Rockstar’s goal of outdoing itself in every game isn’t just about marketing, as the developer’s production history suggests. Lately, Red Dead Redemption 2 even garnered unusual praise from Zeit Online, who called it an opulent work of art. We defend a similar point of view in our test.
With Grand Theft Auto 6 officially confirmed, it should only be a matter of minutes before the internet literally goes up in flames. Even before its official confirmation, GTA 6 was already among the most anticipated games.
Leaks that have been circulating the web for years claiming to know more about the next installment in the gangster series also contribute to this. Our compact overview sums up what it’s all about. Feel free to check out the article to find out what it could be in GTA 6:
