GTA 6 has been a rollercoaster ride for Rockstar Games. Following a massive leak last year, the studio hoped to show official footage of the game later today without any outside interference.
However, the official trailer was leaked over 12 hours earlier than planned, forcing the developer to improvise and release the trailer. While the first look confirmed a 2025 release window, it did not mention any particular platforms.
There was little doubt about GTA 6 being a current-gen title, but many fans were holding out hope for a simultaneous PC release, unlike the last two Rockstar Games titles. Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the case.
According to Take-Two’s official press release, the game is coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series S|X in 2025.
The publisher has not mentioned a PC version in the press release, and even though this does not rule out the possibility of a port entirely, past Rockstar Games releases suggest that a PC port will come later.
Recently, the game was listed on Metacritic, hinting at a similarly delayed PC release. If the studio is looking to follow tradition, GTA 6 could launch for the platform as early as 2026.
On the other hand, if GTA 5 was any indication, the port could take up to two years.
The first trailer shows an incredibly ambitious open-world game from GTA 6. While the current generation of consoles is full of cross-generation titles, this release might push these consoles to their limits.
The Xbox Series S version, in particular, will be quite interesting and worth keeping an eye out for. Studios like Remedy have claimed that it is quite weak for modern AAA titles, so Rockstar Games’ results on this hardware will be intriguing, to say the least.
GTA 6 is on track to arrive in 2025. Boasting a revamped Vice City, the IP’s first female protagonist, and an unmatched atmosphere from the first trailer, this game is shaping up to be a release worth the years of excitement.
