New Grand Theft Auto in 2023?

A new SEC Filing from Take-Two Interactive suggests we might be getting a new installment in the Grand Theft Auto series in 2023. As noted on VentureBeat, a research brief from investment firm Stephens Inc., this Form 10-K filing shows a spike in Take-Two's projected marketing budget has shifted to fiscal 2024, which concludes on March 31, 2024. This kind of spending proved to be a reliable indicator for the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, suggesting it may be the same for the eagerly awaited next installment in the open-world crime series. This is unconfirmed, and still far enough out that plans could certainly change again even if it's accurate, but it certainly does seem like a plausible theory. Here's word on why Blue Horseshoe loves Endicott Steel:
Each year TTWO's 10-K discloses minimum marketing commitments for the subsequent five fiscal years. In our bull / bear note in February we hypothesized that GTA VI was likely planned for F23 due to a spike in committed marketing spend for that year (see Figure 1). However, this year's 10-K seems to have shifted that spend from F23 to F24. We are not sure how much we should be reading into this shift, but we would note that this disclosure accurately predicted the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 prior to that game's announcement. Management has spoken very confidently about the pipeline over the next five years and existing live services execution has been excellent. However, the timing of the next Grand Theft Auto remains top-of-mind for investors, particularly with the stock near all-time-highs.

I have yet to find a rockstar game I like other then Max Payne 3, I tried GTA IV, vice city and V and red dead redemption 2 and usually quit after 1-2 hours, in GTA V after the opening sequence and the first couple of quests the only quest I could find was in an area I could not access so I just said f it and moved on to better games.

Way too far out. After all this bullshit they'll want money sooner than later. Besides, it's been 7 years since V. It'll be out next year.

And it'll be filled with MTs with the SP as an afterthought.
GTA5 SP content after launch was a joke.

You are out of your mind. Who cares about the online microtransactions? You can completely ignore that side of it and still the offline content in GTA5 dwarfs 99% of other games, just as its predecessors did in their time. They never made any promises about post-launch SP content, that was always just wishful thinking from the fans, same as how they now clamor for an RDR1 campaign add-on for RDR2. That doesn't take away from the massive amount of big budget action-adventure they gave you for $60... I thought people who don't like microtransactions WANT the entire, complete game to be included in that one-time purchase?
I recently played SP again. Its really not that much content. I spent much more time in other open world games. I mean its a really awesome story, and I really enjoy playing it, but its really not that long.

The online content is huge, though. It takes you literally thousands of hours to unlock/buy everything, unless you spend real $$$. And thats what they are making so much money with. Microtransactions. Selling ingame money for real money.

The biggest problems of that game are cheaters, online load times, not having dedicated servers (which also affects cheaters and load times massively) and the horrible and non-uniform controls and UI design.

And as we saw in RDR2 (incl. Online), they dont give a shit about any of those problems. Its like they just reskinned GTA5.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

Wonder what they're going to lampoon in this one... There's SO much to choose from just in the past 12 months alone, an the year is almost half-over.

Whenever it comes out you can be sure it will be released for the new consoles exclusively for the first year or so.
Hope I'm wrong.
