In GDC 2021, Rockstar presented a slide on their expectations in game development specific to Red Dead Redemption II. This also gave us a tease on what we can expect from GTA VI.

They talk about multiple aspects, which we shall explain below.

Minutes from GDC 2021

  • Runtime compositional approaches

This one is huge on the optimization aspect. Taking the example of Red Dead Redemption II that requires a lot of power to run, Rockstar is looking forward to optimizing the environments for a smoother gameplay experience. This is something we can expect in GTA VI as well.

  • Large-scale data-driven systems lower the barrier
    for entry

Very similar to the first aspect, this would require optimization of the game rather than the release platform. Rockstar might be preparing for releasing GTA VI in the next edition of consoles after PS5 and Xbox Series. This is likely true because there has been no update on the game’s release.

  • An even wider variety of movement

In RDR II, around 3000 animations for horses made them feel extremely realistic within the gameplay. Something similar or even better can be expected from GTA VI.

  • Improve responsiveness and quality of humans and
    animals with lower production costs

RDR II had incredible responsiveness and detail in in-game animals and NPCs, which seemed very realistic. It felt every action of yours in the game had an indefinite reaction that seemed astonishing. It was one of the best Open World interactive games of all time. Is Rockstar teasing something even better for GTA VI?

  • Machine learning approaches and Better parity between AI and player-controlled
    characters

We can expect better parity between the AI and the character to give us an improved experience of gameplay in GTA VI. Rockstar might definitely want to improve on that end and take notes from RDR II for this upcoming installment.
