Multiple sources suggest that Grand Theft Auto Six is in development, still 4 years away

Multiple sources suggest that Grand Theft Auto Six is in development, still 4 years away

Released initially for PS3 and Xbox 360 way back in 2013, Grand Theft Auto V is the gift that keeps on giving. But while you may think that Rockstar is more than happy to sit back and let GTA Online bring in the big bucks, various gaming insiders have corroborated that a sixth mainline entry is officially in development. That’s the good news. The bad news is that we won’t be seeing it until 2025 earliest, if these rumours are to be believed.

News of GTA Six’s potential release plan was first circulated by Tom Henderson, an insider known for revealing accurate details on as yet unannounced games. Henderson previously got the wheels turning with a video posted on his YouTube channel last week, where he voiced that Rockstar’s next GTA instalment would release in either 2024 or 2025. This would mark a 10 year gap between GTA V and its sequel, if true.

So why is this all not just pure speculation? Well, because yesterday over on Twitter, Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier responded to a question, where he confirmed that he had heard similar details to the ones Henderson revealed. “Everything Tom Henderson has said about the game matches up with what I’ve heard,” he said. See the tweet below:

Other details Henderson mentions in his video include the fact that GTA Six will feature a “moderately sized” map that will continue to expand and evolve over time, is likely to be set in a modern version of Vice City, and will feature a major online component. These details aren’t exactly surprising. As for the reason why GTA Six is taking so long to make? Sources claim it’s due to Rockstar wanting to be more conscious of mental health amongst employees. Not surprising considering the studio’s crunch culture criticisms not so long ago.

Are you excited for GTA Six to release some time in the next four years? Here’s hoping this alleged return to Vice City will have been worth the wait.
