What Could Be the Possible Release Date for Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 6?
When is Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) releasing? This seems to be the biggest question in the minds of many Rockstar fans and this anticipation has only increased ever since the announcement by the studio stating that the trailer for this upcoming title will be released sometime during December. With this new information out on the table, many reliable leakers are attempting to figure out the possible release date for this GTA 6. Let’s take a look.
Estimated Release Date of Grand Theft Auto 6
Creating an open-world environment that can beat the likes of Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 is not even close to being an easy feat. Unsurprisingly, the studio has already been working on this title for years now, considering the unfortunate incident of the game leaking on 18th September 2022 that showed 53 minutes and 26 seconds of test footage separated into 90 videos.
Taking this and past trends into account, we can expect GTA 6 to release sometime between 1st April 2024 and 31st March 2025. This is also based on Take-Two Interactive’s targets for the fiscal year of 2025 which was first showcased in Bloomberg’s reports.
They also mentioned the announcement of the trailer which was made in the form of a post on X / Twitter.
Since information regarding the announcement has come out, Take-Two’s stock has also seen a significant increase in share price from $125.02 to $136.52. Furthermore, the company also attempts to hit a target of over $8 Billion in net bookings and $1 Billion in adjusted unrestricted operating cash flow. One highly possible way for them to reach these numbers by fiscal year 2025 can be through the release of this highly anticipated title.
The information regarding the release date is also supported by claims from a member of the GTA Forums called Tez2 who says that Rockstar’s aimed deadline was holiday 2024, which has been pushed back numerous times over the last few years and it might unfortunately slip into early 2025 as well. They also say that they do not see the possibility of the upper management delaying the game further than the holiday of 2025 or 2026. Rockstar might meet this deadline by separating portions of the title into DLCs which might be more sustainable for the management.
That is all the information regarding the plausible release date of Grand Theft Auto 6. Please take this with a grain of salt as they are based on leaks, rumors, and past trends.
