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.


FaZe Clan reveal FaZe 5’s Top 100 finalists & next recruitment steps

FaZe Clan’s FaZe 5 recruitment is nearing its finale, as 95 of the final top 100 candidates have officially been revealed. Next, the community will be able to select the five remaining content creators before FaZe announces the top 100’s challenge on Monday, October 26.

Back in August, FaZe Clan set the gaming world ablaze with a #FaZe5 challenge that gives everyone a chance to sign up and compete to become one of five new recruits to the organization in 2020. 

After months of deliberations and countless submissions, FaZe have tried to trim the finalists down to a top 100 before moving on to the next round of the challenge. But, as it turns out, the deciders are struggling to finish off their list and want to enlist the public for some help.

In a brand-new, highly anticipated hype video, FaZe announced 95 finalists with submission videos and highlights overlaid on some heavy, uptempo electronic music. Then, FaZe CBass explains what’s next.

Unsurprisingly, the majority of the content creators who made the final cut seem to be avid gamers focused on Call of Duty, Fortnite, Valorant, and Apex Legends. But there is some diversity, as fans might notice some highlights of Fall Guys, but then also visual art, music, and even clothing design.

Some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s more successful streamers and competitors also made the cut, as Nio, SuperEvan, and WarsZ all made the top 95. It’s not all high-level FPS streamers though, as the FaZe boys appear to have cast a wide net for the newest batch of recruits.

Among the more interesting content creators who are reaching the next round, the six-year-old Rowdy Rogan and MontoyaTwinz (Mya and Myka Montoya) are easy standouts. (It remains unclear if the Montoyas would take up one or two spots if they get into the final five.)

After flying through 95 impressive candidates, CBass cuts in to let people know that the list is too hard to cap off. 

“Everything we’ve looked through, we’ve been impressed by. We’ve sat through and watched absolutely everything we can and the honest truth is that there are way more than 100 people who are deserving of moving on to the next round of this challenge.”

Since the boys in red, black, and white can’t choose the final five, they’re allowing the community to do so. If fans have a creator who didn’t make the top 100, but deserves to, then they just need to hashtag “FaZe5” on Twitter and tag said creator. Then, on Monday, October 26, the official top 100 and next steps will be announced.
