Grand Theft Auto 6 Story Length

Dedicated Grand Theft Auto fans have patiently awaited news about GTA 6 from Rockstar Games. Recently, the developer unveiled the game’s inaugural trailer, sparking excitement and extensive discussions among fans. The trailer teased various aspects, including the return to Vice City, dual protagonists, the storyline, and much more.

In the trailer, the Vice City map appeared notably expansive compared to previous entries in the series, prompting speculation about the game’s overall duration. Many fans had hoped for a narrative length similar to Red Dead Redemption 2, but a recent report has indicated that GTA 6 may fall short of those expectations, leaving some fans less than thrilled.

To provide some context, Grand Theft Auto 5 typically takes players anywhere from 30 to 50 hours to complete the main story and side missions, with a completionist run extending to approximately 80 hours. In contrast, Red Dead Redemption 2 requires around 50 to 60 hours for the main story alone, while completing both the main story and side content can consume nearly 80 hours. A thorough completionist run can extend up to a staggering 180 hours to explore all that the game offers.

Anticipating a similar epic journey in GTA 6, fans were disappointed to learn from popular YouTuber LegacyKillaHD that the game’s story may be considerably shorter, possibly in the range of 35 to 40 hours. However, it’s important to note that this information is based on what he heard last year, and even he acknowledges that the game’s actual length is difficult to predict accurately.

While fans have had mixed reactions to this news, some view a shorter game positively, believing that lengthy titles can lead to burnout. They argue that 35 to 40 hours should suffice for the main story, eliminating the need for unnecessary length. Additionally, some speculate that Rockstar may prioritize quick engagement in the new GTA Online experience.

Notably, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar, hinted a few years ago that future games might be somewhat shorter at launch but could expand with post-launch support, potentially aligning with the reported story length for GTA 6.

As players eagerly await more information about GTA 6, Rockstar may provide additional details in 2024 as the game approaches its anticipated 2025 release. However, the developer is currently grappling with a leak that exposed GTA 5’s source code, canceled DLCs, confidential details about a potential Bully sequel, and employee information.
