GTA 6 could be “70% done” according to Rockstar insider

Following reports that the next Grand Theft Auto game was still in “early development,” a reliable insider has rubbished those claims, instead stating that they’ve heard GTA 6 is up to 70% finished.

In a series of interviews Rockstar employees gave to Kotaku, it was revealed that the studio is apparently taking a different approach to the development of their next game, after the extreme crunch that plagued Red Dead Redemption 2.

The most notable point of the report for fans, however, was that the game was apparently still in “early development,” meaning the next GTA is likely years and years away.

Seven years after GTA 5, fans are becoming impatient for the next game in the series.

This came as a surprise to some, while others thought it realistic because of the heavy load Red Dead Redemption 2 would have put on the studio as a whole.

But, Rockstar is a massive developer with studios around the world, and according to reliable insider Tez2, he’s heard much differently about the progress on GTA 6.

He previously stated that he’s heard the game is actually around halfway complete, and has now expanded upon this claim. “[Jason Schreier] saying [GTA 6 is in early development] is likely a mistake,” Tez2 said on GTAForums. “I’m positive it already passed early stages of development.”

He continues, claiming he’s heard that the game is in fact “60% to 70% done from what I have heard.”

Realistically, no one knows exactly what stage the game is at other than the developers themselves, but Tez2 has a proven track record of reliable information about Rockstar over a number of years.

So far, neither Rockstar nor Take-Two (the game’s publisher) have confirmed what they are working on, so predictions at this stage are purely speculative.

With RDR2 released in October 2018, it’s logical that Rockstar have been hard at work on a new game since then, but some resources will also have been given over to both GTA Online and Red Dead Online, both of which still have large player bases.

GTA Online Black Friday update: Huge sales, Open Wheel bonuses, more

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
