With GTA V ranking as one of the most popular games globally and one of the best-selling franchises in video game history, with around 200 million copies sold, the long-awaited GTA 6 has finally been announced, with a release date set for 2025. Almost everyone is predicting it will be the greatest game yet. Details about the map, game mechanics, and other gameplay features have been released, skyrocketing expectations.

When junior Michael O’Mara was asked about it, he said, “Everything: crime, Grand Theft Auto, new cars, just everything in GTA V but better.”

Junior Bently Smith also wanted the same thing. ”Well, I expect the map to be bigger, the frame rates to be higher, the refresh rate to be higher, graphics better. Hopefully, the game plays a lot better. And yeah, hopefully, cars are cool too.”

Much of the fan base is excited to see the new cars and explore the new map, which is three times the size of the GTA V map. Junior Jackson Rentmeister shared his opinion about it.

“I expect the map to be somewhat similar to GTA V, but hopefully bigger with more things to do and then,” Rentmeister said. He also expects new fun heists.

With the game getting multiple delays because of hackers and other reasons, Rockstars (the makers of the GTA franchise) have the current date set to 2025.

Michael said, “It’s kinda dumb, and hackers are a part of the reason, I think.”

Well, players are also expecting better graphics as the game will be newer and with the new trailers they have shown. This game is expected to be the biggest game ever, beating games like Minecraft, Fortnite, Overwatch, and League of Legends. It’s expected to sell millions upon millions.

One reason people are getting the game is for the story. As GTA V fans may say, it is a master class, and expect an even better one with this one having a female and male protagonist.

The little things about the story are going to impact the story and game a lot, such as suntanning, weight, and food.

Michael also thinks that alligators will be in the game, which would make sense because we are in Miami, which helpfully brings some funny heists, free online play, and other things. With a map this big, people might wonder if there will be multiple story modes like in other games. Or maybe things are happening in Miami currently. This game has so much potential and could break the gaming world.

With sky-high expectations, GTA 6 is poised to revolutionize the gaming landscape with its advanced gameplay and cutting-edge graphics. After a 15-year wait, fans are eager to see if the game will surpass the lofty standards set by its predecessors. Will GTA 6 exceed our expectations and raise the bar even higher? As the gaming community buzzes with anticipation, one question remains: Will you be among those lining up to experience the next chapter in this iconic series?
