MeriPodcast 15×18: GTA 6 and the purchase of Bungie by PlayStation

The video game world never ceases to amaze us. That there was a new Grand Theft Auto in development is something we could sense, but now it is one hundred percent confirmed. The title is in progress and Rockstar Games has given the first details; although he has not indicated his name or release date. This is the first topic of our debate, what can we expect from this new title in the saga?

We tell you our ideas and what we would like —along with what we would not like— to be present in GTA 6, the successor to GTA 5, a video game capable of selling a whopping 160 million units. The industry has changed a lot; as well as technological progress and consumption habits. More customization options? Destructible environments? Multiple protagonists? We go over all the possibilities.

GTA 6, when will it come out? Bets and possibilities

On the other hand, if only an episode ago we talked about the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft, this time we do the same with the purchase agreement of Bungie by PlayStation; although the Destiny team will continue to be fully independent. During the second block of the program we break down all the information on this purchase, which has a value of 3,600 million dollars, and we try to reason what it means for Sony, the reason for this multiplatform studio condition and how both Microsoft and PlayStation will advance in their search for new studies for its ecosystem.

Regarding this Wednesday’s Nintendo Direct, we can only comment on its announcement, since it caught us in the middle of recording and we do not know what Nintendo will have shown on the night of this February 9, 2022.

Join Paula, Borja, Alejandro and Sergio Carlos in this program. See you in a couple of weeks with the latest news. What surprises will the exciting world of videogames hold for us? Next week it’s the retro team’s turn.
