Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek shared his predictions on when fans can expect Grand Theft Auto VI while comparing it to an ambitious Kickstarter project.
Fans have been looking forward to the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto series for years now and shroud believes it will be coming in the next couple of years.
Shroud was reminded of his anticipation after browsing through a Kickstarter project called RAW, an open world MMORP similar to the popular GTA RP that he deemed to be too ambitious. Despite this, he thinks Rockstar could potentially take a chance on a game like this.
“They could try,” he said. “You’ve got to take some sacrifices when you’re making a game like that. Let’s say Rockstar tried to do it, they would want to do it in the way of intense graphics which isn’t possible. Now, if you make it look like Roblox, sure you can do anything.”
Shroud argues a game like RAW isn’t possible right now or else it would already exist, but it doesn’t sound like Rockstar is taking it upon themselves to make it as they’re surely hard at work on GTA 6.
Shroud believes we’re still a little while out from getting the next installment in the storied franchise.
“We probably won’t see another GTA for another two more years or something, at least,” he explained.
He mentions that Rockstar also created Red Dead Redemption 2, which may have led to some delays in the next GTA.
Shroud, too, seems to believe in that sort of timeframe, predicting that we will see a new game from Rockstar in the next two or three years.
At the time of writing, it’s impossible to speculate on whether or not Rockstar is aiming to produce a game more focused around roleplaying for GTA 6 – with the boom of GTA RP on Twitch in 2019 – but if they do, shroud doubts the developers would be able to reach the expectations for that type of experience at this moment in time.
Fans of GTA, and more generally of roleplaying games, will be waiting eagerly for the launch of both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett in the future to see if such an immersive project could be rolled out across all platforms any time soon.
