While Rockstar Games hasn't provided a specific release date for GTA 6, the company has given a release window with it scheduled to drop in 2025.

Why is GTA 6 release taking so long?

The firm that produced the Grand Theft Auto franchise, Rockstar Games, revealed that "the next edition in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway" and that it will be released for the first time in February 2022. The development of GTA 6, like any other AAA video game title, is hindered by several issues that affect its progression and release schedule. The most notable was the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought the globe to a standstill.


When is GTA 6 coming out?

GTA 6 will be coming out somewhere 2025, as revealed by Rockstar Games via the official trailer for the game and a press release released by the company. The gaming giant also made an official announcement in June 2022 and in November 2023, they revealed that a trailer for GTA 6 would be unveiled in December 2023. The firm also revealed that they're utilizing all their resources and time to develop GTA 6.

Rockstar Games have made quite the profit from GTA V. As a game released back in 2013; it's still one of the most played games. And considering how much money Grand Theft Auto 5 has brought in, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the developer isn’t quite ready to retire its most successful creation just yet.

We are very excited to let you know that in early December, we will release the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto. We look forward to many more years of sharing these experiences with all of you.

Thank you,
