Will GTA 6 be Cross Platform?

Will GTA 6 be Cross Platform?

For those wondering if the online side of GTA 6 will be cross-platform, this information is still unknown at this time. 

The new version of GTA Online has the potential to enable cross-platform play between PS5, Xbox Series X / S and PC. This is a common trend in modern video games. As long as the 

Rockstar can suppress the game from GTA6 mods on the PC, it's great to see players on all platforms unite under one roof.

Grand Theft Auto 6 Innovations

To conclude the story, let's take a look at the last bit of information that gives us a glimpse of what to  expect from Rockstar Games. 

First of all, AI development in rock star games is off to a good start. 

Take-Two Interactive (Rockstar's parent company) has issued a patent entitled "Systems and Methods for Virtual Navigation in a Gaming Environment." 

In it, they talk about certain limitations of current AI technology and at the same time aim to improve the behavior of NPCs (non-player characters).

They aim to further enliven the gaming world by allowing NPCs to have more complex action patterns as they spend the day. For example, if you are not confident in your driving skills, you will slow down when you drive when the sun goes down. 

"Conventional video game node-based vehicles can make any decision at an intersection (wandering behavior). These node-based vehicles have certain factors such as traffic when deciding on navigation. May not be considered. Low level vehicle avoidance. Therefore, only  NPCs avoid the vehicle and its surrounding objects. We cannot explain lane changes, expected exits, weather conditions, etc. when parking  a car. 

The patent is  filled with  jargon and describes complex AI mechanisms, so it's almost unreadable to the layman, but I've picked out some parts that make sense. 

Please note that this does not necessarily mean that the patent was specially developed for Grand Theft Auto 6. However, it is fairly safe to think that it will affect its development. The following is an excerpt from the patent.

"Because these NPCs can be programmed with artificial intelligence, in-game actions  are  at least partially controlled by real-time decisions made by NPC algorithms in relation to the game's current state  and  environment." 

Summary- NPC-operated virtual world methods and simulations are particularly limited in terms of driving patterns. With this new technology, the simulated world gives players a new level of immersiveness and can improve known mistakes NPCs make on the move. 

Most importantly, you can experience  the GTA 6 car and environment more than ever. And I'm confident that GTA 6's graphics are amazing and can take your favorite game to the next level.

After all, as  former  Rockstar North president Leslie Benzies said, their only limits are storage and disk size, as they can simulate anything in the world.
