According to Rockstar "active development for the next entry" is "well underway," and the company will enter its "next phase of growth" in the next fiscal year.

It's hardly surprising that Rockstar Games has already invested years in the development of GTA 6 given how long it takes to produce open landscapes of the same calibre as GTA 5. We've had our first concrete hints about when the game will release, but Rockstar, like other developers, prefers to keep its secrets close to its chest until they're close to the conclusion of development.

Last year, early GTA 6 alleged gameplay footage and lines of the game's source code were published online. A statement from Rockstar on Twitter indicates that an unauthorized third party was able to access and download data from their systems, including video used in the creation of the open-world game.

All We Know About GTA 6 Leaks and Release Date

On 18 September 2022, 90 recordings containing 53 minutes and 26 seconds of alleged GTA 6 test footage were leaked. As reported by Bloomberg earlier that year, early test footage shows the player taking on the roles of a male and female character as part of a Bonnie and Clyde-like combo dubbed Jason and Lucia.

One of the most memorable sequences features the user playing Lucia as she and Jason hold up a diner, replicating the famous scene from Pulp Fiction. Other recordings show Lucia standing on a street corner in broad daylight, watching cars pass by, while Jason goes to a nightclub.

According to Rockstar"active development for the next entry" is "well underway," and the company will enter its "next phase of growth" in Fiscal 2025. It is possible that this will change.

According to Tez2, a trusted insider at Rockstar, information regarding the release date of GTA 6 suggests that the game is scheduled to be launched during the holiday season of 2024.

Tez2 also mentions that they “personally see an announcement as a given this year. I don’t think the upper management is in a position to delay further to holiday 2025/2026”. Rockstar could meet this deadline by “cutting more potions of the game to package into DLCs to release later on” as it “may be more sustainable for management than delaying further”.
