Rockstar Games continues to play coy on the future of “Grand Theft Auto 6” though the recent revelation of “Red Dead Redemption 2” can be taken as a positive sign. With “Red Dead Redemption” getting a sequel set for the Fall of 2017, could “GTA 6” follow?

To date, nothing has been made official with “Grand Theft Auto” gamers left with nothing but to hope for the best. As mentioned in a previous post a logical date for its release is 2020, if the sequence of sequels for their game lineup is to be followed.

However, there may be a concern among gamers in the form of the added content being released for “GTA 5”. Seeing how Rockstar has been focusing on the DLCs, do they have time to work on “Grand Theft Auto 6”?

Understandably, the gaming company has “lots” of time to spare. The target release date is about four years of so minor work on “Grand Theft Auto 6” could eventually pick up in the coming years. The wait may be long and some have assumed that "GTA 6" may never see the light of day.

These insinuations may be nothing more than words rendered out of frustration. "GTA 5" has somehow kept gamers busy but an entirely new game is still hoped for. So hearing word that “Grand Theft Auto 6” may have been killed off could be a bit harsh given that Rockstar has its schedule to follow.

A logical thing to look at right now is that Rockstar is simply keeping gamers a buy with the added content to GTA 5. They need to maintain some form of hype for the “Grand Theft Auto” series and likely surprise many for a game that has been overly popular.

The worst case scenario for “Grand Theft Auto 6” is to perhaps a postponement. Rockstar barely has a reason to cancel the game given its following, Neurogadget reported. This means that all the dishes being rendered out right now are perhaps nothing more but disappointed and impatient gamers.
