Microsoft’s Xbox is rumored to be buying the parent company of GTA 6 developer Rockstar Games. Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. owns the gaming studio, and according to an X user named G.O.A.T. GAMING (X/@iiamcloudman), the Head of Xbox is preparing to buy it.

Readers are advised to take this information with a grain of salt as neither Take-Two Interactive nor Microsoft has said anything on the matter. Thus, it remains a rumor for the moment.

While the news looked intriguing, many Grand Theft Auto fans did not believe the claims. A popular Rockstar Games insider named Ben (@videotechuk_) commented:

“Not happening. Stop misleading people”

Another user @thegamerzden19 stated:

“You are good with this estimate $28B. That is funny because the close on Friday for TTWO was 27.211B. M$ would have to go in with at least 35B to appease the stockholders, plus the upside of the forthcoming GTA6.”

User DD___12 (X/@JackCraka114646) said:

“Didn’t they buy activision for 70 billion. To buy take two it should be atleast 80 billion”
