Rockstar Games has already set an industry record in the gaming scene with GTA 6 – although the title has not even been released yet.

New York – GTA 6 is already eagerly awaited by fans. Almost immediately after the release of Grand Theft Auto V in 2013, the first voices were raised asking for the next part. Now developer Rockstar Games has finally officially confirmed what many already suspected: GTA 6 is in development. More is not yet known about the title and the game will probably take some time before it is released. Nevertheless, the New York developer was able to set an industry record with GTA 6.

GTA 6: Rockstar Games sets industry record even before release

GTA 6 has already broken this record: GTA 6 will probably set some records, after all, the New York developers have been working on the next title in the series for quite a while. A well-known French insider has probably already had a first look at the game and promised that the graphics of GTA 6 are incredible. In addition, it will probably also break some sales records, because GTA 5 was also able to set some records for itself.

But that is still in the distant future, because the release of GTA 6 will probably only take place in 2024 or later. At least that is the general opinion among industry experts and insiders. A recently leaked document seems to confirm that GTA 6 will be released in 2024. But long before the release, the New York developer set a first industry record with GTA 6.

In early February, Rockstar Games announced on its Twitter account that the “next Grand Theft Auto title was in development. That probably made fans cheer loudly, because the patience threads were getting shorter and shorter. The likes collected under the tweet also show that fans were happy about the announcement. With a short post of almost 150 characters, Rockstar Games was able to collect a total of 601,350 likes. This makes the announcement of GTA 6 the most liked tweet in the gaming industry to date.
