GTA 6 team "determined to once again set creative benchmarks"

Heidi Nicholas - August 9th 2022

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick shared his expectations of the next GTA game, saying the Rockstar Games team is "determined to once again set creative benchmarks for the series, our industry, and for all entertainment."

Speaking in a Take-Two Interactive conference call (thanks, VG247), Zelnick discussed the continued success of GTA V, before giving a brief update on the next entry in the series.

GTA 6 development is "well underway"

"Sales of Grand Theft Auto V also remained strong, and to date, the title has sold-in nearly 170 million units," Zelnick began, before adding, "With development of the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series well underway, the Rockstar Games team is 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."

Details on the next GTA game are few and far between. Recent reports suggest that GTA 6 will feature two playable protagonists (one of them female), and that it would be set in a fictional Miami. A later report claimed that Rockstar had cut down on its original scope for the next GTA game, and that it had initially planned for there to be three big cities to explore.
