By the end of summer six years have passed since the release of GTA V, the most profitable entertainment product in history, and a year after the Red Dead Redemption 2 market debut. With these two events in March, and with the proximity of a new generation of consoles are not few who wonder about the entity of the next game of Rockstar. Will it be GTA 6? The title is already in development according to a leak, but it has not been until that thanks to a rumor we have been able to know its first supposed details.
According to a thread published on Reddit, a user who claims to have contacts in several US media outlets as well as in the company itself, the subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive would work on this sixth installment of the Grand Theft Auto saga under the codename of Project Americas, a christening that matches the one provided for other information that emerged in mid-2018.
The video game would be set in two locations, Miami and a city inspired by Rio de Janeiro, in the 70s and 80s. In this sense, Project Americas would be for decades, between the 70s and 80s, in two different locations: Vice City (Miami) and an inspired city inspired by Rio de Janeiro. They would not be the only cities available in the adventure, since Rockstar’s intention would also be to locate some of their missions in Liberty City and other settings as a gigantic prison.
The protagonist? A certain Ricardo, that the users have not been slow in associating Ricardo Diaz (Two Farlopa), an old acquaintance of GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories whose disembarkation in the city, precisely, coincides with the years in which the history passes of this supposed GTA 6. A story that could tell the origins of the character and his relationship with important drug lords, among them a young Martin Madrazo is mentioned, and that he will drink a lot of Narcos. In fact, it is emphasized that many of his characters will speak in their native language, such as Spanish. All this would be under consideration by a soundtrack from the era that is still under consideration.
The construction of a drug empire will be a central point of the argument as well as its mechanics, to which they have devoted a lot of time according to this information. The protagonist, likewise, would have a similar role to that of the horse in Red Dead Redemption 2. In addition, an array system limited to Max Payne 3 is listed. Finally, there is also interest in making this much more ambitious delivery in the climatological plane.
The project would have started its gestation in 2012, shortly before the arrival of GTA V and, with several interruptions along the way, it would have arrived so far. That said the production still has enough time, so much that it is completely finished with its possible release on PS4 and Xbox One. Anyway, it is good to remember that all this information is not signed by people of recognized accuracy, with what it is convenient to take all of the exposed with the greatest caution.
