Changes to two Take 2 owned websites have got Grand Theft Auto fans speculating yet again about the possibility of GTA 6 returning to Vice City when it finally launches. 

Throughout the early part of 2020, plenty of Grand Theft Auto fans assumed that Rockstar Games would be cooking up an announcement for GTA 6. Rumors and theories spread like wildfire as fans pointed to the Super Bowl reportedly hinting at something coming down the line as well as potential hints inside GTA Online.

Since then, it’s gone pretty quiet on the GTA 6 front. Some reports have claimed that it’s only early in development while some Rockstar insiders have countered that, making their own claims that the next title is almost ready to go. 

While Rockstar have remained totally silent on the matter, it appears as if Take 2 – their publishing company – are working on things in the background.

Past rumors have suggested GTA 6 will re-visit Vice City.

As of August 16, some fans have noted that two GTA related websites owned by Take 2 Interactive have recently had their ownership renewed. 

The two sites – one simply named gtavi.com and the other gtavicecityonline.com – don’t actually go anywhere. You can type them into your search bar but you’ll be hit with an error message. They don’t even reroute to GTA V websites like some other GTA 6-related websites do. 

Of course, the discovery will have some GTA fan believing that something is coming soon, however, that is unlikely to be the case.

Developers regularly update their ownership of websites, social media accounts, and more just to protect their own IP. It stops them from losing the name to somebody else and having to pay out a large fee when they actually want to use it. 

Plus, Rockstar have already committed themselves to updating both GTA V and GTA Online for the next-gen consoles. So, while further changes like these websites will pop up from time to time, the excruciating wait for GTA 6 rumbles on.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

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.
