Rockstar has finally provided a concrete update on GTA 6, and players can’t wait to find out more about the year’s most anticipated event: GTA 6’s official reveal in December.

Since its humble beginnings in 1997 as a 2D game centered around car looting, Grand Theft Auto has evolved into a cultural juggernaut. Fast forward to 2023, and the excitement surrounding the mere release of its trailer is enough to dub it the year’s grandest event, proving the popularity of GTA 6.

After years of waiting, the developer has finally provided a solid update on GTA 6 status, sending shockwaves throughout the community. As of writing, the announcement has become the most-liked gaming post on X of all time.

Here’s all we know about Rockstar’s next installment in its hit franchise, GTA. 

When is GTA 6 release date

GTA 6 is expected to release in the first half of 2025. 

Recently, Rockstar Games confirmed that the first trailer for the game will be shared at the beginning of December. Next month marks the 25th anniversary of Rockstar Games, so it’s the perfect time to reveal the next installment in their most popular franchise to date.

“We are very excited to let you know that in early December, we will release the first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto. We look forward to many more years of sharing these experiences with all of you,” Rockstar Games stated.

However, the developer is still tight-lipped about the official release date, but we have a guess. There have been signs that Rockstar is preparing to release GTA 6 sometime at the end of 2024 or beginning of 2025. 

In a Take-Two Interactive investor call, chief finance officer Lainie Goldstein said that the company is gearing to be in a position to make a significant profit in 2024-2025. According to her, this would translate into new record levels of cash boost.

“We are positioning our business for a significant inflection point in fiscal 2025 that will culminate in us delivering new record levels of operating performance next year and beyond,” she said. 

It’s highly likely that GTA 6 would be the source behind the record cash boost, since its Rockstar’s most lucrative title so far. So, that’s what we have gleaned from the GTA 6 leaks and hints so far.
