The highly anticipated gaming title “Grand Theft Auto 6,” the next installment in the most successful Rockstar Games’ “Grand Theft Auto” franchise, will feature Ryan Gosling.
Rumors have it that the star will be featured in the upcoming “GTA 6” title as the lead protagonist. The game title will most likely be similar to “GTA: Vice City” that had big-name actors playing important roles.
“GTA 6” is even speculated to take place in the 80’s in the Vice City again, as the lead protagonist role is reportedly tailor-made for Gosling, with fans believing the star’s role in the movie Drive and the location would complement well, according to Christian Today.
The long-rumored game title is also said to be connected with “Red Dead Redemption,” as the protagonist will allegedly be the descendant of the “Red Dead Redemption” lead character – John Marston.
The next installment has two main rumored locations – America and Middle East. According to various reports, Rockstar Games was mapping the whole of United States for the “GTA 6” title. If it turns true, the game title will be the biggest game yet from the developer. In case of Middle East, speculations are that the game can have terrorist as the main antagonists and be set in Middle East.
Dan Houser, co-founder of Rockstar Games, has ruled out the option of UK, saying that if there’s a game set in the UK, it won’t be a “GTA” game, though the team has mulled over the idea years ago, Crossmap reported.
The “GTA 5” sequel is also expected to have a female character included, as House said earlier that “In the future, could we do a game with a lead female character? Of course. We just haven’t found the right game for it yet, but it’s one of the things we always think about,” DesignTrend quoted.
The much awaited “GTA 6” release date is speculated to be in the year 2018. However, these reports need to be taken with a pinch of salt as Rockstar Games has not yet officially confirmed even the “GTA 6” gaming title.
