It’s been a long time since the release of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V. We’ve waited 10 years to move on, and the teaser for GTA VI asks us to give it just 2 more years. That’s fine. It looks beautiful, and I have so many questions about what’s happening.
After someone within Rockstar leaked the trailer prior to its scheduled release this Tuesday (12/5), the company decided to release it early. It looks like we’ve NPCs of various shapes and sizes (some fat, some muscular, some thin). Could this mark a return of being able to affect one’s appearance via eating / exercising, which was featured in GTA: San Andreas? The trailer seems to focus on Lucia, the series’ first female protagonist in Vice City, though it’s somewhat difficult to figure out the time period. She’s accompanied by Jason, her partner in crime. There are both modern and classic vehicles all around. The map itself seems to be pretty big, though we can’t get a notion of the full size just yet. Hopefully, the next trailer or more news will help with that.
Part of me is a bit skeptical, though. The gaming world went nuts with Cyberpunk 2077, and we saw what was needed to get that game to be completely optimized. Then again, with 2 years to work on it until release, Rockstar will iron out any bugs (we hope).
