GThanks to a recent report from Bloombergthe flames around the long-awaited new installment of the franchise Grand Theft Auto they revived. But, shortly after information about the new protagonist became public, more details reached us regarding the sixth entry in the main line of GTA games.

Next, we tell you everything we know about this game, still in development:

In which city will GTA VI take place?

Originally, the project was extremely ambitious. under the code name Project Americas, parts of Central America, as well as South America, were planned to be included on the map. However, this first idea was discarded and, instead, it was decided to keep everything in the United States, specifically, in the fictional city Vice Cityinspired in MiamiFlorida, a site that has not been fully revisited since GTA Vice City. In addition to the city, the suburbs and area around the metropolis will be included on the map.

How big will the GTA VI map be?

Although Project Americas supposes a great magnitude when it comes to the map, GTA VI not far behind. On this occasion, rock star speaks of a significant increase in the number of interiors, which will turn a city of inaccessible buildings into a space with greater freedom of movement. According to the report, it will be bigger than maps from previous GTAs.

Not only that, but they are considering updating the game constantly, with more cities. This will be done after launch, to avoid the crunch labor in the months close to the date of departure for sale. In this way, an already large map could become even more massive. And from what we’ve seen over the last decade, Rockstar keeps its games going with constant, substantial updates.

When will GTA VI come out?

The real million dollar question. According to the Bloomberg source, the game will be out during fiscal year 2024 from take-two, the parent company of Rockstar Games. This means that a market launch window is planned that goes from April 2023 to March 2024.

GTA VI stop having black humor and offensive jokes?

With respect to that, Rockstar assures that there has been a change within the company. In large part, it sought to “transform a college fraternity house into an adult company.” Significant changes to the standard of living of workers, to reduce work stress, practices against workers, and possible situations of harassment, as other studies have faced. This, of course, also permeates games. The removal of transphobic jokes in more recent versions of GTA was only the beginning, as Rockstar is now not aiming to “knock down”. In other words, their intention is not to make fun of vulnerable groups or to perpetuate stereotypes.

This, of course, does not mean that it changes the tone or the intention of the humor that made the games of the franchise great. GTA is, and always has been, a scathing satire on American culture, consumerism, the media, politics, celebrities and the cult of personality. This, of course, framed in a game about criminal activities. And that, in essence, remain GTA.

Another instance where this change is visible is in an update to GTA Online that had to be cancelled. This mode was going to be Cops and Robbers, based on the concept of the original GTA. However, it had to be canned, due to the events surrounding the arrest and murder of george floyd, which brought racial and policing issues into the headlines, into people’s consciousness, and into public scrutiny. Maybe it wasn’t the best time for it to be played as policemen shooting robbers.
