The long and desperate wait of the fans is all set to end, with Rockstar Games ready to finally drop the trailer of their next instalment from the GTA franchise. As fans gear up to finally get a glimpse of the game they had been waiting for, there are a lot of other questions still unanswered.
On the occasion of their 25th anniversary, Rockstar Games recently revealed that they will release the very first trailer for their next GTA game in early December. Ever since then, the community has been buzzing with excitement and anticipation as fans continue to count days.
The hype and craze around the game are so great that the post of the trailer announcement date has already become the most like gaming tweet in history. That being said, for now, only the trailer release date has been confirmed. There are a host of other details that fans are still curious about
What is the story length of GTA 6?
One of the questions still looming about GTA 6 is how long will Rocstar’s new game be. Although there is no confirmation from Rockstar about the story, character or elements, that hasn’t stopped the community from drawing certain conclusions and speculating on certain details.
Regarding the story length of the new GTA title, unofficially named GTA 6, one can easily speculate a rough estimate based on the story lengths of the previous GTA games. Looking at the past five GTA games, one notices GTA 3, released in 2001, was approximately 15 hours in length. Gamers who took their time to complete it exploring various aspects took about 39.5 hours.
Next came GTA Vice City in 2022, which spanned about 18 hours in length 40.5 hours for completion. 2004’s GTA San Andreas was a really long one running about 30.5 hours in length and around 77 hours for 100% completion.
GTA 4, which was released in 2008, was shorter than San Andreas, with 27.5 hours in length, and required about 74 hours to complete. Lastly, the last GTA title, GTA 5 in 2013, ran for about 31.5 hours in length, needing around 83 hours to obtain 100% completion. So far, GTA 5 is the longest game in the GTA franchise.
When it comes to GTA 6, several fans have been demanding a gameplay of more than 100 hours. Besides, several leaks have also reported a gameplay of up to 400 hours in GTA 6. However, none of it is confirmed and concrete.
Looking at the past GTA games and their story length, fans can expect the GTA 6 story to be between 30-35 hours in length. Similarly, the completion time can be speculated to be at least a minimum of 83 hours since GTA 5’s completion time was that, and there’s no way Rockstar is dropping below that.
Additionally, considering the mass scale of GTA 6, it could be possible that Rockstar fulfils the demand of 100 hours of gameplay, but that’s still uncertain. Thus, given the above conditions, 85-100 hours of GTA 5 gameplay would be a reasonable expectation to have.
