Looking for more information on the upcoming Grand Theft Auto title? Look no further, thanks to our list of GTA 6 FAQs!

Grand Theft Auto 6 is easily one of the most highly anticipated games of all time. The latest in Rockstar Games’ long history of open-world titles, GTA 6 is set to be a ground-breaking new addition to the franchise.

Here’s everything you need to know about the future of Grand Theft Auto:

Is GTA 6 Confirmed?

Yes, after years of leaks, rumors, and speculation, GTA 6 was finally confirmed to be in development in February 2022.

The game’s first trailer was released by Rockstar Games on December 3, 2025. GTA 6 Trailer 1 was pushed live a few hours ahead of its intended debut in order to combat a leak that was beginning to do the rounds online.

When Is GTA 6’s Release Date?

GTA 6 currently has a confirmed Fall 2025 release date, but Rockstar Games hasn’t narrowed down the game’s release window any more than that.

Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick has confirmed a Fall release date for the game, which means we’ll get our hands on GTA 6 sometime between September and November 2025.

The Take-Two boss also claims to be ‘very happy’ with the confirmed release window, indicating that no further delays should impact GTA 6.

When Will the Next Trailer Release?

There is currently no confirmed release date for GTA 6 Trailer 2.

However, both GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 dropped their second trailers almost exactly a full year after the first one released.

Considering these were Rockstar Games’ most recent projects, we expect GTA 6 to follow a similar pattern, which suggests that Trailer 2 could release at the end of 2024.

Who Are the Main Characters?

The protagonists of GTA 6 are Lucia and a male protagonist whose name is currently unknown (though leaks indicate that his name is Jason).

Lucia makes history by being the first-ever voiced female protagonist in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. She lives in Vice-Dale County in Leonida, and was serving time in prison during the mid-2020s.

It is implied that Lucia and Jason are in a relationship, with some describing the duo as being inspired by real-world criminals Bonnie and Clyde.

We don’t currently know who is portraying either protagonist, though Lucia’s voice actor may have already been discovered.

Can You Pre-Order GTA 6?

No, GTA 6 is not currently available for pre-order. The game will likely get a confirmed release date alongside a future trailer’s release, and only then will it be available to purchase.

Neither PlayStation nor Xbox allow gamers to pre-order a game without a release date.

A couple of websites do have GTA 6 available for pre-order already (with enormous price tags attached), but we wouldn’t suggest opening your wallets until a release date is confirmed.

What Platforms Will It Launch On?

GTA 6 is set to launch exclusively on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles.

The game will not be available on PS4 or Xbox One, nor will it be coming to PC on day one.

Will GTA 6 Come to PC?

GTA 6 will almost certainly come to PC, but a port has not been announced yet.

Considering that Red Dead Redemption 2 dropped on PC one year after its console debut, we expect that GTA 6 will come to PC in 2026.

However, this is currently unconfirmed.

Will GTA 6 Be Cross-Platform and Crossplay?

No, as of right now, GTA 6 does not have confirmed cross-platform or crossplay online, which would allow users on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S to play together.

Rockstar Games is yet to comment on whether or not GTA 6 will be crossplay, which means we could potentially be able to play with friends on other consoles at launch.

However, considering that GTA 5 still doesn’t have crossplay a full decade on from its initial 2013 release, the feature doesn’t appear to be a priority for the developer.

How Much Will It Cost?

There has been no confirmed price revealed for GTA 6 at this time, however it will likely retail for the standard $70 price tag that we see with most modern games.

It’s also likely that Rockstar Games will offer fans a way of paying more, such as by purchasing a Collector’s Edition, or Deluxe Edition with early access.

And while there are rumors that suggest GTA 6 could cost $100 outright, they aren’t currently substantiated.

Where Is GTA 6 Set?

GTA 6 is set in Vice City and the surrounding state of Leonida. Long-term fans of the series will recognize this as being the setting of the original GTA: Vice City (2002) and Vice City Stories (2006).

This is the first time we’ve seen the iconic Vice City in the modern day, given that the original games took place in the 80s.

What’s more, it’s also the first time we’ve seen the Miami-inspired city in Rockstar Games’ HD Universe.

From what trailers have revealed, we can see that the game’s open world has been greatly expanded, with areas such as the Florida Keys and Everglades already showcased.

How Big Is the New Vice City Map?

Early estimations by Grand Theft Auto’s mapping community suggest that the GTA 6 map is set to be twice as large as GTA 5’s San Andreas.

The state of Leonida, where Vice City resides, looks to be around 160 square kilometers of explorable open world, making it the largest GTA map to date.

What’s more, Vice City itself has been greatly expanded upon, with far more depth added to it compared to its appearance in the original GTA: Vice City and Vice City Stories.

If leaks are to be believed, the game will also contain a lot more building interiors, which should make the open world feel more dense and populated than ever.

Has GTA 6 Been Delayed?

No, so far, GTA 6 has not been delayed from its officially stated Fall 2025 release date.

It does appear that the game has seen an internal delay at Rockstar, but as of right now it is still on track for a late 2025 launch.

It’s worth pointing out, however, that Rockstar Games has a long history of delays. And if GTA 6 does somehow manage to avoid being delayed for real, it’ll be the first major Rockstar game to do so in around 20 years.

Will GTA 6 Have Online?

So far, Rockstar Games has not commented on GTA 6’s online multiplayer component, nor has the company revealed what will happen to the ongoing GTA Online when the new game launches.

However, we are certain that GTA 6 will have an online mode, due to just how profitable GTA Online has been for the company in the last decade.

It is not likely that progress will carry over from GTA 5 to GTA 6 Online, and both games will most likely exist simultaneously, at least until Rockstar sees fit to shut down the older game’s servers.
