Twitch star Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar explained how the “end could be near” on his GTA RP career after saying he’s now in full “YOLO” mode.

When Summit made the switch to GTA RP his viewership skyrocketed and it encouraged a lot of other streamers to get into it after seeing how fun it could be.

After playing it every day on nearly every stream, it’s no surprise it got tiring and Summit revealed that we might be close to the end of it on his channel.

Rockstar GamesGTA V has been Summit’s game of choice for quite some time now.

The sun is setting on RP

As Summit was entering his in-game apartment, he revealed that he was actually thinking about logging off for good.

“We’re kind of at a full fucking YOLO mode,” he said. “I feel like the end is near potentially for RP and I’m not totally sure yet, but it’s possible and I’m a little worried that I’m not gonna be able to get to do some cool shit I wanna do.”

With him saying this, it doesn’t mean GTA RP is gone for good, at least not right away. What it does mean is we could be seeing a different selection of games going forward.

Summit has been really leaning into variety streaming in 2019, starting off with Sea of Thieves then playing games like GTA V, CS:GO, Mordhau, just to name a few.

He made this choice after playing Fortnite Battle Royale for a while and becoming increasingly frustrated with it. He experienced a major burnout after that and he has since hopped around to games he enjoys playing.

This has made a sizable impact on his stream as you can tell he’s in an overall better mood and he hit his highest sub count ever while playing Sea of Thieves of all things.

As long as Summit continues to enjoy GTA RP, we can expect to see more of it but don’t expect him to stick around for long when he stops enjoying it.

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.
