According to a source, Rockstar Games was thinking about using Tokyo as a location for one of its games in the GTA series. The Grand Theft Auto V was located in Los Santos, in the southern San Andreas and the first location outside the US was London, where the players had missions set in the year 1969. When Rockstar has created GTA 3 and Vice City, the developers took a trip to Tokyo, in order to take pictures of the Japanese capital. Maybe they’ll use Tokyo as their next location for the GTA 6.
Back in 2003, Take-Two Interactive (Rockstar Games‘ parent company) has filed trademarks for three GTA locations: Tokyo, Bogota and Sin City, revealing their plans to make this series international, but the projects were interrupted because of the complicated Japanese metropolis’ road system. Moreover, the names of the series’ brands and car types would have been changed and the developers weren’t prepared for this.
As for the GTA 6, the game is in the preliminary stages of development, according to a TechRadar’s source, but the developers still haven’t determined the site for the next sequel. Te GTA 5 was released almost three years ago and the fans think it’s time for Rockstar to begin developing the next installment, but they’re sure that they won’t hear any concrete details about this game in the near future and they’re relying only on rumors.
No one knows exactly if the GTA 6 will be released in 2018 or in 2020, but most likely, Rockstar will wait until the next generation consoles PS 5 and Xbox Two will hit the markets, so that the game will be compatible with them. Other rumors suggest that actress Eva Mendes will use her voice for the female protagonist and it’s believed that her real-life partner, actor Ryan Gosling will be landing his voice, as well. Also, the developers might thing about bringing teleportation, so that the players could teleport themselves from a city to another. Until now, it was rumored that the GTA 6 will have a bigger map, consisting of all the maps from the US.
