Fans of Grand Theft Auto can wait even longer for the reveal of GTA 6
GTA 6 is arguably one of the most highly anticipated games on the horizon, despite little being known about it. Rockstar Games has yet to officially announce GTA 6, but considering GTA 5 is the most successful entertainment product of all time, GTA 6 seems anything but a certainty. GTA 6 looks set to be heading to PS5 and Xbox Series X, with the rumor mill claiming that the next Grand Theft Auto game will skip the PS4 and Xbox One generation.
And while fans await Rockstar Games’ official word on GTA 6, a reliable leaker has had his say.
Tom Henderson is known for his Call of Duty and Battlefield leaks, and the leaker recently spoke about GTA 6.
Henderson responded to a tweet who discussed when GTA 6 could be announced by Rockstar Games.
And adding to the discussion, Henderson wrote, “Yes, I agree. I think we’re 18 months away from a GTA 6 announcement tbh”.

If Henderson’s prediction is correct, it means we couldn’t get new to GTA 6 until the second half of 2022.
Since GTA 5 was first released in 2013, there’s a long gap between news about the follow-up.
But there’s reason to believe we haven’t been getting any news about GTA 6 for a while.
Rockstar Games has one Grand Theft Auto release planned – and that’s the release of the next-gen versions of GTA 5.
The enhanced editions of Grand Theft Auto 5 will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X in the second half of 2021.
We don’t have a confirmed release date for this new version of GTA 5 yet, but it seems unlikely that Rockstar will reveal anything about GTA 6 before this improved version of GTA 5 comes out.
While fans await concrete information on GTA 6, there are plenty of rumors about the next big Grand Theft Auto game.

The unveiling of the next GTA game could take place in 2022
GTA 6 is rumored to be set in Vice City, along with a new location in South America, that it will have a storyline influenced by Netflix hit Narcos and set in two time periods.
One of the most glaring alleged leaks was the claim that Sony paid massive amounts of money to secure the rights to make GTA 6 a timed PS5 exclusive.
What was interesting about this leak, which first surfaced in 2018, was that it correctly predicted other details about the PS5 that had yet to be revealed by Sony.
That could make the claims about GTA 6 and timed exclusivity for the PS5 more believable.
As with all rumors, it’s best to take this information with a big dollop of salt until official confirmation.
But one thing is for sure: given how consistently Rockstar has released bona fide instant classics that push the boundaries of what we expect from every generation and gaming, the wait for GTA 6 will be well worth it.
