Grand Theft Auto 6 is the most anticipated game right now. The game’s first trailer was released last December. The trailer showed a few glimpses of the new world of GTA 6 and explores the female protagonist Lucia. Additionally, the release year was also announced which is 2025. However, a new report has surfaced online suggesting that the game may be delayed.

Game lags are nothing new, they happen many times. However, if a delay comes to the much-awaited GTA 6, it will surely piss off the fans. The new report comes from Kotaku, and according to him, GTA 6 could miss its announced release year of 2025. After all, this means that GTA 6 could potentially miss a year and therefore release in 2026. But why the speculation of a delay? Well, let’s check the reason below.

Why GTA 6 could be delayed to 2026?

Gizchina News of the week

Earlier in February there was a report from Bloomberg suggesting that Rockstar Games is asking employees to come back to the office five days a week. The reasons for performing the work on site are said to be performance and security issues. However, the new report suggests that the reason is likely to be the fact that the development of GTA 6 started to “lag”. This was suggested to Kotaku by an anonymous source. It also states that because of this, Rockstar’s management is nervous and concerned about the possibility of missing the 2025 release year. The source also revealed that Rockstar is still aiming to launch the game in the spring of 2025, but if still needs some development, eventually the game will be missed until 2026.

If GTA 6 is delayed it will be very sad. But I would prefer a polished product instead of a broken one. There is a huge buzz about GTA 6 in the gaming community and Rockstar has the responsibility to deliver it. Therefore, if they feel that delaying the game to improve its quality is necessary, they should take this step and ensure its proper completion. Well, this is all unofficial news for now. Currently, Rockstar Games has not yet announced a release change. Hopefully we’ll see trailer 2 soon with a lot more details about the game.
