Rockstar: GTA VI could end up costing $2 billion

It was back in 2013, so now 10 years ago, when Rockstar launched GTA V, yet another chapter in the Grand Theft Auto saga. GTA V has been the most successful chapter in the series, having also passed between three different consoles (PS3 - PS4 and PS5).

Although GTA V continues to attract millions of fans in its online versions, fans are now eager to play the next chapter in the saga, which, according to leaks released in recent months, should be something sensational. 

Analysts are talking about a forecast of 14 million copies sold at launch, but rumours have also recently revealed how much it will cost the producers to complete the game: they are talking about $2 billion, which would make GTA VI the most expensive entertainment product in history.

The most expensive entertainment product in history
Some insider twitter profiles, such as 'Rino' and 'Game Riot', claim that the production of the game will cost around 2 billion dollars in total, and will be the most expensive entertainment product (thus including films, videos, shows, concerts, etc.) in history. Analysts, however, claim that the game will be able to sell around 14 million copies at launch, according to forecasts, so the production cost does not seem so worrying either.
