The Grand Theft Auto legacy must continue as the fans are craving for it. Gaming life must continue even after the insanely popular title GTA 5, although many would say that the series reached its pinnacle in both fanbase and revenue due to its last game released way back in 2013. The online mode for GTA 5 (aka GTA Online) is receiving weekly updates, and the servers are almost always full. The parent game has sold over 110 million copies worldwide, and there’s no reason to believe that it will do worse anytime soon.
But you know how things go for technology in general and for gaming in particular: there’s always room for more interesting stuff. The GTA fans know this very well, as they don’t hesitate to express their demands for the long-awaited GTA 6 title – they expect a larger and more diversified map, more enterable buildings, more customization options for the playable characters, and more.
GTA 6 will be more expensive than current-generation games
GTA 6 is expected to be launched in 2022, according to reliable sources. The developers decided to release GTA 5 as an enhanced version for both PS5 and Xbox Series X. This means that the good old game will be packed with technical improvements, visual upgrades, and more in order to be fully suitable for the hardware of the upcoming next-generation consoles.
While both the PS5 and Xbox Series X will represent major upgrades for the current-generation consoles, there are surprising plans up ahead. A new standalone version for GTA Online could also be under development, and it will be launched during the second half of 2022.
But the developers from 2K, who have the same parent company as Take-Two Interactive, has made it clear that NBA 2K21 will cost even more on the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. This is a significant hint that the same will be available for GTA 6 when it arrives on the market. The next Grand Theft Auto title will be more expensive than most people predicted.
Regardless of how much it will cost, GTA 6 has the most difficult mission from the Grand Theft Auto history: to make the fans forget about GTA 5.
