GTA 5 is one of the most successful video games in the history of the gaming industry. It generated billions of dollars in revenue within a few days of its release in 2013. It received widespread critical acclaim and consistently remained among the best-selling video games for years. The game’s success also fueled enthusiasm among fans for the next entry in the series.
Rockstar Games is celebrating the 10th anniversary of GTA 5, and fans have high expectations for a significant announcement regarding GTA 6. However, the studio left fans disappointed by focusing on providing new content for GTA Online.
Instead of unveiling any information about GTA 6, the studio marked the anniversary by announcing additions to GTA Online. These additions included outfits inspired by the iconic characters from GTA 5.
Additionally, they offered a 4x bonus on certain missions. This approach gave the impression that the studio treated the anniversary as a routine event, focusing on in-game content updates rather than a major reveal, which left many fans feeling underwhelmed.
Rockstar Games announced this new content for GTA Online on Twitter on September 14th, and many fans replied to this tweet asking about GTA 6. One Twitter user inquired with anticipation whether they could expect a trailer for GTA 6 this Sunday. Another wrote that it’s time for some GTA 6 news.
These tweets highlight the strong desire within the gaming community for updates on highly anticipated game releases. They also reflect the sentiments of many fans who were eagerly awaiting news about GTA 6 and felt let down by the absence of any substantial announcement during the anniversary celebration.
Nevertheless, the somewhat restrained nature of the anniversary celebration could be a calculated move by the studio. It seems designed to retain the gaming community’s attention on their forthcoming projects.
There is a subtle indication that GTA 6 is likely to be released by early 2025 at the latest. Fans may get a revelation of the game soon.
