For those looking forward to Grand Theft Auto 6, Rockstar Games has confirmed that the game is indeed in development, though refrained from sharing any more details. In addition to that, the studio talks about the improvements coming to GTAV next-gen versions, and to GTA Online.
In the press release, here’s what Rockstar had to say about GTA6:
With the unprecedented longevity of GTAV, we know many of you have been asking us about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered — and we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway. We look forward to sharing more as soon as we are ready, so please stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official details.
On behalf of our entire team, we thank you all for your support and cannot wait to step into the future with you!
In the same press release, Rockstar announced the GTAV PS5 and Xbox Series release date for March 15, 2022! For an easier read, here’s an overview of the GTAV next-gen improvements from Rockstar:
- 4K resolution, up to 60fps
- Tecture and draw distance upgrades
- HDR option and ray-tracing
- Advanced haptic feedback
- Faster loading times
- Immersive 3D audio

Finally, there’s also improvements coming to GTA Online:
Improvements to GTA Online
GTA Online for PS5 and Xbox Series also includes a range of improvements including the ability to skip the GTAV Story Mode prologue before entering Online, and an all-new GTA Online Tutorial. New GTA Online players will now enter the Career Builder, with instant access to their choice of one of four illicit businesses — Biker, Executive, Nightclub Owner, or Gunrunner — and a sizable GTA$ windfall to help select a property, high-end vehicle, and the firepower required to kickstart their enterprise. Returning players will also have the option to restart their character and take advantage of the Career Builder at any time.
The PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of GTA Online also include the new Hao’s Special Works auto shop, located within the LS Car Meet, which will allow players to upgrade select vehicles (5 new vehicles and 5 existing vehicles at launch) for elite driving performance that takes full advantage of the upgraded power of new console hardware.
Hopefully, we’ll hear more about GTA6 soon! In the meantime, go check out what’s new in GTA Online this week in our weekly update.
