Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6 or GTA VI) is an expected upcoming game from Rockstar Games.

In August 2022, Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Take-Two Interactive (Rockstar's parent company) said on an investor call that GTA 6 is "well underway"

"With development of the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series well underway, the Rockstar Games team is determined to once again set creative benchmarks for the series, our industry, and for all entertainment, just as the label has done with every one of their frontline releases."

The last GTA game to launch was GTA V back in 2013

Rumours

There are a number of rumours surrounding the game, from a variety of sources:

  • The game is likely to be set in Florida - starring a new Vice City (Miami)
  • The map may include surrounding Caribbean islands - although these may not be accessible in the open world [1]
  • The protagonists may be a twin brother/sister
  • The game will be built on a new version of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE 9) which supports up to 16K textures[2]
  • The game may have been reduced in size, down from Rockstar's original plans to cover large parts of North and South America, due to the complexity of the game

Original plans for the title, which is code-named Project Americas, were for it to be more vast than any Grand Theft Auto game to date. Early designs called for the inclusion of territories modeled after large swaths of North and South America, according to people familiar with the plans. But the company reeled in those ambitions and cut the main map down to a fictional version of Miami and its surrounding areas.
