Hey there, gamers! We’ve got some exciting news about the upcoming Grand Theft Auto 6 release from Rockstar Games. In this article, we’ll cover two crucial details you’ve been dying to know: the expected release date and the potential price of the game. Let’s jump right into it!

Expected Release Date

Anticipating the release of GTA 6 based on its predecessors’ timelines may no longer be relevant. For example, Grand Theft Auto 4 was released in 2008, followed by GTA 5 in 2013. Initially, fans expected GTA 6 to be available between 2018 and 2020 if we consider the seven-year development gap between Grand Theft Auto 3 and 4.

However, due to unavoidable circumstances and other projects that Rockstar worked on, this timeframe did not materialize. As per Forbes, the most likely option is a release during the holiday season of 2024 or early-mid 2025. Here’s why:

  1. Release window competition: The holiday season is typically a popular time for significant game releases, leading to a crowded market. However, recent delays have resulted in many games launching in the following spring or summer. 
  2. Potential delays: Most AAA games experience delays, and it’s not uncommon for the initially announced release date to be pushed back by 6 to 18 months. Hence, a 2025 release window might be more likely due to these delays.

This is just an educated guess, and Rockstar’s focus on GTA 6 may influence their ability to stick to a set release date. We will provide more details as new information becomes available.

Will GTA 6 cost more than $80? 

Naturally, fans are curious about the price point of GTA 6. The standard edition of GTA 6 should be priced between $60 and $80, while deluxe and ultimate editions could range from $80 to $100. A collector’s edition might cost around $200. This price range is derived from previous Rockstar releases and considers the typical pricing of AAA games.

GTA 6 Possible Pricing: 

  • Standard, deluxe, and ultimate edition: $60 – $100
  • Collector’s edition: $199+

Considering the immense popularity and notoriety of the franchise, along with the anticipated expansive world of GTA 6, the game’s sales are expected to surpass those of its predecessor, particularly with the inclusion of GTA 6 Online. We anticipate that the game will set new records.

As we eagerly await the release of GTA 6, the expected release date of holiday 2024 – 2025 seems most plausible based on market dynamics. While delays are always a possibility, Rockstar’s extended development time and revenue forecasts suggest a commitment to meeting this timeline. Stay tuned for more updates as we receive further information about this highly anticipated game.
