THE GTA 6 release date has been pushed back to 2021, and while fans are tired of waiting, releasing such a big game this year on PS5 and Xbox Series X would have disastrous consequences.
A new Grand Theft Auto game is still one of the most eagerly awaited announcements in the gaming world, with fans hoping for something big to come to the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
However, publisher Take-Two Interactive has stated unequivocally that GTA 6 will not be released in 2021, and fan expectations for a surprise reveal at E3 2021 remain extremely low.
And perhaps it’s for the best that the next Grand Theft Auto game won’t be available until 2021. There are several reasons why this was always a long shot, as well as a few reasons why this year would have been a terrible time to launch such a big next-gen title.
Let us begin with the apparent issue that makes the release of GTA 6 in 2021 so unlikely: the enduring success of GTA 5 Online. Grand Theft Auto V and its multiplayer experience, which debuted in 2013, remain among the most popular video games in existence.
Not only is it still at the top of the sales charts, but another port is set to open later this year. A native version of GTA 5, complete with new enhancements and features, will be released on PS5 and Xbox Series X in the coming months.
