As if fans weren't already losing their minds with excitement over Grand Theft Auto VI, the big boss at Take-Two have hinted that it's 'nothing short of perfection'.
Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of the gaming software company, hasn't held back on teasing fans.
Which is all the more excruciating considering we'll have to wait a while for the game to finally launch.
Oh, the heartbreak of it all.
Still though, if you think you can bear it, here's what Strauss had to say about the most highly anticipated game of the decade.
Strauss had been speaking to The Aarthi and Sriram Show when the topic of GTA VI came up in conversation.
He did well to keep any spoilers or details under wraps, but while speaking about the difficulty of making solid sequels, he said: "I think that's a challenge that the folks at Rockstar face every time there's a new iteration of Grand Theft Auto.
"It needs to be something you've never seen before on the one hand, and it needs to reflect the feeling that we have about Grand Theft Auto. That's a big challenge for the team.
"Now, Rockstar's answer is just seek perfection; seek nothing short of perfection, and we'll get there."
To say that there's pressure on Rockstar to make GTA VI as good as its predecessor GTA V would certainly be an understatement.
After all, GTA V is the second biggest-selling video game of all time, only after Minecraft.
And Rockstar are reportedly spending unimaginable money to develop the highly-anticipated follow up.
When GTA V first launched all the way back in September 2013, it was estimated that the total budget came to around $265 million.
And if you thought that was a lot, GTA YouTuber INTER recently reported that this next Grand Theft Auto instalment is projected to cost around $1 billion, if you take marketing into account.
If those projections are true, then it'd make GTA VI the most expensive game ever.
When it comes to release dates, however, the Rockstar gang have remained tight-lipped, though Strauss has teased fans with a massive hint during his latest investor call.
The Take-Two CEO hinted that Fiscal 2025 would be an 'highly-anticipated' year for the company.
I wonder why...
During the call, Strauss reportedly stated the he expected the company to 'achieve over $8 billion in Net Bookings'.
Strauss later told gamesindustry.biz that those claims weren't linked to any 'specific titles' by Take-Two, but fans are still clinging to it as a sign.
Whatever helps us all get through the agonizing wait a little easier, right?
