This seems pretty legit considering earlier rumours suggested they were going to invest heavily on single player content, shitbag that its literally cut content though, fuck rockstar plus this game is going to be a fucking shadow of its former self without sams writingGTA 6’s rumoured new release window could be much closer than we thought. However, it might come at a cost.
While we know that Grand Theft Auto 6 is on the way, Rockstar Games hasn't officially announced a release date or even a release window. Yet, that hasn't stopped rumours from running rampant on the internet.
However, the most recent GTA 6 leak suggests that its launch might be arriving sooner than expected, but it might come shipped with cut content. As reported by Dexerto, prominent Rockstar Games leaker, Tez2, claims that for GTA 6 to meet its current release window, the developers are “cutting portions of the game”.
Furthermore, it is also claimed that the content being cut from Grand Theft Auto 6 may later release as DLC. Whether it will arrive as paid DLC or via a free content update, remains to be seen. After all, Rockstar Games have released a plethora of free content for GTA Online over the last decade.
That being said, if this cut content would arrive as paid DLC, assuming it is story-based content for the main game, this will be the first time this has happened in 14 years. The last time Rockstar Games released story DLC for the base game was the critically acclaimed The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony for GTA 4 in 2009, respectively.
What’s more, going back to GTA 6’s potential release window, Tez2 believes that while “holiday 2024” was a possibility, “early 2025” is now looking more likely.
Tez2 also claims that “upper management” might not be in a “position to delay” GTA 6 for multiple years. As a result, that is where the content being cut comes into play in the hope of not delaying the game any further.
“Cutting more portions of the game to package into DLCs to release later on may be sustainable for management than delaying further,” claimed Tez2.
Obviously, we should always take rumours and speculation with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise. However, whether it be GTA or Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar Games is no stranger to delaying its biggest titles when it needs to.
So as long as you get story dlc, you're ok with it being cut from the base game? That makes no sense.How is any of this bad news? Content gets cut all the time. And I'm tired of every game needing to be 40 hours long. Plus, I've always wanted GTA to have story DLC so no big deal here.
I’ll take it.I don’t think it will be huge like GTA V, but more contained like GTA IV

Rockstar is the one developer where it completely is sustainable tho. They will recoup the costs of GTA VI within the first week of its release, before Online is even releasedModern game development is not sustainable
The combat in GTA V is utter trash. There are so many improvements they can make. But traditionally, people don't play GTA V for the gameplay mechanics or the archaic mission design. They still play GTA V, 10 years later, because it is still the most fully realized modern world ever created. And there will never not be a time where gamers won't want to reek havoc in the most fully realized world on the marketTBH get this trash out of the gate so that they can focus on a RDR Remaster. Other than a new legion of kids ready to play their first GTA (, kids born when GTAV released will be 10 years old) I don't see the point on releasing GTA VI.
Yeah, its going to bring a truckload of money but what can a new GTA bring to the table gameplay wise? Will they finally evolve from the 2001 style mission design? Also part of the reason GTA V is so successful its because it can run almost everywhere. I don't see GTA VI online being as big as GTA Online.
GTA V was basically the perfect storm: Released at the end of the 7th gen taking advantage of the massive playerbase. Then on next gen consoles with improved features and then the definitive version of the game. An amazing PC port that can scale to run on toasters or max out high end PCs.
In the Xbox activision court documents I believe GTA6 was mentioned as a 2023 release. I don't know that it will hit that but cutting content would be a way to help meet the deadline. Maybe they can cut the escort missions.
It wil be ps5 exclusive
