GTA 6’ Release Date And Update: Massive Hiring Hints at Development of Sixth Entry for the Franchise

Although “GTA 5” is one of the most successful and memorable game titles in history, it’s now over five years old. As such, fans of the franchise have been incessantly asking when Rockstar is going to create “GTA 6.”

Right now, the studio hasn’t said anything about the next entry although the web is rife with rumors about it. But there are also hints that can be followed through the actions of Rockstar itself. Just recently, the studio started looking for more talented developers to join their team. While this isn’t confirmation that they are indeed making “GTA 6,” there are slight indications that this may be the case, Comicbook reported.

Among them is the sheer number of manpower that the studio needs. From technical artists and technical face developers to senior positions in the company, this could spell that Rockstar is creating a title that might be compatible with next-generation consoles. And although there’s a possibility of a new IP being made, there’s also the chance that all this activity stems from “GTA 6” development.

This is especially true since one of the job listings of the company outlines the need for experts that can create “next-generation worlds for some exciting upcoming projects.” With “GTA 6” touted to have a massive map, there’s certainly merit to this speculation.

At the moment, there are a lot of locations that are being touted as the place where the sixth installment will be set. London, Vice City, and the entire United States are those that have been put forward by rumors. As for when fans can expect “GTA 6,” it’s being speculated to come out between 2020 and 2022. Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser previously said that among the factors that are making them hesitate to develop the next entry is the current political climate.

“It’s really unclear what we would even do with [GTA 6], let alone how upset people would get with whatever we did. Both intense liberal progression and intense conservatism are both very militant, and very angry,” Houser explained. “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. Some of the stuff you see is straightforwardly beyond satire. It would be out of date within two minutes, everything is changing so fast.”
