In fact, the technologies of these games are used in “GTA V”: the car control system came from “Midnight Club 3” and the aiming system from “Max Payne 3”.
But more than 20 years ago, with the release of “GTA 3” for the PlayStation 2 in 2001, the series established itself as one of the most beloved games, and the following games, “GTA: Vice City”, “GTA”: San Andreas” (perhaps the most popular Anyone who owns a PS2) and “GTA 4” has been a critical and sales success.

According to “Variety” and the specialized site PC Gamer, over the weekend, a user posted a 3-GB file on a forum dedicated to the game, which included 90 video clips with pictures from “GTA 6.”

In “GTA V” we play in a version of San Andreas with a focus on the city of Los Santos.
Information contained in the “GTA 6” leak indicates that the new game city may once again be Vice City, a version inspired by the city of Miami in the United States.
The technologies and visual improvements that the new game will feature have not been announced. However, Take-Two has filed a patent for character animation technology that promises “highly realistic, dynamic animation” for characters, which will “move and interact realistically with their environments.”
