Another month has slipped by without the much-anticipated trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6. Despite rumours and high hopes, the curtain has yet to be lifted on the next chapter of Rockstar Games’ storied franchise.
Initially, expectations peaked for an October 26 reveal. This date, circled by insiders and fans alike, was bolstered by a series of leaks and even an accidental hint by Rockstar involving a mysteriously uploaded private video. However, the day came and went without a peep from Rockstar, leaving a trail of disappointment and unfulfilled anticipation.
In a turn of events, a notable industry insider, recognized for accurately leaking the GTA Trilogy remake, has stirred the pot with new information. According to this source, Rockstar Games is not projecting the release of GTA VI until the spring of 2025. This timeline, although more concrete than previous speculations, comes with its caveats. The insider, known as Tez2 in the gaming circles and revered for their connections with Rockstar, elaborated on GTAForums that this expected spring launch could face a delay, pushing it to fall 2025. Tez2 reminded enthusiasts of similar postponements with past titles like GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2.
Adding to the mix, Tez2 predicts that an official announcement for GTA VI could still be on the horizon for this year, likely aligning with Rockstar’s 25th anniversary celebrations, speculated to occur between late November and early December. However, given the rollercoaster of expectations thus far, this prediction is advised to be taken with a grain of salt.
As it stands, the gaming community is leaning towards a mid to late 2025 release for GTA VI. This prolonged wait has only amplified the excitement and speculation surrounding the title. Gamers around the world are hopeful that when Rockstar finally lifts the veil on GTA VI, it will include a set release date, allowing fans to mark their calendars and begin a definitive countdown.
In the meantime, the world of gaming remains abuzz with anticipation, eagerly awaiting any crumb of information about what could be the next big leap in the Grand Theft Auto saga. As always, stay tuned for more updates on GTA VI as we continue to follow this developing story.
