There are many rumors about the location and release date of the upcoming GTA 6 but the most interesting one so far is that the next installment in the series will take place in London. Not only that, but in terms of release date, fans and players anticipate that it will happen sometime in 2018.
GTA 6 set in London?
There is absolutely no indication that GTA 6 will be set in London, but fans speculate that that will happen because many of the people involved in the development of the series are, in fact, British and that it would be a good opportunity for them to pay a tribute to their country.
Furthermore, Rockstar has already somewhat done it in the past, when it launched an expansion pack which was set in London for the very first game in the series. But the technology and graphics that was available then cannot be compared to the ones that exist today, so it would be nice to see a GTA based in London with the amazing graphics that we have today.
Apart from that, representatives of Rockstar have stated several times that the GTA series is not exclusive to American locations and culture.
In 2013, co-founder of Rockstar stated that they would love to set a GTA in the UK, but he’s not absolutely sure that that game will be a GTA one. He also said that there are many great stories that can be told in the UK and that there are great environments there but it just would not be a GTA game.
So there you have it, it’s possible that the GTA 6 will not be set in London after all.
Other rumors state that it’s very possible that the sixth installment in the series will feature the first ever female protagonist and that she will be voiced by actress Eva Mendes.
