"Grand Theft Auto 6" has been a favorite subject of numerous rumors and speculations for over a year now. With the lack of concrete details with regard to its development and release date, fans are starting to wonder whether the sixth installment will still come out. According to the latest report, game developer Rockstar Games is currently focusing on producing more fresh content for "GTA 5" or "GTA Online." However, many fans still believe that "GTA 6" will still arrive in the next few years with better gameplay and features than the previous installments.

The "GTA" franchise has certainly become an institution in the video gaming industry; however, the huge success of its current installment "GTA 5" or "GTA Online," which was released in 2013, made fans realized that the development of a new sequel might still be a long way to go. Nonetheless, game observers believe that the pressure from many players all over the world to make "Grand Theft Auto 6" might force Rockstar Games to produce the game title before decade ends.

According to a report by N4BB, if "Grand Theft Auto 6" were to happen, it will not have a London set up just like what the rumors have been suggesting. Dan Houser, a GTA writer, said that a U.K. set up is definitely a better idea compared to some of the other cities that were mentioned in several speculations. However, he admits that he doesn't see it happening. "I think for us, my gut feeling is, GTA London was cool for the time, but games were more limited then,"  Houser said. "These days I think we would love to set a game in the UK, set in London, whatever, but I don't know if it would be a GTA game."

The location map is definitely important when creating another "GTA" sequel; however, with no official details about the upcoming "Grand Theft Auto 6," fans can only speculate. Hopefully, Rockstar Games will make an official announcement soon. Stay tuned for more news and update about "GTA 6."
