GTA 6 rumors always grab attention, but these stand out
1) Official announcement by the end of 2022
Many of you have been asking about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series.
With every new project, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we’ve previously delivered. We’re pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the series is underway.

Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two’s Interactive CEO, Strauss Zelnick, has even been quoted speaking about the involvement of better development tools and bigger teams to help speed up the game’s development. Most sources have cited a late 2024 or a 2025 release date, with an announcement by 2023.
This has sparked many rumors of an early first look, leading to the first trailer being released as early as 2022. At the same time, the game is highly anticipated for an early 2025 release. An official announcement and trailer two years ahead align with Rockstar’s usual strategy.
4) Cryptocurrency in play
Rockstar is rumored to be releasing the game at the earliest as the last game in the GTA series came out close to 10 years back. The game might be released the same way as other co-op games, such as Fortnite, released as a short game with expandable maps and unlockable cities.
GTA Online has given fans a taste of the same when they get a completely new unlockable section for the Cayo Perico Heist that has players complete a heist and then unlock an entirely new island on the map.
Given the new rumors, this could be the way forward as Rockstar looks to release with a smaller map and expand with new DLCs.
