The long-awaited news regarding the next Grand Theft Auto has finally been confirmed by Rockstar Games and players around the world will only have a few weeks to wait before the first trailer is officially released to the public. Here is everything we know about Rockstar Games Confirm GTA VI.
In Autumn 2022, several leakers were able to post clips and images regarding the development stages of GTA VI but despite some critics claiming these were “false”, Rockstar themselves confirmed that the leaks were genuine and that work for the newest instalment in the franchise was firmly underway. However, despite various interviews, Rockstar Games maintained their silence when it came to revealing any further information, until Wednesday morning when the company released a series of social media updates on their respective platforms to confirm the news.
Upon its release in 2013, Grand Theft Auto V broke several world records and to date is one of the biggest-selling video games of all time. In fact, according to a Wikipedia article, GTA V has currently sold 185,000,000 copies worldwide which places it second on the list, only beaten by Minecraft. Similarly, GTA V sold over 150 million more copies than the franchise’s previous instalment (GTA IV) and has officially made over $7 billion since its release a decade ago.
December 2023 will mark Rockstar Games’ 25th anniversary since it was officially founded (1998) and to celebrate, the company released a series of tweets whilst waiting until the very end to give players the news everyone had been highly anticipating. They did this by posting the following message…
’Next month marks the 25th anniversary of Rockstar Games. Thanks to the incredible support of our players worldwide, we have had the opportunity to create games we are truly passionate about.
’Without you, none of this would be possible and we are so grateful to all of you for sharing this journey with us.
’In 1998, Rockstar Games was founded on the idea that video games could come to be as essential to culture as any other form of entertainment and we hope that we have created games you love in our efforts to be part of that evolution.
’We are very excited to let you know that in early December, we will release the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto. We look forward to many more years of sharing these experiences with all of you. Thank You, Sam Houser.’
