- Grand Theft Auto fans will not be pleased to learn that their favorite game is still not ready.
- Constant changes made to the content have seriously delayed the release of the new title.
- Creators wanted to announce it back in 2019, but it will probably be ready sometime in 2022.
- Rockstar Games is also working on a remastered version of the first Red Dead Redemption.
We have some news for the die-hard fans of the Grand Theft Auto games, and it’s not really good. Apparently, GTA 6 is currently in development hell, so it won’t come out as soon as we all hoped.
Rockstar Games restarted its development right after Dan Houser left the company. Furthermore, Take-Two was originally planning to announce the game in 2020, but now we can’t know for sure when we will have new details.
Grand Theft Auto 6 leaks keep surfacing
UPDATE: If you were looking for any new tidbits about the upcoming Grand Theft Auto game, we got something interesting for you.
Apparently, GTA 6 is now codenamed Fireball and Rockstar Games is doing everything in its power to not leak any information on its new project.
The codename Fireball from Rockstar Games has been spotted in the resume of an actress called Natonia Monet and now it has been removed.
It seems that the character she will bring to life in the new Grand Theft Auto game will be called Tamara and we’re pretty sure everyone is more than curious about the matter.
Before Rockstar Games had the opportunity to reveal its latest accomplishments officially, a massive leak may have drawn the curtains back on what the game looks like in active development.
A known GTA Forums user has released over 90 gameplay clips from an alleged testing build of the highly anticipated open-world action-adventure game.
Also, as a side note, the recent major data breach at Uber was executed by the same party, according to the user’s other forum posts.
The above-mentioned person also states he is in possession of Grand Theft Auto 5 and 6 source code and assets, adding that they may leak even more data from these sources soon.
These clips are already circulating across social media, showing off the two main protagonists and the Vice City setting that were rumored before.
These posts have since been deleted by Rockstar and the person responsible has been apprehended in London and is now facing legal action for the leak.
The 90 minutes of footage, since made unavailable due to a copyright claim, was leaked to GTAForums on Sunday, as part of an alleged testing build.
Rockstar confirmed that the breach itself did not impact the development of the next installment of the popular series, but release dates and other information such as platform availability, have not been officially announced yet.
Remember that, since the footage is said to be from a test build, placeholder models, textures, text, debug messages from the engine, and temporary assets from GTA 5 can be seen a lot.
Now, if the footage is actually real, and taken from Rockstar servers as the hacker admits, we should see takedowns coming soon aimed at the original source and mirrors.
We are all really excited and eager to see what GTA 6 will look and feel like, so we are going to keep a close eye on this.
Due to these constant changes and obstacles, Rockstar changed the story and other game elements too many times since 2019.
And, from the looks of it, GTA 6 is the most chaotic project that the developers have ever engaged in, even said to be worse than the original Red Dead Redemption game.
Creating such a vast game is a real challenge, so we can all understand that such events can greatly set back development, much towards everyone’s disappointment.
As of right now, there is no official or rumored release date for Grand Theft Auto 6, and all we can do is hope that it will be ready by the end of 2022, maybe even early or mid-2023.
Red Dead Redemption Remastered is coming
Also, Rockstar is working on Red Dead Redemption Remastered. Although there is no information about the platforms this game will be available on, we’re guessing that it will be for PC, Xbox One and Series X/S, and Playstation 4&5.
But, again, this is just a hunch, as there is no official information about all the specifics.
This remaster will be similar to GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition. In other words, it won’t be a mere resolution increase remaster, and it will also have some new graphical features.
