Now the questions and expectations are towards the next installment in the series, the GTA 6. Grand Theft Auto fans are eagerly waiting for the next release in the lineup and searching all over internet for the release date of GTA 6.
Before you continue reading this article, we should warn you that there are no official confirmations regarding the release date of the GTA 6 yet. We are just going to talk about the rumors and expectations regarding the GTA 6 release date. As soon as we have some words from Rockstar or any trusted resources that confirm the official release date of the game, we will keep you updated.
There have been several claims and rumors predicting the release date on social media platforms such as Twitter. Just like this one.
The tweet says that the game is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2021 and won’t be released until then. As the release of the PS5 is also near and the Rockstar already announced a PS5 version of the GTA V, it is almost certain that the GTA 6 won’t be released for the PS5 at the time of the launch.
According to Gfinity, a popular gaming platform, a job advert was posted on a recruitment website, Monster (which seems to be deleted now) from Rockstar Leeds looking for an environment artist. The job opening description says that they are looking for someone to create “next-generation worlds” which is probably implying the new consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X. The job opening description also contained a line,
creating and texturing environment assets for the biggest and best open-world environment in the industry.
Rockstar Leeds, the said job poster, is well-known for their contributions to various worlds and designs in the Rockstar games. So this means that GTA 6 is probably in development. So we can assume that the game is going to be released in 2021.
