Actor Tim Neff’s motion capture section of his resume has been updated to show that he’s recently worked on an interesting project titled Grand Theft Auto 6. The resume, which can be found at Breakdown Express, a website dedicated to hosting resumes and pictures with access to big name Hollywood studios, also states that the actor has worked on Red Dead Redemption 2. Ultimately though, it’s the legitimacy of the website that gives weight to the claim being true.
Although this doesn’t give us much of a clue in terms of release date or story details, it does however, more or less confirm that production is underway. How far underway remains a mystery, but with the release date for Red Dead Redemption 2 scheduled for sometime in 2018, it would seem a GTA release would likely be at least 2 years after that. But even with the potential of another 3 year wait, it’s exciting to know that the next installment of the series is in the works.
After the record breaking success of GTA V which’s currently the fastest selling video game of all time, earning an amazing $1 billion within 24 hours, the next game in the series has a lot to live up to. This has led to the rumour mill going into overdrive, leading fans to speculate about everything from locations to storylines and try to figure how Rockstar can trump the fifth entry.
Perhaps one of the more bizarre rumours flying around from an unknown source is that Rockstar plan to let the player loose with the WHOLE of the USA as their playground. Ubisoft’s The Crew managed something similar by shrinking the US and making it available to travel across with a 1.5 hour real-time drive from one coast to the other. It’s hard to see how this would work to benefit a GTA game though, given that Rockstar do such a good job of making a dense world that feels almost as alive and manic as their real-life counterparts.
Speculation aside, it genuinely looks like we have solid proof that GTA 6 is on its way, even if we don’t think it’ll be here for quite a while yet.
