According to a new leak, the GTA 6 release date is still not known but one vital piece of information has been revealed.
The next Grand Theft Auto game will not be available to play on PS4 or Xbox One.
Several other leaks have said the same thing as this, as well as providing news on its eventual release date.
A new online report out this weekend reveals that GTA 6 will be a next-gen only title, meaning it will be available to play on PS5 and Project Scarlett.
The report doesn’t mention anything regarding Google Stadia or PC, but it would make sense that both platforms would also see launches.
One of the more notable things regarding this latest GTA 6 leak is that it doesn’t provide a release date.
Recent reports have suggested that the next Grand Theft Auto game could launch the same year as the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett console.
But it seems more likely that Rockstar Games has yet to decide when it will be ready.
It should be noted that this latest leak has been posted online, making it difficult to source.
So the details supplied this weekend should be taken with a big pinch of salt.
Other details included in the leak claim that GTA 6 will be set in Vice City but will also include other locations.
One of these will be in South America and will also include characters that have been featured in other GTA games.
There also rumours that suggest some missions will occur in different areas of the United States but won’t be open world.
A younger Martin Madrazo will make an appearance and will provide missions to the player during the story.
It’s unclear if there will be other connections to older Grand Theft Auto titles, which could be an important selling point for fans.
The original Vice City game has a much smaller map, making it problematic for Rockstar Games to completely revamp.
But fans will be hoping that there will at least be some interesting Easter eggs to discover during their gameplay.
There have been a lot of rumours regarding the next Grand Theft Auto game in 2019, even though we could still be waiting years for its release date.
The floodgates opened after a shocking rumour emerged claiming GTA 6 would have a 2020 release date.
Grand Theft Auto 6 was also linked to a shock exclusive deal with Sony’s next-gen PS5 console.
The anonymous post on Pastebin reported that it would be a “big money” deal.
But none of these details has been shared in the latest leak, but they do both claim that GTA 6 will not be available on PS4 and Xbox One.
The idea of a cross-generational title will be tempting for Rockstar Games, especially considering the millions of current-gen consoles providing a massive install base.
But it would also put massive restrictions on what the game could achieve, especially when you consider the specs being shared about the PS5 and Project Scarlett.
