When Take-Two Interactive just lately made a deal to buy mobile game company Zynga for $12.7 billion, it was introduced with a press release that included a piece on “Strategic Rationale and Stockholder Value Creation”. Within that was the observe, “Looking forward, the mixed firm is predicted to ship a 14% compound annual progress fee… over the three-year interval from Take-Two’s Fiscal Years 2021 by way of 2024.”
According to 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 confidence to put out such a powerful steering; we imagine 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 likely GTA 6 launch in FY24.” If true, that would put the Grand Theft Auto 6 launch date anyplace between the starting of April 2023 and the finish of March 2024.
Back in 2020, Take-Two’s financials indicated its advertising and marketing spend would double in FY2024, which was (*6*) as suggesting the identical launch window for GTA 6. A rep for the writer denied it, nonetheless, saying that the determine represented advertising and marketing commitments to third-party firms fairly than inner studios like Rockstar.
Whenever GTA 6 does come out, we could effectively have to wait just a little longer for a PC model, as was the case with GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. Although our personal Chris Livingston contributed to our listing of bold predictions for 2022 by not solely suggesting that 2023, a full decade after GTA 5’s preliminary launch, can be the good time to drop a trailer asserting GTA 6, however that it will come out on PC and console concurrently. I suppose they do have that Rockstar Launcher for a cause.
