'Grand Theft Auto 6' Set In 1998, According To New Report

'Grand Theft Auto 6' Set In 1998, According To New Report

The next entry to the Grand Theft Auto series might take place in the 1990s according to this possible clue in the latest trailer for the enhanced edition of Grand Theft Auto V.


Revealed in the most recent Sony showcase, the reaction to the re-release of the extremely popular game for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X has not been... positive. The thing is, fans aren't that enthusiastic to head into Los Santos once more. It was originally released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, then arrived on the next generation of consoles and then leapt over to PC. Sure, there are a cluster of visual and technical improvements that it could benefit from, but the game already looks impressive in the present.

Moreover, we don't know what else Rockstar Games is packing into the re-release, but if that trailer is representative of the final product, it's not a lot of new stuff. I suppose the super speedy character switching is good but there hasn't been a rundown of everything that's coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions.

Here's a handy guide to everything that we know about the next Grand Theft Auto game, from its possible setting, characters and gameplay!



This is part of the reason why fans are preoccupied with digging out and dredging every reveal, announcement, patch, and even entire games for clues about Grand Theft Auto VI. YouTuber DANNYonPC reckons there was one hiding in plain sight in the trailer that most shrugged off, so it's worth another watch to spot what he's on about.


As the red sports car swerves on the freeway, you can see that the number plate reads "613AL890." DANNYonPC thinks that this is in fact a message from Rockstar Games saying "6 is a late '90s." I'm not wholly convinced. To be honest.

"I think it's a random plate and they're gonna keep selling GTAV," replied a fan. The company has sold more than 150 million units of the game and that number is only going to climb higher and higher with the launch of the version for the new generation. And, Grand Theft Auto Online is poised to support the future of Grand Theft Auto for as long as Rockstar Games requires it, and as it runs on the RAGE engine, any new entries would need to be compatible with Online and not vice versa.


Oh, well. We'll let you know if the constellations in the next trailer for Grand Theft Auto V spell out "DAFFY DUCK IS THE PROTAGONIST IN 6."
