Be it a neophyte to the gaming world or an adept gamer who doesn’t know about the very famous Grand Theft Auto. Admit it every one of us has been playing it since our childhood. We have been a part of its journey through eleven game versions and four expansion packs. We have evolved with it from a two-dimensional universe to a three-dimensional universe. Every element of the game fascinates and grabs the interest of the gamers, be it the graphics, music, story, the characters, the quests, cheat codes, stealth, stealing the fancy cars, being chased by the police, fighting with the weapons we acquired, the map everything has weaved a web of delectation around it.
By observing its timeline of releases we can say that the first game was released in 1997 and the latest GTA 5 was released in 2013. It has been 7 years since their last game release and the fans are compelled to adopt the wait. This is not something new to its development group Rockstar North as we have experienced an almost an everlasting wait of 8 years for the much-awaited red dead redemption 2.This just ingrains the fact that there is no assurance about the release of the much-anticipated action-adventure game GTA 6 any time soon.
The lingering question is, considering the amount of success GTA 5 has received and the unparalleled shower of love by the fans does Rockstar have any plans of the sixth installment.with the unprecedented performance of the GTA 5 the stakes are high for GTA 6. There is a pressure of delivering a product much better than the previous one. GTA Online has also been flourishing. Grand theft Auto’s publisher Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, when asked a similar question during an interview at Bernstein Annual Strategic Decisions Conference has clarified that the success of GTA Online and GTA 5 will in no way object their idea of releasing GTA 6 by any means in the future. He also said that even after the release of GTA 6, if the previous instalments still work well there is no way for dismay as their child branches are doing good but not the competitors.
With no official trailer, news, or any other details the fans are not left with any other option but to build up their predictions. There are also rumours and talks that GTA 6 will witness a small release initially and expand its structure with the updates along the time.
Well, talking about when the GTA 6 will be released, it will likely release immediately after the release of Play Station 5 and Xbox Series X. This is believable considering the release of GTA 5 in the same year as the release of Play Station 4 and Xbox One, albeit the original version was released before the console releases, the Rockstar in no time released the compatible versions. Another reason that strengthens the belief is that this was declared by the Intrepid Capital Fund’s financial analysts. GTA 6 might be the perfect game to play with these next-generation consoles.
We cant assure the exact date of GTA 6’s release in the market, if we are lucky enough it might release in 2021, some even say 2023 might see its release or the wait may even prolong. But we can see ourselves playing the game shortly, this is as sure as eggs are eggs.
