With "Grand Theft Auto 5" still living up to the hype, nothing much is said about "Grand Theft Auto 6" except for some updates here and there. Rockstar Games has already admitted that they will give their undivided attention to "Grand Theft Auto 5" as it is set to premiere soon. But a new report claims that there may be a bigger reason for the lack of announcement.

'Grand Theft Auto 6' Release Date: Budget too much for Rockstar Games to handle?

As it turns out, Rockstars Games has to deal with a multi-million budget to produce "Grand Theft Auto 6." With this high budget, it is understandable for Rockstar Games to not say much about "GTA 6" just yet until they are fully settled with the multi-million budget.

According to Neurogadget, "Grand Theft Auto 5" cost Rockstar Games a whopping $265 million to develop the game. With rumors that "Grand Theft Auto 6" may feature VR or AR support, the cost for "GTA 6" is unimaginable.

With the hype of "Grand Theft Auto 6" getting bigger by the minute, the game has a huge capacity to earn a large profit despite the huge budget. Rockstar Games has yet to announce the official release of "Grand Theft Auto 6."
