In an unexpected turn of events, new details about the highly anticipated game, Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6), were revealed by a Rockstar Games team member, Sayan Saha. Saha, a 2D/UI designer, briefly updated his LinkedIn profile, disclosing his involvement with the development of the much-awaited game. Although the details were swiftly removed, eager fans managed to capture the screen before the edits were made.
In his LinkedIn update, Saha noted that he contributed to the development of more than “500 in-game 2D assets for GTA VI” and over 25 “distinct brands”. This extensive list of assets gives a sneak peek into the depth and breadth of the game content, which is sure to provide an enriched gaming experience to the users. It also demonstrates the level of effort and resources that the Rockstar Games team is investing in the development of this much-anticipated sequel.
Saha’s contributions stretch beyond mere 2D assets. His work also involved the creation of item labels for several in-game items including chainsaws, fire extinguishers, electrical boards, boat engines, and automobile engines. This reveals a potential range of tools and weapons that the players might get their hands on in the game, providing a thrilling and diversified gameplay experience.
Additionally, Sayan Saha’s involvement extended to the creation of various miscellaneous items. He worked on certificates, forms, signs, and objects typically found in indoor environments. The inclusion of such items not only makes the game world feel more real and alive, but it also suggests that Rockstar Games is focusing on the minutest of details to ensure a fully immersive experience for players.
Interestingly, the inclusion of chainsaws and fire extinguishers as labelled items in Saha’s list suggests the possible return of these items as weapons in GTA 6. If this holds true, it can be a major hint at the gameplay mechanics, as these items were fan favorites in previous titles. The return of these popular weapons could add an exciting dimension to the gameplay.
