If Grand Theft Auto 5 has been available since 2013 now, it seems for the very first time in its history that sales of the latter are slowing down. Be careful though, nothing very dramatic, but it could perhaps be a harbinger of a certain weariness among the players.
GTA 5 sales slow for the first time in its history
It was during last summer that we learned without too much surprise that GTA 5 continued its rise to success with no less than 170 million sales recorded worldwide and since the publication of the title.

If GTA 5 continues to sell despite everything, players have been waiting for several months now for any official announcement from GTA 6. And if the studio has been the victim of the biggest leak in history with no less than 90 videos of the game published on the web, it could be that the developers will reveal the first images of the title in a few weeks.
If several rumors announced a reveal of the game during the month of October, these unfortunately turned out to be false, to the great misfortune of the players. However, a global presentation in the coming weeks of the first images of the game cannot be ruled out since, according to the latest job offer published by the starred firm, the studio is looking for a marketing director. digital in order to promote the game. Then it's time for promotion...
