Many Rockstar Games fans thought that after the release of GTA: The Trilogy, the long-awaited GTA 6 was waiting for them. They were disappointed when they found out that GTA 6’s release date was pushed back due to the development of the GTA 4 Definitive Edition remaster.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is still a few days away, and the fans of Rockstar Games are already waiting for GTA 6 official announcement. Many of them were hoping that the new part of cult franchise will become the next great project of famous developers. However, even before the release of the updated GTA: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition they have already been disappointed. A well-known insider RalphsValve said that now Rockstar Games is busy with GTA 4 remaster. As with GTA: The Trilogy, the players won’t get a full-fledged remake, but only an improved version with updated graphics and gameplay edits. In spite of this fact GTA IV – The Definitive Edition will be released only in 2023. That means GTA 6 won’t be released until 2024 at the earliest.

An insider does not yet know how serious the graphics and gameplay changes will be in the GTA 4 – The Definitive Edition remaster. Perhaps the improvements will be at the level of GTA: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition from GTA: The Trilogy. He knows, that the updated edition will include GTA: Episodes From Liberty City add-on collection. The release is expected on PC, as well as on consoles of two generations. Perhaps there will be a version for Switch. Many fans of the series started writing that GTA: The Trilogy is enough for them and they don’t want another remaster, because it moves GTA 6 release date to too long period. In response, the insider said that it will take much more than three years to develop such a large-scale game, so fans of the franchise should not hope for a release in the near future.
GTA: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition as part of GTA: The Trilogy will be released on November 11, 2021 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Switch. There’s no official information about GTA 6 yet, but insiders claim that development has long been underway.
