Take-Two betting big on sports, not GTA 6 | Podcast

Latest episode is available now, also discusses the diminishing importance of physical games

Matt, Brendan and James discuss the biggest stories of the past week, starting with speculation about the potential release window for GTA 6.

Rumours circulated that a spike in marketing commitments found within Take-Two's financial documentation placed the launch of GTA 6 around 2024 -- but Brendan's ready to shatter that hope.

Elaborating on his piece from last week, our North American editor explains why it's far more likely the that surge in marketing spend is more likely to coincide with a major push into sports games than a new Rockstar release.

We also unpack David Braben's recent comments about how physical games could more or less go away in three years' time. We look at where physical media stands in the general world of entertainment, and what the Frontier CEO really meant about its diminishing importance.
