As per the leak, the game might be released by October 2023 and that the first two chapters of Grand Theft Auto 6 might be set up in the 1970s. It further said that the new version of the game is expected to give a more grounded feel and will be set in Florida.
Another rumour about the trailer release of Grand Theft Auto 6 was sparked after a job listing was shared by Rockstar for the role of Cinematic Gameplay Capture Artist in February. Sportskeeda speculates the possibility that the job opportunity may not have anything to do with the game, however, it agrees to the possibility that a trailer for the game might be released.
Then, Tom Henderson, a YouTuber had claimed that Grand Theft Auto 6 will have a playable male and female protagonist. The claim was backed by LegacyKillaHD, another YouTuber.
Here's the complete list of expected updates, storylines, gameplay, maps and more in GTA 6.
Codename is PROJECT AMERICAS.
Set in both Vice City and a new fictional location based on Rio de Janeiro.
Some linear missions take place in Liberty City, but it isn't an open world (think Ludendorff in GTA 5).
Game will balance realism and arcade and it won't be as realistic as Red Dead Redemption 2.
One playable protagonist: male, not female, despite supposed leaks.
Set in 1970s-1980s.
You play as an up and coming drug lord-wannabe named "Ricardo". Another key character called “Kacey” is a part of the narrative. You start off as a grunt doing runs as a cocaine smuggler from Vice City to the new large South American area before making connections with big-time drug lords and making your way up. Multiple cities.
There will also be a giant prison which will play a part in the game.
Will feature a 'chapter' system similar to a Tarantino flick or Red Dead Redemption 2.
Weather is a heavy focus (hurricanes, floods, etc).
Buildings change over the eras, vehicles too. So older, rare classic cars get more expensive as time progresses etc. Full economy.
Heavily inspired by Netflix's Narcos.
They want to have an incredible 70s/80s soundtrack.
A younger Martin Madrazo will make an appearance as will his father who is a big drug lord at the time. You do some missions for the Madrazo family involving hits on other gangs.
Drug empire building is a mechanic similar to Vice City Stories but bigger. Think the GTA Online system and dial it up to 10.
You can only have weapons on your person. No arsenal in your back pocket, like Red Dead Redemption 2.
Your personal vehicle will be like your horse saddle in Red Dead Redemption 2. All your equipment is stored in the trunk. You also store your body armour in the car. If you wear it, it appears, no longer just an invisible thing.
There will be tons of subtitle reading. Think Max Payne 3 amounts, very immersive, like watching an episode of Narcos. Whenever you're in South America, don't expect to hear much English. Vice City, however, is a mix of everything, but mostly English.
Last bit of narrative info, it will discuss topics such as HIV and the immigration crisis of the time. A fictional version of Fidel Castro etc.
Next-gen only, not PS4 or Xbox One [aka PS5 and Xbox Project Scarlett]
GTA 6 is now their primary focus, alongside another title (which might be Bully 2).
Game is still in Pre-Alpha so names, locations, details could and probably will change.
No ETA on a release date.
