GTA 6 Main Story Expected To Be 35-40 Hours Long

Expert Verified By

Similar Length As GTA 5!

Story Highlights

  • GTA 6 has been in development for nearly eight years, but it won’t be much longer than its predecessors.
  • The game reportedly offers around 35-40 hours of story content.
  • This would make it slightly longer than GTA 5, putting it in the same ballpark.

GTA 6 has the entire gaming industry’s attention to itself. After an electrifying reveal a few weeks ago, the trailer has broken several records, becoming one of YouTube’s biggest videos.

Following the reveal, details about the game are not expected for a while. However, a leaker may have revealed an estimate for the game’s main story. According to a new report, GTA 6 will offer around 35-40 hours of story content.

Why it matters: Red Dead Redemption 2 was much longer than the average Rockstar title, leading to expectations that this would become the norm moving forward.

This information comes from YouTuber LegacyKillaHD, who claims to have heard the information from his sources last year.

For reference, this length would put GTA 6 on par with other Grand Theft Auto games. GTA 5 also required around 30 hours to beat on average, but the game had much more to offer for those willing to explore side activities.

We expect GTA 6 to offer a similar experience. Since games are typically becoming longer and longer with each new release, this length might be a pleasant surprise for those hoping for a more condensed experience.

Rockstar should also be able to present a more focused narrative thanks to the shorter run time, eliminating the use of filler content and padding in the story.


Still, some may be disappointed that the game offers 35-40 hours of story despite eight years of development. It is important to note that this is just a rumor for now. GTA 6 may well be longer than 40 hours, but nothing has been confirmed from Rockstar so far.

GTA 6 is still at least one year away. However, despite this release window, the game has already won an award from PlayStation, highlighting the incredible buzz for what could be the industry’s biggest game to date.
