A new GTA VI rumour suggests PlayStation might have special access to Rockstar's upcoming open-world to tell more PS5 consoles.
We're about to get our first proper look at GTA VI next week, as Rockstar recently announced plans to reveal the game to the world with a new trailer. The trailer will air on 5 December, and is expected to include gameplay, story teases and a release date.

While it's unclear if Rockstar is aiming for a late 2024 or 2025 release, we do know the next Grand Theft Auto will be launching on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S whenever it releases. However, this has raised questions about when PC players will get their hands on the game, as Rockstar's previous releases, like GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2, both released on consoles first, before being ported to PC platforms.
Now, a new rumour suggests our worst fears will be realised, as it's believed console players will get to play the game first, and it'll even be used to market PS5 consoles with a new bundle.
In a tweet by Alex Smith, it's said that Sony has acquired the marketing rights for GTA VI. Rest assured this doesn't mean PlayStation users will get exclusive access to the game, Xbox fans will still be able to play, but it does mean Sony can use the game's intense popularity to sell more consoles that have the game included.

PLAYSTATION will have the marketing rights for GTA6 on PlayStation 5.Furthermore:The game will not be released simultaneously on PC/Consoles, leaving for PC 1 year later. PLAYSTATION is already thinking Bundle with PLAYSTATION 5 PRO #GTA6 https://t.co/BKIMNMXrx0
It's not exactly the end of the world for console fans since Xbox players can just buy the game on the first day like everyone else will, but if the rumour is true it does suggest PC players will be left out for a while. It took around a year for GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 to make their way onto PCs, so whether it'll be the same story this time around is unknown until Rockstar speaks up about it.
In the meantime, stay tuned for the official GTA VI trailer, set to break the internet tomorrow.
