GTA 6 Release Date: Is the Trailer Arriving in December 2023?
The multigenerational open-world crime spree Grand Theft Auto 5, which has sold more than 190 million copies, will finally get a sequel from Rockstar Games after more than ten years. Rockstar has stated that Grand Theft Auto fans will receive their first official glimpse at the upcoming game in the form of a trailer in December.
Grand Theft Auto 6 is almost certainly going to be the name of Rockstar’s upcoming GTA game, even if it doesn’t currently have a formal name. And because of a historic 2022 game leak, we are aware of certain elements regarding Grand Theft Auto 6.
However, a lot of GTA 6 is still unknown due to Rockstar’s secrecy and the monumental burden of following up one of the greatest video games ever.
Here is all we currently know about Grand Theft Auto 6.

When Does GTA 6 Come Out?
Although parent company Take-Two Interactive may have disclosed a release window for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto game, Rockstar has not yet provided an official release date for GTA 6.
Analysts have deduced that Take-Two’s August announcement to investors that the business expects to witness a “major inflection point” during its fiscal year 2025 indicates that Grand Theft Auto 6 will launch sometime between April 1, 2024, and March 31, 2025.
Although it’s evident there’s a significant gap, it might indicate that Grand Theft Auto 6 will launch in 2024. Despite the fact that GTA 6 might not be released until 2024, Rockstar is known for putting off the release of its largest titles in order to improve them.
Red Dead Redemption 2, its most recent significant release, saw three public delays. Moreover, Grand Theft Auto 5 experienced a major postponement in 2013, delaying its initial spring release date to its eventual September 2013 release.
Stated differently, history indicates that nothing is certain, even if Rockstar provides us with a delivery window or date by the end of 2023.

What Are the GTA 6 Settings?
Grand Theft Auto 6 will take place in Vice City, which is the GTA universe’s version of Miami, according to a big leak of early gameplay footage and early reports on the game. The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City game from 2002 was the first to explore that area, but it took place in the 1980s.
According to early gameplay videos, GTA 6 will depict a story reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde set in present times, with two main characters named Jason and Lucia. Lucia would be the first female main character to be playable in a mainline Grand Theft Auto game.
Wait, What GTA 6 Leak?
In 2022, the message board GTAForums posted more than ninety videos of Grand Theft Auto 6, which was still under production. The offending hacker stated that they obtained the videos—which spanned over 50 minutes—directly from Rockstar Games’ internal Slack channel.
The videos feature cop pursuits, robbery, gunplay, open-world driving, packed nightclub scenes, and voice-acted dialogue. The game footage included bits of debug programming displayed on the screen at the time, indicating that it was obviously not meant for public viewing.
One of the longer films saw the female player character frightening patrons and employees, making them cower in fear as she pulled a revolver on them. After engaging in a gunfight with the cops, she gets into the police patrol car with her male partner and drives off. The graphical style of the game is faithful to the GTA game series, but it is quite realistic. See the Tweet for more details:

What Will Happen to Grand Theft Auto Online When GTA 6 Comes Out?
Rockstar has not commented, but it’s likely to go on considering how well-liked GTA Online is, despite being a stand-alone game as well. It’s possible that Rockstar has higher standards for the online feature in Grand Theft Auto 6, and that each game will have two separate online experiences.
When it comes to GTA 6, the future of GTA Online is one of the most unanswered issues, not to mention the hardest needle for Rockstar to thread. It’s possible that Rockstar will keep those plans a secret for the time being.
Although Rockstar did not formally recognize the game’s existence until February 2022, it has reportedly been around since 2014.
What Platforms Will GTA 6 Be Available on?
Unknown, although the Xbox Series X, Windows PC, and PlayStation 5 are good choices. It appears more likely than ever that Rockstar would release all versions of Grand Theft Auto on the same day, in contrast to previous Grand Theft Auto games that had sequential releases on consoles versus PC.
The PC version might, however, come out later than the PlayStation and Xbox versions given Rockstar’s past performance. Another platform is in the works that might house Grand Theft Auto 6: Nintendo’s Switch console.
Don’t count out an eventual release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition on Switch 2, as Rockstar has embraced the platform with titles like L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption, and GTA 6 on Switch 2.
