An insider claims that Rockstar’s engine for Grand Theft Auto 6 is ‘ahead of its time’ and its results are likely to be ‘incredible.’
Anticipation for the next game in the Grand Theft Auto franchise is unspeakably high. Rockstar is clearly not in a rush, however, with Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online‘s continued massive success. As such, it may be some time before any further details are shared about Grand Theft Auto 6 from Rockstar itself. Fans will have to rely on Grand Theft Auto 6 insiders for potential information, the latest of which has highly complimentary words for Rockstar’s GTA 6 engine.
Chris Klippel of Rockstar Mag, a French publication covering all things Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, shared some interesting perspective on Twitter just recently. Klippel says that they received feedback regarding Grand Theft Auto 6‘s engine, which they name RAGE9. This engine, they believe, is going to lead to something “incredible” for Grand Theft Auto 6. They say that RAGE9 is truly “an engine ahead of its time.”
If it wasn’t clear, Klippel isn’t claiming to have seen Grand Theft Auto 6, or even Rockstar’s updated RAGE engine. They’re claiming to have heard details about the engine that Rockstar is using for Grand Theft Auto 6 and how impressive it is. That leaves a lot of room for Klippel’s comments to be exaggerated or inaccurate, so Grand Theft Auto fans should take them with a grain of salt.
RAGE, Rockstar Advanced Game Engine, is known to be Rockstar’s engine for its in-house projects, including Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar iterates on the engine with every game released in small and large ways. Rockstar doesn’t refer to the RAGE engine with version numbers publicly. The versioning is mentioned somewhat often within the Rockstar community, however, whether it’s accurate or not.
Regardless of whether the version of RAGE is being used for Grand Theft Auto 6 is actually the ninth version of the engine or not, Klippel is saying that it’s a step forward from the version of RAGE used for Red Dead Redemption 2. That alone should convey the kind of visual step forward Klippel expects with the latest Rockstar engine update, considering how impressive Red Dead Redemption 2‘s visuals are.
Klippel’s reporting on the subject may or may not be accurate, but Rockstar fans already believe that Grand Theft Auto 6 will be an impressive visual step forward from previous Rockstar games. Rockstar always pushes for cutting-edge visuals in its games, after all. It’s just a matter of being patient and waiting until Rockstar finally unveils GTA 6 to the world.
Grand Theft Auto 6 is in development.
