One reply on “Rockstar confirms that they are working on the next Grand Theft Auto”

Thanks for the update…It’s funny though, the next closest thing to come close to the GTA series is the Red Dead series. Red Dead Redemption 2 is in my opinion the best story game of all time. But a consistent and consecutive SERIES of games…well GTA has it hands down. But I just find it funny how detailed and how well-written the Rockstar games are made. They are all masterpieces and I can’t wait to see what they do with GTA VI!!
