Various rumors and leaks on the existence of the 6th Grand Theft Auto have continued to strengthen over the past few months. After previously known that there was a former Rockstar Games employee who listed his work as Vehicle Artist GTA 5 and GTA 6 through his resume, other rumors now emerged stating that GTA 6 will take place on Vice City and Liberty City.
This was quoted from a post on Pastebin (via Game Rant), where the post claimed that players would later start a small criminal career in Liberty City and then join a famous gang in Vice City. Furthermore, players also seem to be going back and forward to carry out missions between the two cities.
Given that GTA Vice City itself appears on the PS2 console which is now around 19 years old, and the Liberty City that appears in the first GTA, GTA III, and GTA IV, it is interesting if we can see the two cities remodeled with current graphical display wrapping a fresh story and good gameplay.
Even more, there are rumors about the console for this resurrection. Pastebin’s posts declared that it will be presented in the next PS5 and Xbox in 2020. This statement indirectly purposed that GTA 6 will appear as one of the first games in PS5, but only if the latest Sony console will actually be released in 2020.
Also keep in mind that rumors are not necessarily true, at least until it confirmed directly by the Rockstar Games. Sadly, when this article was written, Pastebin’s post was deleted. But luckily, the Dexerto website still gets an opportunity to copy the contents. You can check the full sentence below.
“GTA 6 is going to feature multiple big cities which players can travel across.
In the title, it will make you become a kind of drug lord. You will start as a small time guy in Liberty City doing odd chores and small-time thefts and eventually work your way to Vice City where you will join a famous gang. You will be tasked to look after business in liberty city until you are brought back to Vice City and soon become the drug lord.
Rockstar Games already planned about releasing the game. But before that, the corporates want to analyze the sales of PS5 and the Xbox 2. This game can’t be released on ps4 because of memory restrictions. We have 2 major cities along with a vast stretch of highways and Blaine County like the countrysides in the middle of it. There will also some kind of stories and deadlines between the missions, with added timeframe and flashbacks.
Certain shops will sell different types of items in different eras. RDR2 type stranger dialogues will be implemented.
There are big plans online and with major content like more towns. They are currently working with Microsoft and Sony on cloud gaming that will help them enable the game to be played online, for continuous process.”
