GTA 5 Fans Reflect On Their Ninth Anniversary

Grand Theft Auto V is now nine years old and fans are thinking about the game launching in 2013. At the time Rockstar Games announced Grand Theft Auto V back in 2011, it had seemed like an eternity since the last Grand Theft Auto game. Many were eager to see how Rockstar would follow up on the acclaimed predecessor and what technological advancements the new open-world game would offer. In fact, it had only been about three and a half years and they had released games like Red Dead Redemption and The black before announcing it. Now fans have been waiting for a crumb of information about Grand Theft Auto VI for nine years, he has certainly been waiting between grand theft auto 4 and 5 kinda funny now.

Nonetheless, fans took to social media today to celebrate Grand Theft Auto V. The game was released on September 17, 2013, and became the best-selling entertainment product in history by achieving $800 million in sales in 24 hours and $1 billion in 3 days. The game was acclaimed by fans and critics thanks to its extensive campaign and the success only continued with the release of GTA online, a mode released a few weeks later in October 2013 to give fans time to experience the story. To date, the game has sold over 170 million copies and continues to grow as the game receives regular updates online and has been released on three different console generations. Its immense success has basically allowed Rockstar Games to do whatever it wants and take all the time it needs for its follow-up game.

Rockstar Games confirmed earlier this year that the next Grand Theft Auto has been in development for some time. We don’t know anything about it other than rumors that it will be set in Vice City and feature a kind of Bonnie and Clyde due to the game’s playable characters. It’s likely that the game is still years away from its release, but hopefully it won’t be long before we get a first glimpse of it.
