GTA VI will be on the PS5

Today we’re going to look at some new rumors that suggest the next Grand Theft Auto game is coming to the PlayStation 5. We’ll also look at other rumors that are helping us build an idea of how Rockstar plans to top themselves with the next release in their ongoing series.

The latest leak comes from a post on Pastebin that has since been removed. Online site Dexerto posted coverage of the details. Pastebin has played host to plenty of other leaks, some of which were later confirmed.

In this case, the post was made with a guest account and an unlimited time stamp, meaning the person who wrote it couldn’t remove it. A Reddit user claimed that the post may have been taken down by Rockstar themselves.

Given that this leak has no real proof, we will take the information with a grain of salt. That being said, we’ve updated the relevant elements of this post to reflect the predictions made by the post. Read on to find out everything we know about GTA VI!

Since it released, Grand Theft Auto V has sold over 52 million copies across all of the platforms it was released on. In terms of sales, that’s ridiculous. Given that number, there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that Rockstar Games is going to release Grand Theft Auto VI.

Rumors have been spreading since GTA V was first released and they continue to persist even after the game came to PS4 and Xbox One. Rockstar is still adding new content to the fifth game in the series, but people are clamoring for the next game.

Grand Theft Auto VI is coming to PS5!

Originally people were hoping that GTA VI would show up in a few years, but several rumors have suggested that Rockstar doesn’t plan on doing anything with the series until 2020. The latest leak from the now deleted Pastebin post claims that GTA VI can’t release on PS4/Xbox One because of “memory restrictions.” This suggests it won’t ever come to current consoles, only next generation machines.

The leak also claims that the corporate executives are working closely with Microsoft and Sony to leverage cloud gaming for some of their ambitious online plans. Ultimately, they are waiting to see how the new consoles sell before they decide on a release date, if the rumors are true.

Leslie Benzies, the President of Rockstar North (Developers of GTA), left the company and doesn’t plan on returning. Leslie was integral in the development of the Grand Theft Auto games, so this departure could easily set back the timetables. Rockstar hasn’t confirmed any rumors, but people are saying that now we won’t see a new GTA until 2020 which would put it right in line with the PS5 release we’ve predicted. Can you say launch title?

On top of Leslie’s departure, a game like GTA takes a long time develop. Rockstar has never released a broken game, and that’s because they always take a “when it’s done” approach. We also need to consider the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out in holiday of 2018, so this has likely been their primary focus for some time.

With Red Dead released, it would make sense for Rockstar to ramp up work on the next Grand Theft Auto title, but depending on how far along they may be internally, many are speculating we won’t see the new entry until 2020 at the earliest, which also happens to be when we expect to see the PS5.

Even if the new game releases on the current generation of consoles, we know from experience that Rockstar is capable of porting their games to the next generation, which is something we saw from GTA V. Either way you slice it, Rockstar will eventually do another game in their beloved series, it’s just a matter of when. From what we can tell, it will line up with the release of the PS5.

Rockstar has been known to expand on their worlds and Grand Theft Auto V was their biggest world yet. How are they going to top this one, you ask?
