Rockstar Games' Dan Houser Thankful That GTA 6 Wasn't Released During President Trump's Term
The Grand Theft Auto 6 is one of the most awaited games which is why it comes to no surprise that tech enthusiasts and gamers are always on the lookout for new and interesting details about it. This time around, on a recent interview with GQ, Rockstar Games’ co-founder Dan Houser expressed his relief that GTA 6 wasn’t happening during Trump’s divided America.
Today in the US, topics like social issues, cultural stereotypes and politics can be very sensitive subjects to talk about. And considering Rockstar’s GTA series where it features offensive jokes, themes, and vice, it can put the company in an undesirable position due to today’s political environment.
According to Houser, they’re unsure on what to do with GTA 6, let alone how upset people would get with whatever they did. Right now, both the liberal progression and intense conservatism are very militant, and very angry, making it scary yet also strange at the same time because both seem occasionally to veer towards the absurd. Furthermore, because of this, it’s hard to satirize, and some stuff seen is straightforwardly beyond satire.
Whereas with Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2), he’s thankful for it. Given that the game takes place in another time and era, it has allowed them to approach it with a more creative approach.
So When Is GTA 6 Coming?
It’s very clear that Rockstar is indeed working on a successor to the GTA 5. The only problem is that we may have to wait for a while before it will be released.
Considering that Houser’s relief that the GTA 6 didn’t happen during Trump’s divided America, we can probably assume that the game could be released after Trump’s term as the president which will end on January 2021. This is of course excluding impeachment, resignation, and assassination.
However, given that Trump is a first-term president, he is eligible to run for reelection in 2020. And if he wins, he will remain as the president until 2025.
But of course, there are also other factors that need to be considered as well with GTA 6’s release date. And according to a report, we shouldn’t expect GTA 6 until 2023.
