Does GTA Online shutting down mean GTA6’s release is coming soon?
As bubbly games like Pokémon Snap & Animal Crossing develop bigger fanbases by the day, some of us fondly remember the time when GTA reigned supreme, bringing shock back to video games. The Los Santos & Vice Cities of the video game world have been put on hold after GTA5 dropped in 2013, but fans have kept the car-jacking fun alive with online game play.
However, Rockstar Games reports GTA Online is set to shut down in December, and fans are wondering if the drop means GTA6 will finally come to the hands of fans after eight long years. Now, GTA6 is trending on Twitter as fans try to answer the question as to whether parents will be mad about video games again with another GTA. Here’s what fans are saying about the possible GTA6 release.

Anyone who knows the ins & outs of GTA5 will get this tweet. When the GTA6 release comes, Trevor & Franklin better roll up to a finished building, not more scaffolding.

This pessimistic gamer doesn’t think the GTA6 release will come in their lifetime. Time to gear up for more waiting.

Finally, these tweets present the painful truth – GTA Online may be shutting down, but this doesn’t mean the GTA6 release is coming soon, and there’s no update on the release date. Unfortunately, we’re right where we left off with GTA5.
