Leave it to Rockstar to confirm such a big announcement on a random blog post with no buildup. We all knew a new Grand Theft Auto game was coming inevitably, it was just a matter of when Rockstar was officially confirm it.
In a blog post on the Rockstar Games newswire, it was announced that the next-gen versions of GTA 5 will launch on March 15, 2022. In the same post, Rockstar confirmed they are “well underway” into development on the next Grand Theft Auto which will presumably be called Grand Theft Auto 6.
With the unprecedented longevity of GTAV, we know many of you have been asking us about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered — and we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway. We look forward to sharing more as soon as we are ready, so please stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official details.Rockstar Games
On behalf of our entire team, we thank you all for your support and cannot wait to step into the future with you!
When the game will release is a whole different story of its own, but if I had to guess, I’d say we’re at least 2 years out before its release.
