When Take-Two Interactive lately made a deal to buy mobile game company Zynga for $12.7 billion, it was introduced with a press release that included a bit on “Strategic Rationale and Stockholder Worth Creation”. Inside that was the be aware, “Wanting forward, the mixed firm is predicted to ship a 14% compound annual progress charge… 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 boldness to place out such a powerful steerage; we consider there may be 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 probable GTA 6 launch in FY24.” If true, that would put the Grand Theft Auto 6 launch date wherever between the start of April 2023 and the tip of March 2024.
Again in 2020, Take-Two’s financials indicated its advertising and marketing spend would double in FY2024, which was interpreted by an analyst at the time as suggesting the identical launch window for GTA 6. A rep for the writer denied it, nevertheless, saying that the determine represented advertising and marketing commitments to third-party corporations relatively than inside studios like Rockstar.
Each time GTA 6 does come out, we could properly have to attend a bit longer for a PC model, as was the case with GTA 5 and Purple Useless Redemption 2. Though our personal Chris Livingston contributed to our record of bold predictions for 2022 by not solely suggesting that 2023, a full decade after GTA 5’s preliminary launch, can be the right time to drop a trailer saying GTA 6, however that it might come out on PC and console concurrently. I suppose they do have that Rockstar Launcher for a motive.
