New twist in the case of the release of GTA 6: after the latest rumors counting for 2025, an analyst now claims that the game will be available much earlier. By studying the statements of Take Two, parent company of Rockstar, about its next financial results, he concludes that the title could be released as early as next year.
Since time, the release date of GTA 6 has become a recurring joke among players, just like the hypothetical Half-Life 3 or the multiple ports of Skyrim. One thing is certain, the game is well and truly in development. But from there to knowing when it will be available, is another matter. About this rumors say everything and its opposite.
According to the latest news, we will have to wait until 2025 to be able to get our hands on the title, ie 12 years after the release of GTA 5. A relatively long period of time, we will agree, especially since the first leaks were expected to be for 2023. Nevertheless, all hope is not yet lost. Indeed, an analyst at Jefferies Group puts the forecasts for next year back on the table.
GTA 6 in 2023? It is not impossible
Last Monday, Take Two announced it had bought Zynga, an American development studio, for $ 12.7 billion. Following this, the firm said it plans 14% growth by 2024. One might therefore believe that this figure will be the result of the transaction, but for the analyst, it would not be enough. “There are only a handful of titles that can provide management with confidence”.
In other words, “At least one Rockstar game should be released” in fiscal year 2024. As you can see, there’s a good chance this game will be GTA 6. Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz agrees. As a reminder, the 2024 fiscal year will run from April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024. So here is a plausible window of fire for the launch of the mastodon.
On the same topic: GTA 6 probably won’t be available on Xbox Game Pass when it’s released
Still not convinced? Doug Creutz points out that in 2011, Take Two announced the release of GTA 5 for the end of 2012, following the publication of its forecasts for the coming fiscal year. When its targets waned, the release was postponed until the following year. GTA 5 is well released in 2023. “So yes, there is absolutely a precedent”, he concludes.
