2 time periods. Five cities. Two continents. More than a decade of development. Does GTA 6 really aim so high? According to this insider yes.
Few games have gamers on edge like Grand Theft Auto 6 . The weight of continuing to carry GTA V as the last game in the saga is becoming more and more noticeable ( fans are on fire ), so any clues, theories or “leakage” about GTA VI are received with open arms.
Today we bring you some statements from an “insider” on Twitter, called @ Onion00048 who states, according to sources close to development, one of the most widespread theories about GTA 6: that it will take place in different time periods .
That is something that has been talked about a lot , a return to the 80s in Vice City, although in this case there would be many more cities. But first let’s talk about the timelines: According to this insider, Chapter 1-2 takes place in 1985,chapter 3-5 takes place in Modern times .
Forward a ” form of time travel ” in GTA VI, something we assume refers to the possibility of visiting the two time periods throughout the game, and again we would have three characters.
Even more unexpected are the cities: The main locations are Vice City,Liberty City (prologue and epilogue) ,South America(Rio de Janeiro),and Havana,Cuba.A Chicago parody is present in the game but it’s only in the prologue with Liberty City.
This really pisses us off. How to offer several cities at the same time so different and distant? Would it have several open worlds?
The truth is that it is not the first time that there has been talk of a setting in several cities, and according to analyst Michael Pachter , these would be San Andreas (Los Santos, Vice City) but also Liberty City or even London, recreating “the entire world “, being able to travel by plane between cities and continents.
You have to be careful with these rumors, but the expectations are increasingly forming a very ambitious image, with multiple cities, timelines, intercontinental travel… Will Rockstar be up to the task ?
