The next Grand Theft Auto is officially in development, or at least it was announced as such earlier this year, but if rumors are to be believed then it has actually been in development for even longer. Nevertheless, after its announcement Take Two has now commented on how the new title will elevate the series, and industry, as a whole.
The GTA series has always been pretty popular, but Grand Theft Auto 6 will likely be the biggest one yet. We still don’t know exactly when it will launch (though 2023-2024 is a rumored window), but Take 2 seems pretty confident about it after a recent financial update, and reiterate development is in full swing:
Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Interactive, said: “with development of the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series well underway, the Rockstar Games team is determined to once again set creative benchmarks for the series, our industry, and for all entertainment, just as the label has done with every one of their frontline releases.”
There’s a lot of interpretations that can be made about that comment, but it’s likely just to reinstate confidence after a recent report claimed that GTA 6 would include a female protagonist and be set in Miami. Though with how far Rockstar has pushed technology in their previous titles, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the next GTA game will have some impact on the entertainment industry as a whole.
