Ever since its launch in 2013, Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Online, developed by Rockstar Games and published by Take-Two Interactive, has become a reliable revenue powerhouse. As the fan community eagerly waits for the debut of Grand Theft Auto VI, vibrant discussions on Reddit are shaping the dreams of future content updates for the existing GTA Online universe.
One particular concept taking centre stage in these debates is a possible zombie apocalypse event set in the crime-ridden city of Los Santos. A precedent for such a theme exists in Rockstar’s own history. They rolled out the widely acclaimed ‘Undead Nightmare’ expansion for the original Red Dead Redemption in 2010, creating waves of excitement among fans. However, despite high demand, it seems the chances of a similar expansion for Red Dead Redemption 2 are slim.
Reddit users aren’t holding back their enthusiasm for an undead uprising in GTA Online. Imaginative suggestions fill threads, with ideas ranging from menacing non-playable characters (NPCs) who become aggressive after dark, to eerily deserted vehicles littering the streets of Los Santos. The notion of players banding together to fight a city-wide zombie siege is a recurring highlight, fueling the anticipation.
While the odds of witnessing a zombie apocalypse event in GTA Online remain unknown, there’s a feeling that the scale could tip if fans’ voices are loud enough. Rockstar Games might be compelled to breathe life into an ‘Undead Los Santos Nightmare,’ ideally for a haunting Halloween 2023 event.
On a related note, the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto VI has stirred up some worries within the fan base. Concerns are being voiced that the capabilities of the Xbox Series S might limit the ambitious scope of the highly-anticipated game. As always, the gaming community waits with bated breath to see how these developments unfold.
