Grand Theft Auto VI: Can We Expect More Delay? Take-Two’s CEO Has Spoken!

Strauss Zelnick is very confident that the release date of the gaming industry’s most anticipated game will not need to be changed, so it will be released for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series when they said it would.


Zelnick has recently appeared on several business shows to reassure Take-Two’s investors. When Grand Theft Auto VI was officially unveiled, it was said to be coming in 2025, but a few days ago it was made official that it would be coming to consoles in the fall of 2025. Considering that Grand Theft Auto V was also released in the fall (it came out in September 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3), and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas also had a fall release (October 2004 for PS2), it’s no wonder they want to keep that timeframe.

During an interview with CNBC, Zelnick was asked about how they decide on release dates and how they determine if a game is ready to launch: “There are elements that you can actually measure. For example, the number of bugs in a title, and each of us will make sure that we have as few bugs as possible before we launch. But in the case of an extraordinary title with extraordinary expectations, it’s not really about bugs, it’s about creating an experience that no one has ever seen before, and Rockstar Games strives for perfection in what we do. Perfection is actually hard to measure, it really is more subjective than objective,” Zelnick said.

He added that delays are not uncommon in the industry, and they are not immune to them, but they have publicly narrowed the release date for Grand Theft Auto VI because they are so confident in the game’s status. But what’s new in GTA VI? All he said was that we should watch the trailer again because it will tell us what will be new and different from the other Grand Theft Auto episodes. That was a pretty short answer from him.

Grand Theft Auto VI will be released in the fall of 2025 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.
