Take-Two, the publisher behind the Grand Theft Auto series, have confirmed that they have multiple releases from their biggest franchises coming in the next few years. So, could one be GTA 6?

Grand Theft Auto V fans are still driving the streets of Los Santos in GTA Online, with Rockstar Games continuing to pump out plenty of new content for their multiplayer experience.

However, with GTA V being over seven years old, plenty of fans are clamoring for something new – especially with the Xbox Series X and PS5 being readied for launch in the next holiday season. Some fans believe that the setting and story behind the next game, GTA 6, has already been hinted at but confirmation about the development has not yet been found.

GTA Online has had plenty of Rockstar’s focus.

Yet, Take-Two, the publisher behind GTA and other Rockstar titles, has confirmed that they have new games in the works from their biggest franchises.

During their February 6 investor call, the publishers reportedly claimed that they would be ‘multiple releases’ from their biggest franchises in the next few years, with some of the games being the “most diverse and ambitious they’ve ever had.”

While they weren’t exactly forthcoming with details and doing everyone a favor by dropping a hint about GTA, they are set to have news regarding a Triple-A title coming in the next few months.

Now, while fans might be hoping that this is GTA 6, the call did cover Take-Two as a whole – and they do have other franchises that are being worked on by different studios across the globe. 

One of the most notable comes from the Hangar 13 studio, which works on the popular Mafia series. Mafia 3 released back in 2016, and fans have been hoping for a title, which seems pretty likely.

One of the other titles in the works could very well be from the Bioshock series. The last installment came in 2013, and like both the GTA and Mafia fanbases, there have been calls for a new release.

Whether or not one of these games being worked on under the Take-Two banner is actually GTA VI still remains to be seen. 

Though, coupled with the recent announcement from Rockstar themselves about more GTA news coming in the future, it would appear as if we’re closer than ever to hearing official news about GTA 6.

Warzone’s much anticipated Black Ops Cold War update has been delayed to the disappointment of Call of Duty fans across the globe.

It’s fair to say there’s a lot of excitement for Warzone’s integration into Cold War. The update is expected to bring a set of significant features to the free-to-play title including map changes, new weapons, and new modes.

As Warzone will be transitioning into a new Call of Duty title, the game will be receiving a soft reset and returning to Season 1.

In November, Activision revealed that Season 1 would arrive on December 10. Unfortunately, an announcement has revealed that the update has been delayed.

A live blog post from Activision has revealed Warzone’s Cold War Season 1 has been delayed. This is extremely disappointing news for fans of the free-to-play title.

It was originally set for a December 10 release, but now we know it will instead be December 16.

In an official statement, devs said: “It’s an unprecedented amount of free content and the teams are currently prepping… we’re taking a few more days to finalize everything before unleashing this massive drop of new, free content to the community.”

Warzone has received consistent updates since its release, but none have been as huge as the integration into Cold War. Although this isn’t news fans wanted to hear, it’s better to have a polished version of the game released.

The Warzone map has barely changed since the release of the game.

The main feature fans were excited about are the map changes expected to come with the update. Warzone’s map has barely changed since the release of the game in March.

However, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a bit longer before we get these changes. Hopefully, this delay will give the developers time to polish the experience for fans of the game.

We’ll keep you updated with all the latest news on the delay.
