'GTA 6' release date: Game rumored to be launched for next generation consoles Xbox Two, PlayStation 5


Rumors have it that the highly anticipated follow up to the heist-full world “Grand Theft Auto VI” may become available for the touted next generation consoles from both Sony and Microsoft, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two, respectively.

According to Game N Guide, what may have added to the assumption is that both companies are reportedly working on their aforementioned platforms. Sony apparently shared a job post for game developers who want to become part of their team. They were said to be specifically looking for a senior game programmer for R&D purposes.

The report added that former chief officer of Xbox Robbie Bach also hinted that the successor to the latest available console Xbox One may already be under development, and it may become different than its predecessors in a lot of ways with the possibility of having a support for virtual reality, equipped with AMD processors, and may become disc-less.

One member of the team behind the Xbox project, Phil Spencer, was said to have agreed with Bach stating, “Expect that you’ll see another console from us. Our best customers are Xbox console customers, and I want to keep those people engaged both on the Xbox One and anything we might do in the future.”

Moreover, some fans speculate that Rockstar Games may have been keeping quiet about “GTA VI” as it seems to be avoiding what happened before – when they were not able to meet their scheduled release date.

If the next installment of the game actually becomes available for expected new consoles, it seems like the players have to wait a little bit longer as there may be another cause of delay.

Neurogadget shared that Leslie Benzies, one of the most influential people who work on “GTA” series has left Rockstar after working with the studio for about two decades. He initially went on a leave, but it seemed like he would be not returning. His place was reportedly taken over by art director Aaron Garbut and animation director Rob Nelson.
