According to a report by Bloomberg, Rockstar Games is planning to release Grand Theft Auto VI during this week, in celebration of Rockstar Games’ 25th anniversary. Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to be one of the most highly-anticipated games among both gamers and investors at the moment. This anticipation stems from the massive success of its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto V, which has sold over 185 million copies since its release in 2013, making it the second best-selling game of all time, just behind Minecraft.
In the past few years, Rockstar has been working on improving its organizational culture and work-life balance, after employees expressed fatigue during the development of Red Dead Redemption 2 in 2018. Last year, hackers leaked hours-long footage of Grand Theft Auto VI, which Rockstar claimed was a network breach, and the company will officially launch the game when it is ready. Following that, two teenagers in the United Kingdom were sentenced for hacking into the system.
Based on the leaked video of the new Grand Theft Auto installment, the game is set in the fictional city of Miami. The main characters are a male and a female, as reported by Bloomberg. The parent company of Rockstar Games, Take-Two Interactive Software, is scheduled to report its financial results on Wednesday.
TLDR: Rockstar Games is preparing to release Grand Theft Auto VI to commemorate their 25th anniversary. With the enormous success of Grand Theft Auto V, expectations are high for the new installment. A leaked video showcased the game’s Miami setting and two main characters. Take-Two Interactive Software, the parent company of Rockstar Games, will report its financial results on Wednesday.
