What do we know about GTA I.V. so far?
In our article, we will include carefully selected claims on many issues such as the price of GTA 6, release date, and system requirements. Although some of the claims we mentioned are at the level of speculation, for now, some of the claims are based on very serious reasons. Let’s take a look at the details of GTA 6 that we will review.
Before going on to our article, we make an important reminder. We have no official explanation, as Rockstar Games acts like a complete black box about GTA 6. However, there is information coming from news close to official sources. For this reason, in our content, instead of official statements, we mostly include claims based on realistic findings and completely representative images. Although it is not very soon, we may get official information about GTA 6 in the next 1-2 years.
Where will GTA 6 be set, how will the map be?
With GTA 6, it seems that we will return to the most popular cities of the GTA series, Los Santos, Vice City, and Liberty City. Behind this claim is a very solid leak. The leak we are talking about comes from a platform called Glassdoor, where employees write reviews about their companies. Glassdoor is a reliable platform because every review on the site is first approved by the site administration.
The owner of the leak is someone who has worked as a ‘tester’ for Rockstar. This review, which seems quite normal at first glance, has items that almost reveal an acrostic under the “recommendations to management” section. When the first letters of the items are combined, the phrase “GTA6LSVCLC” appears. So Los Santos, Vice City and Liberty City are the initials. The map you see above was created by a graphic artist combining these three cities.

What will GTA 6 be about, what is its story?
The most intense area of the theories about GTA 6 is of course the story of the game. All theories are just speculation. There hasn’t been a story leak yet, backed by reliable sources. All the claims made are based on fan theories. These fan theories are at a level that goes as far as the new story will be in the science fiction genre, and make people say “well, I’ll be hanged!”. We will update this section whenever a theory emerges that can be supported by realistic findings.
Will we see a female character in the leading role of GTA 6?
One of the most voiced requests about GTA 6 is that there is a female character among the playable characters this time. We do not know whether GTA 6 will be played with more than one character like GTA V, and we do not yet know whether one of these characters will be a woman. An interview with GTA V in 2013 by Dan Houser, who left Rockstar of which he was one of the founders in 2020, may shed light on the subject.
Dan Houser says they expect to make a play where they can tell the story they want to tell with a female character, rather than seeing adding a female lead to their play as a must-have item on their to-do list. “Could such a thing happen in the future?” It should be added that he answered yes to the question. He even says it would be great to make a play with the right conditions and a female lead.
Although Dan Houser left the company, his brother with whom he founded the company still continues to work in the company. We also think that Dan Houser spoke not only about his opinion but also from the general point of view of the company in his 2013 interview. That’s why the ideas he stated are valid even if he leaves the company.
How will GTA 6 gameplay be?
Gameplay dynamics do not yet have satisfying leaks either. However, one of the best things to say about the GTA series is of course that each new game, it offers innovations that will teach the game community on the gameplay side. Therefore, although there is not much to say about the gameplay dynamics of GTA 6 at this point, it is likely that it will offer very innovative gameplay.
When is GTA 6 coming out? What is its release date?
GTA V was announced for PlayStation 5 and became a game that found its place in three different generations. Since the game will debut on PlayStation 5 in 2021, it would not be realistic to expect GTA 6 to be released in 2021. If we make a forecast based on the data we have, GTA 6 is expected to be released between April 2023 and March 2024. Accordingly, we set an estimated time for the countdown as January 2024.
Let us explain the basis of this prediction. Rockstar Games is part of the distribution company called Take-Two Interactive. In other words, the budget allocated for the marketing of the games developed by Rockstar is determined by Take-Two Interactive. This situation will be valid for GTA 6 as long as there is no sensational separation. In fact, the 2023-2024 forecast for GTA 6 emerges from the statement he made about the budget of Take-Two.
According to the statement made by Take-Two Interactive, the company’s marketing budget for the fiscal year that covers the range of April 2023 to March 2024 is $ 89 million. Again, according to the data shared by the company, this amount is much higher than in all other years. When viewed in this way, it seems almost certain that GTA 6 will be released in the 2023-2024 fiscal year. However, there is another issue that needs to be addressed.
A total of 93 different games will be released from Take-Two between 2020-2025. Many different games developed outside of GTA 6 may also have an effect on the fact that the budget allocated to the fiscal year 2023-2024 is so high compared to other years. Finally, let’s give some information that will keep the hopes fresh: Red Dead Redemption 2’s predicted release was made according to the budget information shared by Take-Two at that time and turned out to be correct.
All of Rockstar Games’ recent games were first released for consoles and then computers. PC gamers have waited two more years for console players to get GTA V. Red Dead Redemption 2 was brought to computers a year after its release on consoles. A similar strategy is likely to be followed in GTA 6.
When will we see a GTA 6 trailer?
Rockstar Games is one of the most successful companies in the industry in hiding the games it has developed. The strategy we see in GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 games is the greatest example of this. There was neither a visual nor a video leak until it was announced that it will be released for both games. A few days after its announcement, it was introduced in a trailer. In short, Rockstar must officially announce the game before we can see anything about the trailer of GTA 6.
On which platforms will GTA 6 be available?
Since the most logical estimated release date of the game is between 2023-2024, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One model consoles will be quite old when the game is released.
Since GTA pushes the limits of technology with every game, it is unlikely that it will release the game for an old console that is behind its release.
The game will most probably be available for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
What will be the price of GTA 6?
The prices of AAA games such as GTA 6 are around 60 dollars / 60 euros, we can see it at this price in the USA and most of Europe.
