GTA VI Release Reportedly Slated For 2025
The latest entry in Rockstar Games’ hugely successful open world action adventure series, GTA VI, will reportedly release sometime in the year 2025.
According to a leaker, who has correctly revealed the postponement of Hogwarts Legacy and Forspoken prior to their official announcements, GTA VI will release sometime in the year 2025. According to him, this information is a “no-brainer”, and he is just putting it out there to confirm it.
Given that the game has been in development in some capacity since the year 2014, a release in the year 2025 doesn’t sound too far-fetched. Previously, it was revealed that industry analysts expect the game to ship sometime between April 2023 to March 2024. However, according to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, those within the development team are doubtful about an actual time frame.
Although there are tentative schedules in place, those contacted by Schreier stated that they were unaware of any specific release date and anticipated the game would not be available for at least another two years. A number of designers left Rockstar’s Edinburgh headquarters earlier this year, citing the lack of progress to coworkers as the reason behind their departure.
A recent leak had led to brand new screenshots and videos from GTA VI appearing on the internet. Based on the videos and screenshots, they appear to have been taken from an early developmental build. The tram seen in the footage has “Vice City” prominently mentioned on it, implying that the footage is indeed taken from a never before seen GTA game.
The videos show of several aspects of the game, including how dialogue and interaction with NPCs works. Visually speaking, there’s not much to say, as this is likely an early developmental build, and, therefore, not how the final game should look.
Based on the footage, the gameplay videos are captured from a variety of different hardware configurations, including different types of PCs using Nvidia GTX 1080 and RTX 2080 Super as well as an RTX 3080. Some of the footage has also been captured via consoles, including a PS4. It is, therefore, likely that GTA VI is being developed as a cross-gen title.
