It’s Official: Grand Theft Auto 6 is coming

Grand Theft Auto 6

Rockstar has confirmed that a new Grand Theft Auto 6 is coming.

“With the unprecedented longevity of GTAV, we know many of you have been asking us about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series,” the studio said in the latest Grand Theft Auto community update.

“With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered—and we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway. We look forward to sharing more as soon as we are ready, so please stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official details.”

It’s not necessarily Grand Theft Auto 6 in name—a full, formal title wasn’t given—but given how Rockstar has named the first five mainline games in the series, I think it’s a reasonable bet pattern will continue. Whatever it ends up being called, it will be very interesting to see how the tone of the game compares to previous entries in the series.

There’s no sign of a release target, although the great likelihood is that it’s still a long way off. In January, analysts predicted that the next Grand Theft Auto game wouldn’t be out until sometime in Take-Two Interactive’s 2024 fiscal year, dropping it sometime between April 1, 2023, and March 31, 2024.
