New evidence has emerged that GTA 6 might see the revival of Rockstar’s 2002 release, GTA: Vice City.
Grand Theft Auto VI is reportedly in the works but Rockstar Games has yet to even mention the sixth installment of its crime adventure series. Fans received what appears to be an unexpected update about Rockstar’s future plans for the franchise on Wednesday that may indicate a retro setting for GTA 6. Could we be looking at a full-on Vice City revival?
New evidence has emerged that GTA 6 might see the revival of Rockstar’s 2002 release, GTA: Vice City. This information comes via synthwave musician Pete Brian Rice, who that “music rights clearing people” affiliated with Rockstar had approached various synthwave artists for a “radio station.” (Most GTA games have a number of radio stations within the game that players can cycle through in their vehicles.) Rice’s tweet has since been deleted but GTA fans on Reddit snapped a screenshot of it before it was taken down.
Synthwave is a music genre that is predominately associated with films and video games of the 1980s, which is exactly when GTA 6 has been rumored to take place according to the most circulated rumors about the Rockstar’s eventual release. The original Vice City game had iconic retro music, and the pursuit of synthwave artist could be an indication that GTA 6 will head in a similar direction.
