GTA 6 was revealed last year with very little fanfare and even less concrete details about the next major installment in the series. So far, all we know is that Rockstar is actually developing the game, that is, from official information.
Unfortunately, shortly after the announcement, Rockstar suffered a leak. Despite the vast amount of information on GTA 6 found in leaks, it remains to be seen whether the finished product will look like the leaked material.
While we won’t be directly linking to the leaks (they’ve also been heavily taken down since the first leak), we’ll use them to inform our idea of what GTA 6 may be at the start. This reportedly included dual heroes as well as a possible setting. Here’s what we know for now GTA 6 yet,

GTA 6 release date and platforms
While Rockstar Games has finally announced that they are working on GTA 6, has not said anything about when the game will be released, let alone confirming a release date. According to the report of Bloomberg (opens in a new tab)published in June 2022, according to current and former Rockstar employees GTA 6 it was still at least two years away from launch, suggesting a 2024/2025 launch.
Similarly, no information was provided on which platforms GTA 6 will run on. It’s safe to assume it’s coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X| S at launch, however, older consoles are much less likely, depending on when GTA 6 comes to light. In the past, PC ports of Rockstar games came out years after consoles were released, so that may be the case here as well GTA 6. For more details about GTA 6release date and platform.

GTA 6 trailer: when can I watch it?
Unfortunately, Rockstar Games has not released a trailer GTA 6 along with the announcement, suggesting the developer is getting closer to revealing Grand Theft Auto 6 unlike previous titles. With both GTA 5 AND Red Dead Redemption 2Rockstar Games teased the announcement days before releasing the first trailer for either game.
But this time around, Rockstar didn’t tease the announcement at all or preview the game with a trailer, instead just putting the announcement as part of a community post, making it hard to predict if a trailer is coming soon.
GTA 6 map and settings
Rockstar Games has not confirmed where GTA 6 will take us, but there are plenty of rumors suggesting different settings for the game. While every internet tidbit and juicy gossip tidbit looks tempting, some have more water than others.
Most likely it looks like this GTA 6 will be set in Vice City, a fictional version of Rockstar’s Miami, or at least a fictional version of Miami. The previously mentioned Bloomberg report claims a source “close to the case” suggests that Vice City will be featured GTA 6although Rockstar’s original plans were apparently more ambitious. This is confirmed by gameplay leaks, one of which showed a “Vice City Metro” train.
A Bloomberg report claims early development GTA 6 it covered huge areas modeled after both North and South America. However, this scope has apparently been scaled down to focus on and around Vice City, although “the game world remains large, with more indoor locations than previous Grand Theft Auto games.”
However, according to the report, the map will not remain static. Rockstar is planning an update GTA 6 with more cities and indoor locations after release, with these updates going to be much bigger than these GTA 5 received. The idea is to give developers more freedom to create an expansive game map and reduce stressful development overtime. It also means you’ll have new areas to explore once the game hits store shelves. According to Bloomberg, Rockstar plans to add new missions and cities to the game “on a regular basis”, giving us new areas to explore while hopefully reducing the studio’s crisis.
GTA 6 story and characters
Rockstar Games has not confirmed GTA 6We don’t know the story or characters yet, but reports and rumors may indicate what we can expect Grand Theft Auto 6story.
According to Bloomberg Report (opens in a new tab) by Jason Schreier GTA 6 will feature the series’ first heroine and center around a pair of characters based on the American crime duo Bonnie and Clyde. This is confirmed by leaked gameplay footage that shows two different protagonists, male and female.
The Bloomberg report details Rockstar’s efforts to change workplace culture and how the developer has “spent the last four years rebuilding its culture and workplace to become a kinder, more progressive company.” As part of the changes “Grand Theft Auto VI will have a Latina character – the first female playable character in modern Rockstar history.” Who the other main character is and what the nature of their relationship will be is unclear.
In the report, Schreier writes that “a woman who is Hispanic will be one of the two major figures in the story influenced by Bonnie and Clyde’s bank robbers.” Rockstar developers “careful not to ‘hit’ joking about marginalized groups”, unlike previous entries in the series.
Gameplay in GTA 6
Since Rockstar hasn’t revealed any official gameplay details yet, there’s very little we can do right now. According to leaked footage from early development, we’re saying that this year Rockstar seems to be trying out a new mechanic for GTA 6. The emphasis seems to be on looting and heists, with some new stealth mechanics thrown in for good measure.
From the material that leaked (now removed), things look very similar to GTA 5, but with some added and updated aspects such as the ability to lie down. Of course, all this was clearly in the early stages of development, so there’s nothing to talk about GTA 6 the game will end like this.
It is now safe to assume that GTA 6 it will feature the same third-person action as the last few entries in the series. What we don’t know are the smallest details, such as how characters switch, whether there’s a multiplayer element, or how players can interact with the world. The leaked gameplay showed very early development assets that only give us a small part of the picture regarding GTA 6Game.
