Sensational revelations are emerging from the documents provided by Microsoft and Sony regarding the much-discussed acquisition of Activision-Blizzard. If the PlayStation house has revealed the number of Xbox Game Pass subscribers, the Redmond giant has apparently revealed the year in which the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI will be released.
As you can read in the excerpt that we have reported at the bottom of the news, Microsoft has unveiled in advance the year in which Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games plan to launch GTA 6. Although publisher and developer have not unbuttoned the subject and must in fact still show official material related to the new chapter of the open world series, Microsoft states that “The highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to be released in 2024”.
Apparently the title has been cited by the company for its shooter elements, also present in the Red Dead Redemption series. Microsoft points out that the two franchises, among the most successful ever in the gaming sector, are available on multiple platforms, including the PlayStation consoles. In this way, it seems that Microsoft wanted to highlight that, apart from the Call of Duty series, other shooter series or with shooter elements will continue to exist on Sony platforms in the years to come. In any case, Microsoft has already specified that Call of Duty will not become Xbox exclusive and will continue to come out elsewhere, probably also on Nintendo Switch.
Naturally, the development of GTA 6 is still ongoing, and Rockstar’s plans – should they match Microsoft’s forecast – could vary considerably over the next few months, especially when we consider how ambitious and vast the next installment of the series will be.
