GTA 6: launch period potentially unveiled by Take-Two, for analysts


Take-Two may have hinted at the GTA 6 launch period. According to some analysts, in fact, the latest financial data shared by the publisher would seem to indicate the fiscal year 2024, which runs from 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024, as a possible launch window for the game.

Last week Take- Two has announced plans to acquire the mobile giant Zynga. On that occasion, the publisher unveiled that it expects a compound annual growth rate of 14% in fiscal year 2024.

According to analyst Doug Creutz such an optimistic estimate, which is equivalent to about 9 billion dollars of revenue, could come true "probably with the launch of GTA 6 in fiscal year 2024", a game that for obvious reasons could make Take-Two billing astounding figures.

Similarly a Jefferies group analyst says: "There are only a handful of games that can give management the confidence to provide such strong leadership; we believe at least one Rockstar IP will be released by fiscal year 2024."

Interesting forecasts and all added credible if we think of the current s market implementation, with GTA 5 still selling tons of copies. Therefore a possible launch of GTA 6 at the end of 2023 or in the first months of 2024 cannot be absolutely excluded.

Staying on the subject, according to the well-known insider AccountNGT, GTA 6 will be the only new Rockstar Games game of this generation.

Has the GTA 6 release date been accidentally revealed by Rockstar ‘s parent company?

THE WAIT for Grand Theft Auto 6 has been a long one, but fans should buckle up for a 2024 release.

Take Two may have tipped its hand as to the GTA 6 release date when discussing its acquisition of mobile and social game developer Zynga.

Execs from the parent company of GTA developer Rockstar said they expect to see an an annual growth rate of 14% between now and 2024 (via Axios).

'There are only a handful of titles that can... provide management with the confidence to put out such a strong guidance,' weighed in an analyst from New York company Jefferies.

'We believe there is at least one Rockstar IP set to be released by FY24.'

This speculation was backed up by analyst Doug Creutz from Cowen.

In terms of numbers, that percentage would translate to $9BN in 'gaming-related transactions'.

Creutz says this points to “a likely GTA 6 launch in FY24.”

It's worth saying that FY24 ranges from April 1, 2023 through to March 31, 2024.

While that does leave a window open to a 2023 GTA 6 release date, rumours we've heard so far suggest that's jumping the gun.

Reputed Twitter leaker Tom Henderson has previously said that a 2022/ 2023 GTA 6 launch date 'a little bit premature'.

He says 2024/ 2025 is more likely — information that's been backed up by industry veteran Jason Schreier.

Popular release windows for games tend to be around the holiday period, or early on in the year, before the FY ends.

So if we do get a 2023 release, it'll be at the tail end of the year.
