GTA 6 release date and system requirements
GTA 6 release date
Back in July 2021, Tom Henderson, a Call of Duty leaker, produced a YouTube video predicting that GTA 6 will be released in 2024 or 2025, which was confirmed by the reporter, Jason Schreier, who tweeted that “everything Tom Henderson has mentioned about the game fits up with what I’ve heard.”
The GTA 6 rumors are pretty far-reaching right now, so let’s start with some historical insight. So far, GTA games have been set in the following locations:
- Liberty City – GTA 3, GTA 4, Lost and Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony
- Vice City – GTA Vice City

GTA 6 story
As for the GTA 6 story, there are plenty of rumors in that department too, from multiple protagonists to a single male hero.
The 2020 Reddit leak suggested it would set in the 1970s/80s and feature a single, male protagonist, who’s an up and coming drug lord-wannabe named “Ricardo”.
Another key character called “Kacey” is a part of the narrative. According to that leak, you’ll start off as a grunt doing runs as a cocaine smuggler from Vice City to the new large South American area before making connections with big-time drug lords and making your way up, with the story encompassing multiple cities.
Allegedly, a younger Martin Madrazo will make an appearance as will his father who is a big drug lord at the time. You do some missions for the Madrazo family involving hits on other gangs.
The story will also reportedly tackle topics like HIV and the immigration crisis as it was in the 1970/80s.
The latest leaks, from June 2021, state that the modern-day Vice City version would feature multiple playable protagonists, including a “tech-savvy woman”, with the game’s map growing and changing over time – a la Fortnite. Schreier has since corroborated almost all of those claims, saying on Twitter (via Resetera).
