Even though GTA 5 still hasn’t made it on PCs yet, it appears that Rockstar are not wasting a second thinking about the future and they have already started to work on Grand Theft Auto 6. It is unclear right now how early the development process is, but it’s at least in discussions, as Rockstar’s president Leslie Benzies admitted.
Speaking to Develop magazine, Benzies said: “We’ve got about 45 years worth of ideas we want to do. We don’t know what GTA VI will be, but we’ve got some ideas”. Benzies continued, saying “It comes from the idea first. Where is it going to be set is the first question. Then that defines the missions; you’re doing different things in LA than in New York or Miami. The map and story get worked up together, and the story is a basic flow of how it works out so you can layer the missions in.”
45 years worth of ideas, huh? Then why not cram them all in to an amazingly epic game? And no, I don’t mean doing that by hitting us with DLCs every two weeks.
Back to GTA 6, though, it appears that we’re talking about some extremely early stages of development and probably right now the game only has the location set and probably a very thin plot line. Still, Rockstar is working on something and hopefully they won’t feel the need to hurry and deliver a poor product. Oh, wait, they still haven’t released the game on PCs yet, so they’re definitely not in a hurry!
Do you feel at least a bit surprised by the fact that Rockstar has confirmed that they’re already working on GTA 6?
I guess the only surprise is that they are even announcing that they are making a new one so soon already.
