We knew it was happening—I mean, obviously it was happening—but now it’s official: Rockstar has confirmed that a new Grand Theft Auto is coming.
“With the unprecedented longevity of GTAV, we know many of you have been asking us about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series,” the studio said in the latest Grand Theft Auto community update.
“With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered—and we are pleased to confirm that active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway. We look forward to sharing more as soon as we are ready, so please stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official details.”
Note that it’s not necessarily Grand Theft Auto 6 in name—a full, formal title wasn’t given—but given how Rockstar has named the first five mainline games in the series, I think it’s a reasonable bet the pattern will continue. Whatever it ends up being called, it will be very interesting to see how the tone of the game compares to previous entries in the series: Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser, one of the primary creative forces behind the Grand Theft Auto series, left the studio in 2020.
