GTA 6 incoming

Let’s just call it the gaming week because nothing major happened apart from a few big gaming related stuff. There is a tease about a new GTA game, new gaming laptops has arrived in Indian markets and Sony buys Bungie. Let’s go over them.

Sony buys Bungie, the maker of Halo and Destiny, for $3.6 billion

This news comes just after Microsoft made a big headline when they acquired Blizzard + Activision.

Bungie is now under Sony Entertainment but will be a seperate entity under them

Bungie Studios, which developed the original Halo and their most recent hit Destiny, is now a part of the Sony family. Although they will be a separate unit and their games will not be Playstation exclusive.

GTA 6 incoming? Development is underway for the next GTA project

Many of us have graduated from college, university and working in a job since the release of GTA 5 but there was no news about the next instalment given how popular the GTA5 is, even today.

That is, until now! Although the title of the game is not confirmed officially, Rockstar Games has confirmed that the next game is already under development. There is no reason to believe that the next game wouldn’t be GTA 6.
