GTA 6 release date further away than expected according to analyst

GTA franchise has been without a new release since 2013, with GTA V failing to add any additional single-player content like its predecessor GTA IV – with the focus being put into multiplayer. 

Despite the constant updates to GTA Online, fans are obviously eager to jump into a new game with a fresh setting, story, and in-game mechanics, though that could very well be a long way off from happening. 

GTA Online has been chock full of updates

Stock analyst Alex Giaimo has warned traders off buying Take-Two stock (the parent company of Rockstar Games) because he believes that their next major release is still some time away. 

After downgrading the stock from ‘buy’ to ‘hold’, Giamio claimed that while Take-Two produces ‘high-quality content’ compared to other US publishers, he can’t see where the ‘near-term catalyst’ – in the form of a new release – to push the stock any higher than its current level is coming from.

Furthermore, Giamio predicts that fans won’t get their hands on the next installment of the iconic franchises until 2022, despite reports that it could be released much sooner than that.

RockstarGTA fans could be hanging around Los Santos for a little while longer yet.

Of course, this is only a prediction from the stock analyst and not to be taken as confirmation that a new game is still three years away. 

However, it might not be too far off the mark considering Rockstar are still invested into Red Dead Redemption 2 with a number of updates being made to its vast online modes.

A small gap between a Grand Theft Auto release and Red Dead Redemption could very well be filled by Rockstar’s smaller titles in Bully and Max Payne or even a brand new franchise.

Yet, a former developer has already claimed that Bully 2 has been canceled at least once and is unsure if it has been put back into development. Sadly, there has been no news on Max Payne or a new original title.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was the last release from Rockstar Games.

It remains to be seen if Giamio’s prediction comes off, or if fans will be hopping into whatever epic story that Rockstar has planned anytime sooner. 


GTA Online player makes strange car discovery at Diamond Casino

Grand Theft Auto Online players have made a startling discovery at the back of the Diamond Casino which is, somewhat, unexplainable. 

Given that it’s a living, virtual city, Los Santos can throw up plenty of surprises – both intended and unintended – with the NPCs, their vehicles, and the different buildings dotted around the place. 

Some of Los Santos’ residents will just run out into the road, attack you for looking at them for longer than a few seconds, or start running wildly if you happen to see them conducting a shady deal down a dark alleyway. 

However, in the case of the Diamond Casino’s racing track, some players have discovered something completely different, as the game has allowed some select residents to start driving around in circles.

Almost 7 years after it was first released, players are still finding new ways to do things in GTA Online.

Typically, when it comes to the Casino’s dirt racing track, it’s empty and looking like it needs a few horses to be racing around it.

Yet, as Reddit user FS1120 pointed out, some of the NPCs might just start driving around it as they wish. Why? Well, the Redditor didn’t really have an explanation. Just that, as they were doing a Sightseer mission, they noticed it – and it was such a shock, given they’ve never seen it before. 

Other players were also taken back by the discovery, given how completely random it is. However, one fan might have cracked the code.

Anyone know what this is about – I’ve never seen this at the race track before from gtaonline

Reddit user Appletree_Music asked: “Wonder if the mission enabled that area for traffic because it’s going two ways at traffic speeds? Definitely a first.”

Other players noted that it isn’t just limited to the Casino, either. Redditor adwyv pointed out that they’d also seen traffic driving around the Pier in a similar fashion. 

Either way, the next time you drop into Los Santos, keep an eye out for random traffic. It could lead to a hilarious moment of discovery.
