GTA 6 Development And Release Date:
Though still there is no official announcement for GTA 6 but many hints can be picked which speaks a lot about the GTA 6 development.
Firstly, on the October 2013 in a press conference Leslie Benzies told that “We’ve got about 45 years’ worth of ideas we want to do”. Then later on he also mentioned GTA 6 by adding “We don’t know what ‘GTA VI’ will be, but we’ve got some ideas.”
As this conversation indicates that Rockstar does not want people to know about GTA 6 as GTA 5 is on its peak in current scenario and time difference also matters as there was 5 years difference between GTA 4 & GTA 5.
Secondly, in an interview with a website(Ballerstatus) Brooklyn-born DJ Whoo Kid, 41, talked about his music in video games, saying “I was in ‘Call of Duty’ and I was in some ‘Grand Theft Auto’ games. I’m bout to be in the new ‘Grand Theft Auto’ that takes place in New York again.”
This also intensifies that NYC-based Rockstar Games is in the process of developing another title. Currently Rockstar is paying more attention for DLC’s and Online GTA features.
About GTA 5:
“Grand Theft Auto V” was launched last year for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and is an open world action game developed by Scotland-based Rockstar North and published by NYC-based Rockstar Games. The title received highly favorable reviews, was the 15th installment in the “GTA” series, and the first game since 2008’s “GTA IV.” The Spike Video Game Awards gave the title the Most Anticipated Game award in 2012. Following its release, the game received the Game of the Year award at the 2013 Golden Joystick Awards. Only three days following its release, IGN listed “GTA V” as second on its list of “Top 25 Xbox 360 Games.”
Within just 24 hours of its release, “GTA V” generated more than $800 million in revenue, equating to around 11.21 million copies sold. Three days after its release, the title had surpassed $1 billion in sales. By Oct. 7, nearly one month after the game’s Sept. 17 release date, “GTA V” became the largest digital release in the PlayStation Store for the PS3. The game also received a score of 8/10 on Gamespot.com.
So What Does This Tell About GTA 6 Release Date:
All these qualities of GTA 5 commit the die hard fans of GTA to query for GTA 6 and yet there is no official announcement for release of GTA 6 but we expect in October 2018. In between we also expect some other version of GTA to come. For example, San Andreas and Vice City.
Update On 8 January 2015:
The recent rumor about GTA 6 release date talks about GTA 6 to release only for PS4 in 2017. It also says the game won’t release for Microsoft Xbox console, which leaves us in little doubtful position.
