After loving GTA V for almost three years now, I've finally hung up my hat and walked away from Rockstar's astounding achievement. My body is totally ready for Red Dead Redemption 2 and with a little bit of luck, this game could be Rockstar's secret game to be revealed in 2015!
But after looking at the glory of GTA V, you begin to wonder how Rockstar are going to improve upon this gem of a game. There's only so much space that the PS4 and XBOX One consoles can offer, and there's no way the company is going to make their next GTA title a PC exclusive. So is it to much to ask to have an even bigger map, but also allow us to travel to the famous locations of GTA's past on the release date of GTA 6?
GTA 6 - Travelling to Vice City & Liberty City On Release Date
I'm not someone that wants to see loading screens return to GTA. In fact, Rockstar having been getting rid of them all together - look at the glory of Max Payne 3! But I would be completely willing to sit through this minor annoyance if it allowed me to travel from the likes of Los Santos all the way to Liberty City. Eventually, Rockstar will release a GTA title that will allow us to travel to various cities, and maybe even cities from the series' past.
The question is whether GTA VI could be that game. If Red Dead Redemption 2 is next in the pipeline, and we assume that they've been working on other games over the past 3 years, GTA 6 won't be getting a release date for some time. We may have the likes of Bully 2 and L.A. Noire 2 on the way folks, perhaps we'll get back to having a Rockstar game a year again before we see the next GTA title! That gives them plenty of time to make this work, right?!
Which City Would You Go to in GTA VI?
If Rockstar introduce this feature in GTA 6, I think it's quite likely that the second city would be the glorious Vice City. There are times where I still feel like Vice City is a better game than GTA V - but maybe that's just the nostalgia talking. Revisiting this city outside of the 80s would be seriously weird, there's no doubting that. But there's great potential for Rockstar to play with the medium by referencing the history of the GTA franchise this directly.
Whether the option to travel to these cities will be available through flying a plane or simply boarding one, that will be down to the hardware. Though we may still be getting a GTA 6 that encompasses all of the USA. But what do you think GTA fans? Would you like to travel to Liberty City and Vice City on the release date of GTA VI? Do you think it would make loading screens return? Let us know in the comments!
