GTA6 has been in pre-production since 2012 guys, Rockstar tend to have multiple projects on back burner until they go live, one of these was a new IP due out after RDR2 (back when it was aiming for a 2016 release).

The interesting question is if GTA 6 will be released for the current generation and next generation of consoles or only for the next generation consoles.

It should take place in Vice City. Maybe it will be released 20 years after GTA Vice City in 2022.

GTA VI is just about the last title I want from Rockstar right now even though it’s an inevitability. After GTA V and RDR2, it’d be nice to have them return to the franchises that really need some love like Bully or Manhunt.

Actually, scratch that, I don’t want to play a Bully game where I need to get to the cafeteria on time to eat a balanced meal to keep my health core filled. Maybe just let those sleeping dogs lie.

We all know it's coming but will it arrive before or after next gen, that's what I want to know.

Come on GTA VIce City! A new ip would have been great, but I'll be more than happy for a return to Vice City. Also they could easily be doing Bully 2 with a relatively small team. It doesn't need to be anywhere near as big a project as a GTA or an RDR.

2022 or 23 release.

Ya'll know that even though RDR2 was taking up most of the manpower, people at Rockstar have been working on GTA6 + other stuff since for years and years right?

Literally everyone over there hasnt been working on RDR2 this whole time.

This is good news because I thought they were actually making Bully as the next game and I don't give two shits about Bully. Looks like they are working on both so that's good.

If I remember correctly GTAIV had an epic leak. Someone stumbled across a van, presumably people doing research of city locations for mapping in game, and they had the game logo etc on documents inside when the guy took a peek through the window.

I would love Bully 2 but I'd also love GTA returning to Vice City. But what I really want is for it to take place in 1989, just for the music. I hated the radio stations in 4 and 5.

Seems like it is. Casting have apparently started.

Going back to Miami I see... :P


So we went from:
GTA 3 = Liberty City
GTA Vice City = Vice City
GTA San Andreas = Los Santos/San Andreas
GTA IV = Liberty City
GTA V = Los Santos/San Andreas
GTA VI = ?

It would make sense for Rockstar to revisit the Miami settings with GTA VI, unless they want to try something different and do a major European-like city.
Oh wow! That would be sooo cool! I've been wanting a sequel for Bully ever since I played the original all the way back in Christmas 2006!

Also, 4K Miami would be pretty cool as a setting for the next GTA too.

Rockstar Leeds was hiring all sorts of creative roles associated with terrain and stuff recently, so they’re pumping something out.

GTAV is great, to be clear, but frankly disappointing in a lot of ways with a distinct "been here done that" feeling. It's still the same Grand Theft Auto, just a lot shinier.

RDR2, on the other hand, is a revelation. It feels ambitious and innovative, like it pushes the genre forward. GTAV felt like a culmination of their old formula, while RDR2 feels like embarking on a new design philosophy.

I'd like to see them stray away from GTA and continue to explore what they started in RDR2.

what im wondering is if they'll ever make a new ip at this point. or revisit one of their older ones
There was a new IP planned to be released between RDR2 and GTA Next, it was known internally as Project Medieval. Though apart from the outline design and some pre-production not more is known about it especially since the whole fallout at Rockstar North in 2014.

The game has been in pre-production since 2012 and entered full production in 2015/6.
What makes you say, specifically, that GTA 6 has been in pre-production since 2012 and went into full production in 2015/2016 ?

I mean, why not (for example) pre-production in 2013, and full production in 2016/2017, or any other set of years for each phase of production.

Just curious!

GTA6's release window may well be lining it up perfectly for the next gen PS/Xbox launches. Imagine how good that open world is going to look with the PS's SSD tech on top of the increased cpu/gpu speeds.

It would be smart of them to release it on mature platforms at the end of the cycle the same exact way they handled GTAV to maximize the amount they can sell.

I can't answer for certain as I've not been there for years, all I can say is that things were majorly pushed back, entirely possible that Bully II was taken off the shelf again (shelved in 2009 and 2011) and resumed instead as Project Medieval might've been a Leslie Benzies project.

Internal documents with project outlines dating back to early 2013. GTA Next was already in pre-production and a skeleton crew at Rockstar North was also doing pre-production on a new IP.

Also note, Vice City was only ONE of the options considered, they outlined 4 or 5 potential ideas, one including Las Vegas (Las Venturas) in the 1970's and another being a midwest town "dripping with atmosphere" with a lot of interiors and areas to explore.

Do you know what the protagonists for Gta next we’re going to be? Female protagonist possibly?

That's a shame, I wanted to see Bully 2. Business wise GTA 6 obviously makes more sense though.

A 1970s mobster Las Vegas setting would maybe get me more hyped than Vice City. I really want a Mobster game from R* after RDR2 chapter 4 giving us a taste of what that might be, though preferrably 1920s, but I'd settle for 60s/70s.
