People keep giving Rockstar shit for how long they're taking on GTA 6, but I just don't get the hate.  Every game they make takes longer and longer to come out from the last one because they keep making their games bigger and better, and their refined polish upon release is nothing to scoff at (*cough Cyberpunk cough*).  And their track record is phenomenal.  You just know that when 6 does get released it will blow many minds.

I agree it's dumb to see 5 rerelease again and again, but I also don't believe that if we didn't get those rereleases that 6 would be coming out any faster.  If anything is slowing down the reveal of 6, I assume it's GTA Online.  Still Rockstar is huge, I have to imagine they have a very large team dedicated just to GTA 6 and another team that just focuses on Online and the 5 Rereleases (among other unrelated teams for other titles).

I would much rather wait years at a time and get perfection.

I started playing Red Dead again on Series X and it’s just as fun and immersive as it was the first time through.

Its because they’re milking gta v and online to death and they want them to focus on 6 instead of beating the 8 year old horse.

theres been no story dlc for 5 or for RDR2 either, because they only care about online.

i was chill to wait but because of the pushing of online it seems like 6 isn’t being worked on much or cared about.

I understand that's why people are upset.  But as I was saying, Rockstar is huge, they undeniably have had a large team quietly working away on GTA 6 for a long time while another team continues to work on 5 rereleases and Online.  I REALLY don't think 6 has been delayed in any major way despite how much 5/Online has indeed continued to be milked.

the tiny snippets from the inside suggest they've barely started on it if at all, I think that adds fuel to the concern.

You guys play GTA for the story?!

GTA V's story was amazing, one of my favourite video games from a story perspective, online however is just a fucking shambles full of kids buying shark cards to buy flying bikes. GTA 4 had two different story DLCs and they just didn't bother with V, instead focusing on an incredibly shallow online experience. 

Same goes for Red Dead, the first one had Undead Nightmare, and Red Dead 2 has all this amazing story and then... nothing. but they tacked on an even shallower online experience that actually could have been good but mostly ignore it to focus on the cash cow that is GTA Online.

Precisely. 

I'm not GTA's biggest fan (I actually prefer Bully, The Warriors, and Red Dead to the GTA franchise when it comes to Rockstar properties) but there's many reasons why people are bummed.

I couldn't give a shit about the remasters either, most remasters aren't worth the faff.

Rockstar confirmed over a year ago that they've been working away on GTA 6

Furthermore, they were under big scrutiny for the amount of crunch they put their workers on, with many reporting having worked 100 hour weeks on RDR2.  Undoubtedly that won't be happening again, so that will influence all the more how much longer the game will take to make.

Come on now, to think that Rockstar could churn out 3 GTA 5 level games in the same amount of time (or even remotely close amount of time) as 3 GTA 3 games is ridiculous. 

Hell look how the script alone of how 4 compares to 3:

And that's just the script, never mind all the extra time put in for the massive step up in graphics and detail. Might as well be asking why we don't get 3D Mario games at the same rate as the NES saw 2D Mario games. They're completely different beasts.

And again, compound all of that with how they're trying to avoid massive work weeks and have normal 40 hour weeks (less than half as long per week that employees worked on RDR2) and there is no mystery on why this game is gonna be awhile. If we get a new Rockstar game on the scale of GTA 5 or RDR2 every 5 years at this point, we should consider ourselves lucky.
