Rockstar Games continues to enjoy the success of “#Grand Theft Auto 5” and “#Gta Online,” factors that will likely mean a long wait for “Grand Theft Auto 6.” Nothing credible has come out for the sixth installment, the last buzz of which came from a fake resume listing by a voice actor named Tim Neff.

Neff’s listed “Grand Theft Auto 6” in the motion capture part of his resume, apparently something that was untrue. Hence, folks eager to see the next saga of the video game will have to wait some more until Take-Two or Rockstar actually comes out in the open to shed official light on where "GTA 6" really is.

Reaping dividends

Right now, the latest financial report from Take-Two Interactive shows the current GTA franchises doing well and continue to reel in the revenue.

In any case, it looks like both installments will be up there for a long time, seeing how their life spans have done better than initially expected.

Improvements that include added content and features continue for both "GTA 5" and "GTA Online," something gamers have been lauding. With continued success, such buys game developers time, meaning attention to "#GTA 6" may be minimal to none.

With plans to extend the life of “Grand Theft Auto 5” and “GTA Online,” such serves bad news to players looking for something new. Most are looking forward to new missions and vehicles, some of which have been minimally introduced to the current pair of GTA titles.

'Red Dead Redemption 2' needs to come out

Rather than the GTA series, Rockstar and Take-Two are busy working on “Red Dead Redemption 2.” The latest on that is the sequel will be further delayed, one that will reportedly benefit gamers.

While that should be something, it also means that any work to be done on "GTA 6" will have to wait until "RDR2" makes its official debut in 2018. From a gamer’s perspective, that reaction to that will depend on what gaming niche they are looking for seeing how both IPs carry a different genre.

The good news is that “Grand Theft Auto 6” is not shelved and will eventually happen. It all boils down to perspective and scheduling. With developers likely focused on the “Red Dead Redemption 2” sequel, Rockstar and Take-Two are balancing their resources and making sure that divided attention does not compromise quality.

Any update to "GTA 6" will likely start in 2018 once "RDR2" is out. There have been plenty of rumors for the game, but none will obviously come near to being confirmed with developers religiously following the schedule set by their superiors.
