The PlayStation 5 isn’t even out yet, but a new rumor is suggesting that Sony is in talks with Rockstar Games to have Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA6) be a timed exclusive.
While we’re still a ways off from the release of the PS5 and the port of GTA V, everyone is curious to know when Rockstar will announce GTA 6 to the world. As it turns out, Sony may be willing to pay big bucks to have the game appear on PS5 before any other console.
GTA 6 is basically an inevitability. For developer Rockstar Games, creating the next Grand Theft Auto game is obvious, because the series is the developer’s biggest franchise. Of course, Rockstar hasn’t yet actually announced the game, but there are plenty of rumours and hints to discover ahead of any eventual PS5 GTA 6.
