When does GTA 6 appear? A question that rock star fans are currently experiencing sleepless nights. Thanks to the publisher Take-Two and a comparison with Red Dead Redemption 2, we may at least already know the release period – and that is probably still a few years away.
Accordingly, Rockstar Games Grand Theft Auto 6 between April 2023 and March 2024 send into the race. This goes from one Financial report from the publisher Take-Two while a financial analyst bases his estimate on Red Dead Redemption 2’s marketing budget.
Why should GTA 6 2023/2024 appear?
What exactly does this financial report reveal? Speculation that GTA may appear between April 2023 and March 2024 is based on the cost of the advertising efforts the publisher plans to spend behind Rockstar Games during that period.
Take-Two is currently counting on it in said months Marketing budget of $ 89 million to spend. When the publisher last invested such a large amount in advertising, it fueled the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 – the latest video game heavyweight from Rockstar Games.
After we last reported on Take-Two’s current plans for the coming years, this speculation would definitely make sense: 2021 should be “an easy year for releases” for the publisher, while, among other things, we are working on “continuations of the strongest brands” .

The fact that Take-Two would spend such a high marketing budget for a game other than GTA 6 can be doubted with a clear conscience: Few titles are of a comparable size in terms of development effort and costs and profit expectations.
No official confirmation of the release period
With the Take-Two report, it is natural that the release of GTA 6 actually takes place between April 2023 and March 2024 not officially confirmed. However, he dared Financial analyst Jeff Cohen of Stephens the same forecast and is very confident in his own statement:
“We’re not sure how much we’re shifting into this [des Marketingbudgets] should be interpreted, but we would like to note that this announcement correctly predicted the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 even before the game was announced. “
Incidentally, Jeff Cohen’s forecast and the indication of the marketing costs planned by Take-Two coincide with a Kotaku report by industry insider Jason Schreier: accordingly fans have to wait a few more years for GTA 6 – and there will definitely be a while until 2023/2024.
