It’s been 5 years since Rockstar Games release the Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) and Grand Theft Auto Online and this year, on October 26, Rockstar is releasing Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) and the Read Dead Online public beta in November.
But could the release date of Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) be affected by the release of Red Dead Redemption 2(RDR2)?
Knowing the huge success that GTA Online and GTA 5 still has in the present; Rockstar should do further planning and analyze more the GTA 6 release date. Up to this day, GTA Online proves to be a massive success, with its base game still selling well so there is no reason for a new GTA game anytime soon.
However, assuming already the success that Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2 Online will have, the company is unlikely to launch GTA 6 turning each of them in rivals.
It is fair to say, that there is a possibility that RDR2’ success will not have anything to do with GTA 6 release. Fans made speculation that in this case Rockstar plans to launch the GTA 6 on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two platform. Both of these two gaming consoles have been long awaited by fans and estimated to arrive until at least 2020, although there have been reports suggesting that the PS5 could be launched in late 2019.
Last December of 2017, games industry analyst Michael Patcher spoke with Gaming Bolt in an exclusive interview about the possible release date of GTA 6 which he predicted to be over or less than 2022.
There are many theories surrounding GTA 6’s release data. The success of GTA Online and also the possibility to be affected by RDR2’s RDR Online possible success are one of them.
