It seems that almost everyone wants the next installment of the Grand Theft Auto series, GTA 6, to be announced at some point but they forget an important detail: GTA 5 is still very much alive. While we learned a while ago that the fifth installment of Rockstar Games would come to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, we also know that sales of GTA 5 reached 135 million copies just a few days ago.

Despite this, a new rumor around GTA 6 is emerging within the GTA community, an apparent leak about a possible launch window and what seems like an exclusivity on the PS5. Rockstar has remained tight-lipped about the potential new game, but it is assumed that the game is already in development for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, possibly also for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Although, the last two platforms depend entirely on when the game is released.

The new rumor comes from YouTuber Son of Atom, who claims that Rockstar Games will finally unveil GTA 6 next year in 2021 and shortly after GTA 5 is available for next-gen consoles. Meanwhile, the YouTuber suggests that the news will be accompanied by details on a collaboration between Sony and Rockstar, which will result in some kind of exclusivity.

Although some think that such an exclusivity is possible, it is very doubtful that, on the one hand, Sony wants to spend so much money on a deal, and on the other, Rockstar or Take-Two would want to strike an agreement of this nature. Looking at the current issues of GTA 5, Rockstar would rather leave everything as it is, and its status quo as a major developer would not be affected.

Now, if the possibility does indeed unfold, are we talking about a temporary exclusivity? This being the case, it would be something like having GTA 5 be released on the PS5 first, which will be rolled out before Xbox Series X/S. For now, as you may have already figured out, nothing is official and should be taken as a rumor and nothing more.

The only thing that is clear and known right now is that none of the parties involved, Sony, Take-Two, or Rockstar Games, have spoken about a new GTA 6, although it is not very hopeful that they continue to say nothing about it.
