The long-awaited GTA VI announcement is expected to happen this week and will mark a major milestone in the gaming industry.
The rumor mill is abuzz with speculation that the new game will embrace cryptocurrencies, potentially becoming the most significant crypto adaptation to date.
Probably no game in the world has been awaited with as much excitement by players as GTA VI. A trailer for GTA 6 is expected to be released next month on the occasion of Rockstar Games' 25th anniversary. The previous game, GTA V, had 11 million monthly active users as of 2022, demonstrating the immense popularity of the series.
The rumor that GTA VI, which is planned to be released in 2025, will include cryptocurrencies, caused excitement among both players and crypto enthusiasts. The influx of major companies into the Play-to-Earn (P2E) and metaverse sectors could be a major catalyst for crypto adoption.
On the other hand, China announced a 3-year development plan focused on Web3 and Metaverse in May. It may be possible for the country to open up the crypto market following Hong Kong's lead and potentially lead the next wave of crypto adoption.
According to cryptocurrency analysis company Layergg, the following altcoins may be affected by GTA 6 and other game/metaverse developments:
- Play-to-Earn: AXS, GALA, GMT
- Metaverse: SAND, MANA, APE
- Game, Platform: RON, BNX, FLOW
- Community: BEAMX, YGG
- Marketplace: PYR
