Rockstar Games is the name behind the second best-selling game in the market that is GTA V. To maintain their presence at the top of the market, they are aiming high for their new upcoming game: GTA VI. Previous games released by Rockstar used their old RAGE Game Engine. There are some rumors that Rockstar will use the new game engine RAGE 6 in their upcoming game: GTA VI.

What is RAGE Engine

RAGE stands for Rockstar Advanced Game Engine that has been developed by RAGE Technology Group: a division of Rockstar Games. Rockstar Games have been using the RAGE engine for its games starting from 2006 in Table Tennis. RAGE Engine is used in GTA IV, GTA V, Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2 which are one of the most popular and commercially successful games of all time.

Given the Rockstar games’ reliance on RAGE Engine, it was very unlikely that they will use any new Engine for their upcoming game GTA VI. But according to a highly reputable inside source “Matheusvictorbr“,  Rockstar has huge plans for the GTA VI game engine. That means that are working on a new iteration of RAGE Engine.
