Now Playing: Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA VI) Trailer Breakdown

Pretty much every Rockstar Games release in the past decade has been delayed beyond its original date, so fans hoping to play GTA VI in Fall 2025 might want to emotionally prepare themselves for a potential delay.

GTA VI is reportedly now in the final stages of development. Rockstar Games required most staffers to return to the office beginning April 15 to finish the game and to help prevent leaks. Not all Rockstar workers are happy about this, though, as some say the return-to-office mandate removes a lifeline.

GTA VI is in development at Rockstar North in Edinburgh, Scotland, with Rockstar's teams around the world supporting the game's development. Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two has said the developer is seeking "perfection."

In other news, prolific voice actor Troy Baker recently confirmed he is not voicing the male lead in GTA VI.

Rockstar parent company Take-Two recently announced a cost-cutting plan that resulted in hundreds of layoffs and multiple game cancellations. The games industry at large has seen huge numbers of layoffs so far in 2024.
