Build a Rocket Boy Games’ Everywhere, made up of Rockstar Games veterans, is looking to dethrone Grand Theft Auto and now has the money to do so.
It seems that Grand Theft Auto YOU could finally face tough competition in the sandbox genre, like Everywhere, a rival game developed by the formerRockstar North Build employees at Rocket Boy Games, received a financial injection of over $ 40 million from various investors. While it is time for the Grand Theft Auto franchise is challenged by a modern AAA endeavor, having outperformed its older competitors Driver is Saints Row years ago, the source of that (obviously legal) money is a little troubling.
Deny how Rockstar and company could do, Grand Theft Auto VI it’s obviously happening at some point, most likely during the upcoming ninth generation of consoles. Grand Theft Auto V and most importantly, GTA Online are cash cows that have allowed the developer-publisher to milk the last two generations of consoles for all they are worth, and have been worth A lot. New generation doors of Grand Theft Auto V for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S indicate that the last installment will not be ready until a year or two after the start of the life of the new consoles, but the publisher Take-Two sees no doubt that it is looking forward to add the blast in short-term revenue that shareholder daydreams are made to accumulate slightly more slowly GTA Online stacks of cash.

Having founded Build a Rocket Boy Games alongside a team of other former Rockstar veterans and announced the Grand Theft Auto-like it Everywhere meantime, Telegraph (Thank you, VGC) Now he reports that the new studio has obtained a sizable sum of £ 32 million (about $ 41 million) from investors for its Everywhere project, with the lion’s share of the money coming from the powerful Chinese company Netease.
Building this kind of mixed story-centered vehicular chaos with multiplayer capabilities isn’t cheap or quick, especially not for a new studio whose game only existed as design documents and concept art until recently. While some studios like it Star CitizenCloud Imperium Games really knows how to put it away with no results, very few development studios worthy of their salt could so easily take advantage of the sudden $ 40 million profit that Build a Rocket Boy now enjoys. That said, players’ brows should be raised when they learn that the studio’s benefactor is Netease, a Chinese conglomerate that (like Tencent) operates as an arm of the totalitarian Chinese government and already has its hands up to the wrist in the cookie industry’s cookie jar. games, gaining influence and power over companies around the world.
While the always swollen Grand Theft Auto franchise and brand continue to insist that they don’t get too big for their tight pants, Rockstar’s hegemony over the sandbox genre and player wallets could collapse if Build a Rocket Boy gets it right Everywhere. Regardless of the game on top of the next generation of consoles, it’s not hard to assume that consumers will miss out on the worst.
