The Grand Theft Auto (GTA) game needs no introduction. Icon of video game culture, GTA has conquered many fans around the world. Its popularity is not about to end, because the next development of GTA promises a real incursion into the crypto universe.
GTA 6 dives into the crypto universe: a new era for the iconic game
The fifth installment of the popular video game Grand Theft Auto (GTA) will soon be obsolete after 10 years of existence. The sixth version of GTA should be presented to the public next year. Like its predecessor, GTA 6 should be long-lasting. In any case, this is the ambition suggested by recent information, not yet officially confirmed by the stakeholders. They indicate in particular that the franchise plans to materialize the use of cryptos in the game.
According to several sources, Rockstar Games, the company behind GTA, plans to allow users to be able to earn actual cryptos. For the moment, no official announcement has filtered as to the devices that will be put in place to achieve this objective.
However, we know that this could consist of a Play-to-Earn mechanism. This model had already been tested on a smaller scale on GTA 5. Thus, this version allowed players to trade stock markets, in real time, while being in the game, for example.
GTA wants to push back the barriers by integrating bitcoin
But GTA 6 wants to push the limits by testing this model on a large scale. The project is so ambitious that GTA 6 provides for the use of bitcoins as a means of payment or a reward token.
Suffice to say that the approach envisaged by Rockstar Games could allow players to generate income. Because the funds won during the game could be converted into real usable money. An old childhood dream come true. It must be said: this information has not been confirmed by any official source.
The developer of the project has nevertheless confirmed that the related work is progressing well. “Whenever we embark on a new project, our goal is always to go significantly further than what we have already done, and we are pleased to confirm that the active development of the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto series is on the right track”, he said. Given the number of GTA followers around the world, would this be a step closer to crypto adoption?
