In case you were wondering where the popular game franchise ?Grand Theft Auto (GTA)? went, don?t worry, they?re still in safe hands. We know that fans have also been asking on when the next installment of the GTA series will come, so to keep your sanity in check while waiting for Grand Theft Auto 6, here are some of the latest news and updates:
Rockstar games and perfection
Take-Two Interactive shared some information regarding why their Rockstar division isn?t keen on constantly release annual installments of their popular games, particularly Grand Theft Auto. According to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, they operate a specific business model that gives them the effect of gaining more customers while having more time to produce ?the best possible product? they can offer.
?The market asks us, ?Why don?t you annualize your titles?? We think with the non-sports titles, we are better served to create anticipation and demand,? Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick explained. ?On the one hand to rest the title and on the hand to have the highest quality in the market, which takes time,? he added. ?You can?t do that annually.?
So to better understand Zelnick?s words, it comes down to three basic words: Quality over quantity. ?What we would like to do is be able to have enough hit intellectual properties in any given year, whether we have Title A or Title B, is not the issue,? Zelnick said. ?We?ll have a handful of really great franchises and new intellectual properties that together really have the economic impact of an annualized business without detriments of an annualized business.?
Grand Theft Auto 6 on the works?
So where does the next Grand Theft Auto series come in? Although Zelnick didn?t announce any news regarding new Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead Redemption games, he referred to them as ?permanent? franchises. This could of course entail another amazing Grand Theft Auto story on the works.
And Rockstar games, the idea behind the GTA franchise, with all their exciting ideas just waiting to come out, is a strategic developer and might have plans to release GTA 6 around 2018. So it will surely be a while before we see another Grand Theft Auto game but rest assured that it?s worth the wait.
