Some leaked information suggests that the manufacturer Take-Two Interactive may have spent up to $ 2.5 billion on Grand Theft Auto 6.
Recently, hacker teapotuberhacker claims to have hacked information from Rockstar Games (a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive). teapotuberhacker claims the company spent about $2.5 billion to develop Grand Theft Auto 6 (aka GTA 6).
$2.5 billion is a huge investment for a fictional game. If teapotuberhacker is right, then GTA 6 will easily take the title of the game with the highest production cost in history.
The amount includes the cost of development, marketing, advertising, distribution, overseas shipping, etc. Some rumors also suggest that GTA 6 was put into production 8 years ago.
The $2.5 billion package will also be used to cover when developers launch additional downloads (DLCs) or multiplayer.
However, Rockstar Games may have to spend a lot more if they want to use GTA Online to connect GTA 5 and GTA 6. This move is similar to Call of Duty Warzone being the bridge between Call of Duty versions. .
By far, the game with the most expensive development cost is Destiny, but only reached 500 million USD. In second place is Red Dead Redemption 2 with $370 million.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is also produced by Rockstar Games. GTA and Red Dead Redemption have quite similar concepts, but instead of taking place in a modern city, Red Dead Redemption is set in the American West in the 1890s.
On September 19, Take-Two Interactive confirmed a hacker had leaked the GTA6 trailer. The videos recording scenes of theft, shooting, driving, etc. are very complete, making this one of the biggest game leaks in the world.
However, Take-Two Interactive said that the above incident did not affect GTA6 or its business.
