Coming summer 2021. . .
This month, Take-Two Interactive revealed that Rockstar Games would be losing its co-founder, Dan Houser. In a presser, the third-party giant confirmed that his brother Sam Houser will still keep his role, alongside partners Terry Donovan and Jamie King.
Well, company experts of the gaming community are weary of the timing of this report from Take-Two. Many are now officially fearful that the game is going to be rushed; as Sam Houser will be pressured to make their summer 2021 deadline for Grand Theft Auto 6.
While Rockstar is yet to publicly reveal details on the game, there’s an expected announcement set to happen next holiday season; after the release of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
With the X set to launch with a brand-new Halo game, Sony is yet to share details on their major Killer-App game later this year. This now officially affects the single-player story line without Dan involved, as well as no faith for the online-multiplayer to have a proper roll-out; (remember how long those heists missions took?).
This is sadly reminiscent of Bioware’s end and the Mass Effect series, which both were beloved in the mid-2000s. Future Red Dead Redemption and Bully titles are also affected, as Dan was also the main writer of those AAA-titles, from years past.
Considering GTA V is the third best selling video game of all-time, behind Tetris and Minecraft; Rockstar hasn’t been in any rush to release a follow-up to the 7-year-old title – until now. Fans even went through an entire gaming cycle without a new Grand Theft Auto for PS4 and Xbox One.
With their official writer gone and the developers on a deadline; let us know in the comments what you think will happen with the core game itself.
