It turned out that Rockstar Games, the developer of Grand Theft Auto, patented a new NPC technology in October 2020. It could be related to GTA 6.
The last game of Grand Theft Auto, or GTA, as it is known as one of the most popular productions in the game world, made its debut about 8 years ago. There have been constant rumors about the new game for 8 years, but there is still no official announcement. In the past hours, new clues have emerged that GTA 6 is being developed.
As some Reddit users have noticed recently, Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, turned out to be a patent application for a project titled “System And Method For Virtual Navigation In A Gaming Environment” in October 2020. It is stated that the system described in the patent was developed by Simon Parr, one of the artificial intelligence programmers of Rockstar Games, and technology assistant David Hynd.
When we look at the details of this new project, we see that it has been developed as a response to traditional systems that cannot produce the desired NPC behaviors due to current processor and memory limits. In other words, this new technology will create a realistic virtual world without any hardware and software limitations. This project is said to be particularly relevant to the traffic behavior of NPCs. In other words, it is aimed to offer us a more realistic and comprehensive traffic simulation.
Looking at the details, it is one of the first details that comes to mind about GTA 6, but of course there is no official statement. Although GTA 6 is not officially announced, we think that it is currently being developed, everyone is guessing. GTA 6 seems to surprise us, considering that even GTA 5 has one of the best artificial intelligence on the market.
