The release date of GTA 6 is eagerly awaited by the fans. Now Microsoft could have accidentally named the time period for the release.

Redmond, Washington – Hardly any other game is so eagerly awaited by fans as GTA 6. After the huge leaks for the latest part of the Grand Theft Auto series in September 2022, however, the game became a little quieter again. But that could change again, because in a statement on the purchase of Activision Blizzard, Microsoft revealed the supposed release time. And fans may be able to jump into the game sooner than originally expected.

GTA 6: Microsoft reveals release period – game planned for 2024

Then the game appears: In the course of Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard, the company made an official statement to the UK Competition and Markets Authority. In this, the group also writes about the planned GTA 6 and thus indirectly publishes the release time frame of the game. It seems that the game should be released even earlier than expected, because Microsoft speaks of a planned release in 2024 in its report.

The long-awaited GTA 6 is expected to appear in 2024.

Earlier than expected: This news should please fans, because a supposed leak from the film website IMDb spoke a few weeks ago of a release in 2025. So fans may not have to wait so long until they finally get their hands on the new chapter of Grand Theft Auto. Even if it is an official document from Microsoft, neither the technology group nor Take Two have commented on the alleged release leak. With MindsEye, GTA 6 could get promising competition.

GTA 6 Release: Microsoft publishes the release period – that is already known

We already know these things: In September 2022, GTA 6 suffered what is probably the biggest gaming leak in history. A 17-year-old hacker released several videos and images from an early stage of the game’s development. The leaks included characters, settings and cars of the latest GTA part. The “GTA 6” hacker has now been arrested by the police in London.

Many feared that the massive leak to GTA 6 would have far-reaching consequences for the game. However, Rockstar Games gave the all-clear and promised fans that work on GTA 6 would continue as normal. If the information from Microsoft is correct, then this also seems to be true, because GTA 6 is supposed to be released in 2024. But suddenly an old leak causes new discussions: Cars in GTA 6 make fans go crazy – the detail is only noticeable 6 months after the mega leak.
