Grand Theft Auto has unanimously been the most popular game franchise from Rockstar Games. And with the launch of GTA V the popularity reached unprecedented heights. And with the success of the present title came people’s expectations for the next one to come along. People can’t wait for the launch of GTA VI but from what few scraps of information can be scavenged from the internet, the next installment is not releasing anytime before 2022 according to the YouTube channel The Know.
Owing to the massive success of its GTA V title, it only makes sense for the developer to make another game. Though that does not mean that the studio won’t make all the profit it can from the present title. And with Rockstar studios busy with games like the Red Dead Redemption 2 which is set to release in October this year, it seems the rumors of the next GTA title taking a while is true.
The profit graph for the company also has the online counterpart of the GTA V to thank for. And Rockstar Studios has been consistently providing new content for the players to keep the profits coming in. And this may also be a contributing reason to why GTA VI has take the backseat.
If the 2022 timeline for GTA VI is to taken seriously, this puts a nine-year difference between it and GTA V which was released in 2013. This is the longest gap between any GTA titles ever, and the reason would be because the GTA V title is so successful that it made Rockstar Game $90 million since day one. The other reason might also be that the studio has to produce a game that is better than GTA V, which is no mean task and the studio must be taking its time to make it perfect.
