Gamers across the globe have waiting over ten years for the drop of GTA VI.
GTA V dropped in 2013 – and the next instalment has been a long time coming.
Excited gamers have been steadily drip-fed information over the past few months in the form of leaks.
However it was an announcement on November 8 that really threw them into a frenzy.
The release date is still yet to be confirmed by publisher, Rockstar Games.
However the nugget of information that gamers can cling to is that the trailer for GTA VI will be released next month.
This exciting release will chime in with the publisher’s 25th anniversary.
Rockstar Games’ president, Sam Houser, posted a comment to X.
“Next month marks the 25th anniversary of Rockstar Games,” he said.
“Thanks to the incredible support of our players worldwide, we have had the opportunity to create games we are truly passionate about.
“Without you, none of this would be possible, and we are so grateful to all of you for sharing this journey with us.”
His statement continued.
“We are very excited to let you know that in early December, we will release the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto. We look forward to many more years of sharing these experiences with all of you.”
Rumors say GTA VI could be the best GTA ever but here’s what we actually know so far about the long-awaited drop of GTA VI.
They revealed that it includes well over 100 unique locations to explore.
While most of the game will stay play out in Vice City, new locations include Port Gellhorn, Keys, Sundown, Ambrosia, and Redhill.
That’s in addition to more underwater spots to explore.
It’s predicted that the map may be as much as one-and-a-half-times bigger than its predecessor.
It’s also whispered that Rockstar Games will continuously update the game.
This means that more missions and cities will be available for players to explore, Eurogamer reports.
What’s more, the wanted system of GTA VI looks like it will be completely different to the previous games.
Changes include ‘witnesses’ being able to pass your physical description along to the authorities.
Other upgrades for GTA VI that have fans excited include money laundering, hacking and a Bonnie and Clyde-type dynamic.
In fact, according to a report by Bloomberg last year, it’s been rumored that the game will actually have a female lead for the first time.
The publication informed us that the “woman is Latina and will be one of a pair of leading characters in a story influenced by the bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde”
In a leak of GTA VI gameplay, fans noticed that police AI was notably more advanced.
This has sparked hopes that other NPCs will also get an upgrade minus the glitches of previous interations.
GTA VI is expected to be one of the most significant entertainment releases of the decade.
Launched in 2013, its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto V, has sold more than 185 million copies.
In fact, it’s the second-best selling video game of all time.
It falls just behind Minecraft, which may have had the edge due to being playable on phones.
