Take-Two Interactive, the video game company that owns Rockstar Games, has revealed some big plans for the 2025 fiscal year in its earnings reports. The company has stated that the year is a “highly anticipated” one for the company and expects it to bring in $8 billion in net bookings.
While there’s no mention of Grand Theft Auto 6 still, reading through the statement, one can tell that the much-anticipated title could finally arrive in FY 2025.
“In Fiscal 2025, we expect to enter this new era by launching several groundbreaking titles that we believe will set new standards in our industry and enable us to achieve over $8 billion in Net Bookings and over $1 billion in Adjusted Unrestricted Operating Cash Flow. We expect to sustain this momentum by delivering even higher levels of operating results in Fiscal 2026 and beyond,” reads an excerpt from the report.
So far, Rockstar has revealed almost nothing about GTA 6 apart from tiny teasers. However, major leaks have given us an idea of what to expect from the game, including huge improvements to the graphics and gameplay mechanics.
On September 18, gameplay footage made up of 90 videos of unfinished and early development builds leaked out, allegedly obtained by a hacker from Rockstar Games’ internal Slack. The videos show a female playable character named Lucia, who can rob restaurants, take hostages, and ride the Vice City Metro train.
GTA 6 is also expected to be based on the Vice City map, although this time it will be 2x bigger than the GTA 5 map.
While the report doesn’t provide a specific release date, a release window of fiscal year 2025 could mean that GTA 6 will launch between April 1, 2024 and March 31, 2025. And within this timeframe, holiday 2024 is being speculated as the most likely option, given that most major titles are announced at that time. Hopefully, there are no Cyberpunk-like delays this time around, though.
