GTA 6 release date news: Grand Theft Auto blow for PlayStation and Xbox

It is rumoured that Sony will hold a big event in February where the PS5 will get its official unveiling.

The first look at the console and its controller are likely at this event as are demos of games running on the PS5.

Sony could also use the event to announce the PS5 release date, its price point and the games that will be launching with it.

And if the latter is true, and the GTA 6 rumours are accurate, then that could mean the new Grand Theft Auto will be revealed alongside the PS5.

This remains to be seen, but the alleged leaker who made the PS5 GTA 6 launch claims also got other details about the PlayStation 5 accurate.

They correctly leaked that the PS5 would be backwards compatible, support 8K visuals and boast ray graphics.
