GTA 6: Rumors about the release period are true, according to industry insiders


Last week, new rumors about GTA 6 surfaced on the Internet, which have now been confirmed by another journalist. This is Jason Schreier, who commented on the statements of insider Tom Henderson on Twitter. Schreier also heard about relevant information about the open world game from Rockstar Games. At the same time, this would mean that fans would have to wait a while for GTA 6.

This would mean at least eleven years between GTA 5 and GTA 6 (buy now 19.99 €). The longest waiting period so far was between parts 4 and 5 with a length of five years. No surprise that Rockstar Games is now releasing Grand Theft Auto V as a next-gen version for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S for the time being. The game will be available in stores from November 11th. GTA Online will also be available as a standalone version for the first time.

What were the new GTA 6 rumors about?

In addition to the release period, Tom Henderson reported on other highlights of the successor. For example, the game will return to Vice City and feature an ever-changing map that will be customized through updates and DLC in the years to come. In addition, the story of GTA 6 is set in the present. As in Part 5, several characters are also planned again - including a protagonist for the first time.

'GTA 6' Reportedly Set In Contemporary Version Of This Heavily-Rumored Map, Fans Think Otherwise

  • The location of the rumored 'GTA 6' was recently revealed by an insider
  • It confirmed previous rumors about the game's setting
  • Some fans have other interesting ideas about the location of 'GTA 6'
  • 'Grand Theft Auto 6' or 'GTA 6' would reportedly feature seasonal updates similar to 'Fortnite' and 'Call of Duty: Warzone,' which triggers speculations that the heavily rumored sequel might not be set in Vice City, but a reliable video games insider thinks otherwise.

    A new video from industry insider Tom Henderson contains interesting details about 'GTA 6,' including its setting or location. According to the industry insider, the rumored sequel would take the series back to Vice City. Henderson claimed that unlike in 'Grand Theft Auto: Vice City,' 'GTA 6' would introduce the map in a modern setting. 

    This is because Rockstar Games, the developer behind the hit 'Grand Theft Auto' franchise, reportedly feels like they have more autonomy within the structure of the rumored title. So they could make it contemporary instead of placing the game in a particular era like the rumored 1980s. Earlier, Henderson claimed that 'GTA 6' would feature seasonal map updates with new downloadable content.

    Several fans took the seasonal update literally and assumed that it refers to the changes in the season like winter, spring, summer and fall. This theory supports a previously discovered patent, which suggests that the game could feature multiple evolving cities. Other fans believe the game would be set in New York or Liberty City in the 'GTA' world.

    The seasonal weather type is present in the city as shown in other games and the same weather condition could be used for Chicago, according to earlier rumors. Several other fans claimed that the rumored sequel could be set in London or somewhere else in Europe. It is also a possible location since London is the home of the first 'GTA' title. 

    Project Americas, a popular 'GTA 6' rumor, which predicts that the upcoming sequel would be heavily influenced by the hit Netflix series 'Narcos,' suggested that the game would be set in South America. Over the past months, fans pitched Bogota, Colombia and even some remote islands that were reportedly hinted at in 'Red Dead Redemption 2' and GTA Online's' Cayo Perico heist.

    Unfortunately, even Henderson has advised fans to take information about 'GTA 6' with skepticism. Rockstar Games has not yet confirmed that it is working on the next title for the 'GTA' series.
