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.

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.
