The wait for Rockstar Games’ GTA 6 is endless. And a financial report from the publisher Take-Two indicates that the waiting time could be even longer.
How long do we have to wait for GTA 6?
What we know thanks to Take-Two: From a Financial report At an investor meeting, it emerges that Take-Two Interactive plans to publish 21 games by the end of the current fiscal year in March 2022. That sounds promising at first.
However, the company also explains that only four of the titles are so-called “Immersive Core” games, large and important titles. Two of them are said to belong to well-known brands.
No place for GTA 6: GTA 6 is one of the company’s important brands, but it is unlikely to be included in the games that will be released until March 2022. Because it is known that with WWE 2K22 and a new NBA 2K, two titles from large franchises are likely to come this year. So, at least during this period, there is no more room for a release of the new Grand Theft Auto.
When can we expect GTA 6 then? It means that 19 more of these “Immersive Core” games are planned for the 2023 and 2024 financial years. These should include seven sports games. A GTA 6 would be more suitable for this release period.

What else Rockstar is planning for 2021
But players will not go away empty-handed in 2021: For example, GTA Online is to receive more missions and cars this year, while the studio is planning a “surprise” for the anniversary of GTA 3. Rockstar Games is also working on an extensive summer update for Red Dead Online that may even include Heists.
Insiders predict longer waiting times
Well-known insiders are of the opinion that GTA 6 is not to be expected in 2022 either.
Industry journalist Jason Schreier spoke in April 2020 of a very early stage of development the game would be in (via Kotaku).
Insider Tez2 also thinks through his insights into the development of the game series that GTA 6 is not yet at an advanced stage (via Twitter).
ViewerAnon claims that Rockstar Games internally plans the release of GTA 6 in 2023 (via Twitter).
Well-known insider Okami, who was already correct with information about the Outbreak mode of Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, believes that we will have to wait much longer for GTA 6. He thinks that the release of the action game is still at least four to five years
Rock star expert Yan2295 said earlier this year that GTA 6 won’t be out anytime soon (via Twitter).
Gaming analyst Benji-Sales also doesn’t think we’ll be able to play a new Grand Theft Auto anytime soon. Rather, he thinks it is possible that it will be “a long time” in coming (via Twitter).
“I would be shocked if we got it in our hands before 2025.”

What does all this mean for the release?
So insiders agree that GTA 6 will be in development for quite a while. However, there are contradictions regarding an exact date. Official statements from Rockstar Games are also a long time coming. However, it is very likely that we will have to wait even longer before we can finally experience a new Grand Theft Auto.
The release date of GTA 5 for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S proves that there could be something to these opinions. Rockstar Games recently announced that GTA 5 on November 11, 2021 for the new consoles appears. It would be strange if the release were followed by a GTA 6 just a few months later.
What do you think? When do you think GTA 6 will appear?
