Rockstar could be testing GTA 6 missions & cars in GTA Online

Some GTA Online players, who are eagerly awaiting the release of the next game in the series, presumably GTA 6, believe Rockstar may actually be testing features for the new game, particularly around vehicles.

Of course, at this stage, this is all speculation, but players have noted two key features about the vehicles added to GTA Online that make them think it’s in preparation for GTA 6.

The theory goes that since around 2017, Rockstar has been making vehicles increasingly detailed, especially the interiors, as well as improving their physics and destructibility.

“If you check the interior of cars from 2017 until now, all of them are very detailed compared to cars from the beginning of the game,” one fan writes. “So this means vehicles are going to be a lot better than GTA 5.”

For a specific example, the GTA Online player said: “I’ve noticed that Lampadati Tigon (new car from the previous update) is also very destructive when you crash it. This might be applicable to other cars as well but I haven’t noticed it yet.”

The player also says that the newer vehicles added to GTA Online have much more detailed engines. Their theory is also supported by another speculative post on GTA Forums back in 2019, which reads:

“The first DLC I thought that the cars were seemingly higher quality in their details and interiors was Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit. That DLC was released in March of 2017, by that time I think GTA VI would have been in production to some extent, at least enough to know what types of cars they might want it to include.”

This player believes that “a lot of the relatively recent GTA Online DLC cars were created with GTA VI in mind.”

GTA 6 mission styles tested in GTA Online?

The Casino Heist is less ‘linear’ that missions found in GTA V single-player.

But, it’s not just cars that Rockstar could be testing out in GTA Online, in preparation for the next game. The theorist also believes that a more ‘non-linear’ mission style is being employed for GTA VI, and the Casino Heist in GTA Online could be the first example of this.

“The missions are also going to be a lot more nonlinear than GTA 5 and RDR2,” the player says. “Casino Heist is great evidence of it. There isn’t a ‘mission failed’ in the heist. If you alert the enemies, you can just shoot them down and continue the heist normally (if you or your teammates die then the mission will restart). I believe it was structured in this way to see our reaction and feedback of such missions.”

This certainly isn’t the first time that GTA Online players think they’ve spotted teasers and hints about a new Grand Theft Auto game either.

Rainbow Six: Siege’s next massive event, the Six November 2020 Major, is starting soon and the best teams from all four corners of the globe will duke it out to determine who is the cream of the crop in each region.

Rainbow Six: Siege is thrilling to play, but it’s even more intense to watch. The nature of the cat-and-mouse gameplay makes it an absolute spectacle, especially when you’re watching the best players and teams in the world.

The Six November 2020 Major is the next premier event in the professional scene. A stacked lineup of teams will be pitted against each other in separate regional divisions to determine who is the best.

If that’s not enough, it also has a global prize pool of $500,000 split across each region. The Six November 2020 Major will happen in four different stages throughout the upcoming weeks.

If you’re as excited to watch it as we are, here’s everything you need to know.

It’s been a while since the last live Rainbow Six: Siege event due to the pandemic.

Ubisoft will host all of the matches on their Twitch channel which can be found here. The schedule is organized in a way where there will only be one series on at any given time. That means you won’t have to have multiple tabs and streams open. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Six November 2020 Major teams and regions

The Rainbow Six: Siege November Major 2020 was originally supposed to take place in Europe. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, it was divided into an online event split across each region.

Unfortunately, that means there is no group stage. Instead, there will be four teams in Latin America, Europe, and North Americal, and six teams in Asia-Pacific.

Other than that, it will follow a traditional double-elimination format with best-of-three series and a best-of-five grand final. Here’s a list of all the teams in each region.
