Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto (GTA) has been one of the most renowned video games series. The GTA 5 was one of the most awaited video games ever launched. Within three days after its official launch, the sales of GTA 5 had exceeded one billion dollars. As a result, it became the fastest-selling entertainment product in history.
The rumours regarding the GTA 6 have started to surface. This has again filled GTA fans with enthusiasm who have been awaiting the series for the past few years.
What is the probable date of release for GTA 6?
Gaming is a fast-evolving domain. With the advancement of Electronics and Computer Science, video games and the platforms they run on are constantly undergoing improvements. The GTA 5 was released a few months before the launch of the PlayStation 4. Since then the gaming hardware has significantly upgraded.
Rockstar Games usually release a GTA sequel every five years. The GTA 4 was released in 2008, GTA 5 in 2013. Hence, the 6th edition of this renowned video game series was expected to arrive in 2018. However, this was not the case. Gamers are still awaiting the sequel to come. Although Rockstar Games didn’t release a GTA sequel, it ported the GTA 5 to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. Meanwhile, it released another big game i.e. the Red Dead Redemption 2. Now, Rockstar Games seems to come back to the development of the GTA 6 and may release it in 2022.
Why do we expect GTA 6 to be the most detailed so far?
It is believed that the GTA game series is ahead of its time. The detailing and optimisation in GTA games truly set the standard for other video games and gaming hardware. Today, companies working in the field of graphics are developing high-performance GPUs. For example, the NVIDIA RTX 3080 can perform advanced gaming tasks like DLSS AI Acceleration and Ray-Tracing. On the other hand, game developers like Electronic Arts and Ubisoft are designing high-end games like Battlefield 5 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla respectively that seriously put these GPUs on a test.
GTA is one of the most comprehensive open-world video game series. Unlike First-Person Shooter (FPS) games or a racing game that are dedicated to a single mode of action, GTA offers much more to do. A GTA character interacts freely with the world map that consists of weapons, cars, buildings, and people. This results in an enormous size of the world map as well as the size of the game. The size of the GTA 5 game was 72GB. Considering the map expansion and enhanced detailing due to the Ray-Tracing feature and DLSS AI Acceleration, the size of the GTA 6 is expected to surpass 100GB.
