Jason Schreier has just published a very extensive and interesting text on GTA 6. Bloomberg’s journalist confirms that a female heroine will appear in the production for the first time in history. The game can face big changes caused by the world around us.
Rockstar confirmed the work on the “new Grand Theft Auto”, and it was Jason Schreier in the pages of Bloomberg who presented an interesting text about the work of the studio, which has undergone major changes in recent years.
According to the journalist – GTA 5 was created in very unusual conditions, because the developers drank alcohol and were willing to go to strip clubs together. The game was developed during the great crunch, because only in this way could the team develop the adventure of three gangsters.
However, things have changed now, Rockstar has started a transformation that comes with a normal work schedule, hiring contractors for full-time jobs, and the removal of problematic managers.
The “new flexitime” policy allows employees to take immediate time off for each additional hour they work. And for the past four years, management has promised that excessive overtime will not be required for Grand Theft Auto VI, one of the most anticipated games by fans and investors in the world. “
GTA 6 without crunch and with the heroine
However, this is just the beginning of the changes, as the developers initially removed the transphobic jokes from the latest Grand Theft Auto V release and clear changes appeared during the production of GTA 6.
Grand Theft Auto 6 will offer a female heroine for the first time:
“Rockstar’s next game, Grand Theft Auto VI, will feature a playable female heroine for the first time, according to people familiar with the game.” A woman who is Latin will be one of the leading pair in a story inspired by Bonnie and Clyde’s bank robbers, the people said. “
Developers are also very careful not to attack marginalized groups by joking.
“Some employees say they are still trying to figure out how to develop games in this new version of Rockstar and are even wondering what Grand Theft Auto looks like in today’s environment. Plus, a few Rockstar employees have pointed out that you can’t really satirically describe America today – it is already a self-satire. “
GTA 6 is created under the code name “Project Americas” and the title is to offer the largest world in the history of the Grand Theft Auto series – the authors will provide much more interior locations compared to previous productions in the series. The early design of the position was to create a world based on large chunks of North and South America, but eventually the company pulled out of these plans and wants to offer a “fictional version of Miami and its surroundings.” However, the game will continue to grow – the developers want to regularly offer new missions and even new cities.
Developers are reportedly skeptical about the subject of the forecast for the premiere – the title, according to the publisher’s assumptions, would hit the market between April 1, 2023 and March 31, 2024 – as numerous changes to Rockstar affected the project. Internally, no release date has been set at the moment, but the developers expect that the work will continue for at least 2 more years.
Jason Schreier also confirmed that a new game mode was to appear in GTA Online, but it was shelved by the death of George Floyd – a variant called “Cops ‘n’ Crooks” was to divide players into “policemen and thieves”, but taking taking into account the events in the USA, it was decided to abandon the project.
