Grand Theft Auto fans all saying same thing after GTA 6 release date leak
GRAND Theft Auto fans are fuming after leaked documents hinted that they're still years away from playing the franchise's next instalment.
Internal company files from TakeTwo Interactive, the New York-based developer behind the game, point towards a release no earlier than 2024.
The documents forecast a 14 per cent growth leading up to 2024, leading analysts to believe the publisher has a major release planned for that year.
A number of analysts reacted to the financial report, which was submitted online by Take Two, the parent company of Rockstar Games, on January 10.
"There are only a handful of titles that can… provide managemenet with the confidence to put out such a strong guidance," said investment analyst Stephen Totilo.
"We believe there is at least one Rockstar IP set to be released by ."
The prediction echoes those from industry veteran Jason Schreier, and industry insider Tom Henderson, who have both said that a 2024/2025 release is likely.
Fans were quick react to the news, which pushes the release date back from the 2023 date indicated in earlier forecasts.

One user wrote on Twitter: "Sooner or later they will have to announce GTA6. Forever milking part 5 will not work."
Another fumed: "GTA fans should boycott GTA5 until Rockstar actually becomes open & transparent around GTA6."
Grand Theft Auto 6 is the rumoured follow-up to GTA V, which has sold more than 150million copies and made more than £5billion since its 2013 release.
A next-gen version of the hugely successful game is out in March and will mean the title has spanned three console generations.
Creator Rockstar Games has yet to acknowledge it's working on the next instalment to the franchise, but it's safe to assume it's in the works.
Like previous GTA games, you'll play as a character or characters involved in the criminal underworld of a fictionalised version of a major U.S. city.
GTA 6 release date rumours have been swirling for months and Rockstar's job listings provided another clue this week.
GTA insider and leaker Tez2 seems confident that the game will launch next year, and will be officially announced at the end of 2022.
"Can't wait for the announcement this year," they posted on a GTA forum this week, cementing their position.
The GTA 6 2023 release date hype is now gaining momentum thanks to a recent job listing.
Twitter user @chi_colossimo spotted a couple of job listings for an Interaction Designer and UX Designer.
The listings point to Rockstar creating "digital experiences" for "players to engage with our brands in new and exciting ways."
Speculation is that this is for a marketing push tied to GTA 6's digital media campaign.
Of course, there's no mention of GTA 6 in the job listing, and Rockstar remains as tight-lipped as ever.
Games are often announced years in advance, so even if we saw a GTA 6 announcement in 2022, that doesn't mean a 2023 release is inevitable.
