GTA 6 release date speculation

The GTA 6 release date window has been set for 2025, though PC players may be waiting a while longer for a GTA VI launch.

GTA 6 release date speculation

After years of GTA 6 leaks and unofficial teasers, Rockstar Games announced a 2025 GTA 6 release date window for the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. For PC fans, a GTA 6 PC launch might be much, much further away than they’d like, as Rockstar have not made any official announcement on when the game will make it to Windows OS systems.

Unfortunately, while the game is slated for a 2025 release, a bevy of rumors indicate that a GTA 6 delay could be on the horizon, meaning that the originally planned 2025 release could be pushed back as far as 2026.

GTA 6 release date window

GTA 6 is set to release in 2025, with best estimates placing it in January, February, or March of 2025.

On December 4, 2023, Rockstar Games released a GTA 6 trailer that gave us our first glimpse at the GTA 6 release date window. The trailer featured numerous callouts to real-life incidents in Florida. Whether the player can join in on any of these activities or encounter them in-game remains a matter of debate, but the trailer gave us one key insight: the Grand Theft Auto 6 release date.

We know that GTA 6 is coming to Xbox Series X|S and PS5 in 2025 thanks to a press release from Rockstar Games, which was published alongside the trailer.

Unfortunately for PC fans who were excited to see a 2025 launch window, that same press release made no mention as to when PC players might see a GTA 6 PC edition or Steam release.

Fans hoping for a GTA 6 PS4 and Xbox One release may have even longer to wait than PC players, as it seems very unlikely that the game will ever be ported to the previous generation consoles based on GTA 6 system requirement estimates alone.

What month will Grand Theft Auto VI release?

GTA 6 will likely launch in Q1 2025, as estimated by the community in response to Take Two Interactive earnings calls.

Lending credit to a February or March 2025 release window was an accidental leak by Rockstar Games themselves in a job listing for a Russian localization tester, which stated that the position was a fixed-term 12 month contract, and that the work produced would need to be suitable for the “final product”.

This discovery, in combination with all the other estimates, further points to the likelihood that GTA 6 will launch in the first quarter of 2025.

Previous Rockstar Games releases favored a launch window in fall, with GTA 5 releasing in September of 2013, and Red Dead Redemption 2 releasing in October 2018.

Combining the historical release of Rockstar titles with the news of a possible delay, Rockstar may very well launch GTA 6 in Q3 2025 if rumors of a Q1 2025 release prove inaccurate.

GTA 6 release date on PC

Assuming that the development of GTA 6 goes according to plan, we expect to see a GTA 6 PC release as soon as Q1 2026, a little over one year from the console’s anticipated release date.
