Analyst: Rockstar has 5 games in development including GTA 6

Rockstar Games could be working on up to five games, including GTA 6, according to an analyst.

Grand Theft Auto 6 might not be the other game Rockstar is working on (but it’s definitely the most important right now).

“Guess what, Rockstar has five games in development. They do. They may never come out, but they have them,” Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter said in a recent RDX Podcast.

If that’s true, it’s not really a surprise. Video game developers usually have multiple projects in development at different stages of production. Some are stalled and on hiatus, some are in the early stages of incubation, others are moving into pre-production, and then there are projects like Grand Theft Auto 6 that are in full production.

Reports indicate that Rockstar may be working on a bullying suite and a possible remaster of the original Red Dead Redemption. So there is Agentwhich may have been cancelled.

As for Grand Theft Auto 6, analysts reinforced my original prediction that the the game could launch by 2024.

Take-Two Interactive expects to make around $9 billion in revenue by 2024 from the Zynga acquisition, and analysts point to GTA 6 as the main driver of that prediction.

Financially, few franchises are as popular as Grand Theft Auto. The GTA franchise has earned over $7.3 billion since the release of GTA V in 2013.
