GTA 7 officially confirmed before GTA 6 is even in our hands

GTA 7 officially confirmed before GTA 6 is even in our hands

You heard me right, GTA VII ...

Grand Theft Auto fans want one thing and one thing only, GTA VI’s coveted release date.

The countdown is still on regardless. Rockstar Games recently announced that the franchise’s next instalment would release in fall 2025, massively narrowing down the previous (and vague) window of 2025.

This is, of course, referring to fall in the northern hemisphere, so we’re talking the months September, October, and November of next year.

With that in mind, GTA VI’s second trailer may not be as near as we’d hoped.

The game’s first trailer dropped six months ago and with the rumour mill originally suggesting an early 2025 release, many suspected that a second glimpse at GTA VI could land this summer.

Given the updated fall 2025 release window though, that’s now unlikely to happen. After all, Rockstar isn’t going to want GTA VI’s hype and marketing to peak too soon.

While it may be GTA VI that we’re itching for more information on, Rockstar Games’ parent company Take-Two Interactive has just shocked us all by mentioning, brace yourselves, GTA VII.

ICYMI: Take a look at GTA VI’s one and only trailer below.

Take-Two Interactive’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, recently spoke at the TD Cowen 52nd Annual Technology, Media & Telecom Conference (via Rockstar Intel) during which he was asked about the franchise’s future.

GTA VII?” Zelnick teased.

More specifically, Zelnick was asked if Rockstar was hoping to avoid having another 12 years between entries, as is the case for GTA V and GTA VI.

“It is important to bear in mind that it’s not like Rockstar put out GTA V and sat on their hands for 12 years, right? We launched GTA Online. That’s turned into a massive, living, breathing ecosystem which continues to perform and grow to this day,” he began.

“So the label totally transformed from a label that made big, standalone, monolithic, games […] to a label that’s now in the live services business. I do think given the scale of that label, it’s a huge company itself, there isn’t much more to be done.”

“This isn’t a situation where it is 12 years of girth of product, there’s 12 years where Rockstar has been putting out a mass amount of content. And another little title called Red Dead [2].”

It’s a brief GTA VII tease, but it’s nice to know that the gears are grinding at Rockstar on a variety of projects.
