GTA Creator Is Releasing Rival Open World Game

GTA Creator Is Releasing Rival Open World Game

Leslie Benzies worked on Grand Theft Auto III, GTA IV, GTA V, GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption

One of the creators of Grand Theft Auto Leslie Benzie is releasing a rival open world game which promises to be an absolute game-changer.

The new video game will be titled EVERYWHERE and up until now we didn't know a massive deal about it as it was first teased back in 2017.

However, the company responsible for the new game, Build A Rocket Boy, has released some up-to-date details and why gamers might be in for a treat.

EVERYWHERE is being described as a 'real-life Ready Player One', a reference to the book and movie where characters can jump into a sprawling digital world and do pretty much anything. 

As reported by Video Games Chronicle, a new investor document didn't mention EVERYWHERE by name, but described a project that sounded very much like it that Build A Rocket Boy was working on.

The report calls the game an 'open world AAA game with a multiplayer experience incorporating a multi-chapter epic narrative, user-generated content through a ‘virtual sandbox’ where players can create their own worlds, and deep social and streaming integrations'.

It's being claimed that the EVERYWHERE will feature a unique multiplayer experience.

Additionally, there will be a Roblox-style feature for players to 'create their own worlds', reports Daily Star.

Not to mention, a 'multi chapter epic narrative' will also be on the cards, along with a load of user-generated content.

Creator Leslie Benzie has worked on Grand Theft Auto III, GTA IV, GTA V, GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption.

And back in 2020, he claimed that the game would be unlike anything he'd ever worked on before.

He said: "We are fortunate to have great partners who share our vision and have invested in the studio to enable us to bring EVERYWHERE to life.

"We are also very excited at how the current trends in the video game industry, as well as the creativity and passion of the global gaming audience, are further aligning with our vision for EVERYWHERE.

"Over the past four years, we have been able to build a great team at Build A Rocket Boy, and the development of the game has progressed well.

"EVERYWHERE is now running on Unreal Engine.

"The engine’s tech advances over the last two years, and Epic Games’ roadmap provides us a great opportunity to create a game built on a foundation that will remain at the forefront of the industry for years to come."

Although the setting of the game is yet to be revealed, on the game's official website, a cryptic text reads: "In the near future, technology has brought humanity to the precipice of a world shifting change. 

"There are those who want to use this technology to advantage only themselves and those who want to use it to help all humankind.

"Will we look to the stars? Or stare only at our feet? Will we be inspired? Or live in fear?"

There is currently no official release date.
