GTA 5 released in 2013, and is still carrying Rockstar Games’ massive open-world games franchise on its shoulders.

They’ve only come across disappointment so far, because Rockstar Games has mostly remained silent on the matter.

It won’t be an overstatement that GTA 5 is one of the most popular games ever. This is primarily because Rockstar focuses a lot on story expansions and multiplayer mode with regular updates. GTA Online offers activities like Heists, and millions of players love this game mode and play it regularly.

Hence, GTA 5 is still helping the developers in making a fortune. Naturally, they currently have no incentive to rush the development of GTA 6 and end up making a title like Cyberpunk 2077. Unlike CD Projekt RED, they can definitely sit back and polish every aspect of the upcoming project without incurring any losses.

Such a huge gap between two existing titles is undoubtedly unusual for the fans. Traditionally, all the new GTA games have released within 2-3 years of their predecessor’s launch.

What to expect from the next GTA title?

The gaming community is flooded with several leaks and rumors regarding GTA 6 at the moment. Initially, some leakers had suggested that the game will be based on the 1980s. In contrast, Tom Henderson believes it will represent a modern-day version of Vice City, and will release in 2025.

Like GTA 5, Rockstar Games wants GTA 6 to have a long-lasting impact on the fans. It will most probably update the vast Vice-City inspired map like Epic Games brings seasonal map changes in Fortnite.

Another important detail regarding GTA 6 is multiple playable characters. The feature first appeared in GTA 5, and might get even better with the next title.

Here’s Tom Henderson talking about GTA 6 in a recent video.

The aforementioned rumors and leaks certainly sound interesting. Regardless, fans will most probably have to wait till 2025 to witness them. Take-Two Interactive recently released its earnings statement which nowhere mentioned a new GTA game in 2021. Apparently, the publisher is waiting for a substantial increase in the sales of the Xbox Series X and the PS5.

When do you think will GTA 6 hit the stores? Let us know in the comments section below.
