If there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that the “GTA 6” will be a next-gen title. With Sony and Microsoft entering the next phase of their console war in 2020, it’s understandable that analysts are touting that the sixth installment is still a few years away.

Realistically, “GTA 6” could come out around 2021 or 2022 at the earliest. With Rockstar providing an eight-year gap between “Red Dead Redemption” and “Red Dead Redemption 2,” this assumption certainly has precedence, GamingBolt reported.

In September, “GTA 5” will be turning six years old. If the gaming studio handles “GTA 6” similar to what they’ve done with the “Red Dead Redemption” franchise, then a 2021 release date would be the best bet. That is, of course, barring any unforeseen delays.

The bad news is that Rockstar isn’t sharing any information how far along they are with “GTA 6.” Thus, most of the news surrounding the title is coming from rumors and speculations.

Among them is the supposed location of “GTA 6” and how the game will be set on multiple areas namely: Vice City, Liberty City, and Los Santos. What’s more, the story will apparently be centered on how the players will build their drug empire throughout the course of the plot. The rumor first started when a user leaked the information on Pastebin, detailing about Rockstar’s plans and how they’re handling the story’s progression.

The post has since been deleted from the site, prompting speculations from gamers that the “GTA 6” leak might be real after all. The leak also mentioned that the game will run on next-gen consoles alone as the current systems aren’t enough to handle it due to “memory restrictions.”

Whatever the case, Rockstar isn’t expected to break their silence regarding “GTA 6” soon. As such, it’s best to turn your attention to other upcoming games like “Cyberpunk 2077” or “The Last of Us Part 2” while awaiting word from the studio.
