GTA 6 is in Development and “well underway” as confirmed by Rockstar
Rockstar has recently announced the current state of GTA 6 on Twitter, as well as at the end of a blog post about GTA online’s upcoming updates. It is the very first time that the studio has officially acknowledged the sequel’s existence and current development.
“With the unprecedented longevity of the GTA V, we are well aware that a lot of you would have been asking us about an entry in the Grand Theft Auto series,” the post reads.
“With every new project that we take on, our goal has always been to significantly move right beyond what we have previously offered, and we are pleased to confirm that active development for the very next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway.
According to Rockstar, they are looking forward to sharing more as soon as they are ready, so stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official details.
GTA 6 is official
This is actually the very first time that Rockstar actually acknowledges the fact that GTA 6 is currently under development, as well as giving us our very first inkling of how far, along its development cycle the much-anticipated title has gotten. While there’s no official release date currently, Rockstar’s suggestion is that the development of GTA 6 is in full swing.
Also, Rockstar has also set itself a high bar for the next upcoming title. Although it offers no specifics about what GTA 6 has to offer, eager fans that are required to wait close to half a decade for every new entry in the franchise that will have high demands, and the studio’s promise to “significantly move beyond” the previous entry in the series actually would not alleviate any hype.
When it comes to a more precise release date, publisher take-two’s recent deal to purchase mobile gaming Zynga offers us some clues. A press release for the deal contained the note that “the combined company is expected to offer around 14% compound annual growth rate … over the three-year period from Take-two’s Fiscal years 2021 through 2024.
In other response to those figures, an analyst from the investment banking advisory firm Jefferies, quoted by Stephen tolito of Axios, suggested “there are only a handful of titles that can actually offer management with confidence to put out such strong guidance. We are meant to believe there is at least one Rockstar IP that has been scheduled to be released by the FY24”.
Since the GTA 6 has officially been brought to the table, that 2024 release date could actually be open for the Grand Theft Auto 6. So all you GTA fans out there, be prepared for another one.
