News that Grand Theft Auto 6 will not be making a look at the Summer Game Fest display isn’t actually a surprise. While fans are starving for more information on the next Grand Theft Auto following its main statement in February previously this year, it’s worth tempering our expectations on precisely when we’ll learn more– and we might be waiting a long time.
Let’s get the problem out of the method initially: it’s most likely we will not get our hands on GTA 6 up until at some point in between 2024 and2025 Rockstar Games might not have actually validated a release date or window, however as reported back in May 2020, moms and dad business Take-Two Interactive’s monetary revenues report(opens in brand-new tab) from that year reveals that the business anticipates to invest $89 million on marketing in between April 2023 and completion of March 2024– that’s a big spike. As the report explains, it’s over half the marketing spending plan anticipated for any other over the next years, suggesting we might we GTA 6 release because duration.
Earlier this year, when Take-Two Interactive detailed its organized acquisition of mobile video game business Zynga, it shared a note mentioning that “the combined business is anticipated to provide a 14% substance yearly development rate … over the three-year duration from Take-Two’s Fiscal Years 2021 through 2024”. Experts believed that might suggest Rockstar is preparing to launch a significant IP.
But, as we understand, the only thing that is continuous is modification, and a lot can alter in between now and2024 The abundance of video game hold-ups we’ve seen over the previous year is proof of that.
That’s why we’re more likely to think leaker Tom Henderson’s anticipated(opens in brand-new tab)2024/2025 release window (which has actually been supported(opens in brand-new tab) by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier). Even then, we might see hold-ups in the future. Basically, we will not be getting our hands on GTA 6 for a while.
So, based upon the anticipated release window, when could we discover more information? Well, if a 2024 release window is on the cards then we anticipate Rockstar Games will begin sharing info next year, however we do not anticipate an expose as huge as GTA 6 to be sandwiched in between other statements at something like Summer Game Fest. No, while Rockstar Games’ GTA 6 statement was more of a whimper than a bang, we picture the designer will host its own display or statement for Grand Theft Auto 6 when it’s prepared.
Based on previous statements, we envision the designer might just tease an expose and after that drop a trailer that breaks the web.
Either method, do not anticipate GTA 6 news anytime quickly and definitely do not anticipate it at Summer Game Fest.
