The locale and two characters, who resemble Bonnie and Clyde, are revealed in new Grand Theft Auto 6 information.
According to reports, Grand Theft Auto 6 will be set in Miami and feature two playable characters. The sequel is two or more years away, and it will have an in-game environment that evolves and grows over time, according to a Bloomberg story on Rockstar Games’ changing workplace culture.
According to Bloomberg, the story campaign will center on two playable characters who resemble Bonnie and Clyde, one of whom is a Latina woman. Even though GTA: San Andreas had female playable characters in 1997, this will mark the first time a fully voiced female lead has ever appeared in a GTA game. Although there are little details on the second playable character, the Bonnie and Clyde allusion hints that players will be playing as a pair causing mayhem in the neighborhood.
GTA 6 is supposedly a loose continuation of GTA: Vice City because it is situated in a fictionalized version of Miami and the surrounding areas. The game’s backdrop was originally intended to encompass regions throughout North and South America, but these ideas were ultimately shelved in favor of a more pleasant working atmosphere.
However, this does not imply that GTA 6 will be a simple game. According to Bloomberg, the in-game environment is enormous and already has more indoor locations than any other GTA game. According to the article, Rockstar has worked hard to rein down its ambition for this sequel after complaints of severe crunch and unhealthy working conditions surfaced during the creation of Red Dead Redemption 2. The business is now attempting to completely avoid overtime, which has slowed progress but made employees happy.
According to Bloomberg, the release of GTA 6 is at least two years away because of Rockstar’s new regulations and the Covid-19 pandemic, which are both slowing down development. Additionally, Rockstar intends to continuously update GTA 6 as a live-service product, offering new missions and maybe entire cities for players to explore in both single-player and multiplayer game modes. This will be a change from Rockstar’s support policy for GTA 5, which saw a significant influx of content for GTA Online but next to nothing for the main campaign.
If there are no further delays, GTA 6 should debut around 2023 or 2024.
