If GTA 6 was launching during 2023 then that would mean the next Grand Theft Auto would be coming a whole decade after GTA 5 first launched on PS3 and Xbox 360.
We are currently experiencing the longest wait ever for a brand new GTA game, and if this prediction was right it would mean this wait was set to go on for much longer.
It would also seemingly rule out GTA 6 being a cross-gen release, as the title would be launching when the PS5 and Xbox Series X are well established.
That, in turn, would reduce the likelihood of cross-gen releases around then with devs likely to be solely focused on the next wave of consoles by that point.
But after being dealt the devastating blow that the GTA 6 wait could go on for much much longer, Grand Theft Auto fans have been dealt a reprieve.
