When is the GTA 6 release date?

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

When is the GTA 6 release date?

After years of GTA 6 leaks and unofficial teasers, we finally have a confirmed GTA 6 release date window. It’s a while away yet, but even just knowing when to expect the sixth installment in Rockstar’s iconic series has us pretty excited.

For PC fans, a GTA 6 PC launch might be much, much further away than they’d like, as Rockstar has not made any official announcement on when the game will make it to Windows OS systems.

When is the GTA 6 release date window?

The GTA 6 release date window is set for the fall of 2025.

On May 16, 2024, the Take-Two Interactive Earnings call confirmed that GTA 6 would launch in the “fall of calendar 2025.” A specific month was not cited.

Given that previous Rockstar Games releases favored a launch window in the fall, with GTA 5 releasing in September of 2013, and Red Dead Redemption 2 releasing in October 2018, a fall 2024 GTA 6 release date window doesn’t come as a shock.

On December 4, 2023, Rockstar Games released a GTA 6 trailer that gave us our first idea of when to expect the game’s launch. 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 year.

We previously knew that GTA 6 was 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 is set to launch in Q3 2025, with best estimates placing it in October of 2025.

With a fall 2025 GTA 6 release date now confirmed, it is quite likely that GTA 6 will arrive in September or October of 2025. This gives Rockstar a little leeway to still deliver before the holidays in the off-chance there are any small delays, so it makes a lot of sense commercially.

Previously, it was believed that GTA 6 would arrive in Q1 of 2025. 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 pointed to the likelihood that GTA 6 would launch in the first quarter of 2025. However, this theory was debunked by the Take-Two Interactive earnings call on May 16, 2024. So, while it’s disappointing we’re not getting a GTA 6 release date sooner, at least we know when we can anticipate picking up a copy.

What is the GTA 6 release date price estimate?

Given that we’re not expecting GTA 6 to release exclusively on the current generation of consoles in late 2025, we think it’s also fair to assume it’ll arrive for a similar price to other new games on both Xbox and PlayStation platforms.

With that in mind, we’re anticipating the game to cost around $69.99, or £69.99 in the UK, for a standard edition when the GTA 6 release date rolls around. If there are special editions available on launch, they could be anything from $90-$200, depending on what’s on offer as part of the special edition offering.

When is the GTA 6 release date for PC?

Assuming that the development of GTA 6 goes according to plan, we expect to see a GTA 6 PC release as soon as Q3 2026, a little over one year from the console’s anticipated release date.

Should Rockstar Games provide a more accurate release schedule for both console and PC versions of GTA 6, you’ll be able to find all the latest GTA 6 release date updates here.
