Rockstar Games plans to announce its highly-anticipated ‘GTA VI’ by end of this year




According to Bloomberg’s sources, the Rockstar Games’ division which is famous for its Grand Theft Auto franchise of games will announce GTA VI or GTA 6 as early as this week. Bloomberg reports that “plans to then publish a trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI next month to celebrate Rockstar’s 25th anniversary, said the people, who asked to not be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly”. It adds that “No video game has driven more fervor from fans and investors than Grand Theft Auto VI, which is expected to be one of the most significant entertainment releases of the decade. Its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto V, has sold more than 185 million copies and is the second-best selling video game of all time, behind Minecraft, which had the advantage of also being playable on phones.”

Bloomberg also reports that “Rockstar has spent the last few years working to clean up its corporate culture and work-life balance after employees complained of burnout during the making of its last game, 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2″ and hints that this could possibly be the reason behind GTA 6’s delay along with the pandemic. However, we should note that everyone got a preview of what’s to come from GTA 6 after “hackers released hours of early footage from Grand Theft Auto VI. Rockstar blamed a “network intrusion” and said it “will properly introduce you to this next game when it is ready.” Two UK teens were convicted of the hack in a London criminal trial earlier this year”. Bloomberg also revealed that “The game is set in a fictional version of Miami and features two protagonists, a man and a woman”

Take-Two Interactive, which is up by 1.5% as we speak, is going to release its earnings on Wednesday and is expected to make some announcements related to GTA 6 at this event as well. Apart from that, it is also expected that the game will be released by next year as the leaks showed that it is almost ready. At the moment, there is no information regarding pricing of this new game but we will know more soon.
