The development of the game GTA 6 could take about 2 billion dollars at the moment. The game is expected to be released in 2024. Therefore, it is too early to talk about the final costs of developing the GTA 6 game.

What is known?

Rockstar Games is a well-known American video game developer owned by Take-Two Interactive Corporation. The most famous Rockstar Games games are the GTA series, Red Dead Redemption and other hits. You can follow Take-Two (TTWO) stock forecasts on our website.

The hacker Teapotuber, who corresponded with other users on one of the hacker forums, reported about $ 2 billion in expenses for the development of Grand Theft Auto VI. Screenshots of the Teapotuber correspondence were published by the News Leaks GTAS Twitter account.

The mentioned $2 billion is far from the final amount that Rockstar Games could spend on the development of the game. The official release is expected only next year. Recall that in previous leaks, the hacker published a different amount that was spent on the development of GTA 6. Then it was 4 times less compared to $ 2 billion.

The reported spending of $2 billion is a record amount for the gaming industry. The most expensive game today is Star Citizen, which took $420 million to create. The second place among the most expensive game projects is Cyberpunk 2077 from the Polish developer CD Projekt Red. The development of Cyberpunk 2077 cost the Polish studio $331 million. In third place is GTA V, which, according to open sources, spent $137 million.

On Friday, September 23, information appeared that a 17-year-old hacker who was involved in the drain of the GTA 6 game processor was detained in the UK.
