Grand Theft Auto is one of the most popular game franchises in the world. San Andreas is a significant part of a gamer’s childhood. GTA V is now considered to be one of the best games ever made. Naturally, fans have been craving for the sixth instalment.
Rockstar Games have been very secretive about GTA 6. Still, there are several rumours and supposed leaks that may tell us something about the game.
If you have been wondering about its release, then you are not alone. We bring you all the information about the game from its release date to the effect of coronavirus on the market.
When Will GTA 6 Come To Market?
Industry analysts and experts suggest that GTA 6 will release in summer 2021. But only if there is an announcement from Rockstar by the end of March. If not, the release will be further delayed.
Darion Lowenstein, a former Rockstar Games employee, claimed in an interview with Daily Star that the company focuses on quality rather than the deadline. A claim that can be verified by looking at the quality of previous games.
The coronavirus outbreak has halted work all around the world. Rockstar Games would( and should) prefer the safety of their employees rather than hitting the deadline. So, fans should not be surprised if no announcement is made this year.
How Is Corona Virus Affecting The Market?
Rockstar Games is not the only company affected by the virus. Several companies have halted production of popular games until the situation gets better. The Electronic Entertainment Expo 2020 or the E3 2020 has been cancelled.
E3 is an annual event where developers and manufacturers present their products to retailers and journalists. Several gaming conferences have been cancelled or postponed all around the world. Companies like Nintendo and PlayStation are also facing the negative impact of the virus.
The virus has impacted almost every market. The gaming market is no exception. The delay in the release of GTA 6 will disappoint the fans. But the health of these talented developers is also important.
