GTA 6 | Take-Two CEO explains development delay
Development on GTA 6 is taking a while, as usual for the franchise, but that’s not happening without reason, according to Take-Two’s CEO.
During a recent meeting with investors (Via ComicBook.com), Strauss Zelnick discussed the company’s lower sales for the fiscal year, claiming that he is reassured, given that even with the delay in releasing major franchises, there is confidence of a great financial return coming from a well-done release.
In conclusion, Take-Two’s CEO admitted that he would rather GTA 6 take time in development and come out at the height of what fans are expecting, than there be a sloppy release.
“If I could choose, I’d rather have the situation we’re in, which is some delays and revisions. That’s really the key in this business. We’ve had problems-we’ve gone through enough time to remember-where in the past we’ve had delays in titles, and in the end it was always worth the wait, because when we got there, the results were delivered and the small amount of time delay didn’t matter. I’m hopeful that will be the case here as well.” – Zelnick said.

For the first time in the franchise, there will be a playable female protagonist. The woman, who is Latina, will be one of the protagonists in the story “influenced by the bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde.”
In addition, the team is being “very cautious” with their jokes, as there is no intention of crossing a line about marginalized groups, in contrast to previous games.
The single-player map, which will feature a fictional version of Miami (all indications are that it is the classic Vice City) and its surrounding areas, will receive updates over time, adding “new missions and cities on a regular basis.
It is even expected to have more indoor locations than any other title in the franchise, in an effort to increase immersion.
