Rockstar would be working as before the arrival of GTA Online.
According to the latest leaks about the new Rockstar Games game, GTA VI will be played by a woman, and will feature a story of drug dealers set in Miami. Although it might not be the only city visited throughout the game.
Previously it has been rumored on occasion that GTA VI could also be the first game in the saga to have several locations, but it seems that the idea has been losing steam and there seems to be a certain consensus among leakers that these new locations will arrive post-launch in the form of DLC. Either for the individual game or also for its online aspect.
According to Tez2, a well-known GTA leaker, Rockstar has the idea of “expand over time” GTA VI in the traditional way in which it was done before the arrival of GTA Online (via GTAForums).
“When GTA V was released, the development of Single Player DLC had already started before launch. This is how we found out about the audio files mentioning the upcoming opening of the Casino and other activities. Also, Liberty City was being ported to GTA V, but in very early stages of development. both projects they were discardedof course, in 2015,” says the leaker
As for the GTA VI DLCTez2 comments that “The first wave of new cities and quests we’re getting as DLC will definitely be planned before release. That way Rockstar will be able to allocate resources to any new titles they work on after VI launches.”
“As for the new cities, I think for the most part we will receive instances of new cities or islands. Cayo Perico or North Yankton style. That way, Rockstar can introduce a new heist for the next GTA Online mode with each new DLC,” the leaker speculates. “If we’re lucky, we might get every once in a while a fully developed new city“.
GTA VI Release
Of course, nothing that the leaker says is officially confirmed by Rockstar, which has rather revealed few details of this adventure to date. Among other things, still does not have a specific release date and it does not seem that it will be in the short term. The latest indications suggest that GTA VI would arrive between 2024 and 2025.
