Grand Theft Auto 6 might not be releasing on PC on the same day as its console counterparts.
Despite not being officially unveiled, GTA 6 has already claimed a spot as one of the most anticipated games of all time. The fervor surrounding this unrevealed title has been fueled by leaked files that surfaced online last year, offering a sneak peek into Rockstar’s ongoing development efforts. As fans remain on the edge of their seats, hoping for a full reveal, the rumor mill continues to churn.
Five years have elapsed since Rockstar’s last release, “Red Dead Redemption 2”, and expectations are high for a GTA 6 announcement this year. While whispers about a teaser trailer float around, there’s no concrete information on whether Rockstar is planning such a release in the near future.
A significant revelation has come from a recognized insider, Tez2, who voiced his insights on the GTA Forums. Tez2 highlighted concerns regarding the stability of the PC version, stating it is currently more bug-prone compared to its console versions. Drawing parallels to problematic releases like “The Last of Us Part 1” and “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor”, he indicated that Rockstar might be taking precautionary measures to ensure a smooth launch.
Elaborating on the matter, Tez2 explained, “Internally, the PC version is more buggy than the console versions. Rockstar wouldn’t want to end up with a Star Wars Jedi Survivor or The Last of Us Part I PC situation for the most anticipated game.” He further added, “I’ve heard from various sources that the devs expect VI PC release to happen after citing more time needed. Hopefully, it’s a delay of a few months.”
For those well-versed with Rockstar’s release history, this potential delay might not come as a shock. The PC release of “Grand Theft Auto V” saw a gap of about a year and a half from its initial debut and was launched five months after its introduction on the PS4 and Xbox One. Similarly, “Red Dead Redemption 2” made its PC appearance a year post its console release.
It’s imperative to note that these details remain speculative until confirmed by Rockstar. Fans across the globe are eagerly awaiting an official statement regarding the GTA 6 PC launch. With hopes high, the gaming community looks forward to the much-anticipated GTA 6 reveal.
