GTA 6 release date news – Update coming on this date?
GTA 6 release date news has been coming thick and fast recently, with plenty of rumours emerging. The latest flurry of GTA 6 updates were sparked by a report from former Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier in one of his final articles for the site. In a report about how Rockstar’s culture has changed following the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, Schreier said a new Grand Theft Auto game is the next project for the studio.
But in a blow to those looking forward to GTA 6 Schreier said the next entry in the hugely popular Grand Theft Auto series is in “early development”.
Schreier has an enviable track record of reliability, breaking plenty of big name gaming stories before they were officially announced.
Just recently the journalist reported on the first release date delay to Last of Us 2 as well as the Horizon Zero Dawn PC port before the news was officially announced.
Given his track record Grand Theft Auto fans were taking it as all but confirmation that GTA 6 was awhile away.
However, since then there have been contradictory reports with notable Rockstar Games leakers TezFunz2 and Yan2295 saying otherwise.
In a conversation on Twitter @Yan2295 said GTA 6 was more likely to be in the “early stages of testing” as opposed to the early stages of development.
While @TezFunz2 said they had heard GTA 6 was “halfway done” or “even beyond that”.
Since then there have also been reports that the story for the next Grand Theft Auto game has already been completed and that the map will be “huge”.
With all of these opposing claims fans will be hoping Rockstar Games puts them out of their misery soon and makes an official announcement.
We are currently in the midst of the longest wait ever for a new Grand Theft Auto game and it’s unclear when this duck is going to be broken.
However, fans have been given renewed hope that an update on the next GTA game could be coming shortly.
There has been a number of false dawns this year with claims a GTA 6 reveal would happen in March, with that month coming and going without a peep about the next GTA.
GTA Casino update could have a GTA 6 reveal hint hidden away in it
But fans are keeping their fingers crossed that we could be getting some news in May.
Back when the Casino update was launched at the end of last year fans spotted something very curious in the glamorous Los Santos location.
There was one corridor in the Diamond Casino which had some very curious signage.
On one side was ‘DIAMOND’ with ‘510’ underneath it, and on the other side of the corridor was ‘SER’ with ‘VICE’ below it.
This was eye-catching as Vice City is heavily rumoured to be the location of the next GTA game.
Fans wondered if this was a clue from Rockstar Games that GTA 6 will be set in Vice City, and that news could be coming on May 10 (i.e 510).
And now fans have been left wondering if this theory has been given more weight.
It has been announced that Rockstar Games’ parent company Take Two will be holding their next earnings call on May 11 – the day after this rumoured reveal.
Going into that earnings call off the back of a GTA 6 announcement would give investors plenty to get excited about.
And Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick did previously say they would be delving into their outlook for their next fiscal year in the May earnings call.
Previously Zelnick said: “As we always do, you’re going to hear our initial outlook for fiscal ’21 in May, and our labels, of course, always make our product releases.
“We have set our strategy, as you correctly pointed out, is to have a strong frontline release schedule, both iterations from beloved franchises.”
These comments could be a sign we will hear more about Rockstar Games’ big, upcoming releases by the time this earnings call has come around.
Which could lend credence to the theory that we will get GTA 6 news on May 10.
Or, alternatively, we could just see April and May – like other months – roll by without any official GTA 6 news.
