Although official information is limited, leaks and speculations have created a mosaic of expectations and predictions that only serve to heighten the enthusiasm of fans of this saga.
Rockstar has confirmed that ‘GTA VI’ is still in development, and while the release date remains a mystery, the development pattern of ‘GTA V’ suggests we might expect ‘GTA VI’ by 2025. This speculation is reinforced by Rockstar’s high expectations for the fiscal year 2025, indicating a major release in 2024.
Take-Two’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, has indicated that the game’s development is well advanced, suggesting that an official announcement could be imminent. Moreover, Microsoft has forecasted that ‘GTA VI’ will be released in 2024, based on assumptions from Bloomberg. The latter has also suggested that we might expect an announcement in November and a trailer in December, further increasing anticipation.
Regarding platforms, it’s almost certain that ‘GTA VI’ will be available on Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, and later on PC. However, there are doubts about whether the game will reach PS4 and Xbox One consoles. The low availability of next-generation consoles has led some analysts to suggest that 2024 might still be too early for the launch.
‘GTA VI’ promises to be larger in content and will expand over time. Rockstar has made a significant investment, with a budget of $89 million.
Rockstar’s acquisition of Zynga suggests ambitious plans and a possible expansion in terms of platforms and formats. The franchise is known for its ability to launch games across multiple platforms, increasing the likelihood that ‘GTA VI’ will follow this pattern.
This upcoming title from Rockstar promises to be a cultural event that will define the next generation of interactive entertainment.
