Over a year has passed since Rockstar Games revealed in February 2022 that they were actively developing the much-anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA VI). Since then, the silence from Rockstar regarding the game’s progression has been deafening, leaving fans frustrated and eager for updates.
This marked lack of communication from the renowned game developer has exacerbated the impatience among its fanbase. Some of the more dramatically-inclined fans have even expressed half-joking concerns that they might not live long enough to see the game’s eventual release.
Amid the radio silence from Rockstar, unofficial leaks from an early version of GTA VI have emerged. Although they are not officially endorsed, these leaks have set the rumour mill into overdrive, inciting speculation and debate among fans, but failing to provide any concrete details.
Speculation surrounding the game’s setting has particularly captured fans’ imagination. The rumor mill suggests a possible return to the beloved Vice City and the inclusion of South American locations. These rumours, though enticing, remain unconfirmed.
Another source of intense speculation is the potential protagonists. Fans have latched onto rumours of two characters, named Jason and Lucia, who could offer dual playable perspectives. But without official confirmation, these names are just more pieces in the puzzle of GTA VI.
The early announcement of GTA VI in 2022 has also sparked debates among the fan community. A popular theory proposed by a Reddit user posits that the early reveal could have been a strategic move by Rockstar to counterbalance negative press and enhance investor confidence.
The ongoing silence has further led fans to speculate that Rockstar might be constantly revising their plans for the game. These changes could potentially be the cause of the lack of updates, though this theory, like many others, remains unconfirmed.
In terms of release dates, various sources have indicated that we might not see GTA VI on the market until 2024 or 2025. Such a long wait could indeed be the reality for eager fans.
When it does eventually drop, the game is anticipated to be available across multiple platforms. Expectations are that it will be compatible with PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
While speculation continues to swirl, the clamour for official updates grows louder. As of now, fans and gamers worldwide can only wait and hope for Rockstar Games to break the silence soon.
