Rockstar Games Working Remotely

In an announcement on Sunday afternoon, Rockstar Games posted the following:

 

"In the interest of reducing the possible impact of COVID-19, Rockstar Games has implemented work from home policies across our international offices and studios. After significant research and consultation with our teams around the world, we began rolling out teams around the world, we began rolling out remote work solutions worldwide across the past week, and we are confident we have a robust system in place for our teams to continue their work with a minimum of disruption."

"Our online games will continue to operate as usual, and all support teams will remain available for our players. The health and safety of our employees and their families remains our top priority, and we will continue to adapt our practices to the situation as it evolves. We appreciate your patience and understanding, and wish you and your families the best of health during this unusual time."

What Does This Mean For GTA 6?

It's safe to say that GTA 6's release date will be delayed, from whenever that was originally meant to be.

Working remotely, although it will seemingly have little impact on online games, will no doubt have an impact on the development of new games.

It's unlikely the game will get much mention in 2020 and instead go big in 2021, with next-generation consoles in mind.
