Many players are waiting on Grand Theft Auto 6’s release date. It is one of the world’s most popular video game series. Most players were introduced to it in their childhoods. Some could only play it at an older family member’s house. The game’s title is a clue to the type of activities players can do. However, the carnage goes far beyond stealing cars. Grand Theft Auto has caused controversy several times across the years. Yet, new entries continue to come in. Players eagerly (and impatiently) await the next entry, GTA 6.
Grand Theft Auto 5 Has Been Around for Years
The release date for Grand Theft Auto 6 seems elusive for all players. This is because the game’s creator, Rockstar, still makes content for Grand Theft Auto 5. The game was initially released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013. Since then, the game has been upgraded for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 - as well as the Xbox counterpart.
For many players, this shows two things: the power of technology and how some things can be changed to keep up with current times. It also shows that Rockstar wants to continue working on something existing instead of making something new. Some players appreciate that new content is still being added. They enjoy that new missions, vehicles, clothes, and other features are still being put in the game. Other players would prefer the studio focus on creating a new game altogether.
Players are asking about the release date for GTA 6 every day. People often share how long they have been playing the game in a frustrated way. When the PS5 version of the game was first announced, they rewarded players on the PS4. Players received one million dollars of in-game currency every month until the PS5 version was released. For many players this was an incentive to keep playing.
The Grand Theft Auto 6 Release Date
Rockstar has not shared the release date for GTA 6. One issue that players have is the mystery surrounding the game. In 2023, video game studios pride themselves on being transparent with their players. Many games have dedicated Twitter accounts for assisting players with issues they may have in a game. Additionally, they have regularly posted blogs with announcements or reveals.
Franchises like Call of Duty use a Trello board where players can see specific aspects of the game being worked on. Rockstar has not been transparent about their process with GTA 6. In fact, the only thing players have heard is “the next entry in the series is well underway.” This came from a tweet from Rockstar in February 2022.
Players have been clinging to leaks and rumors. The only confirmed report suggests the year 2024 as a release window. This did not come directly from Rockstar but through Microsoft - which created Xbox. However, before this, the year 2025 was rumored and once again - not stated by Rockstar. Leaks have confirmed rumors of the game being set in a modern-day version of Vice City. That was the location of Grand Theft Auto’s 2002 game of the same name based in Miami. These leaks also confirmed that players could control at least two main protagonists in the story mode - a man (Jason) and a woman (Lucia). The latter would be a first for the series on next-gen consoles.
