‘GTA 6’ Release Date, Features: Rockstar Games’ Latest Official Comment Hints Sequel Won’t Launch Anytime Soon
Fans will need more patience with regards to waiting for the release date of “Grand Theft Auto 6.” The latest official comment from Rockstar Games suggests that it will take several more years before “GTA 6” arrives.
The predecessors of “GTA 6” have been placed under scrutiny for various reasons. And with the current political climate especially in the United States, Rockstar Games co-founder Dan Houser told the British GQ that they are “thankful” “GTA 6” is not coming out anytime soon.
Houser did not specifically mention the term of United States President Donald Trump as an unfavorable time to release “GTA 6.” But the report interpreted it that way and if so, there is a big possibility that the game will not be out by 2020 or later.
It is important to note that an earlier forecast was made by gaming industry analyst Michael Pachter supporting this possibility. Pachter estimated that “GTA 6” could even be released as late as 2021 considering Rockstar Games’ other projects and track record in game development and distribution.
Meanwhile, Houser further explained that the ongoing “intense liberal progression and intense conservatism” make it “hard to satirise.” The Rockstar Games exec also hinted they are likely still in the early stages of developing “GTA 6.” “It’s really unclear what we would even do with it, let alone how upset people would get with whatever we did,” Houser said.
On the other hand, “Red Dead Redemption 2” — one of Rockstar Games’ biggest projects — is now out after almost a decade since the first game of the series was launched. This could mean that the video game company’s no. 1 priority now is the development of “GTA 6.”
There are many speculations now about the possible “GTA 6” gameplay features. Some of the most interesting and talked about possibilities include the first-ever female main protagonist as well as getting new maps based on locations across North and South America.
