Rockstar Patent Suggests GTA 6 Will Have This Next Gen Feature

After the discovery of a Rockstar patent, GTA 6 could see the return of a feature present in Red Dead Redemption 2.

New information has emerged regarding GTA 6 and what could be a patent for a feature in the upcoming game.

New information surfaced regarding a Take-Two Interactive patent from 2017. It has led some fans to speculate that this Rockstar patent is for GTA 6.

After all, Take-Two Interactive is the parent company of Rockstar Games. Therefore it's not a stretch to assume that this feature is for an upcoming Rockstar Game.

The feature in question is something we have seen before in Red Dead Redemption 2. RDR2 is a technological masterpiece, with fully developed AI and locations that change over time.

The patented feature in question is especially revealing when you think about it in relation to RDR2.

Rockstar Patent Next Gen Feature

The feature mentioned in the patent is present in Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar could be improving and revising this feature for GTA 6's release.

The feature involves the way in which locations grow and evolve in real-time, alongside the story and narrative progression.

This happened throughout RDR2, with locations like Valentine changing with the course of the story. This feature however was independent of the player's actions.

However, the patent itself doesn't mention a specific game, for obvious reasons. Interestingly, the content has led some fans to speculate that it is Rockstar's patent for GTA 6.

Could it be then that a revised and updated version of this feature could be coming to GTA 6? One Twitter user, Chi_Colossimo shows us the patent from 2017:

Although this could just be example text, the concept of slowly replacing objects in-game with more sophisticated variants, such as "new", "high-end", and "renovated" sounds a lot like a potential GTA 6 feature.

It's important to note, the Rockstar patent describes a system where "the player is attempting to improve the city they live in".

GTA's themes have often focused on working the player up from a lowly street thug to living comfortably at the top of the criminal underworld.

Furthermore, the patent mentions that these changes "indicate that the neighborhood is improving". Therefore, It could be that Rockstar plans to change the environment in-line with the player's progress.

GTA 6 - Rumors and Leaks

As of right now, Take-Two Interactive has not commented on the patent and they are very unlikely to. It's likely because they want to keep GTA 6 a closely guarded secret.

However, interestingly enough according to one insider's claims, GTA 6 is currently in development. So it's likely then that the patent could involve GTA 6.

Furthermore, Rockstar has potentially been teasing the next possible map location for GTA 6.

We are sure that Rockstar will want to improve their next game's map significantly, could the Rockstar patent point to this potential feature?

Red Dead Redemption 2's AI and systems are well developed and they truly helped to craft an immersive world that felt bustling with character and life.

When you compare the open-world systems in RDR2 to a game like Cyberpunk 2077, you start to see the strength of Rockstar's ability.

Finally, a GTA 6 leak has also revealed new details about the game's protagonist, and it might intrigue you.

We will continue to keep fans updated on any news or developments regarding Rockstar Games and GTA 6.
