But the company has already confirmed that development has begun for the next Grand Theft Auto game.
When we asked Neff for details he said: “That isn't my page, account or résumé. I worked on GTA 5 a long time ago and haven't done anything since. It seems I'm being trolled online really badly.” We might as well all go home now: Grand Theft Auto 6 is already out on, er, Play Station 2?
"We didn't really think about it this time [of GTA V]. This character set is just what came to us: it wasn't, 'we've got X and Y so we need Z,' we weren't trying to do it off a checklist - I don't think that will ever give you something that's believable or engaging.
"In the future, could we do a game with a lead female character? We just haven't found the right game for it yet, but it's one of the things that we always think about.
Then fans had to wait even longer for 2013's GTA 5, which only landed on PC as a re-release in 2015.
A rough five-year timeline means that we could expect to see GTA 5 this year, although it's extremely unlikely.
It remains to be seen if there will be multiple protagonists once again, but we would love to see GTA 6 herald the inclusion of the series’ first female protagonist.
