'GTA VI' release date rumors, news: Next game in franchise to be released in 2021?


Now that “Red Dead Redemption 2” is set to be released this winter, Rockstar Games may soon be working on “Grand Theft Auto VI” (GTA VI), based on some reports.

Reports have said that three years after the release of “Grand Theft Online,” the American game developer unveiled “Red Dead Redemption 2.” Following the timeline of the development of the two games, it’s possible that GTA VI will be unveiled three years from now as well, which would be in 2020.

The release date could also be in the year 2021. According to a YouTube user named Itz Frolickz, one of the airports in “Grand Theft Auto V” in-game has a suspicious door numbering pattern. It’s said that if the player goes to this airport and check on the doors’ numbering, there’s one that says 2013, and the door right next to it has 2021.

It should be noted that “Grand Theft Auto V” was released in 2013. Thus, it’s most likely that “GTA VI” is scheduled to be out in the market in 2021.

To add to the speculations, tipster Yan2295 stated that Rockstar will refrain from issuing “GTA Online” updates this year, and they will stop all updates after the launch of “Red Dead Redemption 2.” The tipster added that Rockstar North, the lead developer of “GTA,” is working on the next GTA. When he said “next,” did he mean “GTA VI?”

But, nothing is set in stone yet. Rockstar Games has not confirmed the reports.

Meanwhile, the New York City-based videogame company has just released its “2017 GTA Online Stunt Race Event.” The new update brings in 15 new stunt races, and the players can double up their GTA$ and RP in all Rockstar-created and Rockstar-verified stunt races.

“All the hair-raising thrills and stomach-churning twists from Stunt Races are back and bigger than ever with 15 brand new Rockstar Created tracks,” according to Rockstar’s announcement. “You’ll race up glass towers, plummet through clouds, dodge turbines and clatter though bowling pins on your way to the finish line,” the statement continued.
