We might not have heard anything concrete about GTA 6 from its developer, Rockstar Games, but according to evidence from some trusted game reporters and reliable leakers, the title is in the development pipeline. Since Rockstar Games has not yet verified any of this, no one is aware of when the game will be released. Yet, everyone wants an answer.
While every GTA 6 fan is hoping for a shred of news to support the statement that the game will be coming out soon, a journalist from Bloomberg, Jason Schreier came out with some bad news for the fans. According to his report, the title is still in the early development phases.
In addition, only hours after his report, two reliable leakers Yan2295 and Tezfun2 said in a reply to the report that GTA 6 is way ahead of its early development phases and the title is even 60 to 70 percent done. In response, Jason tweeted “Sorry dude, it is, Not what the fans want to hear but that game is years away”. Coming down to a conclusion, the earliest we can expect the game to come out is by the end of the year 2022.
Expected GTA 6Release Date
To make an accurate guess is probably impossible right now. We’ll try to make a near accurate guess of when we can expect the game to come out. Taking into account Schreier, GTA 6 has only started its development process and it could take six or perhaps even seven years to finish the production. Similarly, the primary and most taking part in the development phase is building the best map and filtering the physics and modeling the Non-Player Characters.
If we look back at how much time it took Rockstar to make Red Dead Redemption 2, almost 8 years, it is probably expected that GTA 6 will likely take the same amount of time or perhaps more.
GTA 6 Possible Location
Moving on, if we talk about the locations, it is rumored that the title will take place in classic cities like Liberty City and Vice City and South American cities like Rio de Janeiro. Another reason why it can take longer for Rockstar to create the game is that they need to optimize the title to make it compatible with next-gen consoles like PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Although Yan2295 and Tezfun2 believe that the game has been in development pipelines for some time now, GTA 6 would still take at least two to three years. We will wait for any further news regarding GTA 6 comes out from Rockstar.
