Following the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 back in October 2018, attention has shifted to the next Rockstar title. It looks like the two most likely games to be released next for Rockstar is either Bully 2 or Grand Theft Auto 6.
While neither games have been officially announced, and there’s the possibility that Bully 2 will never happen, Grand Theft Auto 6 is almost certainly in development, and rumours about the game have been popping up more frequently over the last year.
The most recent rumour came from a now deleted Pastebin post and suggests that Grand Theft Auto 6 will take place in two cities, Liberty City and Vice City. Players will allegedly start out as a small-time criminal in Liberty City before working their way up the ranks before becoming involved in a famous gang that operates out of Vice City.
The rumour also states that players will be able to travel between the two cities using a vast stretch of highways and ‘Blaine County-like countrysides’.
Here is the Pastebin post in full:
“GTA 6 is going to feature multiple big cities which players can travel across.
In the title which will make you a kind of a drug lord. You will start as a small time guy in Liberty City doing odd chores and small-time thefts and eventually work your way to Vice City where you will join a famous gang. You will be tasked to look after business in liberty city until you are brought back to Vice City and soon become the drug lord.
Rockstar Games has an idea about when they want to release the game but the corporates want to analyze the sales of PS5 and the Xbox 2. This game cant come [out] for ps4 because of memory restrictions. We have 2 major cities along with a vast stretch of highways and Blaine County like countrysides in the middle of it all. There will also be some kind of timed era between the missions with flashbacks.
Certain shops will sell different types of items in different eras. RDR2 type stranger dialogues will be implemented.
There are big plans in online and with major content like newer towns. They are working closely with Microsoft and Sony on cloud gaming which will help them enable online to be a continuous process.”
Of course, all these rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt, and until Rockstar come out and officially announce Grand Theft Auto 6, we won’t know what direction the game will be going in.
As noted by Dexerto though, this rumour may have a small bit of credibility to it due to the fact that it was deleted. As they state, the Pastebin was posted from a guest account, and so it would be unlikely that they themselves deleted the post. If that’s the case, then it’s more than likely Pastebin themselves took the post down, but why? Perhaps Rockstar got in touch and demanded the post be removed, which could suggest that perhaps there is something to it?
