GTA 6 may not have a solid release date just yet, but we do know a little bit about when the game should be dropping!

Right now, Grand Theft Auto 6 is, without a doubt, the most anticipated game in recent history.

It’s been over a decade since GTA 5’s launch in 2013, and with GTA Online still going strong to this day, many fans are excited to see what Rockstar Games has in store for us with the next entry in the groundbreaking franchise.

But when will we be able to play GTA 6 for ourselves?

Everything We Know About the GTA 6 Release Date

GTA 6 has a confirmed release date of Fall 2025, but an exact date has not been officially revealed at this point in time.

It appears that the next Grand Theft Auto was internally planned to release in early 2025, but Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick now confirms that Rockstar is targeting a Fall release.

This means that we can expect GTA 6 to drop between September – November 2025!

GTA 6 2025 Release Date

Initially Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive initially predicted profits of over $8 billion by the end of the 2025 Fiscal Year (FY:25).

However, the publisher’s most recent earnings call suggests that estimations for FY:25 have since been lowered to between $5.55 and $5.65 billion, a significant drop for Take-Two.

With that in mind, it’s relatively clear that GTA 6 was pushed from its expected release window and delayed into Fiscal Year 2026.

This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Rockstar Game get the delay treatment. After all, GTA 5 was famously delayed from its Spring release date to September 2013.

The good news is that Rockstar Games is still confirming a 2025 release date for GTA 6.

And although Rockstar Games has been branching out with its release dates in recent history, over half of all GTA games were released in October.

As such, we’d guess that September-October 2025 is set to be the new GTA 6 release date.

But we’ll have to wait for official confirmation to find out if that’s true!

When Will Rockstar Reveal the Release Date?

It’s likely that Rockstar Games will reveal GTA 6’s release date during Trailer 2 or 3.

In the case of both GTA 5 and the more recent Red Dead Redemption 2, the game’s official release date didn’t feature in a trailer until the third release.

However, both titles did narrow down the launch window considerably with their second trailers.

Unfortunately, going by previous release schedules, we don’t expect Trailer 2 to appear until the end of 2024, meaning there could be quite a wait until we finally learn GTA 6’s release date.

As soon as we get more information, we’ll update this article with all the official details, so check back soon!
