A new report from Kotaku claims Grand Theft Auto VI might miss its 2025 release window and be delayed to 2026. This is according to sources with knowledge of the development of the game.

The sources say that “early 2025” is the internal goal to release GTA6, however, development on the game is “falling behind” and Rockstar leadership is worried the game might slip into 2026. 

A delay to 2026 according to the sources is considered a “fallback plan” or an “emergency” option if needed. Rockstar Games in the past has waited until the “last minute” to make changes to plans.

A report from Bloomberg states Rockstar Games has asked its employees to return to the office full-time in the beginning of April. It says  Rockstar head of publishing Jenn Kolbe told employees the company plans to end hybrid working for productivity and security reasons, and believes there are “tangible benefits” for working in the office.

Grand Theft Auto VI is one of the most anticipated games of all time with the first trailer topping 100 million views in about a day and a half.

Grand Theft Auto VI is in development for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
