Presentation and release dates leaked? Latest


Over the weekend, a leak on Twitter attempted to overshadow the popularity of Starfield in the video game industry. An alleged recording began to circulate on the Internet in which Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Interactive—owner of Rockstar Games—revealed the presentation and release dates GTA 6.

The recording apparently came from a private call. Zelnick clearly mentions that GTA 6 will be presented on October 23 of this same year. The launch, for its part, is scheduled for a year later: October 24, 2024.

At first, most of us doubted the veracity of the material. While it is true that the voice, when compared to Zelnick’s most recent public interventions, appears to be authentic, today there are multiple tools powered by artificial intelligence that manage to clone voices. Especially those of famous people.

Therefore, the recording was called into question. However, something rather strange happened shortly after. The Twitter post received a claim for copyright. “This multimedia content was disabled in response to a complaint from the copyright holder,” says the message displayed by the social network.

Evidently, when the community realized the situation, the bomb exploded. The recording, now, made noise in the forums that have been closely following the news of the game.

“Over the past several years, we have been preparing our business to launch an incredibly strong pipeline of projects that we believe will take our company to even greater levels of success. In fiscal 2025, we expect to enter an era of launching several innovative projects that will They will set new standards in the industry and allow us to generate $8 billion in profits and more than $1 billion in operating cash flow.

You can be sure that, except Grand Theft Auto, no other franchise in its catalog could attract such an amount of money in such a short time. “Innovative projects that will establish new standards in the industry” is another phrase that reinforces the rumor, since a new installment of this franchise usually marks a before and after in the sector. GTA 6Of course, it would not be the exception.

In addition, Rockstar usually presents its games approximately one year before the first established release date. And I say “the first” because delays usually arise. So, even if we omit the recording issue, all paths point to a sooner rather than later presentation.
