The release date for GTA 6 is one of the most anticipated announcements but, what else are Rockstar planning? A massive Grand Theft Auto Online project that’s what!
Rockstar Games are in no rush to share any official news about a release date for GTA 6 for both PS5 and Xbox Series X. But like many others, we’re sure you’ll agree we just want a date… Doesn’t matter how far away just let us know! There have been and undoubtedly will be loads of ‘official’ leaks sharing its setting, location and release date. But, we all know to take those with a pinch of salt until Rockstar makes their own announcement.
One example is a recent map leak, which in fact could’ve been made outside of Rockstar Games.
Unfortunately, based on recent reports and sources it could be another year before any solid GTA6 news is shared.
One positive to take from this is that both consoles will have been out for some time and the player base will have increased meaning more interest in the next AAA game. We hope for a surprise launch which we wouldn’t put past Rockstar but, in reality, we’ll be waiting until 2022. But, that doesn’t mean they aren’t working on something in the meantime!
GTA Winter Update
Earlier this year Rockstar confirmed they had big updates planned for GTA Online. They told fans:
“Later this year players can expect more big updates for both games, including some exciting new extensions and augmentations to an existing role in Red Dead Online, and the biggest ever update for GTA Online, featuring our latest take on Heists in an entirely new location.”
The parts in bold are what we know about the next update so it’s going to be bigger than the 2019’s Diamond Casino update. The quote itself leaves us with more questions like does their ‘new take on heists’ mean slightly different or a completely new approach? Does ‘an entirely new location’ mean a new island or just some added land to the original map? Either way, we can’t wait to find out!
We’d like to think that this winter update would be announced around the same time as last years. If this is the case we could potentially see news around 3rd December, with the update arriving on 10th December. We did also see teasers of the update in the weeks leading up to the announcement so be sure to keep an eye out for those during November!
