GTA 6 | Take-Two hints at 2024 release – again

GTA 6 could be with us as soon as next year (that’s 2024, number fans) an earnings call from publisher Take-Two again hints.


Update: In an August earnings report, publisher Take-Two Interactive – specifically its CEO, Strauss Zelnick – has again hinted that Grand Theft Auto 6 will be released at some point between April 2024 and March 2025.

Again stating that development of GTA 6 is “well underway”, Strauss – as spotted by Gamespot – said that the 2025 fiscal year, which begins in April 2024, would “include new record levels of operating performance.”

In other words, Strauss is reassuring his investors that Take-Two will soon be making an absolute shedload of money. And what’s the biggest IP on Take-Two’s books? Easily Rockstar’s upcoming GTA 6. Take-Two has dropped a hint like this before (see original post below), so there’s thin but building batch of circumstantial evidence that GTA 6 could indeed get a mid-2024 or early 2025 release.

Rockstar hasn’t come out with any official news about GTA 6's launch, of course – but it has recently announced that it’s porting Red Dead Redemption to PS4 and Switch. Yippee, we guess?

Our original story follows…


18 May 2023: The next Grand Theft Auto title could be with us as soon as next year – or at least, that’s how a recent earnings call by publisher Take-Two Interactive could be interpreted.

In a call to investors (as picked up by Gamespot), the publisher talked about its projected earnings for the financial year ending 2025, which it believes could be as high as $8 billion.

“Looking ahead, fiscal 2025 is a highly anticipated year for our company,” Take-Two said on that call. “For the last several years, we have been preparing our business to release an incredibly robust pipeline of projects that we believe will take our company to even greater levels of success. In fiscal 2025, we expect to enter this new era by launching several groundbreaking titles that we believe will set new standards in our industry and enable us to achieve over $8 billion in net bookings and over $1 billion in adjusted unrestricted operating cash flow.”

Take-Two’s sales have been on an uptick in recent years, but $8 billion is a hugely successful year even by its own standards – far higher than its most recent financial year, in which it sold $5.3 billion’s worth of games and in-game purchases.

While Take-Two didn’t mention a Grand Theft Auto sequel by name in its earnings call or the press release that went out with its annual earnings report, it goes without saying that GTA is by far the biggest property in its portfolio. If the publisher expects to have a record-breaking year, then it seems logical to assume that a chunk of those profits will come from a sequel like GTA 6.

If that assumption’s correct, then GTA 6 would likely emerge anywhere between April 2024 and March 2025. Watch this space.
