Should GTA VI incorporate the Coronavirus?

Should GTA VI incorporate the Coronavirus in some way, shape or form? Maybe the character can get ill with a virus and have to go to hospital to get cured, or run to the mall to buy toilet paper, food supplies etc. The whole city can get taken over by the virus and have to deal with it for a certain time

yeah, why not? a possible mission will be "stay at your home for 3+ weeks ingame time." -> 5 Stars immediately after you step out your doorstep

That's just silly, all of this will no longer be relevant once the game actually releases.

Yeah i dont think they'd make it so that the game is set right now because 1. even though this is the biggest event in a while the story is probably built up enough that incorporating it into the game's present is probably gonna require a lotta rewrites and 2. the games are either set roughly at the same time that they're released OR a wildly different and specific time period and whatever form the virus situation takes by the time we get to release is probably going to be both extremely different from what it is now and also unpredictable

 

anyways if the game does take place in the "present" and there's virus elements in there I think it'll be in more an abstract form? like you hear about it secondhand on the news and even though the news is reporting on things happening where you are, you don't really see most of (if any) of that stuff firsthand, and im going to get it'll be either extremely post virus or just before things went really off the deep end, but that IS if they want to allude to it at all

Yes, it's a current event and the world of gta iv and v were all about the current events

No, Coronavirus would ruin the game. The game is about doing crimes around a city, not stay in quarantine

but you don't need to stay in quarantine. not even irl. It's not nearly as game changing as you think it is.

Yeah, but there would be less peoples in the streets, which would kinda sucks

maybe, who's to say how far before or after the outbreak the game would be?

You'll get 1 star wanted level for leaving the house, 2 stars for approaching other people. There will be a spook-o-meter similar timer, and if you stay around the other person for too long you are wasted. Mind you, you are already getting 1 star for approaching the other people in GTA 5.

 

The hidden packages are toilet rolls.

 

All vehicles comprise ambulances and refrigerator lorries.

 

This might work

I finally had to go out today and, I don't know what it's like in the rest of the country but, here in Minnesota, it looked like just another Tuesday. Now that I think about it, it was actually kind of busy for a weekday. Kinda felt more like just another Saturday.

 

Either way, I feel like post-covid America is going to be more interesting than during covid America is and I imagine it's too late to really delve into that in any sort of detail. Best to probably just leave it alone and say the game takes place in 2019. Maybe somewhere further down the road, depending on the impact.

 

More than GTA VI, though, I'm curious if Watch Dogs: Legion and its already dystopian view of the near-future is going to address it.

LOL, yeah and instead of pointing your gun at pedestrians to scare them off maybe they give you an option to sneeze that sends all the NPCs in the area running away.

Not this game. But if the aftermath of this whole situation leads to a rise in crime in general maybe a later gta.

Playing as a guy who gets into crime cause he was laid off due to the virus would be interesting not to mention the vast economic damage that would lead into a rise of street crimes. It's such a influential event that has affected the whole globe no way rockstar will ignore it.

They may mention it/have some tv show/internet websites about it but thats it. No need to make it some big element in the game. I think referencing such a big event does make sense though, just like they reference tons of relevant things in GTA IV and V

Instead of a pandemic and a lockdown on the entire country, have the virus contained in one apartment building or one hospital. Only one or two buildings would be quarantined. It would be like how SARS and MERS were contained quickly in the past. And say that it's a different new virus with a new name. And have people resembling these YouTubers (before the actual virus became officially a pandemic) try to warn the others about this virus before it gets spread to this country:

If they decide to go back to GTAs routes, and have the map unlock as you progress the story, the Coronavirus (or whatever name R* gives it) would be a very good reason to lock off certain areas. Hell, as it is places irl are being cordoned off like the islands in past GTA games.

Hopefully not,for several reasons.First is that it will probably no longer be relevant by the time the game is released,unless maybe if the game is released and set in 2020.Second is that the gameplay would suck because of it (why would anyone want the streets to be almost empty,most of the businesses closed,and to get a 1 star wanted level just be leaving their property).Third reason is that I don't want GTA to copy what's currently going on in real life,even without the coronavirus I would prefer a GTA set in the past so I can experience the time I remember from my childhood again or to experience a time before I was even born instead of having another contemporary setting and seeing the same things I see around me in real life,but I especially don't want to go through all this crap in GTA again,I have more than enough of it in real life.

Asking this dumb question is like asking if GTA 3 should of incorporated 9/11. When something f*cked up happens in life you wouldn't put it in a video game...

Задавать этот тупой вопрос - все равно что спрашивать, должна ли GTA 3 включать 9/11. Когда в жизни случается что-то плохое, вы не помещаете это в видеоигру ...

Another character inspiration for the next GTA (not for a main character):
