Analyzing The Past to Predict the Future - Everything We Should Consider on the Road to GTA VI

Recommended Posts

Once again - bloody great topic 👍.

 

I'm still hoping for an October 2020 announcement. The idea of waiting until October 2021 just to hear a bloomin' announcement makes me want to weep. 

 

Your argument about an install base is an interesting one. I'd argue that GTA VI announcing will shift a lot of consoles on its own - as it'd be about two years from announcement to release, so I don't think they'd need to wait for a large player base before announcing.

 

That said, things have just dried up here, and a lot of if is wishful thinking on my behalf...

This year is possible, especially if they're going for a smaller release, and aiming to have fewer delays. But I still struggle to see it actually happening. Even accounting for a 2023 release, I don't know if that will be the targeted release date, or eventual one. If it's targeted for 2023, we might not see an announcement until 2022. But I can't see us having to wait that long, either. 

 

I do agree about GTA VI selling more consoles, though. But yeah, it's super dry right now. Calm before the storm, I suppose 🤷‍♂️

The calmest of calms at the moment!

 

I work on the basis of about 2 years between announcement and release. For me, the idea of not even announcing until 2022 would make a lot lose interest in GTA. I'm sure it would shoot back up again, but it would fade from common discussion. These forums would die quite a bit if we were to wait until then for an announcement, I'd say. What do you think?

That's what made GTA V so hyped up, at least for me. It felt like he hadn't had a new GTA in so long, when it's only been 2 years since TBoGT. I used to feel like GTA needed to 'go away' for a bit, before they'd announce a new one. Strauss Zelnick even said they planned to rest GTA. But at this point, you simply can't rest that cash flow. And I understand that. I do agree on the 2 year gap between announcement and release, though. But I still think every time they plan to reduce it... and fail. Will next time be different? Perhaps, they do seem to be changing things up in a significant effort to reduce those issues. But time will tell. Either way, a 5-ish year gap between major titles still makes the most sense to me.

There was an old now deleted tweet made by a Boston cop years ago

 

Thanks to @NYC PATROL "Tomorrow I'm with Team Rockstar Games for a future video game! good news I'm really looking forward to see what these people do."

 

Maybe it's a GTA based on Boston have Boston be their version of Carcer City maybe? Midnight Club? Bully II?

Boston or something based on it would be good for Bully 2. For GTA? I'm not that sure.

Oh, I remember that. Over 6 years ago, though. Presuming it's still a thing, maybe it could be related to the future of the L.A. Noire series?

Whitey Bulger and the Winter Hill gang. Then there's The Town and The Departed. I could see Rockstar deciding to make Carcer City based on Boston as a possibility.

 

Only thing against Boston is the nightlife there's not much of it. Everything there closes early I think.

Knows way too much, and too many oddly specific details for a so called QA tester.

I think you can disregard any [This post was been flagged and will be monitored] you see on the internet. These people just talk out of their arses. Besides if you were a QA tester what would you do? Try to sell your story to a magazine (albeit they probably wouldn't take up on it considering it would piss of T2) or write on reddit about it?

Ah yes, by the time the reveal trailer for GTA 5 came out GTA 4 felt like a different time and place simply because it was from the pre-IPhone age. GTA 5 also feels like it’s from a different time and place from now as well.

Hey everyone, I hope you're all having a great day. Firstly, I've always enjoyed this thread and found it super interesting and just wanted to start out by saying thank you to everyone who has helped put together this timeline. I never knew about GTA 5 leaks pre- Feb 2011 and have always reverted to this thread for the past year or so. 

 

Anyways, before you discredit me for posting anything since I'm a dUmB yOuTuB3r, just know that I'm the messenger here and wouldn't waste anyone's time if I didn't feel this MIGHT somewhat contribute to the thread. 

 

With GTA 5 & RDR2 it seems as if R* has developed a pattern of announcing titles in October. And while I have been hoping for a GTA VI announcement in 2020 we're definitely running out of time but yesterday something very interesting was Tweeted towards me that is a bit of a reach, but the response was somewhat questionable in my opinion and reminded me of how R* responded to being asked about GTA 5 on October 5, 2011 by saying... And then announcing GTA 5 three weeks later. 

“When are we going to see a new GTA????? #bestgameever” - received via Twitter
“When's the new grand theft auto coming out?” - received via Twitter

Big, big shout to all Grand Theft Auto fans worldwide who we know are anxious to hear about what’s next for the franchise but we don’t have any news at this time.
All we can say is, right now, we’re focused on our next upcoming releases which are Max Payne 3 as well as L.A. Noire for PC, Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Edition and Max Payne for mobile devices. When and if we have anything to report regarding the Grand Theft Auto franchise, you know that we’ll do so here at the Newswire or on our Twitter or Facebook. 

 

While most leaks are fake, since October 2019-present day there's been 1-2 leaks I believe are credible. Anyways, the Tweets that were sent to me were (IDK how to insert the picture directly into the post): 

 

https://imgur.com/O9SI6RG - When asked about Bully 2, R* Support responded with "We have not released any information." Obviously they have cookie cutter, generic, copy and paste responses most of the time... But when asked about GTA 6, a different answer was given. 

 

https://imgur.com/mfZJ7tN - "Keep an eye out for info on that on our Newswire page." A completely different answer. Yeah, they were by two different people. But usually most answers are the same line. This could just be a giant reach. I'm not really intending for that to be. I just found it questionable and odd because of the timing. And as always, I revert back to this post to compare things and it's almost October time. So who knows. Just figured I'd share this with y'all and see if anyone found this interesting or if not, to just get a bunch of replies letting me know how horrible of a person I am for uploading YouTube videos discussing this stuff haha. Cheers. 

 

Oh also, I know there's one person who'll mention the date. The Tweets are from yesterday. Not July.

You made a whole video about my post. That is pretty cool! @ZacCoxTV

I first noticed it a week ago or so, so i was kind of suprised. 😄

 

And regarding your post i think @Len_Lfc explained it well on speculation part 4.

Those are nothing new. In fact they've been happening for years. it's just that it's only recently been highlighted, and people do what they do best; Read into nothing and get hyped.

Awesome! Thanks for the response. I never get hyped about anything. While there are leaks I believe to be true with sufficient evidence, until it comes from the horses mouth I don't look into them too much. The discussion though is so exciting to me and has been long before the modern era of media reporting, YouTube, etc... I'm talking the early days of forums like this back in 2003-2006. The thought of the unknown is so exciting. When I think of GTA 6 I think of flying of bright blue, clear ocean and hunting for Easter Eggs. Only time well tell.

GTA VI is not going to be announced before GTA V Part III: Stuck in Los Santos 😏 on PS5.

 

The fact they're putting ANY investment into that and not releasing it until a year from now, ticks me off, as it more than certainly guarantees no discussion of any major future plans before that.

 

Going by their logic, they want GTA V Part III SiLS to sell with no distractions or interference. That makes me think roughly 3-9 months of no mention of future titles.

 

Anywhere between Q1 2022 and Q3 2022, is likely when they will announce the game.

 

Have Rockstar mastered absolute and stringent quality control, to protect against post-teaser production delays?

 

22 month gap for GTA V (2011-13) and 24 month gap for RDR2 (2016-18) is something they need to absolutely avoid repeating.

 

Although it never was official, finally speaking to someone about the original intended release date for GTA V, it was actually November 2012 as of November 2011 trailer #1, to be in time for holiday sales. They weren't confident about that date though.

 

They fell behind twice moving to Spring 2013 and then ultimately 17 September 2013. Max Payne 3 was a factor in this case.

 

Ditto for RDR 2: October 2017 as of October 2016 briefing+trailer.

 

Became Spring 2018 in 2017. Then ultimately October 2018.

 

I do believe they could announce this game in 2022 and have it ready for a late 2023 launch. Anything beyond that is inexcusable, because this two-year Gap via 11th hour delays becoming modus operandi shows a lack of discipline in committing to deadlines reliably.

 

At this point they're dealing with a solid 10 year gap by Fall 2023. There is no way this game is launching before 2023, unless they announce it December of 2021 and confidently release it in December 2022.

What we definitely do want is, the sooner PS5 version comes out, the sooner Rockstar can focus on announcing the rest of their future.

 

The first roadblock was RDR 2, now it's PS5's GTA V.III. and heaven forbid that game is delayed beyond H2 2021. Ideally an August 2021 release V on PS5 would allow for at soonest, announcement of the next Take Two title following 4 months of PS5 V release.

 

Best case scenario possible, to ensure 2022 release.🤞

I do think GTA 6 will be announced late next year and release in 2023, as Len Lfc does. Seriously, Len Lfc is so credible and always right that at times I’ve wondered if he has Rockstar connections lol
