Good news for GTA fans: finally there’s new information about the next game in the series! Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier gives us the biggest collection of GTA VI information we’ve received so far.
Who’ll we play as?
The journalist’s report states that one of the main characters of GTA VI will be a woman of Latin origin, that’s, the first female character with whom you can play the campaign in a GTA game. This character is part of a story inspired by the famous criminal couple Bonnie and Clyde, who robbed several restaurants, banks and gas stations in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Missouri between 1932 and 1934. We don’t know yet if any of the other playable characters will be Clyde’s equivalent, but the chances are good.
The report says that the action will take place in Vice City, and that the game will be quite large and have more interiors (something the games in the series have always needed), and the developers will add more cities along the way.
When is GTA VI coming out?
Now comes the question we’re all asking ourselves: When can we get our hands on GTA VI? Some analysts say that the game will be released between April 2023 and March 2024, while others say that it won’t be released before 2024.
The game has been in the works since 2014, which means that 2024 marks ten years since GTA VI has been in the works, but that’s a time when Rockstar has gone through some pretty big changes. In 2018, hundreds of employees spoke out about the poor working conditions at the studio, which led to drastic changes within the company.
According to Rockstar employees, the morale in the team is better than ever. The reasons for this are changes in the schedule, hiring employees as full-time employees, and dealing with abusive managers. Employees say that these things have had, and still have, a direct impact on the content of the new GTA VI.
