PlayStation insider reveals possibility of Red Dead Redemption 2 features in GTA 6. (Rockstar Games)

Prepare for a gaming revolution as a PlayStation developer spills the beans on GTA 6 incorporating several beloved features from the iconic Red Dead Redemption 2 game. Renowned as one of the best open-world games ever, Red Dead Redemption 2 set a benchmark with its unparalleled attention to detail, making it a tough act to follow. However, the eagerly awaited GTA 6 seems poised to surpass even this gaming masterpiece, with tantalizing leaks and rumors stirring up anticipation.

Eagle Eye Precision Returns

The PlayStation insider has disclosed that GTA 6 will inherit features such as the Eagle Eye from Red Dead Redemption 2. This distinctive ability allows players to identify various objects and characters in the game world, proving particularly handy for tracking animals during hunting excursions, Gamingbible reported. While the extent of hunting in GTA 6 remains unknown, whispers of a fishing minigame suggest the Eagle Eye might find a new purpose- perhaps in tracking down rampaging crocodiles or alligators?

But that's not all; another exciting feature making a comeback in GTA 6 is the NPC interaction system from Red Dead Redemption 2. While GTA 5 allowed some interaction with non-playable characters, the immersive options offered by Red Dead Redemption 2 promise to elevate the open-world experience in Vice City. Get ready to engage with a variety of NPCs roaming the streets, including quirky characters like the infamous hammer-lady.

Release Date Speculations

While these revelations certainly stoke the flames of anticipation, one crucial piece of information remains elusive- the release date. Rockstar Games has kept mum, offering only a vague 2025 release window. Despite the lingering uncertainty, the promise of these new features in GTA 6 suggests that the wait will be well worth it. Gamers can hardly contain their excitement as they eagerly await more revelations about what this highly anticipated game will offer when it hits the shelves next year.
