GTA 6 PlayStation 5 release is the priority, says former Rockstar dev

GTA 6 PlayStation 5 release is the priority, says former Rockstar dev

One dev has explained why a PC launch isn't yet confirmed

The wait for Grand Theft Auto VI may feel neverending but hang on in there folks, an ending is almost in sight.

Rockstar Games may be yet to announce GTA VI’s release date but we know that it’s coming next year in 2025.

The final countdown timer has begun - it’s just that we simply don’t know how much time is left on the clock.

That could soon all change though. It’s been around six months since GTA VI’s first trailer was dropped, truly sending the internet into a frenzy.

That six months has given us more than enough time to pick apart every frame and pixel of the trailer, unearthing all of its secrets.

Fair to say, we’re craving something new. It does feel as if there’s hype beginning to bubble underneath the surface once more.

It’s been a reasonable enough length of time that Rockstar could surprise us with a drop any day now.

The fact that summer showcase season is almost upon us only adds fuel to the fire. Yes, Rockstar likes to walk its own path but note how it dropped GTA VI’s trailer days before The Game Awards.

It may not be a studio known for making use of such showcases but it still tends to time its drops with busy seasons in the annual gaming calendar.

Let’s relive the magic of GTA VI’s first trailer together.

For now though, we’re simply going to have to sit tight and wait. As they say, good things come to those who do just that.

We do have an interesting tidbit about the game’s release platforms though to temporarily occupy our thoughts.

GTA VI is so far confirmed to land on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S but according to one former developer, PlayStation 5 could be the favoured of the two platforms.

“One of the main things I want to touch on is that the reason why a PC port comes later, and not the first thing that comes out, is because they want to prioritise what sells,” ex-Rockstar animator Mike York explained (via Tweak Town).

"Most of the time, especially in the past, PlayStation was the big seller. PlayStation was the console to have; it sold more copies than any other console for the most part; everybody is playing PlayStation."

It makes sense, especially given Microsoft’s recent struggles regarding the company’s future vision of Xbox.

As for that coveted PC release confirmation, I’m afraid there’s no updates at this point in time.
