'GTA 6' News And Updates: A Hefty Budget May Be The Reason Behind The Delay
"Grand Theft Auto 6" has been the talk on the web for several months now but most news websites have nothing but speculations to share. Rockstar has been keeping a tight lid on any developments about the supposed sequel to "GTA V" and no matter how much their fans clamor for any details about the video game, developers refuse to share any information.
Some speculated that Rockstar is not even planning on developing the sequel seeing that "GTA V" is still profiting. According to the Guinness World Records, "GTA V" set a new record for reaching the $1 billion mark in only three days after it was launched.
Since then the game is still getting sold and many customers are still invested in the game seeing that Rockstar continuously release updates and upgrades to it. All in all, "GTA V" costs $265 million to make but it is a small price to pay considering that it became a billion dollar profit for Rockstar.
With that in mind, Rockstar might be trying to upstage "GTA V" by coming up with another installment with far more advanced programs and more thrilling features. It may be the reason why there is still no news about Rockstar's progress seeing that they need to come up with something far superior to "Grand Theft Auto V." It just might be too hard to beat.
According to Neurogadget, Rockstar may be looking at a $300 million budget to work on "Grand Theft Auto 6" perhaps to accommodate a VR version for the game on top of all the other speculated features.
Also, a website dedicated to "Grand Theft Auto 6" said that Rockstar might be looking into improving their graphics to feature a more realistic simulation, which could also cost more.
But the probable reason for Rockstar's unwillingness to share any information is the company's penchant for keeping every detail of their games close to their chest. That way fans of the "GTA" series will be more surprised when they finally get to see "Grand Theft Auto 6."
