'GTA VI' release date news: Rockstar Games will likely work on 'GTA VI' after 'Red Dead Redemption 2' launches


For years now, fans have been clamoring for “Grand Theft Auto VI” (GTA VI). However, it should be noted that Rockstar Games is still churning out downloadable content (DLCs) for “Grand Theft Auto V’s” (GTA V) multiplayer mode, “Grand Theft Auto Online” (GTA Online). Will the studio ever find the time to work on “GTA VI?”

Reports are saying that Rockstar Games may be ready to move on from their present cash cow after the release of “Red Dead Redemption 2.” Noted tipster Yan2295 has also revealed that updates for “GTA Online” would slow down this year, and the studio would eventually stop releasing updates around the time “Red Dead Redemption 2” launches.

Yan2295 also pointed out that Rockstar North, the primary developer of the “GTA” series, is currently divided into four parts to help on the studio’s other projects.

“Some people are helping San Diego with RDR2, some people started working on the next GTA, and some people are working on another game. So you’re left with only a few people to work on GTA Online. You can’t have updates as big as we had in the past when you have 4x less devs working on GTA Online, that’s just impossible,” the source said.

Of course, Yan2295 did not say outright that “GTA VI” is the next project on Rockstar North’s plate once they get their personnel back together, but sources believe that this is how it will most likely play out.

Reports say the game is already in the pre-production stage, but fans of the series still have a long wait ahead of them before they can get their hands on the finished product.

As of this moment, Rockstar Games has yet to announce that “GTA VI” is under development. Until they make a confirmation, all reports concerning the upcoming game are rumors at best, so readers are advised to take everything with a grain of salt.
