Fans waiting for Grand Theft Auto 6 will undoubtedly be excited by the latest message from Take-Two Interactive – the parent company of the acclaimed Rockstar Games. 

It’s hard to remember a game ever being as highly anticipated as the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto series – despite the fact that no concrete announcements have even been made. 

February 6 saw Take-Two’s annual investor call, in which they discuss the company’s performance over the past year, as well as the future direction investors can expect the company to take.

Rockstar Games are just one of the massive publishers that work under Take-Two.

For obvious reasons, they remain vague in their discussions, but it still provides fans with an insight of what to expect.

Among other notable announcements, Take-Two confirmed that there will be multiple releases from the company’s most significant franchises. 

While this could refer to a host of game series, including Borderlands, Red Dead, Bully or their 2K franchises, it’s hard to imagine there won’t be a Grand Theft Auto release at any point in the next 5 years. 

Both Borderlands and Red Dead have received installments in the last couple of years, while Grand Theft Auto V came out in 2013.

Borderlands 3 released in 2019, while RDR2 came out in October 2018.

We are going to share more about the pipeline,” said Karl Slatoff, Take-Two’s President. “We’re hoping to share a lot more information with you over the coming months regarding that.”

Despite the news that more information will be coming our way over the next few months, Strauss Zelnick, Take-Two’s Chairman, emphasized the continued support their biggest titles will be receiving, explicitly naming Borderlands 3 and Grand Theft Auto Online. 

He also confirmed that their policy to release a AAA game every year remains in place, but there has been no suggestion as to what that title will be. Millions will have their fingers crossed for another Grand Theft Auto title.  

The final major talking point was regarding Dan Houser’s departure from Rockstar Games. 

While many took this to be bad news for the potential of a Grand Theft Auto game, Take-Two’s senior figures insisted that this will not affect the work of Rockstar, and that all games “in the pipeline” will progress as normal. 

Overall, the investor-call is likely to put the community’s excitement into overdrive. The full transcript is available here.
