We may get official details about Grand Theft Auto VI very, very soon, if Bloomberg’s report turns out to be true. Rockstar Games plans to announce the next entry in the GTA franchise as early as this week, according to the news organization. Plus, Rockstar is reportedly publishing a trailer for the game next month as part of its 25th anniversary celebration. It’s one of the most anticipated games for the current crop of consoles, especially since the fifth main installment in the series — the second-best selling video game of all time, as Bloomberg notes — came out way back in 2013.
While Rockstar has yet to launch the title, some fans may have already gotten a glimpse of early-days gameplay footage due to a leak that a hacker uploaded online in 2022. It contained 90 seconds of gameplay from a GTA VI test build, showing one of the two playable protagonists, a female character named Lucia, robbing a store. Another clip showed the other playable character riding the “Vice City Metro,” indicating that its story takes place in Rockstar’s fictionalized version of Miami. The developer later confirmed the contents of the leak and said that the game’s creation would continue “as planned.”
Rockstar will likely reveal GTA VI’s release period when it announces the game, but its parent company Take-Two previously hinted that it’s coming out sometime in 2024.
