New GTA 6 theories are swirling after the developers of L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files revealed on LinkinIn they’re gearing up for a new Rockstar Games project.

While a lot of attention has been back on GTA V, what with the recent announcement of the game being ported to PS5 in an enhanced version, that hasn’t stopped the Grand Theft Auto 6 hype.

“Having finished the critically well received L.A. Noire: The V.R. Case Files we are now gearing up for a new project,” Sydney-based Video Games Deluxe revealed in a post.

According to the developer, they’re the new game will be an “AAA open world title in VR for Rockstar.”

What’s interesting is that they straight up say it’s a AAA open world game, which lines up perfectly with a Grand Theft Auto title.

It’s also important to note that with each console leap, GTA V has seen some major upgrades to how the game is played. With the PS4/Xbox One port, the game added a first-person view. Could the PS5 port have some sort of VR feature down the line?

Further down in the post, the developers call this new project “ground breaking.” The choice of words made it unlikely that it is similar to their previous work where L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files was a remake of the original game.

Could GTA be getting VR treatment?

“We have a number of job openings in our Sydney studio including Senior Programmers, Engine Programmer, Designer and Animator,” the post continues. “If you are interested in one of these positions or would like two speak to someone who works here about VGD please get in touch.”

Sadly, the fact that the team is only just now preparing to develop the title makes it unlikely that we’ll know what they’re working on any time soon.

Regardless, this is certainly something to watch and be on the lookout for as we head into this next generation of consoles.

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
