Fans have been waiting for some accurate news about the launch of GTA 6. Over the last few years we have come across countless rumors related to the game, but so far none have been denied or confirmed by Rockstar Games. But nevertheless, Take-two —The parent company of the franchise Grand Theft Auto– could have inadvertently revealed when the expected title would arrive.
But we are not talking about a leak or a data released by mistake ahead of time. According Axios, the novelty comes from the work of analysts who have scrutinized the company’s financial forecasts for the coming years. Thus, they would have concluded that we could see GTA 6 in the market before the end of March 2024.
Logically, we are facing information that must be taken with a grain of salt. The statement by equity specialists came after statements by Take-Two executives as part of the promotion of the Zynga purchase, announced earlier this week. The executives assure that the company will have a compound annual growth rate of 14% until 2024; and that is where the key point would reside to understand when the next game in the saga would arrive Grand Theft Auto.
The aforementioned report cites an analyst from Jefferies, a well-known financial services company, as one of those who has speculated that said growth will be tied to the launch of GTA 6. “There are only a handful of titles that can give management the confidence to release such strong guidance – we believe there is at least one Rockstar IP that will be released in fiscal 2024,” he said.
If we take into account that fiscal year 2024 runs from April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024, Take-Two would have a time window already defined for the output of GTA 6. Anyway, until said company or Rockstar Games make an official announcement, everything will be a simple speculation.
Take-Two could have hinted at the release date of GTA 6
The report of Axios also includes a tip from Cowen’s Doug Creutz, who anticipates Take-Two could enter about $ 9 billion in gaming-related transactions; a figure of such magnitude would be related to the launch of GTA 6 in fiscal year 2024, according to the analyst.
It is not the first time that specialists put the launch of GTA 6 in the period April 2023-March 2024. In May 2020, journalist Jeff Grubb, from VentureBeat, anticipated that same possibility; For this, it was based on a Take-Two document in which it informed that it would invest 89 million dollars in marketing for the mentioned period. Such an important amount, he indicated, was consistent with what could be expected from a new launch related to Grand Theft Auto.
For now, we will have to keep waiting. Bear in mind that other previous reports have pointed a little further, putting GTA 6 only on the market in 2025. Whatever the case, the possible (and expected) return to Vice City still requires a lot of patience from the public.
