Released in 2013, GTA V celebrated its 8th birthday last September. The goose that lays the golden eggs of Take Two and Rockstar continues to fuel the publisher’s coffers, as fans now hope to be able to move on. And that’s good, analysts have estimated that GTA VI would be released in the coming years, with a fairly specific release date.
A long awaited game
The years pass and look alike for GTA V. Although its content continues to be expanded, via regular updates that more or less delight aficionados of the Rockstar title, the game continues to be released on various consoles. Thereby, GTA V is due out soon on Sony and Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, namely the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S and X. A succession of releases worthy of Bethesda which struggles to leave room for the sequel, always eagerly awaited. However, it could well be that the “chaotic” development of this GTA VI is one of the causes linked to its long development.
For years now GTA VI keeps suggesting rumors and rumors, more or less serious. Insiders continue to share their information piecemeal, while Rockstar continues to persevere in its policy of total silence. The game has not yet been formalized as information continues to flow. And while its alleged release date keeps leaking here and there, pushed back as the years go by, analysts believe they have put their finger on the right release date.
an exit for the fiscal year 2023/2024?
It was on the sidelines of the acquisition of Zynga by Take-Two, up to 12.7 billion dollars, that analysts at Axios used their brains. And for good reason, in view of this takeover, Take-Two forecasts economic growth of 14% until 2024, or nine billion dollars all the same. According to senior analyst Doug Creutz, behind this significant growth would hide the release of a huge game: GTA VI. It’s obvious that GTA VI will allow Take-Two to benefit from strong economic growth.
Economic growth such as the 14% put forward by Take-Two would be insufficient to cover an exit as expected as that of GTA VI according to insider Tom Henderson. And for good reason, for their respective releases, GTA V and Red Dead Redemption II allowed Tale-Two to increase its revenues by 110 and 60%. It’s hard to believe that a game as anticipated as GTA VI could be the source of growth as slight as 14%. Nevertheless, according to the estimates of analysts at Axios, a major new game could thus emerge from the bowels of Take-Two should be released by the end of the 2023/2024 fiscal year, i.e. before March 31, 2024.
