Reggie noted that he’s just like everybody else and is looking to get stuck into the next GTA game as he’s had some love for the franchise stretching back over the years. “On my PS2, I played a ton of Grand Theft Auto. I have not played since and part of it is having the time. Especially [with] console gaming, it was challenging during my time at Nintendo and it’s even challenging now given all the other stuff I do,” he said.

“I would love to get engaged to that next Grand Theft Auto experience when it comes out and to spend dedicated time on it.”
