Rockstar has reiterated that development on the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto 6 is “well underway,” according to Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick during the company’s most recent financial results report.
Later in the report, Zelnick added that Rockstar would be “determined to once again set creative benchmarks for the series, our industry, and for all entertainment, just as the label has done with every one of their frontline releases.”
At this stage, Rockstar has kept quiet on any official details for GTA 6. However, in support of Zelnick’s earlier statement that development is underway, GameLuster recently reported that Rockstar had made a big hiring push for the next game – with particular focus on GTA 6. 70 vacancies had been recently posted within a 24-hour timeframe, with more than 200 positions waiting to be filled.
A leading theory connected to GTA 6 suggests that for the first time in Rockstar’s history – the title could be led by a female protagonist – reportedly inspired by Bonnie and Clyde. Rockstar are also in the midst of a workplace overhaul – which includes the removal of transphobic jokes from a GTA V re-release and the discreet cancellation of an online mode titled Cops ’n’ Crooks.
There’ve even been details of changes made within the company to improve working conditions, from the “restructuring of the design department and a pledge to keep overtime under control.”
GTA V is available on a range of platforms – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Elsewhere, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is available across all major platforms.
