Development is ‘well under way’ on the next-gen GTA

Rockstar Games confirmed Friday that it’s currently working on the next game in the Grand Theft Auto series — presumably, but not yet officially, titled Grand Theft Auto 6 — saying that active development on its next-gen open-world crime spree game is “well underway.”

Confirmation of a new Grand Theft Auto came tucked away in a community update on all things GTA, including Grand Theft Auto 5 — originally released way back in 2013 — and the enduring Grand Theft Auto Online.

Here’s what Rockstar had to say about the next Grand Theft Auto game:

“With the unprecedented longevity of GTAV, we know many of you have been asking us about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered — and we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway. We look forward to sharing more as soon as we are ready, so please stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official details.

“On behalf of our entire team, we thank you all for your support and cannot wait to step into the future with you!”

Rockstar did not offer any additional details on the next entry in the GTA franchise — release date, platforms, the game’s location, and gameplay specifics will have to wait until the developer sees fit to announce them. But with an audience of more than 155 million players on Grand Theft Auto 5 and an ever-growing world in GTA Online, expectations for GTA 6 are high.



Grand Theft Auto 5 will find an even larger audience next month, when the game is re-released in enhanced form for PlayStation 5 And Xbox Series X. Rockstar will bring GTA 5 to the latest consoles from Sony and Microsoft on March 15. Those versions of GTA 5 will feature updated visuals: up to 4K resolution, up to 60 frames per second, texture and draw distance upgrades, HDR options, and ray tracing. A stand-alone version of GTA Online will also arrive on March 15, which will be available for free for the first three months to PlayStation 5 players.

The Grand Theft Auto franchise turns 25 this year. The first game, Grand Theft Auto, was released on MS-DOS, PlayStation, and Windows PC in 1997. After two entries and spinoffs, Rockstar reinvented its action-crime series with 2001’s Grand Theft Auto 3, a 3D open-world action-adventure game that spawned two bestselling sequels: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Grand Theft Auto 4 followed in 2008.

Since Grand Theft Auto 5’s release in 2013, Rockstar has released just one brand-new game: Red Dead Redemption 2. Over the past eight years, much of Rockstar’s effort has been focused on supporting GTA Online (and Red Dead Online), and re-releasing portions of its back catalog. The studio shipped Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition, a remaster of GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreasto mixed response in November. The collection launched in a buggy state, leading the contrite developer to apologize, update, and overhaul the game.

- There will be a female protagonist
- The game’s release is likely two years away
- Rockstar wanted to include large portions of North and South America but had to be reeled in
- The new map is a fictionalized Miami but will update over time

Sounds good. Have the best version of GTA V to play until then (y)

I know GTA V was a commercial success. But I believe that it was no way near GTA Vice City and San Andreas when it comes to the 'fun element'.

There was no Flying in a helicopter, firing a tank, or riding a plane.


I found the gameplay as gory and repulsive especially the part where a character smashed the brain of another with part of the brain stuck to his foot. I called it quits after watching the utterly repulsive scene.

I personally (and many other I believe) want the fun stuff of the Vice City and San Andreas back, and not the boring repeated senseless killing in HD as in GTA V.

That was the perfect intro to the character of TREVOR! There are two more characters in the game, Franklin was more to your liking, had you played the game further.

GTA is all about social satire & I love that! Sadly, I hear they are toning it down in the 6th! It's kinda worrying but R* knows best!

On a rare instance like this one, I've grown tired of the old GTA formula much like CerebralTiger. I'm all for shaking up the formula and making the core stronger wrt gameplay and combat. Hope they improve that. Moving away from the juvenile humor and out of place satire is a bonus.

They need to improve on those tank controls! Everything else is a step up from the PS2 days! Especially in 5, the mission structure was amazing, switchin' between all 3 characters *sometimes mid-mission*, the heists & everything.

We have disabled traderscore and are working on a fix. There was a bug with the plugin

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Its based on the same architecture, if anything PC has higher tier options than what is available in consoles. RDNA2 doesn't have dedicated RT cores so its going to lack behind Intel and Nvidia. Lets see if RDNA3 changes that.

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    i meant it feels way too lackluster in comparison to what else is on PC
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    how do you mean? RDNA2 is same everywhere
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    their console output is ahead in terms of RT
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    PC RT has been such a secondary thing for AMD
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Saw the rest of the benchmarks for A770.... AMD totally got rekt in RT
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Plague Tale Requiem supports it 👍
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Not universal but the most widely adopted. You can even get DLSS working in games that atleast support FSR, so the list grows larger.
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    of course, but then again DLSS isn't universally supported either, neither is the, seemingly on paper, easier to implement FSR 2.0
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    The ideal world lacks in games supporting it too
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    but so far that ideal world completely excludes dx11
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    in an ideal world XeSS is a cheaper DLSS equivalent
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Chandoo wants DLSS. No way he's buying AMD or Intel lol
    Link
  • XPremiuM XPremiuM:
    If you want the best performance, go for Nvidia. If you want the best value, go for AMD. Intel at this point is only for hipsters. That will probably change in a few years though. But for now, Intel isn't a good choice for gamers.
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    it seems like its only good if you only want to play DX12 or Vulkan games right now
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Their drivers need alot of work for older games. I think their GPUs arent even supported for older hardware
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    yeah and that doesn't bode well cause people will still want to play all those DX11 games as well
    Link
  • iampasha iampasha:
    Looks like they didn't optimise much for dx11.....or like AT ALL
