There is currently no official word on the development of Grand Theft Auto VI, in spite of significant rumours to the contrary. But, one insider believes that some content may be saved for DLC instead of the game’s much-expected release. It is no surprise that fans are eagerly awaiting the next version of what is widely regarded as one of the biggest franchises in all of the gaming given that Grand Theft Auto 5 will turn 10 years old this year.
The game was not actually released until someone leaked early GTA VI gameplay footage in the latter half of 2022. The extremely divisive releases were an accurate reflection of the situation at the time the tapes were taken. Several in the community felt the game did not look in a nearly finished state, which led the fans of the game to believe that it was still a long way from a potential release date. This in addition caused quite the response from both Rockstar and parent company Take-two interactive.
Even so, it appears as though Grand Theft Auto 6 may soon get involved in some controversy of its own. According to a recent Dexerto claim from insider Tez2, Rockstar could not be prepared to release the next version until as late as 2024 or 2025. The post’s conclusion states that the developer may even exclude certain gameplay elements to “bundle into DLCs to release later on.” The leaker claims that is being done in an effort to stop further launch delays for the game. If that is the case, it will probably not go over well with fans who will not like Grand Theft Auto VI delaying the release of content. However, it should be emphasised that neither Rockstar nor any other official entity has acknowledged nor refuted this, making it impossible to verify the information at this time.
For their Grand Theft Auto leaks, Tez2 is well-known. They were recently mentioned in rumours that GTA 6 work was almost finished and at the polishing stage. It needs repeating that these were only rumours. As a result, until official word is released, any information of this sort should be treated with caution.
