We may finally have confirmation that Grand Theft Auto 6 is in the works, courtesy of the resume of a 3D artist who worked on, according to him, GTA 5 DLC and the upcoming GTA 6 itself.
The slip-up was first spotted by a user over on GTA Forums. Although it doesn’t given us much to go on regarding development progress, it could indicate at the very least that the next installment in Rockstar’s blockbuster franchise is on the way.
No matter how you look at it, a sequel to GTA5 is a no-brainer. It was one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful games of all time, and the franchise as a whole has been dominating sales charts since the series took to 3D with GTA 3. If you’ve been keeping an eye on our gaming charts coverage, it’s clear that GTA 5 is still selling incredibly well over five years after it was ported to current-gen consoles.
As always, though, it’s best to take leaks with a pinch of salt. Even the person who spotted the resume said, “there is no way a Rockstar employee would break NDA [non-disclosure agreement] like that,” and I’m inclined to agree. On the other hand, all mention of GTA 6 has been removed from the employee’s resume profile, which could very well be a consequence of Rockstar nipping things in the bud. Aside from a possible Red Dead Redemption 2 PC port, they don’t seem to have a whole lot on their plate right now.
What do you think? Are we getting GTA 6 any time soon, or is it going to be a next-gen release?
