You may have seen the recent rumor that there are “shocking” PS5 exclusive game announcements forthcoming. Now, there is a specific rumor circulating about Grand Theft Auto 6. Specifically, some people are speculating that GTA 6 will be a timed exclusive. What is the origin of this rumor and how seriously should we take it? Let’s learn more.
GTA 6 Will Be a PS5 Timed Exclusive According to Rumors
Foxy UK Games started this rumor, claiming that Sony and Rockstar are negotiating a $750 million deal to make GTA 6 a timed exclusive on PlayStation 5. It wouldn’t be a long exclusive period—just 30 days. But that could feel like a lifetime if you are on a different platform desperately waiting to get your hands on the game while your friends on PS5 are enjoying GTA 6.
How likely is this to actually happen? Well, we could definitely see it happening from Sony’s end. The advantage of the timed exclusivity to Sony seem pretty obvious with such a huge game. But would it be worth it to Rockstar? Regarding that, we are not as certain. Gamers are not all too fond of timed exclusives. Nobody likes feeling left out. Rockstar would need to deal with the flak it would get for the decision. And while $750 million is a lot of money, it might not be worth the bad press when the game is already going to make boatloads of revenue.
At this point, it really is too early to make a solid guess as to how likely it is. But if we hear anything else about it, we will let you know.
