Grand Theft Auto fans around the world rejoiced when Rockstar Games finally confirmed GTA 6, developer saysit is well advanced and in development.” After years of leaks, rumors and fan speculation, GTA 6 is officially confirmed to be in development on February 4, 2022.
The GTA 6 project will be live on February 6, 2022, as announced by Rockstar Games. Prior to this, there were strong speculations as well as doubts regarding GTA 6 due to the continued success of GTA 5 across multiple console generations.
In a post shared on their website, Rockstar Games revealed that GTA 6 is in active development with the following statement:

This ends all speculation about GTA 6, and we officially know that the next GTA game will be here soon. However, Rockstar Games has not revealed what stage the game is in development, or when it will be ready for launch.
Rumors suggest that GTA 6 is being developed for current-gen consoles. But, we don’t know if it will be released on the latest generation consoles. Rockstar Games hasn’t shared any information on this either.

Has Rockstar Games announced the release date for GTA 6?
Not yet. Rockstar Games has not shared any update on the GTA 6 release date. The massively popular game development studio has only informed that the next GTA title is in development and well underway.
They haven’t shared a timeline for the expected release date of GTA 6. Previous rumors have suggested that GTA 6 is still a year or two away. So we can only wait for Rockstar Games to share a development update soon.
I expect at this point a very short gameplay trailer highlighting parts of the world of GTA 6 by the end of the year, as well as a fall 2023 release date which will be inevitably postponed to 2024.
It really does look like Grand Theft Auto 6 is finally real. https://t.co/S9uVlWw8Q4

Will Rockstar Games be exclusive to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S?
Rockstar Games only mentioned that GTA 6 is in development but they didn’t specify for which platforms. Earlier, there were rumors that the game was in development for current-gen consoles including PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. It could therefore be an exclusive title for the latest generation consoles.
However, millions of gamers are still using PS4 and Xbox One as they couldn’t get their hands on PS5 due to stock shortage. So, GTA 6 could very well receive a cross-gen release as Rockstar Games wouldn’t want to leave its fans behind.
This would only be possible if the game were released in the next few years, but if the timeline gets longer and the PS5 becomes more available, things could change.
