For the longest time, the entire community of GTA fans was sure about the fact that Rockstar Games has started the development process of Grand Theft Auto 6.
Despite rumors, unconfirmed news and speculations about the game pouring in for a long time, the gaming publisher refrained from confirming the existence of GTA 6. This left a few fans wondering whether Rockstar was planning to delay its release or put the project on hold for some time.
Putting all speculations to rest, Rockstar Games has finally confirmed that they are working on Grand Theft Auto 6. In a new Grand Theft Auto community update, Rockstar Games stated that it was grateful to fans for giving Grand Theft Auto V a lot of love and ensuring that it has a long shelf-life. GTA V, which was launched way back in 2013, continues to be popular among gamers.
Justifying the delay behind the GTA 6 announcement, the gaming company said that whenever they work on a new game, they try to ensure that it is better than the earlier games in the series and that’s why it takes a while for them to work on some details around it and make an official announcement. The company, as stated by the officials, is very conscious of the expectations of the fans and tries its best to ensure that they are happy with the final product.
Rockstar Games has confirmed that it is ‘actively’ working towards developing ‘the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto franchise’ and stated that fans will get a lot of interesting updates pertaining to the game in the near future. As per the team, the official details related to the game will be shared on Rockstar Games’ newswire.
Many of you have been asking about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series.
