In July 2022, reliable insider Tez2 revealed that Rockstar Games had plans to remaster GTA 4 and Red Dead Redemption a few years ago. However, the poor reception of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition may have influenced the studio’s decision not to proceed with these projects. This information further strengthens the possibility of a delayed GTA 6 announcement.

Another insider, Chris Marxx, reported on June 22, 2023, that Rockstar Games intends to maintain a one-year gap between the announcement and release of GTA 6. As a result, the official announcement of the game this year remains uncertain, and there is a likelihood of the release being pushed back to 2025. Fans are advised to exercise caution as no official reports have been released thus far.
Despite the excitement sparked by the leaked GTA 6 map a few months ago, recent developments suggest that fans will have to wait even longer for the highly anticipated game. It is important to note that the information provided should be taken with a grain of salt until official announcements are made.
