‘GTA 6’ Release Date, Latest Rumors: Sixth Entry to be Revealed in Upcoming E3 2019?
Another rumor involving “GTA 6” is making its round on the web again, this time claiming that the sixth installment will be unveiled in the upcoming E3 2019. The rumor was first sparked by a Reddit user claiming that they’re working for a business tasked in creating landing pages for Take-Two – Rockstar’s parent company, Digital Overload reported.
The post has been deleted since then. So is there any sliver of truth that “GTA 6” might be revealed in the upcoming conference? Well, going by the previous actions of Rockstar, there’s zero chance that this rumor will come true.
For years, Rockstar hasn’t attended E3, and it’s unlikely they’ll be breaking away from this pattern unless something unexpected pops up. Another reason why “GTA 6” will not see the light of day soon is due to the recent released of the online version of “Red Dead Redemption 2.” Gaming studios normally stagger the release date of its respective titles so that their products won’t be competing against each other on the market.
If Rockstar decides to release “GTA 6,” it will undoubtedly pull away players of “Red Dead Redemption 2 Online,” especially since the game has suffered numerous issues following its launch. The fact of the matter is that “GTA 6” isn’t expected to drop this year or next year for that matter. Most of the rumors are touting that it will come out sometime between 2021 or 2022, a fair assumption is given that “RDR2” and its online variant may already have run out of steam by that time.
As for the setting, there have been speculations that “GTA 6” will be set in multiple locations: Vice City, Liberty City, and Los Santos. Apparently, players will be tasked to build their drug empire throughout the story, with the game employing flashbacks to provide a richer narrative for its plotline.
Of course, this too should be taken with a grain of salt since Rockstar hasn’t confirmed anything just yet. In fact, they remain mum about the title, and it’s still unclear whether or not production has already begun for “GTA 6.”
