Everyone’s anxiously waiting for new information regarding Grand Theft Auto 6. A couple of years passed since the last game in the series was released and fans are waiting for the next installment. However, we have some bad news for you.
The most popular belief was that Grand Theft Auto 6 was going to be released in 2020. At the end of 2018 Rockstar released Red Dead Redemption 2 and it appeared that the studio is finally ready to focus on developing Grand Theft Auto 6. However, it appears that we might have to wait for even more for the game. While this delay might be hard to explain at first, Rockstar might have its reasons for postponing the launch.
The huge success of Grand Theft Auto 5
Grand Theft Auto 5 was a hit and its success exceeded even the expectations of Rockstar. Gamers are already viewing it as a classic and this might be exactly the reason why the studio is delaying Grand Theft Auto 6. First of all, GTA 5 can still be capitalized. As an example, Rockstar did release GTA Online.
More than that, Grand Theft Auto 5 continues to sell well. Numerous video games are released every year and the new ones usually take over the charts. However, there is something special when it comes to Grand Theft Auto 5. The game remained in top 20 ever since it was released, which is not something that we see often when it comes to a video game.
Grand Theft Auto 5 earned 6$ billion and more than 100 million units were sold. This also puts a lot of pressure on Grand Theft Auto 6. The next game in the series must be flawless as our expectations are incredibly high. Rockstar might choose to take more time in order to make sure that the upcoming game will be a perfect one.
