Grand Theft Auto VI, aka the lengthy awaited GTA 6, will lastly bless our eyes in 2025. Whereas the primary trailer of GTA 6 has come out, many are questioning about which platforms does GTA 6 launch on? With tons of gamers on PC, many are additionally asking if GTA 6 will be launchd for PC.

To clear everybody’s doubts, Rockstar has, in truth, revealed some data. Launch platforms should not discovered on the finish of the trailer, which merely states ‘Coming 2025’ as an alternative. Take-Two Interactive, the guardian firm of Rockstar Video games, printed the announcement of Grand Theft Auto VI on its web site.

It was confirmed right here that Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA 6) is coming to PS5 and Xbox Collection X/S gaming consoles. Sadly, PC just isn’t talked about right here. For now, GTA 6 is not going to be releasing on PC in 2025. This can be a heartbreaking sentence to learn, certainly. Nevertheless, apart from the dangerous information, there’s nonetheless hope for GTA 6 releasing on PC quickly after its debut on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Collection X/S consoles.

A large participant base of GTA exists on the PC platform. Rockstar will clearly not go away its neighborhood excessive and dry. Everybody (together with PC & console gamers) has to attend for GTA 6 to launch for about 1.5 to 2 years, relying on when the brand new Grand Theft Auto releases in its 2025 launch window. Since PC just isn’t talked about as a supported platform for GTA 6 at launch, desktop players will merely have to attend.

How lengthy do you ask? Properly, we thought the identical and did the calculation ourselves. Under, you could find how lengthy it took for GTA 5, Pink Lifeless Redemption 2, and likewise GTA IV to come back out on PC. Based mostly on this, we’ve calculated a speculative launch date for GTA 6 on PC beneath, too!

Recreation Console Launch Launch Date PC Launch Date
Pink Lifeless Redemption 2 October 2018 November 2019 (13 months later)
Grand Theft Auto IV
(GTA 4)
April 2008 December 2008 (9 months later)
Grand Theft Auto V
(GTA 5)
September 2013 April 2015 (19 months later)
Grand Theft Auto VI
(GTA 6)
Coming in 2025 Early to Mid 2026 (speculated)

Personally, I don’t assume Rockstar will take too lengthy to make GTA 6 for PC. Going by the previous figures, we are able to see that PC players needed to wait a minimal of 9 months. That is referring to the GTA 4 launch on PC. Talking of GTA 5, the sport was made for PS3 first. Then, it was made for PS4, after which the PC model got here nearly two years later.

The newest instance (Pink Lifeless Redemption 2) is an effective one to take for reference. The PC model got here after 13 months on this case. Contemplating the above timelines for when PC variations of Rockstar Video games launched, it’s best to imagine that we gained’t hear about GTA 6 for PC till early 2026 on the very least.

Nonetheless, an entire new console era (PS6/Subsequent-Gen Xbox period) just isn’t a regarding issue after GTA 6 releases on PS5 & Xbox Collection X/S. Therefore, by my hypothesis, I believe we are able to count on regular growth of Grand Theft Auto VI for PC shortly after Rockstar releases the sport on console platforms.

Furthermore, Rockstar might be working arduous on optimizing the next-gen GTA On-line expertise. By the way in which, Rockstar had acquired RP modders as workers earlier to raise future GTA On-line experiences. In the long run, the PC model will probably be fairly refined too. We may even see GTA VI for PC include thrilling new options much like the final sport. There may be undoubtedly a very long time to attend for GTA 6 to launch on the PC platform.
