Ever since the release of "GTA 5" in 2013, the game title is still earning in sales with Rockstar Games currently developing more expansion packs for the game. But still, more fans of the third person shooter game demand new content and luckily for gamers, Rockstar Games might just pull an early release for "GTA 6."

"GTA 6" Launched In 2018?

According to iDigital Times, Rockstar Games will have an early release due to the game developer's multiple gaming studios. Rockstar North is now currently developing "GTA 6", while on the other hand, "Red Dead Redemption 2" is being develop by Rockstar San Diego.

Other than that, Rockstar Games has other gaming studios in the globe such as Rockstar Lincoln, Rockstar Leeds and Rockstar New England that primarily works for ports and support if there are available projects. Rockstar Games also has current number of over 1,000 employees in its 10 active subdivisions accounted for, enough manpower to finish "GTA 6" and "Red Dead Redemption 2."

With that said, Rockstar Games can finish "GTA 6" and "Red Dead Redemption 2" at the same time. However, the slow paced development for "GTA 6" is all tied up with financial sales as Rockstar Games wants enough time to make more sales for "Red Dead Redemption 2" in its release.

On the other note, "GTA 4" was launched in 2008 and took Rockstar Games five years to complete the game title, while "GTA 5" was also released five years later in 2013. This might be an indication that if Rockstar Games sticks to their timetable, maybe fans can finally get a "GTA 6" title in 2018.

For now, fans must consider all reports with a grain of salt until an official announcement from Rockstar Games is released. Stay tuned to Gamenguide for more "GTA 6" news and updates!
