GTA 6 Is Unlikely to Release Before April 2025, Analysts Advise | Push Square

Rockstar has officially dated GTA 6 for release in 2025, but there was some optimism evidenced by parent company Take-Two’s financials which suggested the title may arrive early next year. However, updated guidance from the organisation suggests that’s no longer the case, as discussed by Wedbush Securities analysts Nick McCay and Michael Pachter.
Late last week, the firm revised its outlook for the coming fiscal year, which runs from 1st April, 2024 through 31st March, 2025. This downturn of estimated income – from an originally expected $8 billion to $7 billion – suggests Rockstar’s highly anticipated sequel won’t launch early next year. “The drop makes us almost certain that GTA 6 will not be releasing next fiscal year,” the aforementioned analysts said.
However, they added that there’s “no reason to believe the game has slipped out of calendar 2025, but it is reasonable to assume that it will launch later in the year”. GTA games don’t tend to have defined launch windows, as GTA 4 deployed in April while GTA 5 was September. We suspect it’ll drop once the developer’s done, but hopefully we get more insight into exactly when that’ll be later this year.

I've played every mainline GTA game since 2 and I have never been disappointed yet. Rockstar have earned my respect enough for me to say that it'll be well worth the wait. Get it right, not get it quick. Simple as that.
This is rubbish analyst
Take Two downgraded their prediction from 8 billion to 7 billion, this year prediction is 5-5,5billion.
There is no any indication that Take two portfolio will generate those extra 2 billions out of existing library.
It shows that more likely GTA 6 will be released at the end of March right before April.
Unless Take two expects to acquire big company soon.
We suspect it’ll drop once the developer’s done
Seriously??? do these people actually get paid for these predictions.
Obviously it'll drop once they've finished, it won't launch before it's finished and they sure as hell aren't going to just shelve it once they've finished
Take-Two's latest earnings report — «77 million Gen 9 consoles outstanding worldwide, as of 31st December 2023.»
If they had to lower sales expectations after initially assuming more consoles would be in play for them then they'd have to lower that 8 Billion, somehwat. If they initially thought they could sneak it on to PS4 or Series S too and have since been told by the devs that, no, no they can't, they would have to significantly lower that number again.
