There has been an important development regarding GTA 6, which the video game world has been waiting for years. Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, the developer of the GTA series, made an important statement that the video game community made inferences about GTA 6 during the financial situation announcement for the first quarter of 2023.
In the statements made by Take-Two Interactive, it was stated that the annual earnings were recorded as $ 5.3 billion. This figure has been reached thanks to the contributions of Zynga.
This statement, of course, did not mean anything for GTA 6. However, when you look at the company’s forecasts for the future, it is not difficult to understand that there is a reference to GTA 6.
Take-Two Expects $8 Billion in Net Income Next Year
In the earnings report announcement, it was stated that the company expects a net income of $8 billion for the following year. This explanation is the source of the conclusions about GTA 6. Because the company’s earnings of $ 8 billion next year mean that revenues will increase by more than 50 percent in one year.
The publisher’s regular annual net income hovers around $3 billion. Therefore, in order for Take-Two Interactive to reach its targeted figures, it will have to make important purchases, almost double the games it has released in the past, or launch the long-awaited GTA 6 by the fans of the series.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say the only brand that can bring 3 billion dollars in extra income to the company in one year is estimated to be Grand Theft Auto VI.
In summary, we can say that Take-Two plans to launch Grand Theft Auto 6 in the next year and generate 3 billion dollars in revenue, at least in the first year.
Meanwhile, Take-Two Interactive also explained the reason for its expectation of a 50 percent increase in revenues. The statement said it relied on an “incredibly robust project pipeline”. In other words, the company is very confident in the new games it has released or will release. It looks like GTA 6 will start filling Take-Two’s coffers next year…
The previous game of the series, GTA 5, was released in 2013.
