While GTA 6 leaks have been coming to the fore regularly, Take-Two Interactive CEO states that it hasn’t created any impact on the company.
The current quarter didn’t prove to be hugely beneficial for Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games.
Its overall earnings were less than what the company leaders had expected them to be. Because of this, the company is taking some steps to bring down its cost of operations and carry out some other measures to ensure the company becomes stable again.

Some gaming experts are of the opinion that the large number of leaks related to Grand Theft Auto 6 is partly responsible for this. Early last year, Rockstar confirmed that the next iteration in the GTA franchise was in the works. Even before this announcement came through, leakers were coming up with some information or update pertaining to GTA 6 on a regular basis. After the announcement, leakers and insiders went on an overdrive and one stumbled upon a new GTA 6 news almost every day.
As per gaming experts, fans being bombarded with excessive information about GTA 6 in the last year hasn’t worked well for the company. They also believe that Rockstar staying silent on these rumors also worked against it.
