Rockstar has officially dated GTA 6 for release in 2025, but there was some optimism evidenced by parent company Take-Two’s financials which suggested the title may arrive early next year. However, updated guidance from the organisation suggests that’s no longer the case, as discussed by Wedbush Securities analysts Nick McCay and Michael Pachter.
Late last weekthe firm revised its outlook for the coming fiscal year, which runs from 1st April, 2024 through 31st March, 2025. This downturn of estimated income – from an originally expected $8 billion to $7 billion – suggests Rockstar’s highly anticipated sequel won’t launch early next year. “The drop makes us almost certain that GTA 6 will not be releasing next fiscal year,” the aforementioned analysts said.
However, they added that there’s “no reason to believe the game has slipped out of calendar 2025, but it is reasonable to assume that it will launch later in the year”. GTA games don’t tend to have defined launch windows, as GTA 4 deployed in April while GTA 5 was September. We suspect it’ll drop once the developer’s done, but hopefully we get more insight into exactly when that’ll be later this year.
