GTA 6 Release Likely Towards End of This Generation, More Details Leaked
GTA 6 is a game that nearly everybody in the gaming world is waiting for, despite no announcements from developer Rockstar Games. We don’t know the release date, setting or even the official name, but the latest claims of reliable insiders is pointing to one thing – it’s not releasing any time before 2023 at the earliest.
The rumour mill started off with a video from Tom Henderson, in which he claimed that the game is still early in development. Rockstar Games is apparently taking heavy inspirations from GTA Online’s roaring success, and adapting many of its mechanics to GTA VI. The game will allegedly feature an expanding map post-launch in a modern Vice City, which is tipped to be not any time before 2024.
While these are some pretty big claims, they don’t seem to be completely baseless with Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier claiming that everything in the video matches up with information from his own sources. We knew that GTA 6 is years away owing to Rockstar’s lack of any teasers, which usually start far away from any release window, but it looks like the developer is taking extra care with its flagship franchise’s latest entry.
Idk why everyone thinks that I said GTA VI was coming in 2023. Everything Tom Henderson has said about the game matches up with what I’ve heard

Talking about the release date, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising if Rockstar plans to wait and polish the game till 2024-2025. After all, development times have only increased for the studio, releasing only one major AAA game during the PS4-Xbox One era. GTA as a franchise holds a much larger appeal, and waiting long enough to have a large enough install base in the face of current shortages seems to be a reasonable move.
Grand Theft Auto 6 sits without a release date or any official announcements from Rockstar Games, whose last game Red Dead Redemption 2 came out on PS4 and Xbox One in 2018 and PC a year later. Meanwhile GTA V is set to be re-released in an enhanced form for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles later this year.
