GTA 6 Breaks Records as Most Expensive Entertainment Product Ever
Grand Theft Auto 6 has broken records and set the new bar for most expensive entertainment product ever. Rockstar Games’s upcoming game is estimated to cost around $265 million, about double the budget of a large-scale Hollywood production.
The staggering price tag primarily stems from the extraordinary level of detail Rockstar Games is striving for in the game. From thousands of NPCs, to expansive multi-level city designs, GTA 6 promises to be the most immersive game experience ever created. The devs of the game are also going to great lengths in their mission to make the game as realistic as possible, throwing real life physics, politics and morality into their action-adventure title.
The ambitious scope of GTA 6 has made the game a high-stakes gamble. Even after the substantial budgeting, the project is still at risk of not earning back its money if it fails to win over the market. Although the title seems to be on the right track when it comes to fan anticipation, only time will tell how well the game will fare when it releases.
What is certain, is that this unprecedented level of investment into a single entertainment product will become one of the greatest production stories in the gaming industry. Rockstar’s masterpiece, if successful, will be the benchmark of what monumental ambition and sheer monetary power can bring in the world of gaming.
