The Grand Theft Auto series has long been one of the most iconic in gaming, with players eagerly anticipating the release of the next instalment. Grand Theft Auto 6 was announced by Rockstar Games in February 2022, and fans have been eagerly waiting for updates ever since.
However, little has been revealed about the game’s progress, leaving fans to speculate and rely on leaks and rumours. One such rumour suggests that GTA VI may not include one of the series’ most iconic gameplay features: loot drops from NPCs.
In previous GTA games, players could collect cash, ammo, and weapons from NPCs they killed. However, as reported by Screen Rant, rumors suggest that this feature may be removed or altered in GTA VI. Red Dead Redemption 2’s slower, more realistic looting system could be making its way into the game, with players needing to wait for NPCs to bleed out before looting them.
Another rumoured addition to GTA VI is the inclusion of choice-based conversations with NPCs, which could have an impact on the game’s story outcomes. This feature was a hit in Red Dead Redemption 2, and many fans would love to see it make its way into the new Grand Theft Auto game.
Despite rumours of a release date, there has been no official announcement from Rockstar Games regarding the release of GTA VI. Fans have been eagerly awaiting a gameplay reveal, but recent news suggests that this may be further away than initially thought. Nevertheless, fans are sure that the wait will be worth it, as Rockstar Games is known for producing high-quality games with immersive gameplay and rich storylines.
While the absence of loot drops from NPCs may be disappointing for some fans, there is still much to look forward to in GTA VI. With rumours of new gameplay features, a brand new story, and stunning graphics, fans are eagerly anticipating the next chapter in the Grand Theft Auto series. As always, Rockstar Games is keeping its cards close to its chest, but fans can rest assured that GTA VI will be worth the wait.
