Notable features the AAA title will offer

Rockstar is investing heavily in AI technology to offer players a more realistic gaming experience.

In GTA 6, cars are expected to feature AI-based navigation that allows them to drive more naturally, true to real-life motion physics, and adapt to different conditions, unlike the set pathways of vehicles in GTA 5.

The AI system will also grant players to interact with various NPCs, similar to the fan-favourite feature in Red Dead Redemption 2.

To improve the Online experience, the studio is reportedly developing a system that will seamlessly transition players between sessions based on their current virtual location, ensuring a more interactive gameplay experience. This system is designed to address uneven player distribution across the map, a common issue in the previous GTA installment.

One of the most exciting rumoured features of the upcoming action-adventure title is the ability to jump between multiple maps within the game. This groundbreaking development will include unique locations, shops, vehicles, and characters, though details remain scarce at this point.
