It means that GTA 6 won’t come out anytime soon as the game studio is still working on improving the already released GTA game. GTA 6 launch won’t happen in 2021 for sure as Rockstar is still improving GTA V for the PS5 console.
GTA 6 Release Date won’t Happen in 2021 for Sure
GTA 6 fans were left heartbroken when Rockstar announced that they are still focusing on GTA V as their main title at the moment. Rockstar revealed that they are not just bringing GTA 5 to the PS5 console, but have an expanded and enhanced version for the game. Grand Theft Auto 5 for PlayStation 5 will have several technical upgrades, graphics improvements and will fully utilize the computing power of PS5 console.
Rockstar has promised that GTA V will look and feel amazing on the next-gen console and gamers will experience like a playing a totally new game. But the sad part is that the new version of GTA V for PlayStation 5 will come out in the second half of 2021, which means there is no way GTA 6 comes out next year. The maximum fans can hope is that GTA 6 trailer is released when GTA V enhanced version is actually launched.
Why is Rockstar not working on GTA 6?
GTA 6 launch should have happened by now as it has been around seven years since the last game in the series was released. However, GTA 5 has been one of the best-selling games with more than 130 million copies sold out. It is the main reason why Rockstar is still milking the success of GTA V and not working on GTA 6 at the moment. Fans are hoping it is the last upgrade on GTA V and the next announcement from Rockstar is regarding GTA 6 release date, gameplay, and features.
