UBISOFT has issued an update on the release date for GTA 6 – and gamers are in for a wait.
The gaming studio’s CEO Yves Guillemot said he does not expect industry rival Rockstar to release Grand Theft Auto VI before April 2025.Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot said GTA VI is unlikely to come out before April 2025[/caption]
Guillemot said the new game will be good news for other developers – including French firm Ubisoft.
He said: “Each time there’s a big release like GTA in past, more and more people come back to the industry.
“That helps other games to sell as well.
“We are really organising things around the launch of that game, though we do not know exactly when it is going to happen.
Guillemot added: “We think it will be closer to our financial year ’26 than our financial year ’25.
“But what we’ve seen is that generally it’s actually positive for the market.
“We did a good launch with the launch of GTA 5 first launch and GTA 5 online game.
“Each time we were able to generate really good revenue and profit on the games we launched.”
It comes after Rockstar said GTA 6 will come out in 2025 – without revealing exactly when.
Last December a teen hacker who leaked footage from the game was given an indefinite sentence.
He had his laptop confiscated but managed to steal clips of GTA 6 with a Firestick, his Travelodge telly and a phone.
