GTA 6 release date rumors were swirling around the internet a few days back when an alleged report from Take-Two Interactive was leaked online. Fans were expecting that the next Grand Theft Auto game will come out in 2023 or 2024 based on the details but the rumors were soon put to an end by the company.
Take-Two dismissed all the hope fans had and confirmed that GTA 6 is not ready yet and won’t arrive after three years. However, it could be possible that GTA 6 release date arrives sooner or even later as some of the gameplay rumors have also made their way to social media.
GTA 6 Release Date Rumors squashed by Take-Two
GTA 6 is one of the most anticipated games of all time and it would be seven years soon since the last entry GTA 5 in the series was released. It is why everyone was speculating that GTA 6 could release in 2023 or 2024 which was further confirmed by the paper release from Take-Two.

The document contained an SEC 10-K filing from Take-Two showing a large increase in the marketing budget for the fiscal year of 2023-24. The figures were recently planned and hence everyone assumed that it goes perfectly with GTA 6 and the game could be released in the next three to four years. Take-Two Interactive didn’t want fans to have any false hopes and made it clear that the marketing budget for the fiscal year 2024 was allotted to third-party games.
Since GTA 6 will be developed by Rockstar Games, which is a Take-Two subsidiary, there is no way such money will spend on ads for any of the upcoming Rockstar titles. It simply means Take-Two wants to clarify to everyone that GTA 6 is not coming out in 2023-24 as the game could come out sooner or even later. There was nothing mentioned on GTA 6 release date in the Take-Two statement and the game could come out anytime until there is an official announcement.
