The next production of Rockstar Games, GTA 6, might not come out until 2024 or 2025 due to Covid-19, but also the well-being of the company’s employees.
Rockstar confirms GTA 6 “right person” hasn’t even been born yet
The executives of Rockstar Games recently revealed that the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) game is still happening, but not right away.
“You guys are just going to have to recalibrate your expectations,” said Sam Houser, president of Rockstar Games, to reporters. “Of course everyone wants the game as soon as we can finish it, but we also have to make sure that it is bursting with fresh innovations and youthful energy. That’s why we firmly believe that the right person to lead this project hasn’t even been born yet. Maybe soon, we don’t know.”
Infact, according to several insiders and journalists, the release date of the 6th game in the GTA series would rather be around 2024 or even 2025. This extended period is explained by the fact that Rockstar Games wishes to put the well-being of its staff at the center of its concerns.
The studio had previously been the subject of investigations into the conditions of its employees. But that would not be the only reason, the global pandemic would have significantly slowed the production of the game and the company would be waiting for the fleet of new Sony and Microsoft consoles to develop.
On the other hand, GTA 6 will not be available on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, according to the VGC site. Ten years after the release of GTA 5, the wait is so intense and several rumors are circulating on social networks.
