Rumours have been swirling for a while now that Grand Theft Auto VI would see the series return to Vice City - a modern version of the fan-favourite 1980's installment that followed the release of GTA 3. As per a new video from Tom Henderson on YouTube - and confirmation by Jason Schreier - a bunch of details and a potential 2025 release window have been outlined.
First up the modern setting will support the current GTA Online model that Rockstar has found incredible success with, with this expanding to include Fortnite-style seasonal updates that could drastically change the weather and locations found across the map, including expanding the size with DLC locations. This 'evolving' map is said to be a key part of the game. Like GTA V the new title is also rumoured to feature multiple playable protagonists for the campaign, with one of them being female.
The release window being so far out is because it is being built for next-gen consoles and PC, in addition to the game being early in development. Word is that Rockstar's DLC plans might be there to release a smaller version of the city initially, and then expand that over time as to alleviate crunch and the studio's long development cycles.
Either way it sounds like we'll be waiting a while before we hear any official info on the inevitable GTA 6.
