GTA 6 is supposed to set new standards graphically. And even now, a fan impressively shows how beautiful it could look above the clouds of Vice City.
Hamburg – When you think of GTA, the first thing that comes to mind for many people is probably fast cars. But some modes of transport also take players to the skies. A fan has now demonstrated that a plane ride in GTA 6 could be particularly nice. Because Rockstar Games has already proven in Read Dead Redemption 2 that they know their way around heavenly graphics.

GTA 6 on cloud 7: Fan impressively shows how beautiful airy jaunts can be
Here's what to see: According to an insider, GTA 6 is supposed to offer photorealism. And already in Read Dead Redemption 2, the engine from Rockstar Games is more than impressive. A fan has therefore gone into a kind of "developer mode" of the game and impressively shows what the game, which was released in 2018, has to offer. In doing so, he takes a closer look at the clouds of the action-adventure.
What is an engine?
The term "engine" is, so to speak, the basic structure of a game. Game physics, graphics, and logic within the game are determined using the engine. The Unity Engine or the Unreal Engine is often used in developments. However, Rockstar Games develops its own games with the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine – RAGE for short – and is supposed to access the ninth version of it with GTA 6. RAGE 9 is said to be "ahead of its time" and provide stunning visuals.
On Reddit, the user Rtzx1 shows his little sightseeing flight to the community. He himself would like the graphics in GTA 6 to be just as detailed. "I can't wait to fly through clouds like this in GTA 6." Through a cloud editor, it adjusts the cloud density and position, creating realistic-looking weather conditions. Jet chases in GTA 6 could thus be even more impressive than in GTA 5. Here is the video on Reddit.
His wish doesn't seem so unlikely, because RDR2 comes from the same developer forge as the upcoming GTA 6. Certainly, during the development, the Western game was also oriented. According to rumors, RDR2 even served as a kind of experimental laboratory for GTA 6. According to an insider, Cuba will also serve as a setting in addition to Vice City and the Guarma in RDR2 was probably the prototype for this.
GTA 6 becomes Flight Simulator - fans want to aim high
Here's what fans are saying: The GTA 6 community is impressed by the cloudy prospects. Many fans are already sure that they will probably spend a good amount of the playing time not on the streets of Vice City, but in the sky above the city. These are more comments on the post.
- sterr_8: "It's going to be incredible. I can't even imagine how spectacular chases in the air will look. Or how nice it will be to fly through these clouds with a hydra and see the nature of Florida."
- Ninja_BeameR: "I just can't imagine GTA 6 because it looks so good in the early stages of development."
- horres181: "It looks so good! Even if they would just copy the clouds without any changes, I'd be impressed."
It is not yet known what the clouds will actually look like in GTA 6. But in the mega leak 2022 for GTA 6, it was already possible to guess that there will be a lot in store for fans graphically. Because the material leaked at the time comes from a development phase in 2020, so the current state should be even more impressive. The clouds in RDR2 are already a real eye-catcher, but Rockstar Games will certainly put the crown on the whole thing in GTA 6.
