‘GTA 6’ Release Date, Features: Rockstar Games Still Unsure About What to Do Due to Political Climate

Rockstar Games co-founder Dan Houser recently implied that they still have a lot of things to do for the development of “Grand Theft Auto 6.” Whatever contents and storyline they will pursue for the much-awaited sequel are also still “unclear.”

Houser was recently interviewed by GQ, where he briefly discussed where Rockstar Games is currently in terms of the “GTA 6” development. Houser’s statement appears to confirm that they have already started the work for the video game but the contents that will make it in the full and final version are still not set in stone.

“It’s really unclear what we would even do with it, let alone how upset people would get with whatever we did,” Houser said. The Rockstar Games boss said the current political climate in the United States contributes to the tricky situation they are in with regards to the making of “GTA 6.”

"Both intense liberal progression and intense conservatism are both very militant, and very angry. It is scary but it’s also strange, and yet both of them seem occasionally to veer towards the absurd. It’s hard to satirize for those reasons,” Houser further explained about the development of “GTA 6.” “Some of the stuff you see is straightforwardly beyond satire. It would be out of date within two minutes, everything is changing so fast."

“GTA” is undoubtedly one of the most popular video game franchises at the moment. But it also had its share of controversies, especially with its depiction of its non-playable female characters, which was labeled misogynistic and sexist by various reports.

If there is one thing Houser is certain with, it is that they are “thankful” they are not launching “GTA 6” anytime soon, Houser confirmed. The developers are reportedly quite relieved that “GTA 6” is not coming out at a time when Donald Trump is still in the White House.

This particular statement is also interesting. Trump’s current term ends in 2020 if he does not get to be re-elected and it can be recalled that analyst Michael Pachter previously speculated “GTA 6” could be released sometime between 2021 and 2022.
