The most popular game publishers in the world, Rockstar Games are known for putting out Triple-A titles with each release. The GTA franchise is at the top of video game publishers. The last release franchise made was way back in 2013.
The GTA fans are desperately waiting for the GTA 6 to release and is likely to be the next release by the franchise. However, Rockstar games is still keeping the game release under wraps and has not released any date regarding the same yet.
Now, everyone wants to know the answer of the question that when will GTA 6 be released. But there are a lot of factors that will affect the game’s expected release date. For now the game won’t come out anytime soon because of the following factors.
1) Bad PR for Rockstar after Red Redemption
After the Rockstar Games developed Red Dead Redemption, a conversation sparked around about the toxic culture being spread by the franchise.
People say that it has been seven years since when the last GTA game was released. But they seem to forget that another mammoth title was released between 2013 and 2020.
It was a massive undertaking by Rockstar Games but Kotaku ended up launching an investigation into the company’s work culture.
So because of this thing Rockstar Games will take time to Re-built up and won’t release the game any soon.
2) Report by Kotaku
Kotaku’s report has revealed a lot about GTA, Here are some of the facts:
- The game is being developed under the working title “Project AMERICAS”.
- It is reportedly set in the 80s.
- As of April 2020, the game is in early stages of development.
- GTA 6 is highly inspired by Netflix’s Narcos.
We mentioned that the game is in early stages of development as of April 2020, so the release date is going to be farther in future, may be 2022 or 2023.
3) The success of GTA Online
As GTA Online got a lot successful, the company wouldn’t want to drop this momentum and focus on a new project, that is GTA 6.
4) GTA 5 getting a re-release on the PS5
Rockstar games have further announced that GTA 5 will be re-released on next-gen consoles like PS5 which means that fans will have to wait a lot for the GTA 6.
Keeping above points in mind, we can expect that GTA 6 might release in 2022 or even 2023. The earliest date can be late 2021.
