GTA 6 Will Be Out In 2025
The last Grand Theft Auto game came out 8 years ago, which is the longest gap between games in the series’ history by a substantial margin. One leaker with a reliable track record has released information, however, that says wait until Grand Theft Auto 6 releases won’t be over until 2025–something which Take-Two’s statements during a shareholder event backed up recently.
Tom Henderson–who leaked Call of Duty and Battlefield 2042 details–has released a new video and in it, he said that GTA 6 will be set in a modern-day version of Vice City. This goes contrary to earlier reports that GTA 6 would be set in the 1980s, with Henderson said that developer Rockstar wants to guarantee as much independence as possible for its staff when it comes to producing content for GTA Online.
Henderson also talked about the potential for the GTA 6 map to change over time, similar to how Epic Games frequently overhauls its Fortnite map during end-of-season events. There was also a mention of GTA 6 having many playable characters, something which GTA 5 introduced to the series when it was first released. Even if these rumors are true, fans are going to be in for a long wait due to various factors. Henderson said that Rockstar has placed a higher emphasis on employee wellbeing in the wake of several reports detailing the crunch work conditions that were executed before Red Dead Redemption 2 was released.
GTA 6 is believed to be coming to the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC and, as they are new to the market, Rockstar is supposedly waiting for more systems to be marketed so as to maximize sales. Henderson also added that since Rockstar wants to withdraw delaying the game, GTA 6 won’t be published early and thanks to the steady revenue stream of GTA 5, Rockstar has the richness of being able to take its time with developing on this sequel.
