Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA 6) is one of the most awaited games currently, and it seems its release won’t be happening anytime soon. Rockstar has a pretty valid reason on why it’s not in a hurry to release the GTA 6.
Rockstar Games usually releases a Grand Theft Auto game every five years.With that trend set, GTA VI should be out by 2018. However, it seems that it may take longer than that with the earliest possibility being 2020.
Rockstar Games and GTA Online
Rockstar Games developed GTA V way back in 2013. Interestingly, the developer has yet to release a DLC pack for the fifth GTA installment. By now, Rockstar would have dropped clues about the GTA game but surprising it hasn’t yet.
Many are under the assumption that the upcoming GTA 6 will have some virtual reality (VR) feature attached to it which is the cause for the delay, according to Frag Hero. Others pointed out the costs for developing the GTA 6 is going to cost by as much as half billion dollars. However, reports now reveal the actual reason for this seemingly lack of news from the developer, the reason being GTA Online. It seems the online multiplayer game is funneling more than $700 million to the developer and the revenue stream is not slowing down anytime soon.
So players desperately waiting for the release of GTA 6 should blame the massive success of GTA Online. Rockstar could hardly be blamed for shelving its GTA 6 project for the moment. The online game is still expanding with plans set to add more features and content.
GTA VI Possible Release Date
GTA Online is our only make do for now while waiting for the upcoming GTA 6. Judging by the online game’s success, it’s safe to say that the sixth GTA installment could also take longer than 2020 before its release.
