Triple A becomes Hollywood and with it the problems: the right to strike will not affect Grand Theft Auto 6, declares Take-Two
There’s no getting around it: despite putting in all the hype we want, the right to strike remains sacred and is a thing to which Grand Theft Auto 6 will have to face, an eventuality that Take-Two Interactive seems to want to take it head on. Members of the actors’ union (SAG-AFTRAwhich we talked about for the controversial association between Xbox and the use of AI) voted to make the right official with a 98.32% plebisciteputting the knife on the side of the handle for the actors in case the terms of theInteractive Media Agreement (“interactive media agreement”, ed.) were not acceptable. Negotiations with SAG-AFTRA include multiple publishers, including Take-Two.

Triple-A Turmoil: Take-Two and the Potential of a Strike for Grand Theft Auto 6 Voice Actors
The issue of negotiations (so far failed due to, in fact, “unacceptable terms”) between SAG-AFTRA and publishers is delicate, but Strauss Zelnick Take-Two talked about it during (what else?) a meeting with shareholders. The question was a burning one right away: “If voice actors and actors went on strike, would it slow down production of the next Grand Theft Auto at Rockstar? Do you have the right contracts?” There answer she didn’t wait long. “Negotiations will resume next week,” Zelnick replied. “We are optimistic, we value all our talents as well as the excellent relationships established with them. We look forward to reaching a fair agreement for all. My approach has been that in every branch of entertainment I’ve worked in, and development is protected in every case.” The trailer arrives next month.
