Hearing: Grand Theft Auto 6 can be the most expensive game of all time

New rumors have recently appeared that the GTA 6 development cycle will cost Rockstar $ 1-2 billion. This will easily make her the most expensive game in history, ahead of Destiny (2014 – $ 500 million.), Cyberpunk 2077 (2020 – $ 330 million.) and Modern Warfare 2 (2009 – $ 310 million.).

Even Grand Theft Auto 5, published in 2013, cost Rockstar only $ 250 million. But when the game came out, it raised more than $ 1 billion in just three days – so it can be confidently said that the exorbitant fee for the development was well -deservedly returned.

If the rumors are true, then the GTA 6 will become the most expensive game from the ever developed. In addition, this is the most long -awaited game in history, and for more than ten years players have not departed from GTA 5, desperately waiting for specific news about the development of the next game of the series.

For the first time, the hacker was announced about this amount by the Early Build of the game, but on May 9 this year, Dexerto Gaming reported on her Twitter about the leak of the Grand Theft Auto 6 budget leak. A few days earlier, on May 3, 2023, the famous YouTuber Game Inter discussed this topic in one of his videos on YouTube. According to the blogger, the initial cost of developing the upcoming game was estimated at about $ 250 million. But if you take into account marketing, promotion and other expenses, then the total amount will easily exceed a billion dollars. And during the proceedings on the Microsoft and Activision Blizzard transaction, it turned out that now the budget of some AAA-IGR exceeds 1 billion. dollars.

After a large -scale leak last year, as a result of which 100 GB of data got into the network, Rockstar Games had no more left for the one to admit that it was working on the next Grand Theft Auto game, but that was all ending. There were no indications of where the game will take place, what chronology it will adhere to, how many main characters will be in it or how the GTA 6 multi -user modes will look like.

However, apparently, a large -scale marketing campaign looms on the horizon. It is reported that Take -Two – the mother company Rockstar Games – plans to conduct a campaign in Miami, the state of Florida – it is there, according to rumors, the action of GTA 6 will take place, only in the GTA universe it is called "Vice City".

At the time of the publication of Take-Two, about $ 21 billion costs, so about 1.5 billion dollars spent on the development of GTA 6 for ten years do not seem unrealistic-especially if you take into account how much this game will work when it finally comes out.
