GTA 6 – release, price, news. If these rumors turn out to be true, gamers will be furious

GTA 6 - Everything we know


The release of GTA 6 is a highly anticipated event for gamers around the world. The title is increasingly exciting online communities and stirring up numerous discussions. New rumors and leaks regularly appear, suggesting what Rockstar Games’ latest baby might look like. At this point we have only received official information that the game is being developed. However, we still haven’t learned the release date of GTA 6, but the words of Take-Two representatives indicate that it is not particularly far off. Now rumors have surfaced about the price of Grand Theft Auto 6, which is knocking the price off its feet.

When will GTA 6 be released?

Let’s start with the official information that Rockstar Games has confirmed that it is working on the latest installment of GTA. It also announced that its goal is to prepare a production that offers even more than its predecessors. New rumors are constantly appearing, which suggest that the release of GTA 6 is not as far away as it may seem.

According to first suspicions GTA 6 will be released between April 1, 2024 and March 31, 2025. This information comes from financial report published by Take-Two. It mentions forecasts for the next fiscal year. The company expects revenues of $8 billion, helped by a number of planned titles. In addition, it talks about “groundbreaking games, expected to set a new standard in the industry.” The name of GTA 6 admittedly does not fall, but it is not difficult to associate this information with that very title. There are no other titles in the company’s portfolio with such high potential.

The report goes on to say that the planned projects are expected to contribute to even greater successes for the corporation over the next few years as well. It can be expected that GTA 6 will be developed in a similar way to its predecessor, although it remains unknown whether the online mode will be available immediately – GTA 5 got it two weeks after its release. That GTA 6 will be developed over the years seems downright obvious, and perhaps we’ll also see paid story additions.

If the above information turns out to be true, we can expect the release of GTA 6 even in September or October 2024.

This could also mean that the announcement of the game itself is not particularly far off. Yet Rockstar’s and Take-Two’s previous actions clearly show that they wait until the last minute to announce their games, and only do so when they are sure that everything seen in the promotional materials will also be in the game.

The above reports largely coincide with what insiders have been saying so far. So we can expect an official announcement later this year. Tom Henderson, a well-known industry journalist, believes that such a long wait for GTA 6 is largely due to the fact that the game will be released only on current-generation consoles. The publisher wants to make sure that the title debuts on a market full of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. And as we know, there was a problem with the availability of those for quite some time. It is also worth mentioning that it is suspected that Rockstar Games may “cut” some planned content in order to be able to release the game faster, and then make the mentioned parts available as DLC.

The above information is, of course, in no way confirmed, so it is worth treating with a big pinch of salt. It will be no surprise if we have to wait even longer for its debut.

GTA 6 hardware requirements (predicted)

GTA 5 still looks great, and Rockstar has to make a real effort to impress us. Therefore, for GTA 6, PS4 and Xbox One will simply prove insufficient. Rather, expect it to be a title that exploits the potential of consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, as well as in PCs equipped with the latest processors and graphics cards.

If there’s anything we can be sure of with GTA 6, it’s probably only that we’ll need new hardware to play it.

What will we need to get GTA 6 up and running in our country? Well, just what kind of gaming computer will allow us to play the latest gangster simulator? No official information on this, of course, but you’d better set your mind to the fact that in the case of GTA 6 the requirements will be among the really high ones.

It probably won’t do without RTX, a Core i5 or Ryzen 7 processor or 16GB of RAM. Experts at Game-Debate expect the recommended configuration to look like this:

  • Processor: 6-core Intel Core i5-10500 or AMD Ryzen 7 1700
  • Graphics card: GeForce RTX 2060 (6 GB) or Radeon RX 5700 (8 GB).
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM and no less than 65 GB on disk (preferably SSD)

The price of GTA 6 can knock you off your feet

On the NicheGamer an article has appeared discussing the potential price of Grand Theft Auto 6. The cited leak is said to be from a conversation between the developers, who stated that the game has been in development since 2014, with a budget of $2 billion. According to the callers GTA 6’s launch price will be $150 (about $600), so that the insanely high production costs can be recouped.

This is unconfirmed information, but there is already talk that GTA 6 is the most expensive game ever. Still, gamers will be furious if they actually come to pay that much for the game at launch. Some of them are already saying that they will seriously rethink buying Rockstar’s new game. However, it is worth waiting at least until the announcement. Then we’ll be able to see what the studio has to offer, and soon after that we’ll probably know the price as well.

New GTA 6 trailer coming soon?

Unofficial information has emerged saying that we will soon see a trailer for the hotly anticipated GTA 6. According to a source the first trailer for the production is expected to be released this fall – November 17 to be exact. He adds, however, that its release may well happen in December.

It’s better to restrain potential enthusiasm, because the author of the rumor is a whistleblower who has no track record of verified leaks. It also doesn’t help that he’s convinced that Rockstar Games will announce its game at some industry gala – the past shows that the said studio tends to prefer sudden surprises. Regardless of the circumstances, the news has caused quite a stir, which can be seen primarily on the Reddit.

The informant also commented on earlier leaks. According to him, the unofficial footage dated back to 2020 and is supposed to be an action by Rockstar, which thus wanted to stop potentially more problematic leaks.

What will GTA 6 be about? Plot and setting

Version 1 – in the climate of Pablo Escobar

According to the aforementioned rumor, the action of the GTA 6 game will take place on the territory of two continents – the Americas. It is reported that we will be relocated to the 1970s and 1980s, and the plot will revolve (closer or further) around the characters of the Pablo Escobar. This would fit in as well as possible with the gangster vibe of the Grand Theft Auto series.

From the same potential leak, we learn that in GTA 6 (codenamed Project Americas) the protagonist is to be one. He is to be a man known as Ricardo, who wants to become a drug boss. And it is this mission that the plot will focus on.

Version 2 – the life of a gangster in the present day

At the same time lives another rumor. According to it, the GTA 6 game will be set in the modern world and will show what gangster life currently looks like. In this case, we would get four protagonists: two law enforcers and two who do not particularly respect the latter. There are also reports online that we will take control of a woman for the first time.

Version 3 – a story surrounded by drug trafficking

According to the version of the plot provided by Matheusvictorbra, the title is supposed to tell the story the story of two protagonists – twins (a sister and a brother). They were separated after A drug cartel killed their parents. Many years later (in the 1920s) they meet again, although they operate on two different sides of the barricade. The brother is a DOA agent (the equivalent of the Drug Enforcement Agency in the GTA world). The sister, on the other hand, has stepped into the role of an assassin in the cartel responsible for the death of their parents, in order to work it out from the inside and exact revenge. The entire game is expected to focus on the topic of drugs and drug trafficking to a degree never before seen in the series. The production will also try to give a good representation of the modern level of technology and weaponry.

Version 4 – smuggler, boxer and policewoman

According to what we can read in a purported marketing document, the plot of GTA VI will have a three main characters – Ricardo, a Colombian special agent who becomes a smuggler in Vice City (the first act of the story will focus on him), Casey, a former boxer unafraid to use violence (the second act of the story will focus on him), and Rose, a policewoman in despair after the death of her husband, Arthur McClane, who falls in love with Ricardo (the third act of the story will focus on her). A number of familiar faces from GTA IV are expected to appear in the production, such as Little Jacob, Niko Bellic and Gay Tony. It is expected to take about 80 hours to complete the whole thing.

Version 5 – the new Bonnie and Clyde

A leak from Jason Schreier says about the two characters whose fates would be inspired by the story of the criminals known as Bonnie and Clyde. One of the protagonists is to be a woman of Hispanic descent and the other a man. The plot of Grand Theft Auto 6 is also to be devoid of the series’ characteristic satire ridiculing minorities, among others. The decision is said to stem from studio representatives’ concerns about how a similar direction might be received today. And as some of the employees admit: “Today’s America cannot be described satirically, because it is itself already a satire“.

GTA 5 or GTA 6

GTA 6 – the map and everything related to it

Last year, Grand Theft Auto VI became famous for a map published by a certain Reddit user. It suggested that we would return to the vicinity of Vice City, which longtime fans of the series would certainly take positively. Unfortunately, it is not known how true this information is, after all, we are only talking about rumors. What adds credibility to the matter, however, is the fact that the author of the leak has already revealed news that turned out to be authentic. It’s also worth bearing in mind that this coincides with previous reports about GTA 6. Several visions emerge from them, and according to the most likely one… Rockstar will invite us to the a huge open world, which in the north will start right from Vice City, while in the south it will go all the way to Brazil (via Mexico, Cuba and Colombia).

Another leak has been forwarded to by a Twitter user nicknamed Matheusvictorbr, who is interested in Rockstar productions and is occasionally quoted by industry media. According to his information, in GTA VI players will be able to visit as many as five locationsCarcer City (known from the Manhunt series), Vice City, Cuba, Colombia, and Brazil (in the prologue).

Another of the leaks, a more than 100-page document purporting to be an instruction manual intended for the marketing department, said. the game will offer travel to the state of Liberty and the cities of Vice City, Carcer City and Cottonmouth. The prologue, in turn, is to be set in a fictional country in South America. At this point, it’s hard to judge how true this information might be, but given that much of it contradicts each other, it must be approached with great caution.

GTA 6 rumors and leaks

News in Grand Theft Auto 6

Based on circulating rumors, we can expect the following. weather will play an important role and there will even be phenomena such as hurricanes and floods. The landscape will also change over the years – we will notice it in buildings or cars.

The next elements most likely to make their way into GTA 6 are.

  • an expanded economic system (e.g., with evolving commodity prices),
  • multi-layered mechanics of building a drug empire,
  • realistic equipment (i.e., you carry only as much as a person would actually be able to carry, and you can possibly keep the rest in the trunk of your personal car),
  • introduction of truly erpy character development systems,
  • Destruction system, allowing buildings to be demolished featured in the game. This is the most controversial part of the leak published by Matheusvictorbra, and this may indicate its low credibility. After all, it’s hard to imagine that there would be an option to raze the entire city to the ground. However, it is possible that it is only about individual buildings, the devastation of which, for example, will be part of any of the tasks.

On the other hand, according to what we can find in a supposedly marketing document, GTA VI is expected to feature such attractions as:

  • improved exploration system (police officers are to be at least much more inquisitive to get to the perpetrator of a crime, even if the player has managed to escape from them),
  • body hiding mechanics,
  • the mechanics of managing your own organization,
  • ability to arrest criminals and conduct investigations (as Rose),
  • more interactive NPCs,
  • The need to take care of basic physiological needs, such as sleep;
  • mechanics of stress,
  • the mechanics of taking drugs, which will affect gameplay;
  • Mechanics for building sympathy and antipathy toward other gangs (those that don’t like the heroes, for example, can try to hunt them down),
  • ability to listen to the radio via headphonesi, while outside the vehicle,
  • climbing mechanics,
  • business negotiation system,
  • various types of ammunition,
  • air travel.

Yet another leak comes from Jason Schreier, who on the Bloomberg website published another handful of details. He drew his knowledge from interviews he conducted with 20 anonymous Rockstar Games studio employees. Among the information about the setting of the action scrolls a city inspired by Miami. This would mean that we will end up in Vice City, a metropolis known from the older installment with such a subtitle. According to the latest reports, at first we would have access only to this city and its surroundings. As the storyline developed, we would also go to other places.

A chainsaw may appear in GTA 6

Those who played GTA Vice City, San Andreas or Chinatown Wars will surely remember the chainsaw available in those games as part of the arsenal. LinkedIn profile of one of Rockstar’s former employees the fact that this equipment may return in GTA 6. The man in question, while at work, was involved in creating, among other things, labels for items to appear in the game – among them was reportedly a chainsaw.

The employee’s profile has already been edited, so the description of his experience no longer mentions a chainsaw in GTA 6. However, nothing is lost on the Internet – the entry can be found at Reddit. Thus, we believe that this weapon will indeed return in the latest installment of the series. However, it is important to note that it may appear in a different form, not necessarily as a tool designed for combat.

GTA 6 the most expensive game ever?

A Youtuber known for his videos on the Grand Theft Auto series has prepared material on the budget of the highly anticipated GTA 6. According to him, the latest production of Rockstar Games studio will be the most expensive game ever. The cost of its production is expected to be $1-2 billion. So far, the most expensive games were Destiny 2 ($500 million), Star Citizen ($500 million), Cyberpunk 2077 ($330 million) or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare ($330 million).

In addition, at Insider-Gaming a summary appeared showing the production costs of each installment of the series. In the case of the first three installments, the data is less certain – it was determined on the basis of “investigation” by the editors. In other cases (excluding the latest installment), the data is taken from official sources. The list is as follows:

  • Grand Theft Auto (1997) – $1-2 million.
  • Grand Theft Auto 2 (1999) – 3-4 million
  • Grand Theft Auto 3 (2001) – 5 million
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002) – 5 million.
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (2004) – 10 million
  • Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) – 100 million
  • Grand Theft Auto V (2013) – 250 million
  • Grand Theft Auto 6 (2024?) – 1-2 billion

We can also expect a huge marketing campaign, which will further increase the cost of the game’s release. Grant Taylor-Hill of Insider-Gaming suspects that the total will be $3 billion. Of course, this is not certain information. So it’s best to wait with judgments until the marketing machine officially gets going.

American journalist saw GTA 6 in action

Well-known American youtuber and journalist HipHopGamer uploaded a photo to Twitter in which he stands next to Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Interactive – the publisher of Grand Theft Auto 6. According to the information he provided, GTA 6 will be unforgettable.

Unfortunately, that’s all HipHopGamer could say – unless he’s already in trouble from the title of the above throw-in. There is speculation that he has been hired to work on the upcoming game as the host of one of the game’s radio stations.

Besides, if you take his word for it that he was actually able to play GTA 6 or at least see it in action, the game’s announcement may not be that far off after all.

His positive attitude suggests that He has seen something much better than what we had the opportunity to see via a leak from last year. This would be a kind of confirmation of recent reports that GTA 6 is in the final stages of production. His enthusiasm is also unlikely to be exaggerated – Rockstar Games has long delivered productions of enormous scale, with many innovations relative to the rest of the industry and in unmatched quality. It remains to be hoped that we won’t have to wait long for an official announcement with a stunning trailer.

GTA 5 phenomenon delayed the release of “six”

Although nine years have passed since its release, Grand Theft Auto 5 is still selling brilliantly. New games are constantly appearing on the market, and GTA 5 is able to distribute 5 million units in a quarter – more than many new releases. Ba, The overall result of 165 million copies makes GTA 5 the second best-selling game in history (it loses in this ranking only to the Minecraft game).

GTA 5 is an excellent game that has not actually aged – neither graphically nor technically.

In addition, on March 15, 2022, a streamlined version of GTA 5 appeared on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S consoles, which is the third generation that the production has hit. Initially, the title debuted exclusively on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and over time it also powered the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC catalogs.

It’s also worth adding that there is no shortage of ways to make gameplay more interesting. For this purpose, the best are codes for GTA 5 Free Download, which make use of, for example, additional weapons, get a new vehicle, or gain immortality. In addition, mods for GTA 5 also contribute to the success of the game. The best modifications make the game draw you back in.

The biggest influence on the popularity of GTA, however, is the following. GTA Online – which is part of its online mode with a huge and lively community. Rockstar makes sure that players do not get bored and constantly serves them new events and other attractions. For nearly a decade of presence on the market GTA Online has lived to see a whole host of additions, introducing all sorts of weaponry, vehicles, clothing or capabilities, including:

  • Running your own nightclub,
  • Establishing a motorcycle club,
  • carrying out assaults
  • or building stunt routes.

In other words: the developers are doing a lot to keep the game alive. And they’re doing it effectively, because it doesn’t think about dying. And since it’s doing great, for the Rockstar Games team GTA 6 released at this point would be, most simply, a shot in the knee. And this is where we come to this very topic….

GTA 6 release date

How about GTA 6 will be a “live” game?

The success of GTA Online has shown that keeping a game alive with add-ons makes a lot of sense. It’s not out of the question that Rockstar will try the same thing in GTA 6 for the story campaign as well. There was a rumor the other day that Grand Theft Auto 6 would be released as a (relatively) an undersized production, in order to grow over time, reaching more locations and offering more and more. Just like it is the case with GTA Online. You have to admit that this is quite an interesting concept.

According to a leaked supposed to be a document for marketers GTA VI will receive two feature expansions. The first will focus on a drug-addicted protagonist named Tony Prince. Its plot is to take place in parallel with the events known from GTA IV. In the second add-on, players will take on the role of Ramon, a member of the Vice City Vagos gang, who is trying to find his way in a new reality after a long stint. Both DLCs are expected to offer about 15-20 hours of fun and introduce new mechanics compared to the base game.

GTA 6 with the biggest leak ever

The leak, which took place last year and concerns Rockstar’s production, is the biggest ever. Responsible for it is a hacker who materials published under the nickname teapotuberhacker. He maintained that he managed to steal them from Rockstar Games. Thus 90 videos showing GTA 6 in the early stages of development have appeared online. The video collecting them all was below, but has been removed.

Adding credibility to the leak was the fact that the aforementioned user bragged about his hack of Uber’s servers. The materials themselves were allegedly downloaded from Slack (the company’s messenger) used by Rockstar employees. Its authenticity, moreover, was confirmed by Jason Schreier himself, which is a well-known industry journalist. He described the cited situation as a nightmare for Rockstar, but also one of the biggest leaks in the history of the industry.

The materials showed a very early version of the game. Internet users noticed on them that the developers used elements from their previous games – such as the car sounds from GTA 5 or parts of the interface from RDR 2.

Thanks to them managed to confirm some of the earlier guesses. It appears that we will indeed have the following at our disposal two playable characters: a woman named Lucia and a man named Jason. We can also note that they move around the Vice City – This is indicated by some buildings or public transportation signs.
