GTA 6 may not come out any time soon and this harsh reality is exactly what’s killing fans. The five-year cycle between GTA 5 and GTA 6 seems to have been broken anyway by Rockstar. The uncertainty of fans not knowing when they will be to play the newest title of GTA is killing and frankly a little exhausting.
One of the reasons GTA was stalled for so long is because of Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 that came out last year and took the world by a storm. Rockstar dedicated most of the time and energy into doing GTA Online followed by RDR 2 in 2018. GTA Online was a major success followed by RDR2 and that’s put Rockstar into a diabolical situation. And because of GTA Online, RDR 2 was delayed by Rockstar. Rockstar gave many reasons for the RDR’s delay such as polishing the game model further etc. But the reality is Rockstar wanted to expand the reach of GTA Online. But here’s something, when GTA is announced by the fans, it is going to be a massive game.
If you may have read, the number of players playing RDR 2 multi-model has dropped, which means that Rockstar should seize the opportunity and launch GTA 6. Say if GTA 6 is launched in 2020, there are several platforms that the game can be released on. Rockstar can choose from PS5, Xbox Two, PC, and Google Stadia. Even PS4 and Xbox One can make it to the list. However many fans and industry analysts believe that GTA 6 won’t come out till 2021. Therefore the platforms aren’t that big of a discussion right now.
If Rockstar gives GTA an eight-year development cycle, our expectations will soar the Sky. Bully 2 is reported to be launched by Rockstar next. More as we have it.
