Michael Pachter: Grand Theft Auto VI Could Last Five Hundred Hours!

The veteran, famous analyst claims Rockstar Games’ next big project will be significant even in its scale.


Grand Theft Auto VI is under active development. It’s official, and we even wrote about it. However, the analyst at Wedbush Securities talked about the game a bit more in a video. Since we’re talking about a gaming industry figure who has been around since the 2000s, we should perhaps consider what he said about Rockstar’s project: “Grand Theft Auto VI has been in development since 2014. They may not have been writing code back then as they were figuring out the story, but by 2015 they were writing code.

Anybody who is so naive as to think Rockstar, with its 2000 employees, is sitting on their butts twiddling their thumbs… No, they’re not, these guys are working their asses off to create unique content, but Grand Theft Auto VI will take ten years or more. The reason is, my understanding is, it is a mash-up of Vice City, San Andreas, Liberty City (so GTA III), and Europe, London for sure. You’re going to be able to go anywhere on those continents, and you’re going to have missions that take you all those places.

It’ll probably be a four or five-hundred hour game by the time they get it out. That’s what they are doing now. That’s what they’ve turned Grand Theft Auto VI into. I get it because they’re like, we’re going to charge you 60 bucks and then we’re going to give you an online experience, and you’re going to have to carry drugs from London to LA, you’re going to have to go through the port in Miami. They’re going to do all this cool stuff,” Pachter said.

Going by Take-Two’s latest financial forecast, Grand Theft Auto VI could arrive in the fiscal year 2024. That starts on April 1, 2023, but going by Pachter’s comment about needing ten years of development, 2024 seems more plausible.
