What to Expect From Grand Theft Auto 6 in 2023 – GameRant

Fans have been waiting a decade for Grand Theft Auto 6, and while it’s highly unlikely that the open world game will release this year, GTA fans may still have reason to be excited for 2023. The unprecedented success of Grand Theft Auto 5 made it so Rockstar Games wasn’t in any kind of rush to put out the next installment in the blockbuster franchise, especially with the GTA Online multiplayer mode still popular to this day.

With Grand Theft Auto Online still one of the most popular multiplayer games in the world, Rockstar Games has focused on releasing new content updates for it instead of putting more effort into Grand Theft Auto 6. The end result was an entire console generation that came and went without a new Grand Theft Auto game to play, though Rockstar attempted to fill the gap with new versions of GTA 5 as well as open world western Red Dead Redemption 2.

It’s been nearly a decade since Grand Theft Auto 5 first released, but Rockstar Games is finally starting to move on. Rockstar has officially announced that Grand Theft Auto 6 is in development, though official details on what the game will entail are unavailable beyond that fact. However, it’s highly likely that 2023 will be the year that GTA fans finally get their first glimpse at the long-awaited game.

Grand Theft Auto 6 Reveal and Trailer Seem Likely for 2023

While fans should certainly keep their expectations in check, as nothing official has actually been announced, it does stand to reason that Rockstar Games will give Grand Theft Auto 6 a proper reveal in 2023. After all, Rockstar Games may have just officially confirmed that it is making Grand Theft Auto 6 last February, but the project has actually been in development at the company for years at this point.

If one looks at the way Grand Theft Auto 5‘s reveal and release was handled, it could give an indication as to what to expect from GTA 6. Reliable insiders have said that the Grand Theft Auto 6 release date is likely going to be in 2024 or 2025. Grand Theft Auto 5 was first revealed in 2011, two full years before it actually released to the public, and so it’s quite likely that Grand Theft Auto 6 will follow a similar trajectory. If the game is truly aiming for a 2024 or 2025 release, then fans can count on the reveal happening at some point later this year.

As for when the GTA 6 reveal might happen, smart money is that it will take place in October 2023. After all, Grand Theft Auto 5 was first revealed in October 2011, and Red Dead Redemption 2 was revealed in October 2016. Rockstar Games could stick to the pattern, though it’s also possible that the game will get its grand reveal on some other day, as part of an event or press conference tied to another big company, like Sony or Microsoft.

It remains to be seen how much of Grand Theft Auto 6 Rockstar Games will be willing to show in 2023, but more details about the game will likely come out regardless thanks to leakers and industry insiders. Grand Theft Auto 6 suffered from one of the biggest leaks in industry history when extremely early footage of its gameplay was spread online, seemingly confirming details like its male and female sibling protagonists, Vice City as the game’s setting, and some gameplay features that fans would be able to look forward to in the final product.

It’s unlikely that a Grand Theft Auto 6 leak on that scale will happen again, but it is likely that more details on the game will leak to the public. Some of the Grand Theft Auto 6 leaks will be completely inaccurate, of course, but it’s likely that others will have legitimate information for fans to check out. Fans should always take leaks with a grain of salt, but there has been a long history of accurate Grand Theft Auto franchise leaks, and so it’s unlikely that GTA 6 will be an exception to the rule.

At the time of this writing, Rockstar Games has not actually announced any of its plans for Grand Theft Auto 6 in 2023. It’s entirely possible that the year will come and go with no major GTA 6 leaks, trailers, or reveals, though that does seem unlikely. Ultimately, fans of the franchise are going to want to keep an eye out for the first official Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer and other details in the months ahead, with October 2023 looking like the most opportune month for such an occasion. In the meantime, there should be plenty of Grand Theft Auto 6 “leaks,” both legitimate and fake, for fans to consider while they wait for the official announcement from Rockstar Games.
