With GTA V being one of the most popular games in the world, many would think that Rockstar is hard at work on a sequel to the popular open-world title. This may be happening but it seems that there is a lot of work to be done as a Take-Two announcement infers.
Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar and other well-known studios, has held an earnings call for investors recently. The company mentioned that the number of releases for the fiscal year would be light, which means that only a handful of titles will land on the market before March 2021.
Better chances in 2021
During the same earnings call, it was also mentioned that more launches are planned for the next fiscal year, which begins in April 2021 and ends in March 2022. Some voices argue that Rockstar may opt to make an official announcement related to GTA 6 this year.
Red Dead Redemption was announced two years before it was released, and the same PR strategy could be used for GTA 6 as it will increase the hype for the eventual launch of the game and convince more people to purchase it at launch.
Some rumors are just rumors
There were several rumors released in the past, which inferred that GTA 6 would be released at some point in 2021, with many arguing that it would be a great launch title to showcase the prowess of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
Many speculations have surrounded the anticipated title. It is thought that Rockstar may opt to drop the modern-day setting of the game, planning to revisit Vice City in the 1980s. This setting should provide more creative freedom without offending the sensibilities of some people or groups, as it happened with GTA V. A female protagonist may also make an appearance, marking a first for the series.
Only time will tell what is real and what is wishful thinking.
