Grand Theft Auto 6 might just be the most wanted game in history. GTA 5 is one of the best selling games of all time, that generated a whopping 1 billion dollars on it's launch date, so what's in store with GTA 6? As of now, there’s no official information about the GTA 6, but just like any other major title, speculation and rumors are starting to pop up. With E3 2017 right around the corner, there’s a possibility Rockstar will announce the development of GTA 6 alongside Red Dead Redemption 2, which was teased and revealed just a few months back. It's expected that more information will come at E3 with Red Dead Redemption 2 and we shouldn't hold back on seeing at least a teaser trailer for GTA 6 too. For now though, the rumors will have to continue and we'll have to speculate, so here’s 5 places where GTA 6 could be taking place!
Australia could be the perfect setting for the next GTA 6, because the perfect mixture of beaches, cities, and baron landscapes fits a typical GTA title. Who knows, maybe instead of running into thugs or bikers, the antagonist in GTA 6 is actually deadly spiders and dehydration... Yeah, I know it's a pretty out-there idea. Rumors have continued to pour in regarding Rockstar's budget for GTA 6 and apparently a lot of focus will be spent on VR. So who knows, things such as a virtual Coral Reef could be possible and would go over well for both tech-enthusiasts and casual gamers.
One of the most popular rumors floating around about GTA 6 is that the game will be taking place in Tokyo, Japan, which is another great option. Tokyo is one of the most densely populated cities in the world and would make for a great setting in GTA 6. It definitely will appeal to a lot of gamers because of the massive high skyscrapers and tight roads, that would be great for custom races. GTA 6 in Tokyo something to look forward too.
Having GTA 6 take place in the heart of the cartel could definitely put an interesting twist on the franchise. Drugs and violence are no strangers to the Grand Theft Auto Franchise, so maybe having an environment that is known for drug trading and the cartel would fit quite well. The vulgarity and crudeness involved in the GTA series could match somewhat with the brutality that comes out of Juarez. It’d definitely be an interesting twist on a current world issue, if it were to be the focus of Grand Theft Auto 6.
An Apocalyptic World
This is likely to be the most unrealistic setting, but would be an interesting one, but could Rockstar take GTA to a place it’s never been before? Imagine Grand Theft Auto 6’s opening cut scene focusing on a character that’s just been exposed to the apocalyptic world for the first time; not knowing what lies outside, what enemies await, and what surprises hide behind every corner. It’d be about as far from an original Grand Theft Auto game as you can get, but who knows, maybe thinking outside the box will create one of the most whacky video games ever.
Grant Theft Auto is no stranger to zombies, after all, we all remember some of the crazy zombie cheats from previous titles. GTA 6 set in an apocalyptic world, we think, would be a great twist for the franchise. Rockstar has always balanced out GTA games well, ensuring that they release a game every half a decade or so. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that another standard GTA game would go down well. Maybe throwing GTA 6 into a setting we've never seen before in the GTA franchise would go down a treat.
Las Vegas, Nevada
I encourage anyone reading this to name a more Grand Theft Auto like-city than Las Vegas. Crazy lights, absurd parties, gambling, hookers, and sketchy motels that smell like death. Seriously, Las Vegas would be the perfect location for GTA 6. Sin City has everything that you could ever ask for in a GTA game: A popular downtown strip perfect for rolling with your crew, various clubs, casinos, and bowling alleys for you and your cousin. Not to mention the nonstop gambling, strippers, and heist opportunities.
