Every gamer is wondering when GTA 6 will be released. However, while there is nothing official about GTA 6 yet, GTA 5 broke a new record.
Then Why GTA 6 Isn’t Coming? The 8-Year-Old GTA 5 has surpassed the 150 million sales threshold and continues to grow rapidly.
8-Year-Old GTA 5 Breaks 150 Million Sales Bar
GTA 5, which forced the top of the world’s most popular games lists and provided a huge income to Rockstar, exceeded 150 million sales. Although it has reached the age of 8, the game, which has reached this sale, will apparently go much further.
GTA 5, one of Rockstar’s games that redefines the standards in the game world, has been active since its release and was frequently supported with updates. The game, which still retains the vitality of the first day, is still at the top of the list of most played games after 8 years.
Although the game’s physics, catchy main characters, missions and many more are memorable, we can give most of this success to the online part of the game. GTA 5 managed to sell 150 million copies with the contribution of its online mode, which kept the first day’s liveliness on. The announcements made by Rockstar in the past indicate that the game will not be satisfied with this number.
Mostly, games make their debut, create excitement, are played and doomed to fall behind as time passes. But we can say that GTA 5 misunderstood this issue. Because despite all the time that has passed, the game both reaches incredible sales and its online part continues to develop.
The sales data of GTA 5 was last shared as 145 million copies 3 months ago. The release of GTA Online as a separate game and the new GTA 5 version developed for the next generation PlayStation and Xbox consoles will increase these numbers much higher.
With GTA 5 reaching 150 million sales, the entire GTA series has sold 350 million copies. In addition to GTA, Rockstar’s other memorable series, Red Dead Redemption, sold close to 60 million copies in the series. The share of Red Dead Redemption 2 in these sales is 38 million.
GTA 5, which has recently received the Los Santos Tuners update, will reach larger numbers according to the data. You can share your thoughts about the game in the comments section.
Claims about GTA 6 are getting stronger: We will wait at least 3 more years
Jason Schreier from Bloomberg recently confirmed the allegations made about GTA 6. In the claims made by Tom Hendersen, it was stated that the game would be released around 2024 or 2025.
In one of our content that we shared with you last week, we talked about some of the claims about GTA 6. The source of these claims was Tom Hendersen, who leaked mostly games like Battlefield and Call of Duty. According to the statements made by Hendersen, GTA 6; It would be released around 2024 or 2025, featured a female character, and set in present-day Vice City.
Now, there has been a new development regarding the allegations made by Tom Hendersen. Jason Schreier of Bloomberg confirmed Hendersen’s claims in a statement on Twitter. Schreier said that Hendersen’s claims coincided with what he heard. Unfortunately, this development seems to annoy gamers who want to meet GTA 6 as soon as possible.
Rockstar Games released GTA 5, the last game in the GTA series, in 2013. Looking at the company’s time cycle between GTA games, we expected GTA 6 to be released in 2020 or 2021. However, the statements made by both Hendersen and Schreier reveal that GTA 6 can stay in 2024 or 2025. This means that for the first time in its history, Rockstar may have included Red Dead Redemption 2 in the time loop of the GTA series.
By the way, Jason Schreier’s claims are not limited to this. According to the Bloomberg author, the game is still in development. In addition, the map of GTA 6 will have a structure that will expand over time, just as Hendersen said. Although these developments are good, the fact that 30-year-old GTA fans like me are relatively old and their interest in games is lost when this game comes out seems to bother many people.
