GTA fans are anxiously waiting for all kinds of rumors regarding GTA 6 because this is a much-awaited game.
As you already know by now, GTA 5 has been a massive success for Rockstar Games, and the developer really has to make a sequel according to lots of gamers’ opinions.
This is a must, especially considering that Sony and Microsoft are both about to launch their brand new consoles that are said to be more potent than anything that gamers saw before.
There are tons and tons of GTA 6 rumors so far, but it seems that it’s pretty unlikely that the game will be released in time for the PS5 and the Xbox Series X will be launched.
Rockstar might have confirmed that the new game, which is much-awaited by fans is already in the works and this happened in the strangest way.
It’s important to note that the studio did not release any teasers but it did file a massive increase for Video Games Tax Relief, says Tax Watch.
BGR quotes the report and reveals that “the claim was by far the largest for Video Games Tax Relief [VGTR] granted by HMRC in 2018/19, accounting for 37% of all claims made by the UK video games industry in that year.”
A part of the report seems to be linked to GTA 6
It’s been also revealed that despite the huge success of GTA 5 which was a multi-billion dollar business for the studio, the claim reveals that Rockstar paid no UK Corporation tax for the fourth year in a row, according to the online publication mentioned above.
This is the part of the report which is believed to be linked to GTA 6:
“The claim is believed to relate to the production of the next edition of GTA, rumored to be scheduled for release soon. Rockstar North is the lead developer for the series, although Rockstar has also registered Red Dead Redemption 2 as being ‘Culturally British,’ the pre-requisite required to qualify for the relief. Studios are able to make interim claims for VGTR before a game is completed, and the huge claims being put in by Rockstar are likely related to the production costs of GTA VI. As VGTR is related to production spend, the large claim indicates the scale of Rockstar’s spending on games development.”
Anyway, Rockstar still has to acknowledge the project.
