It’s been almost 8 years since Grand Theft Auto 5’s release. The game joined the history books as one of the best games to be ever created. Fans all over the world loved the explorable world of San Andreas Rockstar brought in this game and it was definitely one huge leap in the GTA franchise. After its initial release, Rockstar has been working on enhancing the game on all platforms and made GTA online one of the biggest multiplayer games in the current times. The journey of the game still hasn’t stopped. A new enhanced version of it is coming to the new generation of consoles this 2021 with extra content and better visuals. It is undeniable that the game is among the greatest of all time and Rockstar releasing another GTA game is inevitable. However, it has been too long since the game came out and fans are desperately looking forward until Rockstart breaks the silence and make an announcement about their next project.
Fortunately, fans still have hope as there have been some leaks about the next GTA game over the past couple of years.

The next big leak happened around the same time where a leaker mentioned some serious information about the next GTA title’s setting, plot, characters, and storyline. After that, there was complete silence for over a year before some exciting news popped up, hinting Rockstar is actually working on a new game. This time Rockstar has patented a new AI system that is said to bring more advanced NPCs and interactions to video games.
