The development of Grand Theft Auto 6 has been well underway for a while now, and fans began to hear what the next major Rockstar game might contain. The initial buzz has fans excited, but it also has them thinking about the setting of the sixth numbered game.
T002 Tyrant, a ResetEra forum user, asked Grand Theft Auto gamers when they want to see the new game set. The choices are past, present, future, and other. Several responses said their main reason for choosing the present day was because of the wide range of strange events occurring in today's world, many of which are suitable for slandering GTA's satire.
GTA 6 will reportedly have a female protagonist as part of a Bonnie and Clyde-inspired duo, though it was likely to be set in a fictionalized Miami in the 1980s. ResetEra contributor Vex envisions returning the game to its roots in the 1970s. Fellow forum member Jawmuncher wants the game rewritten in the other direction.
There is also a question about when Grand Theft Auto 6 will be released. Some experts predict a release date as early as 2023. For reference, fiscal year 2024 runs from April 1, 2023 through March 31, 2024. Thats being viewed as the potential launch window by many people.
