Grand Theft Auto 6 is without any doubt the most anticipated game ever. Despite there being a high demand for another GTA installment, the game’s developer is not giving away any information about GTA 6’s release date. There are many rumors and speculations about GTA 6’s release date but the only thing we know for sure is that it’s not going to be released in 2018.
Rockstar Games, the developer behind the GTA franchise, always left a gap of five years between the previous installments. Considering that GTA 5 was released in 2013, many analysts believe that 2018 is going to be the year when GTA 6 finally comes out. Sadly, this is not the case because Rockstar Games has its sights set on other goals.
Red Dead Redemption 2
The main reason why Rockstar Games is not releasing any important information regarding GTA 6 is because its adding the finishing touches to Red Dead Redemption 2 right now. This is a western-themed game where players get the chance to step in the world of cowboys and Indians where they can grab a revolver and make a name for themselves. While Read Dead Redemption 2 might sound like a cool game, it still isn’t what fans are asking for.
New Game Features
Another reason why Rockstar Game is surely not going to release GTA 6 during 2018 is that it needs to come up with new ideas for it. All GTA games kept improving with every new installment and Rockstar Games needs to do that GTA 6 as well. We should also mention that GTA 5 raised the standards bar since it’s the first installment that features three playable main characters.
Lastly, rumors are pointing out that Rockstar Games wants to introduce a whole new map that’s based on an entire country, and not on a city. This is going to require lots of time for the developers to create and its certainly pushing the game’s release date to at least 2020.
