It won’t. Like GTA 5, it’ll be in-game. They won’t give up their profitable cash cow.
- GTA6’s NFTs have been rumoured again.
- Rockstar Games’ crypto ban casts doubt on the speculations.
Rockstar Software is making Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA 6), one of the most anticipated video games ever. Following years of conjecture, leaks, and rumours, there is now confirmation that the long-awaited game is coming shortly.
GTA V, a decade old, sold over 175 million copies worldwide. Players want something new.
As speculations mount, the game studio’s survival hinges on GTA 6. One rumor—Rockstar may join the metaverse hype—divides fans.
The rumours have cast doubt on Rockstar’s NFT ban.
On February 12, 2023, a Seeking Alpha Content writer revived GTA 6 NFT speculations. The author believed GTA 6 may capitalise on metaverse excitement.
The publisher fueled reports of Rockstar using Web3 components in the future release. Seeking Alpha’s piece revived the NFT debate after Rockstar banned crypto assets last year.
Crypto Twitter loves adding Web3 to GTA 6, but gamers might not. Several commenters suggested that GTA 6’s NFTs may be phoney cryptocurrency trading like GTA 5’s stock market trading.
NFTs may appear unlikely as Rockstar Games prohibited cryptocurrencies and NFTs in GTA V.
As Rockstar’s policy only outlaws “user-generated NFTs and crypto assets in online GTA 5 servers,” the rumours may have some merit. The game studio’s policy doesn’t restrict licenced NFTs.
