GTA 6 theory suggests more cities will be added post-launch

A new Grand Theft Auto 6 theory is using comments made by Rockstar themselves to speculate that the franchise’s next installment could feature major cities of the past.

While Grand Theft Auto 6 doesn’t look like it will be announced soon, with GTA V being re-released on PlayStation 5, we have gotten some tidbits of info along the way.

Back in April, Kotaku obtained and reported on an email from Rockstar executive Jennifer Kolbe. The report outlined a plan to mitigate crunch and long working hours. It also stated that the next Grand Theft Auto game was being worked on and was in early development.

“One plan that management has laid out for the next game, a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series, is to start out with a moderately sized release (which, by Rockstar’s standards, would still be a large game) that is then expanded with regular updates over time, which may help mitigate stress and crunch,” they said.

The theory takes the fact that the new game is expanded with regular updates as a sign that new maps will be added.

“What is something they can expand? Hmm… A map,” wrote Redditor BigDPuffin. “This exactly lines with my theory. Initially, Rockstar will release the game with [Liberty City] and [Vice City]. Then every 2-3 years add a new city or even a state eventually creating the Grand Theft Auto.”

The reason this theory holds weight is because of comments Rockstar made themselves back in 2012.

Rockstar wants all GTA cities in one game

“Remember when long ago, a senior executive from Rockstar said that the company will eventually one day release a GTA with all the cities they’ve ever done?” BigDPuffin recalled.

The comments in question were by former Rockstar North lead Leslie Benzies. During an interview with Digital Trends, he said that the company would one day like to make a GTA game where players can go back to any of the older cities from the franchise.

“Of course at some point we would like to have one big world containing all our cities and let the player fly between them and revisit their favorite areas,” he said.

With the success of GTA Online, it seems likely that its evolution would see the addition of new cities – the big ones being Liberty and Vice City.

We’ll only know for sure once Rockstar themselves outline their plans for GTA Online on PlayStation 5, which will be free-to-play at launch.


Terrible GTA Online bug makes it impossible to use bunkers

GTA Online players are still having their bunker business missions ruined thanks to a bug that won’t let them enter their not-so-secret base. 

For the longest time, the best way to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online came through jobs and heists. Players would have to grind them out, over and over again, to be able to stack up cash.

Eventually, Rockstar Games brought businesses into the fold – allowing players to make money passively, before having to complete one delivery job at the end for an absolutely huge sum of money. 

The most lucrative of these jobs center around bunkers and the Gunrunning business, where, as the name suggests, you become an arms dealer. However, some players are struggling to run their businesses properly.

The problem isn’t an overly complicated one, instead, it’s just simple. Players can’t access the bunkers. No matter if they’re on foot or in a car, the yellow circle that you usually use to enter just won’t do anything. 

What that means is, players like Reddit user TheAlphamale82, are left to drive around in circles hoping that something might change. But, sadly, it doesn’t and you end up locked outside the bunker unless you want to restart the game.

However, not even a restart is a magic cure, as the problem can still persist in other lobbies. It really is a peculiar problem – and it is one that is affecting different players. 

[Bug/glitch] R* please fix this, this is getting really annoying. I am unable to resupply my bunker by stealing supplies and before this was recorded someone was having the same problem from GTAV

Others like Aberfergie and r3d-v3n0m noted that they have run into the issue as well, and that they’ve flagged a ticket with Rockstar Support. However, while the devs have supposedly said they’ll work on it, they haven’t found a fix. 

The winter update, which will bring the Cayo Perico heist to GTA Online is right around the corner, and that update should address some issues. Hopefully, the bunker problem is one of them.
