Everytime Rockstar tweets something, the comments are flooded with questions like: "When is GTA VI coming? Give us GTA VI already. We want GTA VI. Stop milking GTA Online to Death, we need GTA VI" - though there are some Bully II fans too :).

Well, unfortunately that will continue to be the case for the next months or years until Rockstar is really ready to show what's next from the studio. Everyone wants GTA VI but we need to wait for the next few years to see a teaser. 

Today, we'll be discussing the future of Rockstar Games, what's to come and what to expect - including some of their new projects such as Bully 2, a Medieval game, Judas and more.

Standalone version of GTA Online

During the PlayStation 5 reveal, when we saw the Rockstar logo, we became extremely excited but the next moment, the majority of us got disappointed. GTA V will be expanded and enhanced for the next generation of consoles, i.e., PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. There will be a standalone version of GTA Online coming late 2021, we know it's going to be full of new content and more.

We do have expectations from the Single Player component of GTA V, the release of cancelled DLC and more. Make sure you give it a read, if not done already!

This standalone version will be free for PS5 players for the next three months, due to an exclusive deal between Rockstar and Sony (we have seen that in case of Red Dead Online as well). See the picture for more details:

Updates to Red Dead Online

Red Dead Online has so much potential but Rockstar is yet to realize the true potential of it. Fans of the online component are clamouring for an update because the game has not received any update for a very long time. This is odd but maybe Rockstar is planning for a big update behind the scenes. During an interview with VG247, lead world designer Scott Butchard and lead online production associate Katie Pica revealed why RDO receives fewer updates. 

“Red Dead for us is an opportunity to try something a bit different, try something new, and really let players have an experience of living in this 19th century America,” lead open world designer Scott Butchard tells . “Which for us, it’s definitely a different pace to what GTA offers. It’s a lot slower, it’s a lot more intimate, and we just really wanted to build up slowly bit for bit, so the player really feels progression. Whereas GTA is much more faster paced.”

Rockstar plans to keep adding to this experience, both building on those roles we’ve already been given and adding some more, along with new features, missions, and surprises, but all while ensuring there’s a clear throughline. “We don’t want the player to feel too overwhelmed too quickly,” lead online production associate Katie Pica explains. “So from their first day all the way to, say, the latest update, we want to make sure that there’s progression there, for every player.”

Well, they are taking a lot of time. Seven months are more than enough. Isn't it?! We hope this game will receive a long term support, just like GTA Online. Read some great articles on what to expect from Red Dead Online and more ideas to improve the game!


Grand Theft Auto VI

Yes, it's coming for sure. According to an article by Jason Schreier, the studio's next big project is early in development. That's none other than GTA VI. Given the rapid advancements in gaming technology, it is safe to assume that we'll get the game by 2024-25 at the very earliest. 

"One plan that management has laid out for the next game, a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series, is to start out with a moderately sized release (which, by Rockstar’s standards, would still be a large game) that is then expanded with regular updates over time, which may help mitigate stress and crunch." - The article reads.

From this, it is safe to assume that GTA VI will have frequent additions, rather than a complete package. It's a turning point in the series, where all the games are complete, the additions being in the online component only. Let's see if Rockstar plans to release single player DLCs for the game or not.
Bully

Bully 2

Bully 2 or however it will be called, is sure to be in development. Dan Houser has even expressed his desire to make a sequel. Maybe he has worked on the basic outline before he departed. Read more about it here.

Bully has been a cult classic and many fans have requested Rockstar Games to develop a sequel. The game will keep us entertained till GTA VI comes out! A new protagonist with a bunch of fun characters to interact with. So many ideas, so many possibilities!

Project Medieval & Judas

As in the previous articles, we've discussed a little bit about Project Medieval. This could be the next big IP from Rockstar. A medieval setting with a great story and a gorgeous open world, just like Red Dead Redemption 2. It would be so much fun!

Not to rule out Judas, which Take-2 Interactive renewed few weeks ago. This could be something a separate team must be working on. You never know what Rockstar may announces at any time!

Before we conclude, Take-2's earnings call is scheduled on August 3rd 4:30 PM EDT. You can convert your local time here. Thank me later :)

Let's just hope Take-2 announces something related to Rockstar, apart from units sold, obviously.
