The development of Gran Theft Auto 6, better known as GTA 6, is more than confirmed at this point. The simple fact of saying that a new installment of the Rockstar video game saga is on the way is something that in itself generates a lot of expectation, especially seeing that GTA V is still a very popular game, that it sells very well and that it has been recycled. until you get enough.
GTA 6 is still in a relatively early stage of its development, so the wait seems to be long for now, although possibly not much, since the latest rumors published by a leaker suggest that It would be launched on the market in Christmas 2024. This is more or less in line with what Microsoft said last November, although the data from the Redmond giant pointed to a slightly earlier date.
As we have already said, GTA 6 is in a relatively early stage of its development, so the leaker does not rule out that there are delays and that the launch of the game occurs in 2025. If this is confirmed, it would imply that development still has a long way to go, so users who are more enthusiastic will have to be patient.
In addition to the possible release date, the leaker has explained part of the alleged situation of the work environment within Rockstar. Apparently the company, following in the footsteps of others such as Activision-Blizzard, has applied a policy of forced return to the offices to recover the context prior to the pandemic crisis. The fact that most of the workforce is physically present in the offices would increase the company’s expectations of releasing GTA 6 in 2024.
On the other hand, Apparently Rockstar is suffering from a loss of talent that could lead to more delays in the development and future release of GTA 6, but the leaker does not believe that such delays will arrive until Christmas 2025 or early 2026, so it is assumed that the intention is, in the worst case, to release the game to the market during the course of 2024. On the other hand, the delays themselves could motivate the release of parts of the game through DLC in order to more or less meet the dates.
Taking into account that this information does not come from an official source, it seems that the situation around the development of GTA 6 could be chaotic, which obviously has a high chance of negatively impacting the final result of the product. To this is added the more than wild expectations before a title that belongs to a saga that has reached the rank of legendary in the video game industry.
