It’s now been 10 years since Grand Theft Auto 5 was released and became the iconic video game known and loved around the world. It was released in September 2013 and gained widespread acclaim from critics and gamers. It got an amazing Metacritic rating of 97%, becoming one of the greatest video games ever. The game was good enough to get praise as a genre-defining achievement in the gaming world.
Grand Theft Auto 5 Turned 10
Grand Theft Auto 5 received many awards, including Game of the Year. A decade has passed since GTA 5, and fans are still waiting for the next game in the franchise. There is real impatience regarding GTA 6, and developer Rockstar has remained quiet about whether another game is even in the works. Social media has been full of rumors and leaks, but no news has come from Rockstar or Take-Two Interactive.
One recent rumor was about how GTA 6 would have 400 hours of gameplay and video content, and one speculated that the game would cost $150 upon release. Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar, has stated that it was ready to push the pricing boundaries, and CEO Strauss Zelnick said consumers have not shown much resistance to games costing $70, showing they were willing to invest in quality titles.
No Grand Theft Auto 6 Yet
Despite the wishes of fans and the supposed leaks, Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive have remained silent about GTA 6. Fans will certainly continue to demand the next installment in the franchise despite there being no official release date or even an announcement. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto 5 continues to be one of the best games of all time. This is so even after a decade since its release.
So far, the gaming community can only hope Rockstar will break its silence soon and give them some insight into the future of their legendary franchise, but the silence hopefully indicates that something is brewing at the studio.
