Take-Two CEO: More GTA 6 News Will Be Shared on Rockstar’s Schedule

Grand Theft Auto 6 has been officially announced, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to start seeing a wave of new info just yet. Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick says that the decision to reveal more information lies firmly with Rockstar Games.

Speaking to IGN ahead of Take-Twos quarterly financials, Zelnick says that its labels “always decide when and how to announce their upcoming products,” including the recent GTA 6 confirmation. Zelnick adds, “Obviously people need to stay tuned, a lot more information to be shared and Rockstar will do so in time.”

Given the secret nature of the game, Zelnick would not divulge any specific details. However, as CEO the goal for the next Grand Theft Auto is to build on the success of Grand Theft Auto 5, which is one of the best-selling games of all time. This has set a high bar for Rockstar to clear.

“Each iteration for all of our successful franchises at this company, all of them, has always done better than the one before,” Zelnick says. “I’m not saying that’ll happen again, I’m not saying that’s guaranteed, but that’s certainly our goal.”

With 160 million worldwide sales, this is certainly a big lift for Rockstar. But at the same time, Grand Theft 5 has been out for nearly nine years, so there’s no telling how Grand Theft Auto 6 could do in the same timeframe.

Grand Theft Auto 5 has found tremendous success thanks to Grand Theft Auto Online. The online multiplayer mode has kept GTA 5 going strong for nearly nine years, but the fans are eagerly anticipating a new Grand Theft Auto game.

And while Rockstar’s GTA 6 confirmation is a start, there’s still a lot we don’t know. Current reports suggest Grand Theft Auto 6 might not arrive until 20245 or 2025, and that it may be smaller, size-wise than GTA 5 with plans to grow the game post-launch.

Fans are so eager for new info, they’re even looking at the recently released GTA Trilogy for clues.
