While anticipation continues to build for Grand Theft Auto VI, an industry insider suggests that Rockstar Games may put all its eggs in one basket by making GTA VI the only game it releases for the current PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X generation. This information stems from a post by a well-known leaker, AccountNGT, who speculates that Rockstar could focus solely on GTA VI for these consoles.
Early-stage gameplay footage for GTA VI has already been leaked online, further fueling excitement for the game. It is expected to be released no later than March 2025, according to the latest updates. Rockstar has neither confirmed nor denied these speculations but given the scale of the project, it wouldn’t be too surprising if this were the case.
While this remains unconfirmed information and should be taken with a grain of caution, it is supported by Rockstar’s previous decision to release just one new game—Red Dead Redemption 2—for the PS4 and Xbox One generation. This lends some credence to the idea that Rockstar might focus solely on GTA VI for the current generation of consoles.
Adding another layer of complexity, separate reports have indicated that Rockstar has suspended other projects in order to give full attention to the development of GTA VI. There’s also chatter about Rockstar potentially restarting development on another title, Bully 2, although this remains unconfirmed.
Rockstar Games has long-term plans that include the future release of Red Dead Redemption 3. However, industry speculation suggests this would likely be a project for next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 6, with a possible release around 2030 or later.
Given the history and current state of information, Rockstar focusing solely on GTA VI for the current console generation seems increasingly likely, but as always, only time will tell.
