GTA 6 release date – what new announcement means and what we know


Last Updated:

So it finally happened, Rockstar confirmed the worst kept secret in the history of really bad secrets in a causal last paragraph of a blog. Grand Theft Auto 6 is underway and has been for some time. What on earth does it mean though? When can we expect to finally get our hands on the game and do we really know anything more than we did before the announcement?

The news that the game has been underway for some time is encouraging. At least that means Rockstar hasn’t just opened up a new notepad document and titled it ‘Ideas’. If they had that would obviously mean the game was years away – and while it still might be, it seems unlikely that progress has not been made for quite some time.

With the success of GTA V constantly keeping the developers busy, it has perhaps taken off some of the pressure to get the next game rushed out. It’s also not like Rockstar has been shy of success in the meantime with RDR2 filling any holes that have appeared in the bank balance.

GTA V sold over 150 million copies and that is so far, so while a sequel was inevitable, information on when it might arrive has been unusually hard to come by. Things began to get mysterious when a Take 2 financial report in the middle of January seemed to suggest that Take 2 expected in its business plan to earn a huge amount of revenue during 2024. Many think that there are very few ways of doing that – unless they are signing Cristiano Ronaldo, surely it could only mean Grand Theft Auto 6 was penciled in for then?

The truth is, it’s all speculation still at this point, and we can only join in with the rest of the internet. The announcement, or confirmation, whatever you want to call it was a little odd and very low-key, containing zilcho information too, so here in the newsrooms, we are being given no bones at all.

When you get to the levels of profit and business a Grand Theft Auto game brings in, business, in general, is done a little differently. Investors will always find out things ahead of consumers – the days of the players actually mattering are long gone. We are merely the tools that carry the wallets. And as soon as we know when you will need to open said wallet, we will be updating this page and letting you know, so get it bookmarked.
