While a "GTA 6" release date is not yet confirmed by developer Rockstar Games, fans of the franchise are quite convinced that it is only a matter of time. With the success that the current "GTA 5" is enjoying, it makes perfect business sense to go for a "Grand Theft Auto 6" release to cash in on the popularity of the franchise.

Will VR Be Incorporated Into The 'GTA 6' Gameplay?

One of the most interesting development in the gaming industry today is the introduction of VR technology. While the technology is still in its infancy, VR is bound to catch up and may even establish itself as a standard in future titles. As such, one can hear of talks of newer titles nowadays offering some support for VR and it is hard to imagine for the upcoming "Grand Theft Auto 6" not to follow suit.

Simply put, Rockstar Games cannot afford to be left out by its competition. With the latest racing title from Polyphonic Digital "Gran Turismo Sport" already advertising its superior graphics and VR compatibility, Rockstar will be left out if it does not adopt to the changing gaming landscape. As such, a VR mode is highly anticipated by gamers when the "Grand Theft Auto 6" release date eventually arrives, as well as compatibility and optimization for the next gen consoles that may exist by then.

'GTA 6' Map Speculations - Next Title To Feature London?

Aside from the expected higher resolution graphics and VR compatibility, many gamers are also speculating on the likely location of the "Grand Theft Auto 6" map. Apparently, many believe that the upcoming title would be veering away from the traditional American setting and will venture across the Atlantic in search for the perfect setting.

Some gamers speculate that "Grand Theft Auto 6" map may feature a European city this time. Many cities were offered such as Sicily in Italy but one of the highly-favored European location is London, with its perfect blend of old and new architecture. Of course these are all speculation for now as Rockstar is yet to reveal any details about the upcoming racing title.

When Can Fans Expect The 'Grand Theft Auto 6' Release Date To Arrive?

But for now, it all boils down to one important questions for gamers. When will the "Grand Theft Auto 6" release date arrive? Speculations vary but according to the Nuerogadget report, the next title from Rockstar Games may be arriving by 2018.
