We are all anxiously waiting for a Grand Theft Auto 6 announcement. The franchise is incredibly successful, and Grand Theft Auto 5 was a huge hit, and it is considered one of the best games in the history of video games.
Nonetheless, despite these achievements, Rockstar did not mention anything about the development of Grand Theft Auto 6. However, a couple of hints have been given to us. Here’s what we know so far.
As strange as it might sound, the current political climate might be one of the reasons it takes so much time to develop Grand Theft Auto 6. Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser explained that the game usually satirizes aspects of the society, but that is very hard to realise when it comes to the current context.
“It’s really unclear what we would even do with [GTA 6], let alone how upset people would get with whatever we did. Both intense liberal progression and intense conservatism are both very militant, and very angry,” Houser said. “It is scary but it’s also strange, and yet both of them seem occasionally to veer towards the absurd. It’s hard to satirize for those reasons. Some of the stuff you see is straightforwardly beyond satire. It would be out of date within two minutes, everything is changing so fast.”
New team members
Rockstar is looking for new team members for their upcoming projects. Several job listings were posted by Rockstar and it appears that they are searching for talented developers and artists. If we take a closer look at the job listings there are also slight clues which seem to indicate that GTA 6 is one of their upcoming projects. Since they are currently recruiting more members, it should take one year or more until we can expect an announcement.
