It is arguably from one of the most anticipated games in video game history (as GTA V had been in its time). But GTA 6 has been wanted for many years now. Almost eight years after the release of the last installment (it was September 17, 2013), the new game from Rockstar Games is still not announced and is playing on the nerves of fans. Unfortunately, this could go on for a long time. According to Jason Schreier, GTA 6 could arrive “much later” than 2023.
GTA 6, more than ten years after GTA 5?
Tonight, Rockstar Mag ‘stumbled across an exchange between Jason Schreier and a user on Twitter. The latter wanted to know the journalist’s opinion on the release of GTA 6. In 2020, Schreier had declared that, according to him, the game could be released around the year 2023. Obviously, the man is no longer so optimistic …
Expect everything to be way later than you’d think because of covid

OGTA (Twitter User):
Jason, do you still think GTA 6 will be released around 2023? Like you said last year in the triple click podcast?
Expect everything to happen much later than you expect from Covid.
A saving tweet that destroys the hopes of many fans. But an answer that must be qualified. When he talks about “what you think”, is Jason Schreier only alluding to the user’s tweet? Or, is it generalizing with impatient gamers who already imagine playing the game next year?
At first glance, this tweet would be quite alarming and would indicate that GTA 6 is really not ready for release. In the other case, it could mean that the plans are still set around 2023. But in this case, why the reporter did not confirm what he said last year? One way not to get too wet? Or a real change on the side of Rockstar Games with a development delay for GTA 6?
For the moment, we will just have to be satisfied with that. A delay in the development of GTA 6 could justify the announcement and the release of GTA 5 on next-gen consoles and the many rumors surrounding the remasters. Red Dead Redemption, GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and Red Dead Redemption II are all expected in the coming months on PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. A good way to keep fans waiting until the next game. unpublished?
