The gaming community is eagerly awaiting updates on the next installment from Rockstar Games, possibly Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6). However, a recent report suggests that a new GTA game may be in development, although it remains uncertain if it is indeed GTA 6.
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, there is news of an upcoming Grand Theft Auto game in the works, though it’s clarified that this isn’t GTA 6. Since Rockstar had already confirmed the development of GTA 6 last year, the identity of this mystery game raises intriguing questions.
The report indicates that Netflix Games has been in discussions about potentially launching a GTA game through a licensing arrangement with Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, on its relatively new gaming platform.
For those unfamiliar, Netflix introduced its mobile gaming service in November 2021, offering it as a complimentary benefit for subscribers. The company released several games available for download exclusively for Netflix account holders on Android and iOS.
Reportedly, Netflix has also been testing the streaming of games on PCs, TVs, and Macs. While details about this possible GTA game remain limited, it could represent Netflix’s latest venture into the gaming sector, having already invested nearly $1 billion in gaming efforts.
Regarding GTA 6, there are reports suggesting a potential release window in late 2024 or early 2025. Raymond James analysts have upgraded the stock of Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, with an eye on what they describe as a “very interesting” outlook for 2025 and beyond, hinting at a potential release in 2025. Reports also mention that Take-Two will unveil its financial results for Q2 FY2024, which might provide further insights into a release date.
