Should GTA VI incorporate the Coronavirus?

Well, Grand Theft Auto V already has social distancing... Try to stand near somebody for more than 3 seconds and you die.

Getting ill and having to go to the hospital would suck. I want to play as a criminal, not a covid victim. The game should either take place in the past (because I'm tired of the modern setting) or take place after the pandemic and have a few references to it, that's it.

The game could include it as Rockstars reasoning for a sort of great depression-like setting which justifies the players trip to the life of crime after the pandemic forced him and many others into being jobless and into life as a criminal but i'm not too sure about it being an active part of the game itself. A bit like how in GTA IV they used terrorism to justify locking the player out of exploring the full map they can use the pandemic to explain the harshness of life which pushes the main character into taking jobs he wouldn't even think about before the pandemic.

If you google corrupted blood world of warcraft you could see how it could be like and I would totally be on board for that, I think they would implement it like a gta online event though

Nobody will care.

 

 


Pathetic statement in hindsight, 3 months later almost 500,000 have died and almost 10 million cases, do you still not care? I think the whole world cares and will do so when GTA VI gets released too.

Surely Coronavirus has to be incorporated in GTA VI seeing as how long it's lasted for so far

Given that the satire itself has been reality since the pandemic started, I don't know what left they have to say. It's like the Trump culture Dan Houser laughed about a few years ago.

 

And don't call me Shirley

We do not know when GTA 6 will be released and when the pandemic is over, and we do not know when GTA 6 is set. A GTA 6 set in 2020/21 cannot ignore the pandemic, but if it's released in 2023 and set in the same year the game can refer to it as a matter of the past and ignore it for the most part, at least if it's hopefully gone by then.


I'd vote for a GTA 6 in the past, and when GTA 7 will be released we live in a whole new world car-wise so that a GTA 7 in the present then would be something new, battery cars, hydrogen cars and what else ...

I can see in a radio ad about this beer, that if you drink it you will die from a virus it contains.

 

A joke off the brand Corona beer.

Apparently, many people aren't staying indoors. Some of them even did this, which would go well with GTA.

 

 

I can see the main characters of GTA take advantage of this timing.

 

And the game could have people on YouTube warn about the coming pandemic at the beginning of the game.

Apparently the mods are in the process of enforcing a rule where we will all have to wear face masks when posting on the forum.

I would expect some kind of cheeky comment if it's set in modern times but I wouldn't want anything to in my face

Getting sick in game might not be that fun. However, I do think GTA IV can possibly make a reference to it as it’s an important event in 2020.

 

I believe there’s already a coronavirus reference in GTA Online now. In one of Gerald’s new contact missions, Gerald mentions an current economic downturn in the text message (mission invite description). It’s possibly a vague reference to coronavirus’s effects on the economy.

well... imagine the feature like hunger in San Andreas that decrease your health

 

You haven't use the sanitizer gel in a day, your health is being compromised. The screen gets a yellow tint because of fever, you start to feel dizzy and the camera moves, then you die.

In addition to the pandemic, now there are wildfires and more looting...

The game will either be set in the present time of when it comes out or a past time period. Unless they made the strange decision to set it only a couple of years in the past (if it's out in a couple of years) then I don't think it'll play a role in the storyline/around the city.

 

I expect it'll be referenced in a satirical way on the radio though, or it might come up in random conversations between characters or ped dialogue etc. Kind of like the terrorism references in IV.

 

Also I think it's likely they'd come up with their own virus to reference as a spoof rather than directly calling it coronavirus.

Even if the pandemic would be over in California by next year or the year after, there might be other problems that would still happen such as...

Developers will take too much times to create a coronavirus event and loaded it into a map. Not sure if it is necessary to do that.

The fun factor in incorporating this epidemic into the game could provide the content for Rockstar to create a minigame based on that, but it'll most likely not be included into anything relating to the Campaign / Story Mode. It wouldn't surprise me if R* does make some kind of easter egg reference to COVID, since its a major global event, after all.

COVID-19 is in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. So maybe it will be referenced in GTA VI lol
