Various recent reports paint a somewhat bleak picture for all gaming enthusiasts who have hoped and believed that new episodes in two of the most successful series in the field will be shown shortly
GTA V, one of the most successful titles in history with an estimated sales of more than 145 million copies, will soon celebrate its eighth birthday since it was first launched on the PlayStation 3 andXbox 360 (who finished their lives with dignity and have long since been replaced), and a little later The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim will celebrate its tenth birthday (!) Since it was launched to them Consoles Past of Sony And Microsoft and PCs - but still do not expect to see the heirs of this pair of giants land on us without warning within a few months. According to all current signs, this may only happen in about half a decade.
According to recent rumors, the next episode in the Grand Theft Auto series will not arrive until 2025, with a comeback to modern Vice City (based on Miami) known in the world as a dynamic game that will grow and develop over time. Yes, these are more or less all the details known about the work intended at this stage, as they too are based on a variety of prophecies and not on any concrete hint that the people of Rockstar Games.
With the huge and rare commercial success of GTA V in general, and the state of GTA Online online in particular, it seems that creators have no real interest in speeding up the development process of GTA VI - and instead prefer to focus on upgrading the game for third generation consoles with theXbox Series S / X andPlaystation 5, and with the potential for sales of tens of millions more copies.
And what about The Elder Scrolls 6, which was officially announced with a short trailer teaser three years ago? Surprisingly, not to mention shocked, by many fans, the boss of the main development studios of Bethesda Recently stated that the next chapter in the excellent role series is still in the initial planning stage - a stage where usually a limited number of people outline the ideas and foundations that will be used by the hundreds of metalworkers and designers who will begin the actual development later. The same trailer we saw is nothing more than an atmospheric video, then, that is not actually based on a physical game world - because the developer has not yet begun the stage of building the world, the characters and the gameplay.
Skyrim is also a huge success story, with sales of more than 30 million units to date that are a new and prominent record for the Elder Scrolls series, thanks in part to numerous re-launches in a variety of editions for a growing number of platforms and community Modding Loyal that encourages many to return to the piece time and time again. Although there have been no official announcements yet, it can be assumed with great confidence that the title will still get upgraded versions designed for the PlayStation 5 andXbox Series S / X, which can already run today thanks to their backwards support mechanisms - and taking into account the typical time periods for developing advanced modern open world titles, it would not be an exaggeration to assume that the launch of Elder Scrolls 6 will actually take place even later than the launch of GTA VI (not even officially unveiled).
Severely disappointed or accept with understanding the perception that it is worth waiting with (lots of) patience for good things that will justify their name? Let's talk about it with everyone.
