GTA ONLINE runs on a Cloud Server...Meaning our progress we do now can transfer to various platforms, including next gen platforms.

 

More than likely there will be PS4/Xbox One GTA V re-release, shortly after the pc version most likely. 

 

 I imagine once GTA V is released to every platform (360, PS3, PC, Xbox One, PS4) and has saturated it's potential player base, they will release GTA Online as a Free To Play title that will be a Stand Alone game that you can download off of PSN, Xbox Live, and Steam. 

 

 So why do I think there won't be a GTA 6 in the end of it all?

 

1. GTA V had a budget that reached 260 million, only behind Pirates of The Carribean (300 Million) as the most costly entertainment budget ever in the entertainment medium (films, shows, books, games, etc). The transition to Next Gen Consoles, along with loftier player "expectations" will no doubt inflate the budget once again, and could potentially bring it near 300 Million. 

 

 The problem with that though is that you are taking a gamble. Higher production costs must equate to higher returns. No, GTA isn't a brand that's stagnating, but still one could question if this obstacle (of inflated future gta iteration budgets) is something of a concern for Rockstar and it's Publisher Take-2. 

 

2. Creating these titles takes Rockstar on Average 5 years to develop, and the work that comes along with recreating a whole new city from scratch, while developing new characters and narratives is something that is a big undertaking. 

 

3. Microtransactions

 

 So here's ultimately why GTA Online might be the end to a potential GTA 6.

 

 1. Adding additional content will be much quicker and speedier due to the Cloud Servers. 

 

2. Rockstar discussed wanting to add Liberty City as a playable world in the future, meaning this could open possible new cities ..and when adding new cities what stops from Rockstar simply adding a new city with some new missions rather than a whole new 300 million stand alone release. 

 

3. Microtransactions. It's much more cheaper for Rockstar to add new content and cities via the cloud server rather than make a whole new standalone release. Plus, online allows for microtransactions, which by providing constant feed of new items to purchase, you will constantly be getting profits for simply changing a line of code for 19.99. 

 

 

 

 

 I just think that in the end we will have a free to play GTA Universe, with various cities, and content to purchase...

Go away. He isn't trolling, he has very valid points in his post.

There will be a GTA VI. So he is trolling by saying there won't be. Why  the f*ck would R* stop making one of their most successful franchises in history that makes billions and billions of dollars? Seems kind of retarded to even think they would stop making it.

They made at least $740 million profit off of GTA V. So what if they spend ~$300 million making the next one because they'll still make a huge amount of profit once again. Not every one will buy microtransactions and the money they make off of it won't be enough to keep GTAO running constantly in the long run. Players will eventually get bored of the game, even if new maps are added. Coding a huge new world like Liberty City will take up man hours and those coders will new need to get paid. Sure, they already have the LC map from IV but they'll need to add details to it, improve the graphics and add things that will make it seem like V's world. All this will need $ and it will just be smarter to make a new game.

I agree that its more economical for R* to add new content to the online game rather than working on a completely new title, and by charging for DLC there I'm sure there's money to be made by doing it to say nothing of microtransactions.

 

Problem is they can't keep on adding new content to an existing engine indefinitely. Take a look at World of Warcraft and you'll see why.

Owners of next gen platforms will demand new games with engines that take advantage of their hardware.

 

I'd be surprised if R* aren't working on GTA VI as we speak. Players won't want to wait another 5 years for the next GTA game and they're sure to have multiple teams working on different games.

No they didn't - they took over $1 billion in revenue over the first few days, and yes, the game cost around $260million to produce. But that $1 billion does not solely go to Rockstar.

How is that trolling? He actually stated facts to back up his statement.. Of course there will be another GTA, R* already said they have 45 years worth of ideas.

Benzies already confirmed that they have ideas for GTA VI, so your argument is flawed I am afraid.

Actually, with the PS4 and XBox One being closer to PCs, development time will be a hell of a lot shorter. I predict GTA VI in 3-4 years.

Considering the profit they must have made off of this game, they would be fools not to work on another GTA game. GTA Online isn't a replacement for single player GTA games and it never was. If anything GTA Online will be updated alongside future single player games. That's where they'll get their new characters to give us more online missions and such.

in the end ... You said "free to play GTA" ... but imma say it straight up like this ... If GTA just stopped at V with online (which Is Impossible) and just continue to add on cloud ... there's most def gonna be a monthly cost added to whatever service your paying for (Live or PSplus)

I didn't even bother reading. Want to know why there's a GTA VI coming? GTA V made 1 billion in 3 DAYS. 

 

GTA will sell millions just with the name alone.

There will absolutely be another GTA.  With GTA V making record breaking profit it would be madness not to produce another one.

Ah man this is such bullsh*t, also you realise Rockstar have already said they've over '45 Years worth of ideas up their sleeve' and are currently thinking about locations for GTA 6.

 

So it's set in stone, always has been. You'd be mad to think they'd stop making the biggest gaming title in history, after the 5th Instalment has done so well for them.

haha, how would producing gta VI be a 'gamble'? After GTA V was the best selling game of all time, I think they might be tempted to make another...

 

Plus GTA Online is terrible. Not everyone is a massive fan of online multiplayer. They still need single player where the environment is more controlled, and they have an interesting storyline.

It will be very sad & if this is the future of gaming, then I really have outgrown it, or it's outgrown me.

 

I would rather pay £80 for a standalone GTA, as opposed to a 'Free to have your wallet raped' model you propose.
