This GTA 6 guide is designed to document everything we know so far about the game, revealing important details about its release and contents. We will continue to update this guide as Rockstar Games shares more details as we near its launch. Here's everything we know so far about GTA 6.
GTA 6: Everything We Know So Far
Below you'll find everything we know so far about GTA 6 in the form of questions and responses. As further details are revealed, we'll update the guide with new information.
What's the GTA 6 Release Date?
Grand Theft Auto 6 will release in 2025. Beyond the year, Rockstar Games hasn't shared any other official details related to the GTA 6 release date. In the past, the developer released Red Dead Redemption 2 in October while GTA 5 came out in September. History would suggest Rockstar Games prefers to release its games towards the end of the year, but this may not apply to GTA 6. We'll have to wait until Rockstar Games shares more.
Why Is GTA 6 Taking So Long?
Unfortunately, video game development isn't like it was in the PS2 generation anymore, where games could be made and released inside two to three years. Rising asset size along with the meticulous detail featured in titles made by Rockstar Games means Grand Theft Auto 6 is taking longer than ever.
What Consoles Will GTA 6 Be Available On?
GTA 6 will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. The game won't be available on PS4, but a PC launch further down the line seems likely.
How Much Will GTA 6 Cost?
Rockstar Games hasn't announced a price for Grand Theft Auto 6 yet, and since the developer hasn't released a new game this generation yet, there's no track record to fall back on. However, the game will almost certainly be priced at £70 / $70 for the base version, with special editions costing more.
What City Is GTA 6 Set In?
GTA 6 is set in Vice City, in the state of Leonida. This is a returning setting from GTA: Vice City on PS2, but the map will be completely different.
How Big Is the GTA 6 Map?
Rockstar Games has not shared an official look at the Grand Theft Auto 6 Map yet. The Map from GTA 5 is currently the series' biggest at more than 80 square kilometres, but GTA 6 is expected to beat it. When revealed, expect this to be the biggest Map the franchise has ever had.
Who Are the Main Characters in GTA 6?
While they have not been outright confirmed by Rockstar Games, it seems very safe to say Lucia and Jason are the two main characters in Grand Theft Auto 6. Lucia is the focus for much of the game's first trailer, and Jason is her boyfriend, who we see her in bed with towards the end. Right now, it's not known whether there'll be more playable characters.
Will There Be a Single Player Campaign in GTA 6?
Yes, Rockstar Games has confirmed GTA 6 will have a single player campaign. Founder Sam Houser said the game will "push the limits of what’s possible in highly immersive, story-driven open-world experiences".
Will There Be GTA Online in GTA 6?
Rockstar Games hasn't commented on the existence of a GTA Online mode in Grand Theft Auto 6 yet, but the chances of there not being one are pretty much second to none. Grand Theft Auto Online is what's kept GTA 5 going for so long and has generated a lot of money for the developer, so it'll surely bring the multiplayer mode back with new features and a better look. It may not be available at launch, but it'll arrive eventually.
When Will We Get More GTA 6 News?
Since GTA 6 is still at least a year away, it's difficult to say when Rockstar Games will share another update. More news should arrive at some point this year, but since the developer doesn't turn up to the typical gaming events like Summer Game Fest or The Game Awards, anything could theoretically happen on any day. Your best bet is to follow a website like Push Square for all the latest news.
