Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick made a statement in an interview that would delight players waiting for GTA 6 in an interview. Voicing that they are not afraid to enter new projects, Zelnick hinted that they would not expect GTA 5 to drop for the release of GTA 6.
Launched in 2013, GTA 5 has managed to become one of the most popular games in video game history. The game, which sells like bread and still has millions of active players, is still considered important by the developer company Rockstar Games. The company constantly renews the online mode of GTA 5 with the updates it brings to the game, so that players do not move away from GTA 5.
Although GTA 5 is still popular, it is now a 7-year game and players are looking forward to the release of the new member of the series. However, Rockstar Games has made no explanation about it so far. Some people even argue that GTA 6 should be forgotten while GTA 5 is still so popular. However, it was implied by the most authoritative name that GTA 6 could be introduced while GTA 5 was being played.
Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Interactive, the umbrella company of Rockstar Games, made important statements during a conference. While Zelnick’s statements do not give anything concrete about the new games of the companies under Take-Two Interactive, they implicitly contain very important details. Descriptions cause the popularity of GTA 5 to be thought that it cannot stop GTA 6.
“You are only a few minutes away from being defeated by your opponents.”
Zelnick says that everyone loves what they do and they take positions accordingly, but this is not an obstacle for new projects and he is not afraid of new projects because they are a few minutes away from being defeated by competing developers. According to Zelnick, this is something that is at the heart of the video game industry.
In fact, this policy of Zelnick is not a new attitude. The company has done similar things recently. The best example of this is undoubtedly “NBA 2K”. The company received unexpected attention after releasing the online version of NBA 2K. The company did not hesitate to bring “NBA 2K Online 2” to the players while the first game was still popular. Moreover, NBA 2K Online 2 has become more popular than the first game, while NBA 2K Online has not lost popularity.
We cannot deduce from Zelnick’s explanations that GTA 6 will be introduced soon. However, we can say that we will not have to wait for GTA 5 to be forgotten in the game libraries, at least for the introduction of GTA 6. While the company is targeting top-end hardware with GTA 6, GTA 5 can continue to offer pleasant moments to relatively weak hardware.
