'Grand Theft Auto VI' Might Be Heading Back To Vice City

Ok, get ready to feel really old (or maybe really young). Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is 16 years old.

It doesn't look or feel that old though. When it came out it was the biggest and best game on the planet. On top of being really fun it was also absolutely beautiful. Here's a reminder:

Through open world freedom and amazing design - and let's not forget the tunes - it became one of the most important games of the generation.

It starred Ray Liotta as Tommy Vercetti, trying to make his way through Vice City's underground crime scene after being released from prison - the location is basically an exaggerated version of Miami in the 1980s.

Well, we've not had a GTA game since 2013, but now it has been hinted that Grand Theft Auto VI could be in the pipeline, and it might return to Vice City.

Popular YouTube channel The Know has suggested that the next game could be out in about three or four years - so around 2021 or 2022 - and will be set between Vice City and South America.

These guys have got previous for this sort of revelation too. They predicted Dark Souls III correctly before that happened.

However, Rockstar Games, who make the GTA series, are a bit harder to predict, since they very rarely allow leaks. A lot of what goes on inside Rockstar HQ is top secret and never gets out until the exact moment that they want it to.

That won't stop speculation, of course. There is also quite a bit of chat about the game potentially featuring a female lead character - GTA V had a whole load of different playable characters, so that actually might happen.

One game that is definitely going to make it out of Rockstar Games this year will be Red Dead Redemption II which drops later this year.

If you aren't familiar with Red Dead, just think GTA with cowboys (although in truth it was so much more than that). If you can't get excited about that then you've got no hope.

It's due in October this year. A Rockstar statement said: "We are excited to announce Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on 26 October 2018. We apologise to everyone disappointed by this delay. While we'd hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish.

"We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it.

"We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks."

Get that one out of the way then get stuck into the next GTA game, please guys.
