GTA 6 is the most anticipated upcoming game release.
GTA V released in 2013 and with September about to sign off, we’re 10 years without a new GTA.
Rockstar is yet to release or even tease a GTA 6 trailer but it is well due and we might just get one soon.
But why this delay?
Why is GTA 6 delayed?
Rockstar has worked hard to become one of the most successful gaming studios on this planet.
With GTA V and GTA Online making history, Rockstar turned back to L.A. Noire, RDR 2, RD Online, and the GTA facelift, capping off 2021.
Early in 2022, Rockstar confirmed that a new GTA is in active development.
Rockstar’s been busy and only L.A. Noire failed to meet expectations or maybe it wasn’t supposed to in the first place.
So, GTA 6 is not delayed. Instead, it’s on schedule.
But why is Rockstar not putting out a GTA 6 official trailer yet? What are they waiting for?
GTA 6 Announcement Trailer
Till a few years ago, we’d wait for a new game release, and we’d get good games releasing every odd year.
GTA released in 97, 99, 2001, 2002 and 2004 (GTA San Andreas).
Then GTA IV released in 2008 and GTA V in 2013.
Now, a 10-year gap to a new GTA is questionable. But GTA V was already the pinnacle of video gaming back then, based on the available tech, mech and budget.
Rockstar didn’t know GTA V would go on to become one of the top 3 highest-selling video games ever, the other two being Minecraft and Tetris. It only made sense to take a break from GTA instead of overdoing it and devaluing the franchise.
All’s good but a GTA 6 trailer is well overdue.
The only reason why Rockstar’s yet to release a GTA VI teaser or the likes – Starfield.
Bethesda has done it with Starfield and Rockstar finally has stiff competition.
Grand Theft Auto was always the best pastime casual gaming experience around. Bethesda may have ruined the party.
Is Rockstar making some final changes to GTA 6 to stay in the competition?
That is speculation but a sound one.
Bottomline – we should be getting a GTA 6 trailer or at least a teaser well within 2023. Whether the game is released in 2024 or another year down, Rockstar can keep on adding more teasers till an official release date for GTA 6. Until then, maybe play Starfield?
