Big news from Rockstar as we’ve received more information regarding their active development of GTA VI. On top of that we may have been given potential story elements and how long the game may end up being. Though as a quick recap, this all started when Rockstar Games, the developer behind the Grand Theft Auto Franchise tweeted last month about their active development of GTA VI.
Many of you have been asking about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series.— Rockstar Games (@RockstarGames) February 4, 2022
With every new project, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we've previously delivered. We're pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the series is underway.
Their most recent game GTA V was released almost ten years ago and still is one of the most popular games to stream, watch and play across all of its platforms. With it even getting a next generation release this month.
However, according to sources GTA VI may end up being Rockstars most ambitious one yet being located in most of the previous locations such as Liberty City, Vice City, San Adresas, etc. Even a possible new location in Europe. If it all pans out it would make these latest instalments one of if not the largest games the company has ever created.
Fans are certainly excited as they’ve been waiting for a new game to be announced but now tensions are high between them as a game this large could take years to make. Reports indicate the teams at Rockstar have been working on some aspects as early as 2015. However, these are all rumors and nothing has yet to be confirmed by Rockstars official account.
With a game this large even its run time may end up making a record as one of the longest run times. Rumors state it may be over 500+ hours to 100% the game. That would make it longer than well-known games like Animal Crossing which has over 300 hours of gameplay.

Until we get official confirmation from Rockstar Games all of this is just speculation, but what Rockstar is talking about is as earlier stated GTA V coming to next gen consoles. Which has some fans upset feeling that Rockstar should focus on remakes or sequels to older titles instead of rehashing GTA V again. What do you think about all this news?
