Grand Theft Auto 6 release date delayed for the first time

In recent financial news, Take-Two Interactive has made changes to their earlier statements regarding the launch of Grand Theft Auto VI. This has sparked excitement and anticipation for one of the most highly anticipated video game releases. Despite being confirmed for a 2025 launch, an official release date or month has yet to be announced.

During their latest earnings report, Take-Two had initially forecasted revenue of $8 billion for fiscal 2025, which runs from April 2024 to March 2025. This forecast led to speculation that GTA VI could potentially launch in the early months of 2025, such as January, February, or March. However, the company recently corrected this information, reducing the $8 billion forecast to $7 billion. This correction has led to theories that GTA VI may be delayed until fiscal 2026, potentially pushing its release back to April 2025 or beyond.

While these theories remain unconfirmed, such a shift in release date could explain the reduction in revenue forecasts and suggests that Take-Two will still continue to benefit from significant revenue from pre-orders of the game. CEO Strauss Zelnick has emphasized the company’s commitment to excellence when commenting on the status of GTA VI, stating that “We strive for perfection. When we feel we have optimized the product, we will plan the release.”
