The upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto VI has sparked speculation about whether the game will feature an in-game cryptocurrency. However, a lawyer suggests that this is unlikely due to regulatory uncertainty surrounding crypto in the US. The lawyer explains that there is a legal grey area that may deter game developers from incorporating virtual currencies until regulatory clarity is achieved. Additionally, the Securities and Exchange Commission's anti-crypto stance and aggressive actions against companies offering crypto services may contribute to Rockstar Games' hesitation. However, there is a possibility that the SEC's previous no-action letter to a crypto gaming project could be relevant in Rockstar Games' case. This letter stated that fixed-priced in-game tokens are not securities as they are used for game utility rather than investment. Nevertheless, the lawyer points out that price fixing is not a common practice in the crypto and decentralized finance space. Overall, due to regulatory uncertainty, it is unlikely that GTA VI will include an in-game cryptocurrency, but the gaming giant may still surprise us.
