Fans have been waiting eight years for a new Grand Theft Auto title, which is the longest period between games in the series’ history. One leaker, who has a solid track record, has shared information–the next entry won’t release until 2025. This is backed up by Take-Two’s recent shareholder statements.
Tom Henderson–who previously leaked Call of Duty and Battlefield 2042 details–has released a new video claiming that GTA 6 will be set in a modern-day version of Vice City, but this is contrary to previous reports that GTA 6 would be set in the 1980s. Henderson is also claiming that Rockstar wants to ensure their staff has freedom when creating content for GTA Online.
Henderson also mentioned that the map for GTA 6 might change over time, similar to how the Fortnite map goes through regular overhauls. It seems that GTA 6 will also have multiple playable characters, which GTA 5 first introduced into the series.
Even if these rumors are true, fans are going to be waiting for quite some time. Henderson stated that Rockstar is putting an emphasis on employee wellbeing since reports detailing the crunch work conditions that were implemented before Red Dead Redemption 2 came out.
The new GTA is believed to be coming releasing on the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Because the new consoles are so fresh to the market, Rockstar is allegedly waiting for more systems to be sold to maximize sales. Henderson added that Rockstar wants to avoid delaying the game, so GTA 6 won’t be announced early.
