Grand Theft Auto 6 may be inevitable but there are information encircling around the World Wide Web that should still be taken as a grain of salt as no official word from the developer, Rockstar Games, are released (at the time of writing). With the launch of GTA 5, GTA Online is undoubtedly one of the most successful ventures of Rockstar. Reports from analysts state that they suspect it to remain successful for quite a good long while, and for as long as it does remain a go-to videogame by many.
Grand Theft Auto 6 Won’t Likely be Rushed, But Reports Suggest That it Will Happen
The company behind the famous GTA games is found to be unlikely to rush into numerous projects for the future, Grand Theft Auto 6 included. For now, it would seem that Rockstar is putting their bets on GTA Online. According to Forbes, micro-purchases from GTA Online alone have already reached a whopping $500-million (at the time of writing). This is a staggering figure in which that even the game’s closest competitor is even found to unlikely ever lift a candle in trying to beat that amount.
Analysts believe that the earning power being brought by GTA Online will most likely influence GTA 6. Analysts think that said earning power is going to be following GTA Online’s strategy for the 6th installment of the Grand Theft Auto franchise, while still maintaining that classic GTA style of gameplay.
However, not everyone see the success of GTA Online as a good thing for the next Grand Theft Auto game. Some see it as a threat to future GTA sequels as analysts believe this is not going to most likely put an end to the GTA tradition of sequels.
Earlier rumors also suggest that the next installment for Rockstar’s hit gaming series may not be out in the market for about two or three more years. However, it is known that long-time fans of the GTA series will still be able to keep their passion for the series burning long enough to wait for the 6th Grand Theft Auto game.
Furthermore, since it would still take quite a while before Grand Theft Auto 6 gets released into markets, the highly anticipated title might even be released alongside the launch of next generation consoles, which could be Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Two. Reports tell that the next GTA title will be launched just in time for fans to enjoy the latest versions of the popular consoles.
