GTA 6 Release Date: Bad News for PS4 and Xbox One Players

It seems almost impossible to surpass a fabulous game like GTA 5. It’s the third best selling game of all time after Minecraft and Tetris, and that speaks for itself. In 2019, GTA 5 had reached its pinnacle in terms of the number of copies sold. You can do pretty much anything you want in a game like this: killing, stealing, robbing banks, destroying cars, destroying choppers, flying jets, harassing people, hunting animals and much more.

But there’s always room for more in gaming, especially considering the fact that developers are constantly finding new ways to make the games more realistic. Grand Theft Auto fans are hoping that the sequel for GTA 5 will be even better. Maybe that’s why the launching of GTA 6 is taking so long: the creators are working hard to make it surpass GTA 5.

Release date not being announced in early 2020

According to the latest indicators, Rockstar Games will not announce the release date of GTA 6 during early 2020, and this is bad news for the PS4 and Xbox One gamers. The next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft are just around the corner, arriving to the markets during Holidays 2020. If GTA 6 will be released after this period of time, it’s most likely that it will be compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and NOT also with the previous PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

Many specialists believe that the release of the next GTA game will occur during 2021, and that shouldn’t surprise anyone. Rockstar Games is still very committed to GTA Online, the online version of GTA 5, and it doesn’t show any signs that it wants to stop.

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick was asked if we can expect a new AAA game in 2020, and here’s some important passages of what he answered:

 “So as we always do, you’re going to hear our initial outlook for fiscal ’21 in May, and our labels, of course, always make our product releases.

“We have set our strategy, as you correctly pointed out, is to have a strong frontline release schedule, both iterations from beloved franchises.

“So right now, we have titles like Grand Theft Online, Red Dead Online, all the Social Point titles, and there are 5 that are successfully in market, NBA 2K Online in China, WWE Supercard, which has been downloaded more than 20 million times, and the list goes on.

For those who don’t already know, Take-Two Interactive is Rockstar’s parent company. As a final conclusion, the best bet for when GTA 6 will be released is the year 2021.
