A new Grand Theft Auto mainline game is in the works, ending years of fan speculation and nearly a decade since the series’ previous installment.
Rockstar has finally unveiled Grand Theft Auto 6, but in typical fashion, they are keeping the game’s specifics under wraps for the time being.
Recent rumors have given us a better idea of what Grand Theft Auto 6 will be like, and with GTA 5 out on next-gen systems, we can only hope that Rockstar is putting all of its focus into the next installment.
There is no confirmed date or timeframe for the release of Grand Theft Auto 6. However, there have been rumors that a gameplay trailer would be released later this year, so we may hear more soon.
Of all the future games, Grand Theft Auto 6 is the most elusive to predict. Rockstar is typically quite watchful about leaks, and thus far, not much has gotten past them.
Nonetheless, we do have some information to reveal about what Grand Theft Auto 6 might entail, where it might be located, and when we might be able to play it.
We’ve compiled the most recent reports, rumors, and official information on GTA 6 to keep you informed. Stay tuned for further updates to this page as new information becomes available.
Is Theft Auto 6 Already Out And About?
While most reviewers/playtesters who may be checking out GTA 6 right now are obligated to remain silent due to non-disclosure agreements, it appears that famed Twitch broadcaster, xQc, has a mind of his own.
The streamer in the above video is talking frankly about how impressed he was with the variety of RP roles available right off the off.
Surprisingly, though, the clip was taken down from Twitch only a few hours after it had been uploaded. The harm, if you will, has been done, though.
Because it is already being play-tested and XQC has declared that development is complete, Grand Theft Auto 6 is close to its release date. This suggests that either the game’s trailer or release date could be revealed sooner than planned.
When will the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 6 be released?
Even Rockstar workers whom Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier spoke with for his widely-read story on GTA 6 were in the dark about when the game would be released.
The next Grand Theft Auto is expected to launch somewhere in Take-2024 Two’s fiscal year (which runs from April 2023 to March 2024), according to a Bloomberg article, although developers are doubtful.
Furthermore, Schreier says “Some iteration of the game has been in the works since 2014. People that were contacted for this story indicated they were unaware of a concrete release date for the game, but estimated at least two years.”
Is a PC version of GTA 6 planned?
It seems like a safe wager. Despite Rockstar’s inconsistent track record with PC ports, the huge success of GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 PC editions should encourage the developer to give the platform more attention.
And Rockstar obviously agrees, because in 2019 it released the Rockstar Games Launcher for PC. It seems unlikely that the developer would offer its own games launcher if it didn’t intend to host its future games there, including the widely anticipated GTA 6.
So, we can anticipate a pause between the console and PC versions of GTA 6. Both GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 took nearly a full year to make it to PC.
New GTA 6 Details Revealed by Rockstar Employees
Fans of the Grand Theft Auto series have recently been poring over the LinkedIn profiles of Rockstar employees Nathan Hunt, a senior cinematics camera artist, and Ryan Schacter.
A senior animator, in the hopes that they will reveal new information about the highly anticipated sixth installment in the series. Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead: Online, and Grand Theft Auto Online were all included as games on Hunt’s profile alongside Grand Theft Auto 6 and an explanation of his responsibilities.
Some of the aspects, such as Hunt’s participation with “…Seamless transitions from cinematics to in-game,” have led to increasing speculation about GTA 6, with the reintroduction of many playable protagonists being implied.
Meanwhile, the area of Schacter’s page devoted to the work on GTA 6 provides us a much greater sense of what could be coming in the game.
However, it is important to note that since this information has leaked, the two developers have removed any references to GTA 6 from their profiles, and Hunt has even made his account private.
