GTA 6 Launch Reportedly Postponed for Potential December Marketing Push
According to recent updates, Grand Theft Auto 6, the highly anticipated next installment in the GTA series, is likely to be unveiled next month with an initial teaser. Reports suggest that Rockstar Games plans a December announcement, potentially aligning with its 25th anniversary, and eyeing a 2024 release. However, internal plans might push the launch to 2025.
Yesterday, we covered Rockstar’s intention to release a GTA 6 trailer in December, following Bloomberg’s report about an imminent announcement. Rockstar Universe and RockstarINTEL have provided further insights into the game’s launch timeline and Rockstar’s promotional strategy.
Rockstar Universe indicates that the game was originally set for a late 2023 reveal with a 2025 release. RockstarINTEL adds that while initially slated for 2024, an internal delay to 2025 seems likely, implying a potential postponement.
Moreover, Rockstar appears to be gearing up for a significant marketing campaign starting December. Sam Houser, Rockstar Games’ founder, reportedly met with an ad agency in New York City to secure various advertising mediums, indicating a major promotional effort.
Intriguingly, the report also suggests that GTA Online might not see major updates or content releases this winter, likely due to the focus shifting towards GTA 6’s marketing kickoff in December.
With the annual Game Awards also scheduled for December, often a time for big reveals, the month is shaping up to be an eventful one for gaming enthusiasts, especially if these GTA 6 rumors materialize.
