GTA 6 release date may have been leaked after Rockstar’s latest report

Now they finally have the GTA 6 trailer, which proffered a wealth of new information, gaming fans are champing at the bit for the GTA 6 release date.

And Redditors – who else – have come up with a theory about when the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto game will be released.

While gamers have the year – 2025 – that’s not enough for excited GTA 6 fans who already have a heap of theories as to the exact GTA 6 release date.

Eagle-eyed gaming sleuths combed through a new Take-Two financial report – the parent company of Rockstar – to try and determine a more exact release date.

In the since-deleted subreddit, they noticed dates for the company’s next quarterly review meetings.

“PSA: The next quarterly TakeTwo meeting is Feb. 4th ’24 and could confirm early next year release,” Reddit user LynchMaleIdeal said in the post.

Fans are guessing the company will confirm an early 2025 release date during the February meeting.

And some think we can be even more specific than that.

“It’s coming out on Valentine’s Day 2025,” guessed one Redditor.

They thought the trailer’s soundtrack – Love is a Long Road by Tom Petty – is an Easter egg for fans.

You can watch the record breaking trailer below:

Many theorists agree that the release date is being kept vague deliberately.

That’s so that Rockstar have room to push if back if they need more time for development.

However, not everyone was convinced.

“They’re not going to step on Rockstar’s toes by announcing a release date in an investor call. They’ll keep being vague, like usual,” one Redditor said.

Another had an even more pessimistic viewpoint: “Us real G’s know it ain’t coming till 2026.”

That looks set to ring true if you’re planning to play on PC or an older console.

The game’s initial released will only be for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
