GTA 6: Release Date, Leaks, And More

Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) is one of the most highly anticipated upcoming games. Fans eagerly await any details from developer Rockstar Games about this next instalment in the blockbuster open-world action series. While Rockstar has kept tight-lipped, there are plenty of rumours and leaks to dissect in the meantime. This article will summarize everything we know so far about GTA 6’s potential release date, platforms, setting, story, gameplay features, and more.

Potential Release Date of GTA 6

Rockstar Games is set to release the first trailer for GTA 6 in early December 2023. However, the developer has not confirmed an actual release date or window yet. Parent company Take-Two Interactive recently projected over $8 billion in net bookings for its 2025 fiscal year. This significant revenue spike suggests GTA 6 could launch sometime between April 2024 and March 2025.

GTA 6: Release Date, Leaks, And More

For reference, there was almost a two-year gap between the announcement and release of GTA 5. GTA 6 was first teased back in February 2022. Given the increased scope and complexity of GTA games, it may take even longer than two years after the announcement for GTA 6 to hit shelves.


GTA 6 will likely launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The technical capabilities of these platforms can support Rockstar’s ambitious vision. PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions seem unlikely due to hardware limitations.

Historically, Rockstar ports GTA games to PC later than the console. GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 both launched on PC over a year after the console release. PC players may need to wait for GTA 6 as well.

Setting and Story

Numerous leaks point to GTA 6 returning to Vice City, Rockstar’s fictional take on Miami. However, the game may also include missions and locales across North and South America. Rumours indicate the story will centre around drug cartels, corruption, and conflicts from the 1980s through the modern day.

Some speculate GTA 6 may feature multiple time periods. The plot could involve real-world events and figures like Pablo Escobar, the CIA, and the Iran-Contra scandal. However, these historical elements are currently unconfirmed speculations.

Gameplay Features

Based on footage which was leaked in the mid of 2022, GTA 6 gameplay will include:

Dynamic Weather and Economy

Since GTA 6 will be based in Vice City which is a fictional version of  Miami, players might experience weather events like hurricanes and snowstorms which could impact the environment and gameplay.  Even in the original GTA Vice City, Rockstar hit it out of the park with the environmental elements in the city. 

An advanced economy will reflect inflation, and deflation, and react to player actions. Players have been experiencing a quite static and less interactive economy in the GTA franchise. However, with macroeconomic factors, players will experience much realism.

Branching Storylines

GTA 6 may offer branching narrative paths leading to multiple endings based on player choice. Both the GTA instalments of HD universe feature multiple endings and players love to pick between one. So it is very likely that Rockstar Games will continue this tradition with GTA 6.

Expanded Online Mode

A revamped online mode could connect with the single-player story and allow cross-platform play. In addition to that, Rockstar is already working with  FiveM and RedM who created the popular GTA RP server. So players can expect a better immersive multiplayer experience this time with GTA 6

Playable Protagonists

For the first time in the history of the GTA franchise, players will be getting a female protagonist. Players can switch between controlling one male and one female protagonist. This builds on the multi-protagonist structure introduced in GTA 5. Players liked the multi-protagonist structure as it gives players a much diverse experience as players go through multiple character developments and doesn't stick to a single character.

Why It's Anticipated

The Grand Theft Auto franchise has consistently delivered groundbreaking open-world experiences. GTA 6 seems poised to push the envelope even further with its scope, details, and new features.

Rockstar's reputation for high-quality games with compelling narratives, combined with the potential for technical innovation, fuels the incredible hype surrounding GTA 6. If the developer can successfully build off past successes, this new entry could redefine interactive entertainment in unprecedented ways.

In addition to that, it has been 10 long years since Rockstar Games released the legendary GTA 5 so players finally want to move out from Los Santos and experience an all-new city in the world of Grand Theft Auto.


While specifics remain under wraps, the tidbits we have about GTA 6 suggest it will be Rockstar’s most ambitious release yet. As anticipation reaches a fever pitch, all eyes turn to the big trailer reveal planned for December 2023. One thing is certain - GTA 6 is shaping up to be a defining game of the decade.
