Fans of the famous “Grand Theft Auto” franchise by Rockstar Games are awaiting a release update of “Grand Theft Auto 6” or “GTA 6”. However, they could be up for a disappointment as the sixth edition of the multi-million dollar budget game could be cancelled.
Rumors and speculations suggest that Rockstar Games want to currently focus on “Grand Theft Auto 5”, given its immense success, even after 3 years from its release in 2013. Other news reports are claiming that the huge budget required to develop “GTA 6” could be too much for the company to handle, according to GAMENGUIDE.
It is being rumored that “GTA 6” if made, will be available in Virtual Reality (VR) mode. This, along with next generation graphics and features will make the game super expensive to produce. However, expense won’t be a huge issue for Rockstar Games given the popularity and success of the franchise.
“GTA 5” was developed with a budget of $265 million and was able to rake in a total of over $800 million in just 24 hours from its release date. With the hype of “GTA 6” increasing at an alarming rate, developing the game at a huge budget won’t be a problem and the company will easily be able to make profit from the game, as reported by Neurogadget.
There could be some encouragement for the fans who are waiting for a “GTA 6” release date though. Leslie Benzies, producer of the game recently revealed some information at a press conference, which will be enough to re-ignite the imagination of the crazy admirers.
“We’ve got about 45 years’ worth of ideas we want to do. We don’t know what ‘GTA VI’ will be, but we’ve got some ideas” Benzies said, according to ValueWalk.
Certain reports are claiming that “GTA 6” if released, will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One S and PC. The rumored year is stated to be 2018, given that Rockstar Games generally take 5 years between their “Grand Theft Auto” games.
