Rumor: Grand Theft Auto 6 will be released in 2025 and set in Vice City

The next Grand Theft Auto game may not be released until 2025. That’s what Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson recently suggested. Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier confirmed on Monday that this matches information from his own sources.

The information comes from Tom Henderson, who last week posted a video sharing details about GTA 6. Tom Henderson is best known for his Battlefield leaks ; for example, he shared accurate details of the upcoming game Battlefield 2042 early this year. The leaker states, among other things, that the upcoming GTA game has a modern setting and takes place in Vice City. The map of the game would be continuously adapted and updated after release and the game would also have a female lead character.

Another well-known insider , Jason Schreier, endorses Henderson’s information. “Everything Tom Henderson has said about the game matches what I’ve heard,” the Bloomberg journalist wrote on Twitter . Schreier endorses, among other things, that GTA 6 will have an evolving and expanding map .

Henderson reported last week that the game may not be released until the end of 2025 and writes on Twitter that he is willing to bet that the game will not be released until 2024. According to Henderson, the longer wait is caused by a commitment by Rockstar Games to improve the well-being of its staff. For example, the studio wants less crunch within the company, something that was the case with previous Rockstar projects.

In 2018 , Jason Schreier , then still a Kotaku employee, reported that many developers at Rockstar Games stated that during the production of Red Dead Redemption 2, for example, they ran 55 to 60-hour workweeks, which equates to six 10-hour workdays. Former Rockstar employee Dan Houser spoke in an interview with Vulture about “100-hour work weeks.”
