Grand Theft Auto 6 Launching in Fall 2025

The long-awaited Grand Theft Auto 6 will launch in Fall 2025. Yep, you heard that right. Take-Two Interactive confirmed this during their Q4 and full fiscal year 2024 results announcement.

Now, let’s break this down. Strauss Zelnick, the big boss at Take-Two, mentioned that while Rockstar will announce the official release date, we can expect it next year. This aligns with the initial reveal trailer, which hinted at a 2025 release. So, mark your calendars, folks!

In his statement, Zelnick highlighted the company’s positive momentum as it steps into fiscal year 2025. They’re predicting Net Bookings of a whopping $5.55 to $5.65 billion. That’s a ton of cash, even for a giant like Take-Two. Zelnick also pointed out that Rockstar Games is narrowing their release window to Fall 2025. He’s confident that GTA 6 will deliver an entertainment experience like no other, which is what we all expect from Rockstar, right?

But let’s not ignore the elephant in the room. Despite this “positive momentum,” Take-Two reported a staggering $2.9 billion loss for the quarter ending March 31, 2024. Ouch. This includes a massive $2.18 billion goodwill charge, acquisition-related expenses, and restructuring costs. It’s a hefty loss, but Zelnick seems optimistic about the future.

Now, for the juicy details about GTA 6 itself. The game is set in modern-day Vice City and will feature two protagonists, Lucia and Jason. They’re on a wild crime spree, and we can’t wait to dive into their story. The game is confirmed for Xbox Series X/S and PS5, but no word yet on a PC version. Rockstar and Take-Two are tight-lipped about further details, so we must stay tuned for more updates.

Zelnick’s final word to Variety was pretty much a “no comment” on the specifics of the release date, which isn’t surprising. Rockstar loves to play things close to the chest. But rest assured, when more news drops, you’ll hear about it here first.

So, there you have it. GTA 6 is definitely coming next fall.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
