The GTA 6 release date is still unknown, and it remains a mystery whether the next Grand Theft Auto game will be launching on PS4 and Xbox One.
Fans continue to hunt for clues regarding the launch of GTA 6 and whether recent rumours can be trusted.
Some have tied Rockstar Games to launching its next major title alongside the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett consoles.
And that could mean a 2020 release date for the next Grand Theft Auto project. This is alongside reports of the famous studio scoping out possible filming locations in Florida.
Meanwhile, some fans have found good news in the latest quotes from Take-Two Interactive execs, confirming that big sequels are in the works for the company’s biggest franchises.
And now another teaser has been found, this time attached to Rockstar Games studios.
As reported by former insider Yan2295, a new promotion has been found, connecting the group City Morgue with Rockstar.
This includes a poster of a blood bag, with both the Rockstar Games logo feat City Morgue on the front, along with the tagline “Summer 2020”.
The new image was captioned: “City Morgue, a hip hop group, teased this on Instagram today.”
When someone pointed out it could be for a live stream event for GTA 5, Yan2295 added: “Seems way too early for something that minor to already be planned.”
Which makes sense, considering there would be plenty of time to do something like this right now in GTA 5 Online.
Unfortunately, this isn’t enough to tie Rockstar Games to anything connected with GTA 6, even though it might fit with whatever new theme or setting the game has.
And there’s a chance that it might be connected to something else that Rockstar Games could be working on.
It follows the news that Take-Two Interactive has filed a trademark that appears to be attached to a new IP.
Named Union 31, reports are linking the parent company of Rockstar Games with a new title. However, past the classification that this new trademark is for video games, we have no further information.
In the run-up to the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, fans also found an Australian Classifications Board IARC refusal for a project named Bonaire.
This turned out to be Red Dead 2 for PC, which has since launched. And while the same could be true for this latest trademark, it should be noted that Take-Two owns a lot of different developers.
And this could be something tied to any one of them, rather than something connected to GTA 6. In a recent financial report from Take-Two, CEO Strauss Zelnick confirmed that new IPs were in the works, telling investors:
“Our positive momentum continued in the second quarter, enabling our Company to generate operating results that significantly exceeded our expectations,” said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two.
“We delivered strong Net Bookings, cash flow and earnings growth, fueled by the performance of NBA 2K, Borderlands 3, Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, and Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.
“Once again, our strategy of creating the highest-quality entertainment in the industry translated into outstanding results. As a result of our better-than-expected second-quarter operating results, we are once again raising our operating outlook for fiscal 2020.
“The third quarter is off to a solid start with the launches of The Outer Worlds, Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC and WWE 2K20, and we will bolster our holiday line-up with offerings for Google Stadia and Sid Meier’s Civilization VI for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
“Throughout the fiscal year, we will continue to support our titles with experiences designed to captivate audiences and drive ongoing engagement, including new content for Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online.
“Looking ahead, Take-Two has the strongest development pipeline in its history, including sequels from our biggest franchises as well as exciting new IP.
“We are actively investing in emerging markets, platforms and business models, and are exceedingly well-positioned to capitalize on the positive trends in our industry and to generate growth and margin expansion over the long-term.”
