Last night we were on a date with the earnings call of Take Two, the parent company and publisher of Grand Theft Auto 6. For the first time, the next game in the series was mentioned in the company’s statement after Rockstar only talked about it indirectly last year.
However, T2 did not mention the full name of the game other than to mention that the development of the next Grand Theft Auto is proceeding smoothly. But what drew more attention is the issuance plan that the company is preparing for during the next fiscal year 2024-2025.
T2 stated that it is in the process of issuing more than 16 different titles during the next fiscal year, which starts from April 1, 2024 and ends on March 31, 2025. Among the many titles that will be issued during that period, one of the titles was described as a “big awaited title.” From one of the company’s top-tier developers.
There is no doubt that this great expected title is Grand Theft Auto 6, as it is the most anticipated title for several years, and there is no doubt about that. As for the first-class developer, there is also no doubt that it is “Rockstar”, which is responsible for the large profitable T2 titles.
Well, some may see that these data are somewhat insufficient, so let us turn to the other evidence, which is the revenue budget that T2 expects during the next fiscal year.
Through the official statement, the company expects to raise in excess of 8 billion Dollars during the fiscal year 2024-2025. Returning to the last fiscal years, we find that the revenue framework for T2 revolves around the 3 billion only. And to make it jump to nearly three times that number, there must be a strong address that can push profits to this high level.
This takes us directly once again to Grand Theft Auto 6, which will be the only weapon capable of making the company reach this goal.
This makes us firmly believe that the game will be released between April 1, 2024 and March 31, 2025. But let’s narrow this time period to the expected release date of the game more by studying previous Rockstar game releases.
GTA 5 was released for the first time on PlayStation 3 and Xbox One in September (9) of 2013. As for the game Red Dead Redemption 2, it was released in October (10) of 2018.
With the release dates of previous big Rockstar games, it appears that the company is targeting the holiday season and Western holidays in order to release its titles. So this can make us expect Grand Theft Auto 6 to be released in the same period.
The game can target the period between September (9) and October (10) of next year 2024. While we exclude that they will be released at a date after December (12) of next year. This is because the last quarter of the next fiscal year, which comes in the period between December and March, during which the company’s financial achievements are studied during the fiscal year that is about to end, as companies generally avoid issuing any of their big titles during that period.
The release of the GTA 6 game during the fourth quarter of next year 2024 is highly expected, as it targets the holiday season, which witnesses a great demand for the purchase of entertainment resources, including video games that occupy a large part of it.
So, the next Rockstar game is about a year away from the release date, and this takes us to the next step that we expect the company to take soon, which is the first reveal of the game, which precedes the full disclosure, perhaps by 6 months at most. And if the plan is going in this way, the Grand Theft Auto 6 game must be revealed soon, a year after the release date.
Therefore, in addition to the expectations of many specialists and media professionals, we expect that the GTA 6 game will be revealed before the end of this year 2023. The first disclosure is usually through a short video or perhaps a photo through Rockstar’s official accounts on social media platforms. And in the event that Rockstar wants to be generous with its fans, who have waited all these years, it can put a post containing more details and pictures from inside the game on its official blog on the Internet.
