The PS5 may get an abrupt exclusive in Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) in case a recent report will be considered. Sony may be in talks to buy Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of GTA V and Red Dead Redemption two hitmaker Rockstar Games also as 2K, the writer behind BioShock, XCOM, and WWE games to name a few. If accurate, it would put Microsoft’s E3 2018 reveal of multiple studio buys to shame with GTA 6 independently. Nevertheless, it is fairly unlikely that Sony would really spend on getting a company of Take-Two’s size and prestige, more so when its attention was on first-party exclusives like God of War and Uncharted 4. However, the proposition of GTA 6 being exclusive to the PS5 would make business sense given how hot GTA V has been.
According to Marketwatch citing Joel Kulina, Head of Technology and Media Trading in Wedbush Securities, Sony”is in advanced board level negotiations to obtain Take-Two Interactive in a mostly cash deal”. This would value Take-Two at $130 a share. Take Two’s stock climbed 4.7 percent on the rumour.
Previously it was suggested that GTA 6 may occur in two places — Vice City and South America. While the former is Rockstar’s take on Miami, players can go to South America for a few missions. The game has been known at Rockstar as Project Americas.
Along with the, GTA 6 might, for the very first time, include a female protagonist because one of it leads. Even though there’s no confirmation if you will have the ability to control several personalities just like you could in GTA V.
But do not expect to play GTA 6 anytime soon. The game is supposed to be available around 2022. If that’s the case, it might possibly signal the conclusion of the PS4 and Xbox One with GTA 6 being their collective swan song and it being re-released for the next wave of consoles from Sony and Microsoft in addition to the PC.

As for the PS5, PlayStation 5 or whatever Sony intends to call its PS4 successor, it might be slated for a 2021 launch date.
In addition, he says that there’s no prospect of the PS5 releasing before March 2020. He also considers the prospect of an April 2020 to March 2021 launch window but considers it is unlikely. Besides speculating on the PS5 launch date, Imanaka considers Ghost of Tsushima will be out by March 2020 with The Last of Us Part II and Death Stranding published from the forthcoming financial year or another (by March 2021 latest).
It appears that the PS5 launch won’t just impact Sony’s games division but the firm as a whole, Imanaka considers . This would explain why we have seen uncontrolled controversy surrounding the console.
In associated PS5 information, it might possibly use PS4, PS3, PS2, and PS1 games. It is an interesting move from Sony if it has implemented because it might spell the end of remasters or even re-releases this generation of consoles is notorious for. It perhaps signals that Sony is assured of the first-party matches and exclusives we will see about the PS5 too.
