The GTA 6 basic details
Soon after the release of the GTA 5, lovers of the GTA series immediately started to question the release of a subsequent product-the GTA 6. GTA 5 earned a whooping US$800 million and $US 1 billion on its day of release day and the first three days of release respectively thus becoming the fastest selling among video games in history. The sales are an indication of how much people love the game. The much anticipated release of the GTA 6 can also be attributed to the love of its predecessor.
There is no other game that has had such a huge anticipation and expectation as that given to the GTA 6. It’s just less than a year since the release of the GTA 5 but enthusiasts have already started asking when the “6” amongst the series would be released. The fans are also sharing their feature wish-list. Ever since the launch of GTA 5, GTA 6 has always been in the news, with all the rumors also taking their share within this product. The top amongst the wish list is a single beautiful hot woman as the main character with a number of other male characters.
GTA 6 release date:
As mentioned above, the successful release and incorporation of the GTA 5 is accumulating the fans to anticipate the release of the next-generation console that would come with improved game play together with graphic elements.
Although no official announcement of a date of release has been made, a hint has been given by Rockstar with the president of Rockstar North Leslie Benzies saying at a press conference that they have forty five year worth of ideas to be done. This implies that it may not be very soon by following the trend of the previous releases; maybe 2018 will be the year.
- Grand Theft Auto released in 1997
- Grand Theft Auto II released in 1999
- Grand Theft Auto III released in 2001
- Grand Theft Auto IV released in 2008
- Grand Theft Auto V released in 2013
- Grand Theft Auto VI release date may be around 2018 to 2020 though this is not an official announcement by Rockstar
Before the predicted release time of GTA 6, we obviously expect that a number of other GTA games such a newly registered “GTA City Stories” will be released.
Grand Theft Auto 6 Platform
The most likelihood platform will be the newest console Xbox One and PS4 and just like in most games, the PC platform will also be designed and released either immediately or a short while after the release of the Xbox and PS4 versions.
The Play Station 4 or rather PS4 is the latest console within the gaming zone. Recently, Rockstar did some updates on the GTA V for the PS4 platform. Because of the wide scope of utilization that Rockstar can exploit for game improvement, the PS4 platform becomes the most formidable option that is anticipated to support the game.
This is yet another latest Microsoft console that received GTA 5 updates. The product is also rich of yet to be used resources which Rockstar would probably want to explore in their quest to improve game quality together with performance.
A predecessor of the Play Station 4, the PS3 seems to be technically limited since it’s not as capable to support some of the latest graphic games the way its successor and Xbox One does. In addition, due to the fact that this program officially becomes outdated in 2017 with Sony stopping to support it in 2016, the chances of Sony launching the GTA 6 on the PS3 platform are almost zero.
The same scenario about the Play Stations applies to the Xbox software. The Xbox 360 is technically limited since it is incapable of supporting the latest highly defined graphics games thus making it not suitable for the latest games if they are to get global support. In addition, as the Xbox One is hitting the market, there is a most likelihood that the Xbox 360 may end up getting obsolete.
The possibility of other upgraded high tech consoles being made available in the market cannot also be ruled out. In case an Xbox Two and PS5 become available before the release of GTA 6, expect Rockstar to consider these consoles.
The Wish list Features and Rumors about the GTA 6
The wish list features grow day by day and as at now, below is what the GTA lovers would wish to have on the GTA 6 when it is released:
The role played by women in the GTA 5 has been highly criticized by a good number of people. However, since there is a high anticipation of the highest level of excitement with the GTA 6, there is a high probability the Rockstar will listen to what people are suggesting hence creating a female protagonist in the GTA 6. This can really be a great innovative idea since GTA franchise ranks as the most popular worldwide.
Bring the 70’s Back
The retro 1970’s look has been the most suggested appearance that most fans would really want to see. Motoringcruch first reported this and soon after, most of the other sites where users can share their personal view were trending with the same. Forums have not been left behind with most of such forums making it clear that fans have highly embraced the idea of the 1970’s culture since this is the time that is known for corrupt government businesses as well as mafia owned businesses. It is therefore the best period that suits mafias.
There is a great expectation that the next consoles would have a storyline that features changing from the much explored areas and then moving on to one New City. Exploration of this new city then becomes very adventurous in deed.
The addition of new professions like the US president, a chief of aliens or a political party leader will make the game have a thrilling experience to the fans. In addition to the new city that the GTA fans have really suggested for, they also want other places and experiences that would lead to a more thrilling and adventurous experience.
Customization of the Main Protagonists
Before starting to play the game, most of the fans have suggested the possibility of customizing the main character. Indeed, it would be a great feature if the gamers will be able to customize the cloths, looks as well as the appearance among others.
More money making missions would end up making GTA 6 a little more or rather exploration game. Bank robbing missions, having a job such as joining the police or the army are some of those missions which may improve the game giving the gamers a real feel. This would boost the gamers’ temperament of indulging in the game more.
Addition of More Realism
There are many features in the existing games which are much loved by a great deal of fans. However, there is a wide scope of adventure and fan that will be explored in the coming generation of GTA in the GTA 6 game. The engine of GTA is capable of sporting destructible sceneries with the innovative idea being to have a battlefield thought where some wall can be crumbled down or a building exploded by the use of an airplane. After this, the game records that the building is down and workers can be observed doing the reconstruction once again. Though this idea seems simply when said, when put on practice, it is capable of adding some more realism to the adventurous game.
The ability to buy a new house, a provision of the GTA 5 is a great idea. However, it can be boring to stick with just a single house. It would therefore be a very great idea to for GTA to make a provision with the ability of buying a real bungalow rather than just an apartment. A feature that allows for the editing of the house details will be fabulous.
There are a number of vehicles provided for in the GTA 5, vehicles that have been loved by many fans a great deal. However, they still are short of the real feel that came in GTA. The addition of some of the 1960’s and 70’s trucks such as the Hot Rods, the Shelby GT500 (1967) the Chevy Pickup, Chevy SS Camaros or the Ford Pickup Truck all of the 1950’s can really be thrilling.
More Stylish Clothes
The clothing or rather attire of the GTA 6 characters needs to be a little bit unique and different from the present GTA 5 version. It is a great idea to make it possible for the gamers to buy different clothes of choice for each character. This will help to create a real life feel since there will be variance and realism in the game. Rarely will you get every character having the same character unless otherwise.
Modification of vehicles
Vehicles will probably have more features when the GTA 5 and 6 games are compared. There should be a possibility of vehicle modification which include the addition of neon lights as well as speakers among other kits and advancements.
The gamers will absolutely love to have the ability of customizing their guns and vehicles according to their tastes and preferences. The old health system has also been voted by many fans who say they need it back.
The Location of GTA 6
There are rumors going around with the latest suggesting that the GTA 6 action may take place in Houston, Texas or Vice City. Some speculate that the action would take place in New York City or Miami with others still feeling that Rockstar may end up including the entire USA map in the GTA 6. All in all, the location will absolutely be within the United States of America.
The characters of the GTA 6
There are many suggestions about the characters that should appear in the GTA 6. However, the one clear character that almost everyone is voting for thus not confusing Rockstar is a female main protagonist. Though Rockstar’s head writer Brian Houster says they didn’t originally think of a female character for GTA 6, he goes ahead to say that this doesn’t mean that the cant and wont incorporate this in the game. It is therefore most probable that this is what will happen.
It is also highly rumored that John Marston and Ryan Gosling may end up being some of the surprise inclusion in the character list when GTA 6 will be released.
In spite of all this, it seems as if Grand Theft Auto VI is already under development and there is no doubt that some more leaks, rumors and speculations will continue coming up and emerging within the coming weeks, months and years till the game is ultimately released. All that we are hoping for is that the game will be more thrilling than the GTA 5. With the much anticipation, the sales will probably be much more than those of the GTA 5.
