One of the most anticipated games to come out in the following years is rumored to integrate a cryptocurrency payment system in it.
Grand Theft Auto 6 will be the next rendition of Rockstar’s biggest franchise. The game is expected to be released in 2024, and little to nothing is known about the game yet.
However, Rockstar was recently the victim of a hacking attack that resulted in one of the biggest leaks in gaming history. The hacker released several clips about the GTA 6’s story and gameplay.
The leaks resulted in a huge debate on Twitter about what innovations will Rockstar bring to the next rendition of this beloved franchise.
Famous Twitter tippers believe that GTA 6 will have an in-game cryptocurrency. While the claims have not been proven, the integration of cryptocurrency in one of the most popular video game titles in history would be a significant development for the Crypto sector and would increase its visibility.
According to the speculations, characters who are bitcoin millionaires can give tasks that are compensated in cryptocurrencies in the online version of the game.
If the rumors are true, GTA 6 will be at the forefront of mass cryptocurrency adoption for AAA games.
Today, cryptocurrency in games is still subjective to the “play to earn” type of games. Despite a relatively good adoption of these games, gaming studios still struggle to balance out the gaming aspect with the earning potential of in-game tokenization.
This results in several somewhat monotonous games like Bomb Crypto – in which the player is playing exclusively for earning potential – making the actual gameplay feel a lot more like a chore than an actual video game.
The inclusion of digital assets in one of the biggest gaming franchises in the world could very well be the “turning point” for cryptocurrency adoption among gamers.
Rockstar Has Not Confirmed The Rumors
Ever since the leak, Rockstar chose to remain mostly silent about GTA 6.
That is probably a smart move given that the game is still in its early stages of development, and a lot can change until the game is released in 2 to 3 years from now.
GTA 6 was announced in February of 2022.
