When Take-Two Interactive just lately made a deal to purchase cell sport firm Zynga for $12.7 billion, it was introduced with a press launch that included a piece on “Strategic Rationale and Stockholder Worth Creation”. Inside that was the notice, “Wanting forward, the mixed firm is anticipated to ship a 14% compound annual development price… over the three-year interval from Take-Two’s Fiscal Years 2021 by way of 2024.”
Based on an analyst from funding banking agency Jefferies, quoted by Stephen Totilo of Axios, “there are solely a handful of titles that may…present administration with the arrogance to place out such a robust steerage; we consider there’s no less than one Rockstar IP set to be launched by FY24”. That was adopted up by a quote from analysis analyst Doug Creutz of Cowen, who thinks this factors to “a possible GTA 6 launch in FY24.” If true, that might put the Grand Theft Auto 6 launch date anyplace between the start of April 2023 and the tip of March 2024.
Again in 2020, Take-Two’s financials indicated its advertising spend would double in FY2024, which was interpreted by an analyst on the time as suggesting the identical launch window for GTA 6. A rep for the writer denied it, nonetheless, saying that the determine represented advertising commitments to third-party corporations somewhat than inside studios like Rockstar.
Every time GTA 6 does come out, we could properly have to attend a little bit longer for a PC model, as was the case with GTA 5 and Pink Lifeless Redemption 2. Though our personal Chris Livingston contributed to our checklist of daring predictions for 2022 by not solely suggesting that 2023, a full decade after GTA 5’s preliminary launch, could be the proper time to drop a trailer asserting GTA 6, however that it could come out on PC and console concurrently. I assume they do have that Rockstar Launcher for a purpose.
