Rockstar Games' next franchise installment, "Grand Theft Auto 6," is still far from being a real game but rumors are now starting to emerge. One of the recent speculations about the next title is its major changes in the gameplay.

One example of the major changes in "Grand Theft Auto 6" is the first-person perspective. As said on Droid Report, Rockstar Games has always used the third-person view on its franchise since "Grand Theft Auto 3." An FPS title could make the upcoming franchise installment more refreshing to its long-time followers since the iteration on the PlayStation 2 console.

Another rumor suggests Rockstar Games may take advantage the new-generation consoles' powerful components. If this rumor is in any way legit, then it could mean that "Grand Theft Auto 6" might not actually come on the Nintendo Switch. This is still unconfirmed, though.

In terms of release date, Rockstar Games has yet to release any official hints about the time window for "Grand Theft Auto 6." But there are reports saying the next installment would still come out, as said on Geek Reply. One possible timeframe suggests it could be released or unveiled sometime in 2020.

Meanwhile, other fans believe "Grand Theft Auto 6" could introduce a new character into the gameplay. Enstarz previously reported that a female playable character is likely to be included in the next installment. The reason why many believe this could happen is due to the lack of female lead in the franchise since "GTA 3," particularly the playable ones.

Lastly, the location that "Grand Theft Auto 6" would be set on. Word has it that San Andreas is one of the most likely places for the next installment. While Vice City is also another potential location that rumors have dropped, alongside London.

It is important to take note that all the details about "Grand Theft Auto 6" are based on rumors and speculations. That being said, fans are advised to take everything with a pinch of salt until Rockstar Games officially confirms it.
