Rockstar Announces GTA 6 set in fictional city based on Houston/Galveston, TX


Rockstar Games has confirmed that production is underway on the 6th video game in the smash hit Grand Theft Auto series. Among details about the game’s features and setting, Rockstar confirmed rumors that it will be set in a fictional city named “Magnolia City” that is firmly based on Houston Texas.

The fictional name comes from one of Houston’s very first nicknames. Starting in the 1870’s, many locals referred to Houston by this name due to the vast magnolia forests, which have since been destroyed by urban sprawl.

Lead designer James Cummings revealed details about the vision of GTA 6 on his website:

“We really wanted to push the envelope on the scale of GTA 6, and that’s why we chose Houston. Houston is HUGE and very spread out. Our goal is to capture the true scale of Houston and its suburbs. This is going to be a big challenge for us, but we’ve never backed down from a challenge before. We WILL capture the essence and scale of Houston, from the skyscrapers to the shore.”

No release date has been announced yet, but Cummings states it will be at least 6 months before more information is given about the project.

    Don’t 4get da “drank”

  6. I’ve played all the original games on PS and PS2 haven’t really got into it on the Xbox one yet or the PS4. But I don’t really play games as much as I beta test them nowadays. It would be sweet to incorporate some of the aspects o the Saints Row games and the awesome features it had on the first release of the title. Don’t hate the player hate the game and how it’s scored. I’m OG y’all knew to the game like preschool draft picks.

      Hi, I played every GTA game. You all are mad and I think it would be really cool if you made it based off real life. Where your character gets a girlfriend, gets married and has kids. I also think you should make a country tip one to that might make you more money (I honestly have no idea what you’re trying to say here) I know I would buy it.

      Punctuation kid, it’s important and you’re welcome.

  9. This will be cool! Don’t forget to add a few, speeders, drunk drivers, and bad cops!

    Yes! They should include Montrose, Heights, GOOF, Pasadena, Clear Lake, Meyerland areas. And get some LOCAL punk, rap, and metal acts for a change! Don’t forget the construction on HWY 290 that will still be here in 2030.

    Can’t wait for this game hopefully it will still have the 3 different characters and storylines, also if one of them were a chick that would be cool.

  60. What in the holy hell are swangas? Am I showing my age, or just the Lilly white color of my skin? 40 years here, much faith that Rock star will bring to life all the unique and diverse parts of this great city, swangas and all 🙂 can’t wait

  61. Please add Dallas Texas to the map or something.

    • You got to make it FLOOD, the loop, the ‘trose, Galleria, 3rd and 5th ward, PurpleDrink in the cup, cowboys, homies, and Galveston! This is gonna to be my H-town dream! Gonna go broke from Shark Cards…Thanks Rockstar.

  62. Puft one of the new camaros in the game tho customize

  63. This will be the biggest game of the yr, just please get our culture,characters, n music right….. This is Htwn Texas far triller n different from the rest…..from the jack up trucks, to the slab out slabs…. I’ve been waiting for someone to make this game happen one day, always wondered why Htwn was never on anyone’s mind… Thanks

  64. I’m An Original Magnolia Park-East End-Houston Texas born and raised. I can tell and show many stories about our neighborhood. Thanks for the Spotlight! A lot of Hispanic Culture, History and Heros come from this Barrio.
    “Magnolia Grown”. 😎👍🏽.

  65. Make sure to get the traffic in the game I’m sure their will be chase scenes etc and traffic will play a role so throw some big ol nasty oversize loads in there with escorts and stuff to really get the congestion and madness of Houston traffic in game lol

  66. I wonder if the S.U.C. will make an appearance in the game??! Z-Ro!!!!

  67. Need just let you make your own character and slab and swangas gotta be on that hoe music and all

  68. Make sure you get every hood Acres Homes 44, Homestead, Greenspoint aka Gunspoint, 3rd Ward, 5th ward, South Park, Dead End, Sunny Side aka check a hoe Tx, and many more. And also 97.9 the box has to be a radio station.

    This is cool. I live in the northeast side of Houston. Hope y’all don’t forget lake Houston. I hope you capture the beauty of Houston and its areas. There is a lot of Hispanic heritage so it would be awesome to have some Hispanic characters. As a female it would be amazing to play a female character. Chingo bling would be a great talk show radio host for one of your radio stations. He’s from Houston and a Chicano rapper/ comedian.

  71. Can You Add The Valley As A Bonus City. Which Would be Harlingen Down To Brownsville Tx. It’s The Tip Of Texas Down South. You’re Next Game Should be In Mexico. A Cartel Story Line.

  72. Hell yeah y’all better put the swangers on Their and of course as for the music, y’all need to put my boy Carlos coy SPM” on the radio it ai t a Houston game if Thiers no SPM music begin played

  73. I don’t think gta players are gonna be ready for the traffic of Houston roads. We won’t be able to get anywhere for shit

  74. There better not be a bridge goin straight from h town to g town. Theres towns between tooo. Cant wait!

  75. You guys should totally have a different server with no cops to that every time you kill or blow up something the cpps dont automatically come after you.

  76. Is it going to be underwater?

  77. When my son graduated from ITT, I told him that him and his friends should make a Grand Theft Auto game but make it about TEXAS. I told them they should have made it multi-versatile in which, in the game, your come from Liberty City to Houston then to Dallas, then to Austin, & finally to San Antonio completing all missions in every city. The music would be made of All Texas artists and songs. Even a SKREW station. Well son….Reginald Allen Jr., it’s too late but I hope you guys use the stuff I just mentioned and not just make it about Houston/Galveston. Make it about the Great State of Texas!

  78. Don’t forget the Kappa Beach Party

  79. should be able to create a character for story mode no matter race or gender!!!

  80. Well im ready but dont want it rushed either im hoping maps even bigger than five and way more missions they need to go all out with lots of heists. Take it to a awhole lot bigger extreme then five was. Super excited hope its kickass

  81. Y’all should also consider bringing back Midnight Club n call it….. Midnight Club Texas Heat (swanga addition)……….

  82. Make sure to include the causeway from main land to Galveston. That would be a good stint spot. Just sayin!!

  83. They already have the pop trunk feature for the ones who keep on saying they need to add pop trunk smh I guess you haven’t played gta 5 yet lol. On another not I can’t wait I been saying for years they need to make Houston a city in the gta series

  84. SLABS on them 84s n 83s, spm, zro, lucky luciano, dat boi t and many other htown artist on the radio,u gotta catch tha culture of H-town and tha surrounding areas and also a longer story mode please dont make it so short

  85. Don’t forget the bums fighting for a spot next to the burning barrel under the Pierce Elevated…perhaps this is how the game begins….

  86. why do yall believe this it is bullshit

  87. Don’t forget the Kappa Beach party with plenty of naked hoes twerking and giving head on the Sea wall.

  88. You did give up on gta Tokyo so I will not take that sentence you said imposter

  89. Dont forget the Southwest Sharpstown Relient medical center Zoo GRB

  90. If they are going thru with this I wonder what hoods will they incorporate into it. U Know the Nawf(North) and Sawf(South) is different but still similar. They gotta have the Historic 5th and 3rd Wards respectively that’s part of the Houston culture and don’t 4get the Barrios lol. Oh and the Arenas slabs swangas pop trunks bang chopped and screwed 610 45 59 Beltway 288 i10 customization gotta be on point 4 the cars smh. cum on Rockstar make that happen.

  91. They better have our radio stations cloned!!! The buzz, the boxx, the eagle!!! Fuck yes!!!

  92. Mais gta6 sort en viron quand
    Et il aura des photo de la mal

  93. Should have been based in chicago

  94. This better be a longer story for this GTA and better one 2

  95. This will be amaizing dont forget the astrodome!! Should also be able to walk around with the double cup full of lean. Make it as realistic and more customizable than ever!

    0 source as to where james said this

    And it would contradict the already published gta 6 sountrack leaked which was based on vice city

    And the pink VI in grand theft auto VI is also…based on vice city….and rockstar already said they were likely to go back to vice city or another country but they weren’t 100% sure

    There is no evidence james ever said this

  98. Sweet

    There is a jim cummings he is a voice actor

    Anyone believing this hoax is an absolute moron

    “James Cummings” does not exist anywhere in rockstar

    there is a soundtrack leak from gta 6 that is the only thing that exists and it is based on vice city(but it is an alpha stage can be scrapped if rockstar doesnt want to use it)

    This texas shit is a hoax

    Gta 6 is not going to be in texas

    Rockstar also has a bad history of recycling stuff
    They could go back to vice city, new york or even gta 1 go back to england…
