Grand Theft Auto 6: 8 Insane Rumours We Hope Are True

Let's put those airports to better use.

Gta 6 VI

Grand Theft Auto 6 is the stuff of myth and legend at the moment, but that hasn't stopped fans from speculating feverishly and wishing it was coming sooner rather than later.

Eventually it will be, because those GTA Online updates won't tide players over forever, and once Rockstar Games has released Red Dead Redemption 2 into the wild, it's bound to turn its attention back to its hit crime series.

The developer probably has top men working on the game right now, beavering away in a secret studio somewhere, but you'll only get to see the fruits of their clandestine labours when Rockstar is good and ready.

Indeed, GTA 6's radio silence hasn't stopped the rumours from flooding in, as when a leak which ultimately turned out to be bogus seemingly confirmed the game's existence, the rumour mill spun up a storm.

Some of the reports that came in its wake were plausible while others were bonkers even by Saints Row standards, though fascinating to read nevertheless.

Sifting through the speculation to pick out the best bits, there are things in there that would potentially make GTA 6 even better than its mega-selling predecessor.

8. Every GTA City Included

Past Grand Theft Auto titles have taken players everywhere from gangster's paradise Vice City, to the crime-ridden underbelly of London in the swingin' '60s, but widespread reports suggest it about to go bigger.

Multiple news outlets have claimed GTA 6's world map could span every city from the series so far, taking players from Liberty City to San Andreas and beyond.

Imagine being able to jack a car in one city and hightale it to another, leaving the cops in your rearview mirror as you cross state lines with a smug look on your face.

It makes sense that Rockstar wants to go bigger with GTA 6, given that it will have the power of current-generation gaming hardware on its side, but creating an entire world would be a huge task for the development team.

GTA 5 featured multiple playable characters, so perhaps its sequel will take the same approach with one based in each of the series' main three cities, starting out on their home turf before travelling across country as their story threads intertwine.
