Why is GTA 6 Taking so Long?

 


The Grand Theft Auto franchise has always been the definition of massive open world games. I spent most of childhood playing Grand Theft Auto Vice City and I am sure most of you did too. Rockstar has never backed off from its promise to deliver the best games every once in a while. GTA 5, being the latest addition to the franchise, has been out and around for almost a year now and it’s still ruling the entire gaming market.

Although, I would want nothing more than playing GTA 5 all day long on my PC, but I just can’t help but wonder like the rest of you, “why is GTA 6 taking so long?”

GTA 5 was released all the way back in 2013 and it’s been 8 years of waiting for the new GTA title. It’s not like Rockstar has been sitting idle since, as Red Dead Redemption 2 was a masterpiece released shortly after. But let’s face it, one of reasons why GTA 6 is taking so long is due to the massive popularity and ever growing player-base of GTA Online. Rockstar has been more pro-active in introducing new features like Heists that you can pull off with a random team or new vehicles that you can buy.

GTA 5 Online Is still selling Like Hotcakes. It's fantastic, because it doesn't just make money from the initial purchase; there's even the micro transaction in GTA Online, and the player base in GTA 5 and GTA Online is insane. It has one of the largest player bases in gaming history, and in all of gaming history. Right now, a seven-year-old game is competing with Fortnite and PUBG in terms of player base, and that, in my opinion, is not a good thing.

And look, we all know GTA 6 is coming, it's an inevitability. Can you really believe they won't make GTA 6? Really, if they wanted to, they could all sit back and reap the benefits of GTA 5 without having to worry about anything and it looks like they are but one thing that makes me want to give them the time they need is what happened to Cyberpunk 2077. I can wait a few more months, maybe even a couple more years if I have to, but one thing I can’t do is see something similar happen to GTA 6, which would be a total disaster for every gamer out there. So, yeah GTA 6 is coming, slowly but surely, miracles take time my friend!
