The awaited trailer of GTA 6 It was finally revealed in December last year, bringing a brief look at the sequel and lots of exciting news that left fans very excited. Although the launch forecast is set for 2025, many are wondering about the exact date.

In its most recent report, Take-Two, publisher that owns Rockstar, revealed that it lowered earnings expectations for the next fiscal year. Based on this information, according to Nick McKay and Michael Pachter, analysts at Wedbush Securities, the sequel will not arrive in the first three months of 2025with the launch taking place between April of next year and March 2026.

It is worth remembering that an industry fiscal year begins every April and ends every March. The drop in Take-Two’s earnings expectations, in this case, refers to the next fiscal period — which begins in April 2024 and ends in March 2025.

If Take-Two really had plans to release the sequel in the first three months of 2025, earnings forecasts would certainly be much higher. “US$7 billion does not mean GTA in fiscal year 2025,” the analysts’ report said. “We can only assume that GTA 6 it came out of fiscal year 2025, a period that was in line with our previous expectation.”

“The publisher said next year’s booking number will be just over $7 billion, a far cry from its initial comments of $8 billion,” the report explains.

“The fall gives us almost certainty that GTA 6 will not be released in the next fiscal year. That said, we have no reason to believe the game has dropped from the 2025 calendar, but it’s reasonable to assume it will release later that year. [ou até março de 2026]”, concluded analysts at Wedbush Securities.

What is the release month of GTA 6?

While the report and estimates indicate that the new Grand Theft Auto will not arrive until early 2025, Rockstar’s release patterns may indicate when the title will hit the market next year.

Over the past few years, Rockstar Games has always released its big games in the second half of the year. GTA V, for example, hit the market on September 17, 2013, and was re-released on PS4 and Xbox One on November 18, 2014.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was originally released on October 26, 2018, gaining a PC version on November 5 of the following year. GTA Trilogy, Rockstar’s most recent release, hit the market on November 11, 2021, gaining a mobile version in December last year.

In other words, if Rockstar repeats its behavior, we can expect GTA 6 in the last months of 2025, which will give the game time to participate in major gaming awards and still be a sales success on important commercial dates, such as Christmas.

What platforms will GTA 6 be released on?

It is important to note that the platforms on which the game will be available do not appear in the trailer of GTA 6 released last year. In a press release, a Rockstar only mentions PS5 and Xbox Series S and X for 2025 launch.

I.e, GTA 6 officially won’t come to PS4 and Xbox One. Furthermore, PC players will possibly have to wait a little longer until they get their hands on the game, as is Rockstar’s custom.
