The release of GTA 6 on PC may not happen until 2026, causing a sense of déjà vu for gamers who had to wait a similar amount of time for the release of GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 on the platform. The trailer for GTA 6 has unveiled a new protagonist duo, the return of a familiar setting with a new look, and a strong social media presence. However, PC players shouldn’t get their hopes up for a 2025 release, as the press release did not mention the platform.
Instead, the latest Grand Theft Auto installment will first be available on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 as a truly next-gen game. The release date for the console version is currently unspecified and is expected to arrive on PC at a later date. The anticipation for the console release is further fueled by various easter eggs found in the trailer, such as a plane carrying a banner with a cryptic message.
One easter egg features a banner with the message “why sixty-nine when you can nine 1 nine?” Leading fans to speculate about a potential release date of September 19, 2025. However, the true meaning behind the message remains uncertain, and fans will have to wait for more clues from Rockstar. With the console release likely happening towards the end of 2025, fans will need to exercise patience until further updates are provided by the game developer.
