Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive recently submitted a 10-K SEC filing that may have tipped off when Rockstar plans to release Grand Theft Auto VI.
Industry research analyst Jeff Cohen noted that the planned marketing budget for the fiscal year ending on March 31, 2024 is twice that of the years leading up to that period. The reason for this could be because the next GTA could be on the horizon.
“We are not sure how much we should be reading into this shift,” said Cohen in a note to investors, “but we would note that this disclosure accurately predicted the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 prior to that game’s announcement.”
In the meantime, Rockstar can certainly keep making money off of Grand Theft Auto V sales as well as lucrative microtransactions through Grand Theft Auto Online.
