GTA 6 Development Is “Well Underway,” As Confirmed By Rockstar

Rock­star Games has offi­cial­ly con­firmed that the next Grand Theft Auto game is in devel­op­ment. What’s more, it’s not in its infan­cy either, as Rock­star said in a blog post that the new project is “well under­way.” Whether or not the game will actu­al­ly be called GTA 6, is yet to be known.

The stu­dio did not reveal any specifics about the new game, which is rumored to have a Fort­nite-style evolv­ing map. The new game is like­ly being devel­oped by sev­er­al Rock­star stu­dios, as the com­pa­ny has done for some of its big­ger releas­es, like Red Dead Redemp­tion II.

Of course, Rock­star is ready to give any specifics on the next GTA, the com­pa­ny did say its gen­er­al phi­los­o­phy with new games is to “sig­nif­i­cant­ly move beyond” what they’ve already achieved.

With the unprece­dent­ed longevi­ty of GTA V, we know many of you have been ask­ing us about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to sig­nif­i­cant­ly move beyond what we have pre­vi­ous­ly delivered–and we are pleased to con­firm that active devel­op­ment for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well under­way,” Rock­star said. “We look for­ward to shar­ing more as soon as we are ready…”

It’s real­ly not sur­pris­ing that Rock­star is mak­ing a new GTA, as it’s been report­ed for quite some time that the stu­dio has been devel­op­ing it. GTA V and GTA Online have con­tin­ued to do well through­out its life­cy­cle (with the base game sell­ing over 155 mil­lion copies), bring­ing plen­ty to believe that Rock­star had no rea­son to begin devel­op­ment on anoth­er title in the series. 

As for when the next GTA might be released, well, we are not privy to that infor­ma­tion. How­ev­er, some ana­lysts believe it could launch as soon as 2023.
