While Rockstar Games is plenty occupied with the looming release of Red Dead Redemption 2, most fans will always have questions of future titles lingering in the backs of their minds. Specifically, fans will always wonder when the next Grand Theft Auto title will hit. Those thoughts are obviously very premature but a new rumor may have given gamers their first indication as to the next Grand Theft Auto.
As far as what “next” means, a source for The Know (part of the Rooster Teeth network) claims that Grand Theft Auto 6 is targeting a release date of 2021. In the past, 3 years between Rockstar releases might have seemed like a large gap, but after Grand Theft Auto 5’s successful run it could be the new norm. Presumably, Red Dead Redemption 2 will have a deep online experience like Grand Theft Auto 5, which is how Rockstar kept fans happy without releasing anything new.
At the same time, there could be at least one Rockstar release in between Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto 6 in 2021. Bully 2 has been rumored for years and there is always Agent, Rockstar’s stealth action game that could very well be dead.
According to the source, Grand Theft Auto 6 (or whatever it will eventually be called) will send players back to Vice City, Rockstar’s stylized version of Miami. But the game won’t just use Vice City as a backdrop; players will also travel to South America throughout portions of the game. This could be a hint that the game is once again sending players back to the 1980s, and using the drug smuggling businesses of southern Florida and South America (notably Colombia) as a backdrop.
A split setting in Vice City (Miami) and South America also makes sense if Rockstar Games is trying to expand the scope of its storytelling. The developer has toyed with multiple settings before – most notably in Red Dead Redemption – but usually, those two areas are connected. Perhaps the South America portion will only be part of a prologue or flashbacks, and the meat of the game is set in Vice City.
No doubt fans will be excited to hear Vice City attached to Grand Theft Auto once again. While GTA 3 revolutionized the franchise with open world, third person exploration, Vice City showed what the series could offer from a story perspective. And now that the series has gone back to Liberty City and San Andreas, it only seems fitting that Vice City is next.
Of course, no matter how compelling or exciting the rumor may be, or how well it fits with Rockstar’s current trends, this should be taken with a huge grain of salt. The Know trusts its source, but Rockstar rumors are a dime a dozen.
