GTA 6 launch window confirmed by Take-Two Interactive

Despite rumors of a potential delay, GTA 6's launch window has been confirmed thanks to a financial report released earlier today.

GTA 6 release window confirmed by Take-Two Interactive: A character from GTA 6 gets ready for an exuberant handshake.

It can’t be over a decade since Grand Theft Auto V launched, it just can’t be. That’s a modern game, one that came out recently, not one that launched way back in 2013. So it’s always a slight surprise that we’re nudging at GTA 6 so soon. Today we received confirmation that we may be seeing the next title sooner than many expected, with Take-Two Interactive confirming the game’s release window.

Those rumors began in March this year, as reports emerged of worries that the GTA 6 release date could slip into the next year, not 2025 as had been originally announced. Given how heavily anticipated GTA 6 is, this could have been potentially crushing to its fanbase as it would mean a whopping wait of 13 years between games.

In a financial report giving results for the last quarter and the 2023/2024 fiscal year, Take-Two Interactive confirmed today that GTA 6 will be releasing in fall of 2025. While this does indicate a possible delay as an early 2025 release window was rumored at one point, it does mean that some fans at least can expect to get their hands on the next title sooner than 2026.

“Our outlook reflects a narrowing of Rockstar Games’ previously established window of Calendar 2025 to Fall of Calendar 2025 for Grand Theft Auto VI,”  Take-Two Interactive says in the financial statement. “We are highly confident that Rockstar Games will deliver an unparalleled entertainment experience, and our expectations for the commercial impact of the title continue to increase.”

Unfortunately for us PC gamers there is no mention of a planned release on our platform of choice. This release window only refers to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles, meaning there may be a wait for anyone strictly staying on PC for their gaming. Given that Grand Theft Auto V took an extra 18 months to arrive on PC, there is potential for a similar wait for GTA 6.
