GTA 6 is at least 2 or 3 years away from releasing. That said, many Grand Theft Auto fans may not last this long. Every time there’s some major GTA news that isn’t GTA 6 trends on Twitter, and this time was no exception. Much of this trend is fueled by memes and farming engagment, however, as someone who sifts through these tweets every time GTA 6 trends, I’m starting to notice more and more Grand Theft Auto fans genuinely lose hope over the game.
GTA 6 fans have been enraged by a new Grand Theft Auto statement from Rockstar Games. Today, the next huge GTA Online content update was revealed, starring Franklin and Dr. Dre from GTA 5, and GTA 6 has been trending on Twitter ever since. If anybody feared GTA Online was going away or that support would begin to dwindle, today’s statement served as a reminder that this isn’t going to happen anytime soon. Of course, GTA Online fans were ecstatic and welcomed today’s announcement, but for Grand Theft Auto fans who have moved on from GTA Online and GTA 5 and are looking forward to GTA 6, today’s news was just another sobering reminder that GTA 6 is still a long way off.
Jumping on the trend, fans have used the opportunity to point out that Rockstar Games is doing literally anything and everything besides giving fans Grand Theft Auto, and there is some truth to this. Between continued support of GTA Online, the recent remasters of the GTA Trilogy, and the upcoming remaster of GTA 5, Rockstar Games is doing everything but giving fans GTA 6, and a remaster of GTA 4, but according to various rumors, this could be changing soon. Meanwhile, one fan used the trend to point out that GTA 5 and GTA Online are so old that the iPhone 4 was new when the games were released.
So, why hasn’t Rockstar Games released GTA 6 yet? Well, there are many elements contributing to this, but one of the biggest reasons is that GTA 5 and GTA Online continue to make Rockstar Games and its parent company of Take-Two Interactive unimaginable amounts of money. Grand Theft Auto fans continue to come back and play GTA Online en masse.
