And if GTA 6 offered a one-of-a-kind card? A card capable of changing and evolving over the course of the game? This would be the case if we are to believe the esteemed Tom Henderson.
GTA 5 will have been a huge success for Rockstar. The most popular episode in the franchise. A success that it owes to its achievement and its extraordinary story, of course, but also to its multiplayer mode. GTA Online is going strong, to such an extent that the studio offers it as standalone in most digital stores on the market.
But above all, this episode can boast of having accompanied no less than three generations of consoles. Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S and the PlayStation 5.
GTA 6 could offer an evolving map
However, there will inevitably come a day when that will no longer be enough. And that probably explains why GTA 6 has been causing so much ink to flow since the beginning of the year. Many wonder what Rockstar has in store for the rest of the franchise.
It is still too early to tell, the title should not be announced for several years, but Tom Henderson would still have managed to get some vital information on the sequel to GTA 5.
First point and not least, the menu. Rockstar would not have opted for a fixed formula. GTA 6 should indeed offer players an expandable universe, and this map could therefore be extended on the fly through DLC and updates. The idea would be to be able to offer players new places to explore constantly and according to the new content that will be offered to them. This would extend the life of the title even more.
A launch that is not planned for now
Bad news, however, GTA 6 would not be coming out anytime soon. Our source is indeed counting on a launch for 2025 … at best. Either in four years. From our side, however, this choice seems logical.
GTA 5 is still very successful and the release of its new gen version should revive players’ interest in the title. As we explained in this file, Rockstar has therefore not need of a new opus right away.
Besides, Rockstar has absolutely no interest in rushing things. Even less on such an awaited title. As we saw with Cyberpunk 2077 or even with No Man’s Sky, gamers are not the type to show understanding when a title does not live up to the promises made by its publisher.
And here, in this case, we are still talking about an AAA title that belongs to one of the most popular franchises in the history of video games. The slightest mistake could have disastrous repercussions on the reputation of Rockstar and Take Two.
On our side, in any case, we prefer the studio to take its time.
