Grand Theft Auto 6 Set for Fall 2025 Launch


In a recent interview, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Rockstar Games’ parent company Take-Two Interactive, confirmed that the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI will be released in fall 2025. This announcement came during Take-Two Interactive’s latest earnings call.

“Our outlook reflects a narrowing of Rockstar Games’ previously established window of calendar 2025 to fall of calendar 2025 for Grand Theft Auto VI. We are highly confident that Rockstar Games will deliver an unparalleled entertainment experience, and our expectations for the commercial impact of the title continue to increase,” Zelnick stated in a press release discussing the fiscal year 2025 outlook.

In addition to the release window, it was revealed in an investor presentation that the Grand Theft Auto franchise has sold over 425 million units, with 200 million of those being from Grand Theft Auto V alone. Geoff Keighley also confirmed that 2K plans to reveal the next iteration of one of its major franchises at Summer Game Fest 2024, though this game is not GTA 6, which had a record-breaking trailer released last December.

Despite a report from Kotaku last month suggesting a potential delay for GTA 6, Zelnick reassured in an interview with IGN that Take-Two remains confident in the fall 2025 release. “We do feel highly confident that we’ll deliver [Grand Theft Auto VI] in fall of 2025,” he explained.

However, the road to this announcement has not been without its challenges. Some Rockstar Games employees are reportedly unhappy about returning to the office, and Take-Two has recently laid off a number of developers and closed game studios Intercept Games and Roll7, although Zelnick disputes the latter.

Grand Theft Auto VI is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated game releases in recent years, and fans are eagerly awaiting more details as the release date approaches.
