Anticipation continues to build around the forthcoming installment of Rockstar Games’ blockbuster franchise, Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6). In a move that speaks volumes about the buzz surrounding the upcoming release, popular livestreaming platform Kick has jumped the gun, already creating a category dedicated to the highly awaited game.
While the details about GTA 6 remain veiled in mystery, Kick’s pre-emptive move highlights the enormous interest that the gaming community has in the next iteration of the franchise. In 2022, Rockstar Games had tried to remove leaked footage that offered a sneak peek into the game, including glimpses of two new playable characters. Despite their silence on official updates or previews, Rockstar Games has confirmed they’re diligently working on the next Grand Theft Auto instalment.
Emerging in response to Twitch’s ban on gambling content, Kick has quickly gained popularity, backed by notable Twitch streamer Trainwrecks. Unlike its competitor, Kick permits the streaming of gambling-related content, potentially opening new avenues for streamers and viewers alike. This new player in the streaming space is certainly one to watch as we approach the GTA 6 release.
Kick recently took to Twitter to share an intriguing image of recommended games, which included familiar titles like Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Warzone 2, Fortnite, and the not-yet-released GTA 6. The GTA 6 card on Kick intriguingly features the Vice City aesthetic, a nod to a theme hinted at in earlier leaks.
The hype surrounding GTA 6 is undeniable. Given the record-breaking success of its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto 5, in terms of viewership and player numbers, it’s hardly surprising that Kick is laying the groundwork for the game’s launch. As the platform’s anticipation continues to grow, popular live streamers like Adin Ross and Buddha could potentially gravitate towards Kick, strengthening its position in the streaming sphere. As we all await Rockstar Games’ next big move, the buzz surrounding GTA 6 is only set to intensify.
