Fans are eagerly awaiting news about the future of the Grand Theft Auto series and are looking towards the next instalment for the series. GTAV was first released in 2013 and has still not received any story DLC; series fans are hoping that this is because Rockstar are focusing on the next game in the series.

Grand Theft Auto 6 has not been confirmed yet and the game is already surrounded by rumors suggesting possible features that can be expected in the game. A number of fans were disappointed that there was no playable female protagonist in GTAV despite the game having three playable character; there are hopes that GTA 6 will have a playable female character which would be a first for the Grand Theft Auto series. When referring to GTAV, Rockstar stated that a female character did not fit well but they have not completely rejected the idea for a future game.

The next game is expected to take place in the United States of America also however the exact location is debatable. Some fans are hoping that the map will be much larger than the one seen in GTAV and that it will include two cities this time. There are also some fans who would like to see the return of some older locations seen in the earlier games.

Grand Theft Auto games have typically followed a five-eight year gap between instalments; there are dedicated fans that have analysed the statistics and have concluded that the next instalment should be released by 2020. According to the analysts, the first potential year for release would be 2018 which fans may not be too happy about.

The long gap still leaves Rockstar with plenty of time to work on story DLC for GTAV which is something fans have been hoping for. The Grand Theft Auto team is slightly weaker now however due to the departure of one of the most influential team members; Leslie Benzies left the GTA team after the release of GTAV which may have been part of the reason why it took two years for the company to release the PC version of the game.

Rockstar should start talking about GTA 6 more towards the end of 2016 or during 2017 and hopefully fans will see the game being officially confirmed in 2018. Grand Theft Auto 6 should be officially released by 2020.
