Rockstar Games has officially confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 6 is in development. The last version of the game was released almost a decade ago in 2013, and it has been incredibly successful.
The news was confirmed in a statement by the developer. While making the announcement, Rockstar Games said that they knew that many people had been asking about the next GTA game, and that issue has now been addressed.
The developer said that each version of the game seeks to introduce significant upgrades on what they previously created.
According to the company, the development of the new game is "well underway."
The news comes as a huge relief to many GTA fans. There has been nothing but rumors about the release of the next game in the series for several years.
Many fans were therefore happy with the announcement, although it might not come as a huge surprise to them. The best thing about this report is that the speculation on whether or not a new game is being created or not has finally come to an end.
Even with the statement, little is known about the upcoming game, including its release date.
According to insiders, the development process is still in the early stages. Some suggest that eager fans might have to wait until 2026 before the game gets an official release.
Rockstar asked fans to stay tuned for more updates on its official site. So, many are still waiting for more details about GTA 6 and what will make it so special.
GTA is one of the best-selling games of all time.
In addition to the statement Rockstar made about GTA, there was also an announcement about an update that would make Grand Theft Auto Online available to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S users on March 15.
That will effectively turn GTA into one of the few games that can be played on third-generation consoles.
Even as the developers work on GTA 6, they will also be giving fans several updates to the GTA Online open-world platform. That will include a "Career Builder" mode and a new auto shop that will be available to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S gamers.
This should allow them to upgrade certain vehicles. According to Rockstar, the changes should allow the game to exploit the "full advantage" that the upgraded power of the new console hardware offers.
