does not enter into any of the existing variables.
How much will GTA VI cost?
Guessing the price of the game when we do not even have a release date is a chimera. However, we can say that the minimum price will be 59.95 euros, since below this price we can find almost no triple A video game on the market.
Here the key now is to know if the price will remain on the threshold of 79.95 euros. As is well known, with the arrival of the new generation of consoles, many companies are raising their prices, including Sony with its productions, who has already stipulated this value for all its launch games. It remains to be seen if Take-Two will also play it, although our bet is that yes, the 80 euros of rigor will be the price.
And so far all the information we know -or we predict- about GTA VI. It remains to wait for official data on the game, which hopefully will happen as soon as possible.
