The makers of Grand Theft Auto, Rockstar Games' parent company Take-Two Interactive, almost certainly confirmed that the sixth edition of the game series will be launched only in late 2025. This statement was made while discussing their recent financial report that indicated a valuation of $24.9 billion. Earlier, they had given a broader release year for the game, but now they have given a more precise time frame for the release, which is during the autumn of 2025.

This implies that followers of Grand Theft Auto will have had to wait for twelve years for the next release in the highly popular franchise.

The recent earnings report revealed some great news as we move forward into Fiscal 2025. There's a positive trend brewing as we anticipate Net Bookings in the ballpark of $5.55 to $5.65 billion. It's important to note that we're narrowing our window for the much-awaited Grand Theft Auto VI. The latest information places its release in the Fall of Calendar 2025, as established by Rockstar Games.

We have full faith that Rockstar Games will bring us an extraordinary entertainment experience, and we are becoming increasingly hopeful about the financial success of the game.

The upcoming Grand Theft Auto VI, known as GTA 6, takes players back to Vice City, a made-up urban area that parodies Miami. This location has been previously seen in the 2002 installment of GTA with the same name, as produced by Rockstar Games.

The company from New York City stated that Grand Theft Auto V has sold over 200 million units, which is a significant achievement. This impressive number represents nearly half of all Grand Theft Auto games sold since the franchise began in November 1997.

The game Grand Theft Auto V has been released on three different consoles, beginning with the Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 in September 2013. Recently, an upgraded version of the game was made available on the newest video game consoles, the Xbox Series X|S and Sony PS5 in March 2022. It features support for 4K Ultra HD visuals, ray-tracing, 60 frames-per-second, and 3D audio. The game remains popular, and this could be due to the continued success of GTA Online.

Experts in the gaming industry have proposed that Rockstar Games might reveal the specific launch date of Grand Theft Auto VI during an upcoming trailer, which is eagerly anticipated to be released this summer. This announcement is expected to create a significant impact and generate a lot of excitement among video game enthusiasts.

Even though the E3 exhibition, which used to be a comprehensive source for the latest news from all major console makers, has been cancelled, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, EA, and Bethesda still conduct digital events every year from May to June, where they reveal major new games, trailers, and updates for current titles. Summer Games Fest might even unveil more information on GTA 6.

Specialists predict that the upcoming release of the next installment of Grand Theft Auto could surpass its own record-breaking sales figures. Grand Theft Auto V currently holds the title for the most successful first week of sales in the history of video games, having earned a whopping $1.15 billion (£1.2bn) in just five days. Despite this achievement, Minecraft is still way ahead in terms of popularity, having sold 100 million more copies and claiming the top spot as the largest game ever.

Dmitri Williams, a professor at the University of Southern California who specializes in the video game industry, is confident that the upcoming sequel will exceed expectations. According to him, the brand's reputation is still top-notch, if not better than ever. Additionally, the video game industry has grown substantially since the original release. If the sequel maintains the same level of success, it could potentially have a massive impact due to the industry's overall expansion.

The gaming sector is enormously huge on a worldwide scale and covers a wide range of genres and platforms. It's so expansive and diverse that even parts of it are bigger than entire similar industries, such as the film industry.

The upcoming edition of the widely played Grand Theft Auto series is going to transport players back to Vice City, where they last immersed themselves in 2006 with the release of Vice City Stories. Rockstar Games has already notified that the game will introduce a female lead character called Lucia, marking the first time since 2000.

There is not much information available about the storyline of the amusing game that combines action and adventure, but many anticipate that it will resemble the escapades of Bonnie and Clyde in a made-up state in the US that parodies Florida, named Leonida.
