Suffice it to say GTA VI that many of the fans crowd before any possible news or novelty about it. They’re almost over 10 years since it came out GTA V, and the followers of the star franchise of RockstarGames are wondering: what will happen with the next installment?
The thing is, between GTA IV and GTA V, there was only a 5-year waiting period. Today, with almost twice as many years accumulated, we still have no official news about it. But, according to some analysts, it is estimated that precisely 2023 would be the defining date for its launch.
Apparently they discovered this based on a memo shared by take-two as part of the proposed acquisition of Zynga. The press release said the following:
Looking ahead, the combined company is expected to receive 14% annual net sales growth (excluding annual net sales opportunities from any future acquisitions) for the period leading up to fiscal years 2021 through 2024.
According to a report from Axios An analyst at Jeffries said there are only a couple of IPs that can provide enough profit margin for Take-Two to feel so confident of such growth. So at least one of Rockstar’s IPs should be released by fiscal year 2024.
These are not unfounded rumours, but rather careful data analysis.
Doug Creutz, another analyst Cowen, was even more specific, saying that the projected profit margin of 9 billion, could indicate that GTA VI will be released that same fiscal year, which runs from April 2023 to March 2024. This more or less lines up with the rumors of release that were circulating for 2023, according to a hypothetical internal Rockstar statement leaked.
Meanwhile, the launch of the GTA Trilogy Definitive EditionIt definitely didn’t go as expected. Simply put, it was a resounding failure. Rockstar entrusted the outsourcing to Grove Street Games, but the results were so disappointing that the company offered a free pc game to all those who had bought the pack.
We’ll see if he release version of GTA V for next-gen consoles it goes better You know, Rockstar loves to port their games. The more times they port the same game, the better. Said port is planned to be released in March 2022, and will offer a wide range of technical, visual, and performance improvements, in order to better take advantage of the potential of the new hardware, making the game better and better.
For now, if the rumors are confirmed, we would have a date to declare at the end of this year. And, if the calculations that the analysts made are correct, GTA VI could be released next year, or the year after at the latest.
And what do you think? Could GTA VI be closer than we think, or is it mere speculation?
