Take-Two Interactive has reaffirmed that Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA 6) will be released in fall 2025, despite ongoing rumors suggesting a possible delay to 2026. This update was revealed in Take-Two's latest earnings report, where the company expressed confidence in the new release window.

"We do feel highly confident that we'll deliver [Grand Theft Auto VI] in fall of 2025," Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick told IGN, addressing concerns about potential delays.

Rockstar Games officially announced GTA 6 last December, with the game's first trailer quickly becoming the most-viewed video game reveal on YouTube within 24 hours. Set in modern-day Leonida, a fictional version of Florida, players will control characters named Lucia and an unnamed male, speculated by fans to be named Jason.

Since the reveal, the release date has been a hot topic among fans, with intense scrutiny over website updates and internal company policies. Questions about possible delays have also been fueled by internal conflicts regarding Rockstar's return-to-office policy. However, Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games remain committed to the fall 2025 launch.

GTA 6 is set to be released on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. While a PC version will not be available at launch, PC players are hopeful it will be released shortly afterward.
