If you’re a fan of Grand Theft Auto, you’re probably wondering when GTA 6 will become available. And you’re not alone: thousands of gamers around the world are asking when developer Rockstar Games would release the latest installment of the popular video game franchise.
Unfortunately, finding the answer to this question since Rockstar itself has not given any hint concerning the GTA 6 release date. The only thing we know for sure is that the video game developer has been thinking about the installment since 2013. In an article dated October 2013 on Develop-Online.net, former Rockstar North president Leslie Benzies revealed that they didn’t know exactly what GTA 6 would be but that they had “about 45 years worth of ideas” for the game.
There are rumors that GTA 6 is due to be released in 2020. However, since they’re not backed by any strong evidence, it’s best to take these rumors with a grain of salt. If they turn out to be true, though, the timing does make sense — if Rockstar had been working on GTA 6 since 2013, they would have had seven years to develop it by the time 2020 rolls around. Seven years is usually more than enough time to put together a functioning game, no matter how advanced and complicated it is.
Locations and Console Compatibility
Aside from hinting at a 2020 release date, rumors have also revealed that the GTA 6 map will include three locations: the U.S., London, and Vice City. Some reports say that the map will cover the entire United States; if this turns out to be true, GTA 6 will have one of the biggest gaming maps among video games.
There are also different speculations on the console that GTA 6 will debut on. Some say that Rockstar is waiting for Sony and Microsoft to launch their next-gen consoles so it could time the release of GTA 6 alongside these new devices. Others, meanwhile, think Microsoft’s Project Scorpio will be released anytime soon, which can mean that the new GTA game will be launched with the Sony PS5.
