Grand Theft Auto 6 is still not formally announced and gamers all over the globe are speculating about the possible locations it will be set in. However, the latest in the line of leaks is a document that is being claimed to be authored by Rockstar Games’ co-founder Sam Houser. The interesting bit about this document is the date on it. The leak is considered to be sourced from a document dating back to 2013.
Tipsters Yan2295 and Razed, are the names behind this leak. Considering their previous accuracy, this leak is receiving much more credibility. The document sheds light on the development process of the game that had apparently commenced way back in 2013. It claims 60 people were already working on the GTA 6 project that year.
The main highlight of the document is the possible locations that have been mentioned in it. In line with the previous leaks, Vice City is expected to make a comeback after its original release in 2002. The other interesting choice was Vegas in the 70s. This can probably be played as a back-story for the main character. The other locations include Chicago/Detroit, Mexico City and a small town GTA that could offer a more realistic version of the game.
GTA Vice City has been one of the most popular versions of the game. A return to the same location could work in favour of the creators but it could also limit the scope of generating an all new experience for the gamer.
Despite the leaked document, there are a lot of factors that can still affect the actual selection of cities in the game. A long time has passed since the document was written, there are chances that the developers diverged from original plan.
As far as the official launch of the game is considered, there’s no clarity from the company. Rockstar Games’ parent company Take-Two Interactive, in a recent earnings call, claimed that the brand has a very “robust pipeline" in terms of release schedule. However, they also stated that these releases may not all be big names.
