GTA 6 Probably Isn’t Releasing This Year

Take-Two Interactive recently had a meeting for shareholders to review the company's full-year financial results, and based on that meeting, it's unlikely that GTA 6 will be coming out this current fiscal year, which runs through the end of March 2022. Take-Two stated that it plans to release 21 games between now and the end of the fiscal year, which certainly sounds like a lot.

However, once you dig into the details, based on what we know about Take-Two's plans, chances of GTA 6 coming this year are very slim. Take-Two stated in the earnings release that only four of those games are "immersive core" releases, which is the category that GTA 6 would certainly belong to. Only two of those games will fall into existing franchises, and we already know that WWE 2K22 and the new NBA 2K are virtually guaranteed to release this year, leaving no room in the cards for GTA 6. Additionally, if a high-profile game like GTA 6 were coming this fiscal year, you would expect Take-Two to reflect that more clearly in its fiscal forecast.

All is not lost, however. Take-Two further stated in the meeting that 19 more "immersive core releases" will follow in fiscal years 2023 and 2024, with seven of those being sports sim games and four of them being free-to-play. That means that GTA 6 could easily fit into those remaining slots, though we still don't know enough about the game's development to draw any firm conclusions.
