GTA 6 price update confirmed by Rockstar parent company

GTA 6 price update confirmed by Rockstar parent company

What would you be willing to pay for GTA VI?

Without question, GTA VI is going to be the biggest video game release since, well, GTA V in 2013 with fans willing to cough up the cash instantly to play the next entry in the iconic series.

The Grand Theft Auto series began in 1997 when it was a humble top-down action game for the original PlayStation and PC, but despite the technical limitations of its time, it was no less controversial with its take on graphic violence following in the footsteps of Carmageddon. Years later, the series would set a new industry standard for the open-world genre with the release of GTA III in 2001 and the rest, as they say, is history.

Following years of rumours and leaks, Rockstar Games released the record-breaking debut trailer for GTA VI in December 2023 and now, fans are eagerly awaiting the release date for the second GTA VI trailer. Fans will also be hoping to have a solid release date for GTA VI by the end of this year.

Since its inception, Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto series has pushed the boundaries of both social acceptance and console hardware and with GTA VI seemingly being in development for around 10 years, it will no doubt prove to be no exception. However, with a long development cycle and hefty production costs, it might be safe to assume that GTA VI could be a little more expensive than the typical AAA game.

The cost of video games continues to increase, with many games jumping from a standard £59.99 to £69.99 for major AAA new-gen releases. One could argue the case of inflation, which is a reasonable argument but on the flipside, the video game industry is making more money than it ever has right now.

It’s difficult to put a price on value as it's subjective to an individual, but if a game could warrant an RRP of £69.99, it’s likely to be GTA VI and Rockstar Games’ parent company Take-Two Interactive knows it.

As spotted by Kotaku, when asked about the potential price increase of GTA VI during a recent earnings call, Take-Two Interactive CEO, Strauss Zelnick said: “Look, there's more content constantly being made available, and we really aim to deliver great value at any given time. We're so focused on delivering more value than what we charge. And that's sort of the rubric.”

Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games certainly know how to milk the cash cow that is GTA V whether it is unit sales, its Shark Cards sold as in-game currency for GTA Online or its subscription service, GTA+. So regardless of what the RRP is for GTA VI, it will make a grotesque level of money.

Grand Theft Auto VI will be released in late 2025 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, that’s assuming it suffers no release date delay.
