Rockstar Games has said close to nothing about the actual production that is being done on “Grand Theft Auto 6.” However, the game publisher’s president, Leslie Benzies, has somewhat confirmed that the company has started on the earlier stages of the title’s development.

“It comes from the idea first. Where it is going to be set is the first question,” he said in an interview with the Develop (via Mobile & Apps). “Then that defines the missions -- you’re doing different things in L.A. than in New York or Miami. The map and story get worked up together, and the story is a basic flow of how it works out so you can layer the mission in.”

Though Benzies did not specifically say that “Grand Theft Auto 6” ideas are being thrown around, his statement has been taken by various publications as an indication that Rockstar Games has begun on the game’s conception. This would not be unheard of in the industry, as Trusted Reviews reported that “Grand Theft Auto 5” ideas were going back and forth near the end of “Grand Theft Auto 4."

Previously, Rockstar Games admitted that it would be focusing first and foremost on “Grand Theft Auto 5,” which has been a large source of profit. However, while others have taken this to mean the next chapter of the GTA franchise would be put on a high shelf, it might mean the opposite. It could be that the game publisher is pushing all that it can from GTA 5 because “Grand Theft Auto 6” is just around the corner.

All items at this point are still under speculation since nothing has been said on record about the actual production of GTA 6. But if there is anything for certain, it is that Rockstar Games has no shortage of ideas for the future of one of its most successful franchises. “We’ve got about 45 years' worth of ideas we want to do,” Benzies said.
