Autumn Heist: GTA VI’s Launch Window Confirmed

Hey gamers, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Take-Two Interactive just dropped the big news about Grand Theft Auto VI, and it’s going to be epic. Here’s everything you need to know.

Release Date and Platforms

So, mark your calendars for autumn 2025! That’s when GTA VI will hit the shelves for PlayStation 5, the rumored PS5 Pro, and Xbox Series X and Series S. Yep, we’ll finally be back in the GTA world after a whopping 12-year wait.


The Big Reveal

The official announcement came straight from Take-Two Interactive’s latest financial report. They’ve narrowed down the release window to fall 2025, so we have a more specific timeframe to look forward to. Even though it’s still a bit vague, at least we know it’s coming.

Financial Highlights

Here’s a juicy tidbit from their earnings report: “As we enter Fiscal 2025 with positive momentum, we expect to deliver Net Bookings of $5.55 to $5.65 billion.” They’re banking big on GTA VI, and we can’t blame them. They believe Rockstar Games will deliver an unmatched entertainment experience, and their confidence is sky-high.

GTA V’s Legacy

In other news, GTA V has smashed records with over 200 million units sold! That’s almost half of all GTA franchise sales since the series started in 1997. GTA V has spanned three console generations, debuting on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in 2013, and more recently on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 with stunning 4K visuals, ray-tracing, and more. No wonder it’s still a hit, especially with the thriving GTA Online community.

What’s Next?

Keep an eye out for the next big GTA VI trailer, rumored to drop this summer. While E3 is no longer the go-to for major gaming announcements, we still have PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, EA, and Bethesda hosting their own events between May and June. Plus, Summer Games Fest could bring us more juicy GTA VI news.

Breaking Records

Experts are buzzing that GTA VI could shatter sales records set by its predecessor. GTA V still holds the record for the best opening week of sales in video game history, raking in a cool $1.15 billion in just five days. With the gaming industry bigger than ever, the next GTA could hit even higher numbers.

Industry Insights

Dmitri Williams, a video game business expert and professor at USC, thinks GTA VI will perform even better than GTA V. He says, “The brand is as strong or stronger than it was before, but additionally, the game industry is larger. If it maintains the same slice of the pie, it’s going to be big because it will come from a bigger pie.” The gaming industry is now worth around $250 billion globally, making it a massive market.

Sony’s Next Move

Rumor has it, Sony might launch an upgraded PS5 console to coincide with GTA VI’s release, featuring better graphics and a sleek new design.

Back to Vice City

GTA VI will take us back to the nostalgic Vice City, last seen in 2006’s Vice City Stories. And here’s a groundbreaking update: for the first time since 2000, the game will feature a female protagonist, Lucia. The plot is still under wraps, but it’s expected to follow a Bonnie and Clyde-esque adventure across a fictional Florida-like state called Leonida.

So, get ready for an incredible return to the world of Grand Theft Auto. The countdown to autumn 2025 starts now!

  1. I am so excited for GTA VI’s launch window to be confirmed! Autumn is such a perfect time for a game like this to come out. Can’t wait to see what new features and updates they have in store for us. Thanks for sharing this news!

  2. There have been considerable success in the GTA series and to have the date for the GTA VI launch is something that has made a lot of players excited. I am looking forward to playing it as soon as it is released as well.

  3. It’s been a long time coming but having a launch window for GTA VI is great and means people have a rough date to look forward to!

    I played GTA V and enjoyed it so very excited to see more about GTA VI over the next year or so before the release.

  4. Despite being a popular game franchise, I have never played any GTA games. Well, it was not because I particularly disliked the game, it is just that I am too busy with other games. Maybe I will start playing GTA some day.

  5. This has been on for a while, and it’s great news for long term fans of the franchise. I just feel that the development cycle for GTA VI has been unusually long. At the same time it could be that Rockstar is taking their time to ensure the game meets high standard, as the previous versions did.

  6. about fucking time. I’ll need a few days off and a bunch of energy supplies.
