GTA Metaverse? Rockstar Confirms 'GTA 6' Is In Active Production

Sunday February 6, 2022. 09:19 PM , from Slashdot
Rockstar Games recently acknowledged the 'unprecedented longevity' of Grand Theft Auto V (and its online component Grand Theft Auto Online) — and confirmed their working on the next new game for the series.

But Forbes argues 'The success of GTA Online itself may end up fundamentally changing the way Rockstar makes this series going forward...'

The success of Grand Theft Auto 5 has been both a blessing and a curse. A blessing for Rockstar, making zillions from the success of GTA Online, and for those deeply invested in that world which has continually gotten new expansions and additions. But a curse for those waiting for GTA 6, as Rockstar is now about to release GTA 5 across three different generations, cementing its massive lead as the best-selling game in history, endlessly delaying a true sequel. Now, however, Rockstar has finally stated the obvious, they are working on the next GTA game, which we're all calling GTA 6, but Rockstar stops short of saying number that outright....

I don't know if we can say for sure if this is going to be GTA 6 specifically, either the name or the concept.... I can imagine a 'new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series' being a massive game that is perhaps online from the start, including for its base campaign. And not to use the 'm' word, but there are less compelling metaverses than what GTA Online has become, and Rockstar may want to lean into that even further to try to get ahead of competition trying to make their own virtual worlds. As such, I could see a future that blends a traditional numbered GTA sequel and GTA Online, and who knows what that would be called ('GTA World?' 'GTA Infinite?'). Just saying, it may not be 'GTA 6,' exactly.
