GTA VI could be delayed to 2026

Grand Theft Auto VI could be the biggest release of all time, especially if we consider the incredibly huge expectation raised by its official announcement. Rockstar Games revealed that the game is currently in development and showed its announcement trailer recently, and the Internet has been rive with speculation since then. From in-depth analysis of every image to recreations of the whole footage in GTA V, a single video has been the source of a ludicrous amount of content, but it's just the beginning. The community is avid for knowing more about GTA VI and every tiny bit of information is checked out with great interest. Of course, the most sought-after piece of information concerns the release date of the game which is yet to be officially confirmed by the developers, even though the game will be seemingly only available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series at launch.



Coming in 2025?

The general consensus about GTA VI is that it will be released next year. However, recent information points to a possible delay. According to Kotaku, some people working at Rockstar Games reportedly said that the plan is to release the game "in early 2025". However, the current state of the development process is not meeting the planned schedule and GTA VI may finally be ready to be released in late 2025 or even sometime in 2026. Of course, there is no official confirmation on this matter, and it's quite clear that the news will be quite disappointing for the fans of Grand Theft Auto if true.

However, it's crystal clear that Rockstar Games can't afford to release a game that does not meet the expectations of its fans at the risk of losing the prestige that it has accumulated over many years with GTA V. Therefore, hurrying the development could only lead to a potentially disastrous situation. We already saw it happening with Cyberpunk 2077, with a botched release whose repercussions forced CD Projekt Red to delay post-launch content to fix the game in a process that wasn't really complete until Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty was released three years later.

The fans will need to be patient and hope for the best with the launch of Grand Theft Auto VI. To be ready for it, the best option is to keep an eye on our comparator to take advantage of the best deals on GTA VI game codes ahead of release.
