(Rockstar Games)”Grand Theft Auto 5″Poster
With “Grand Theft Auto V” (“GTA”) released about three years ago, die-hard fans of the popular open world action-adventure video game series are left reeling for its sequel, “GTA 6.” However, despite the endless speculation of GTA’s fans, there has been no official announcement for the release of “GTA 6” except for speculations about the sequel being released in October 2018.
According to reports, “GTA 6” seems to be a work in progress and will most likely be out in 2018. However, the release of the game might further be delayed due to Rockstar Games, its game developer and publisher, changing their priority to making new downloadable contents (DLCs) for “GTA 5” instead of making progress on the sequel.
Rockstar has also noted that they would focus more on improving their content for “Grand Theft Auto 5” through the addition of these DLCs. It is also known that the game creator has a tendency to take year-long breaks before proceeding to work for the “Grand Theft Auto” game series.
Another probable cause of its delay lies with the possible integration of “Grand Theft Auto 6” for high-end gaming technologies like the PlayStation VR, other virtual gaming platforms, and probably also platforms for augmented reality.
If “GTA 6” will be released in 2018, then it would need to keep up with the latest technology in order to keep their streak of popularity and awards intact.
The “Grand Theft Auto 6” will probably be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PC. The sequel is expected to have more innovative features like enhanced resolutions for gameplay animations, more missions to unlock and an even bigger game world for players to explore.
For the sequel, a report by IGN indicates that Tokyo is part of the possible game locations. However, as of now, Rockstar has not confirmed nor paid attention to the rumors concerning the sequel of the “Grand Theft Auto” series.
