In the competitive world of gaming, anticipation is mounting for one of the most awaited sequels in the industry: Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6). A recent investor call for parent company Take-Two Interactive has added fuel to the rumor mill, hinting at a potential release in the 2024-2025 window.
The Grand Theft Auto franchise has long been synonymous with ground-breaking gameplay, gripping narratives, and immersive open-world environments. Amid an atmosphere of heightened expectations, Rockstar confirmed that active development is underway for this highly-anticipated installment. With rumors suggesting a setting in Vice City and the introduction of a female protagonist, GTA 6 is set to redefine the norms of the popular series.
While the gaming community eagerly awaits more official details, Take-Two’s investor call painted an optimistic picture for the future. CEO Strauss Zelnick announced expectations for Fiscal 2025 to set new standards in the gaming industry, an exciting phrase that has previously been associated with GTA 6. Zelnick also projected a staggering $8 billion in Net Bookings for the company during Fiscal 2025, raising speculations about the scale of their upcoming projects.
However, Zelnick clarified that these forecasts are not linked solely to the release of GTA 6. Instead, they encapsulate the potential of Take-Two’s broad portfolio of games in development. “We believe it’s highly achievable,” Zelnick said, expressing confidence in the company’s fiscal outlook for the next couple of years. “It’s a reflection of a pipeline we’ve been investing in for years.”
Despite this, the rumors of a 2024 release for GTA 6 persist, aligning with the heightened expectations for Fiscal 2024 and 2025. Although these are mere speculations, the timing suggests the possibility that Rockstar’s next major release could be right around the corner.
For fans clamouring for official news, patience remains the watchword. Rockstar Games is known for their tight-lipped approach leading up to major releases. Until an official statement is made, the gaming community will remain on the edge of their seats, eager for the chance to once again immerse themselves in the thrilling world of Grand Theft Auto.
