GTA 6 rumours are coming thick and fast this week, although they’re not all positive.

In our latest GTA 6 release date rumour round-up, we look at two contradictory reports about when the next Grand Theft Auto game will be announced, followed by when it could actually launch.

One slightly more positive report suggests GTA 6 is closer to launching than perhaps we first thought.

According to The National, Rockstar is currently in the process of hiring game testers to work in Edinburgh, India and Lincoln.

Successful candidates will need to be competent gamers, and have “knowledge of current generation games consoles and PCs”.

Needless to say, this has led to speculation that a new game in the Grand Theft Auto saga is currently in the testing phase, and could launch sooner than expected.

Unfortunately, however, it’s a case of one step forward and two steps back, because other leaks suggest fans will be waiting a lot longer for the GTA 6 release date.

One prominent GTA leaker claims that Rockstar has the sequel earmarked for a late 2023 release date.

Furthermore, the same source believes that GTA 6 won’t be revealed until after the release of PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of Grand Theft Auto 5.

This would result in GTA 6 being revealed late in 2022, before launching a year later in the tail-end of 2023.

“Questions I’ve been getting, they’re not going to announce GTA VI before GTA V’s next-gen upgrade is released,” reads a ViewAnon tweet.

“RED DEAD REDEMPTION II was announced one year before its original release date. Expect GTA VI to be announced late next year if COVID hasn’t set it back.”

Previous rumours have suggested GTA 6 will be set in the 1970s or 1980s, and feature a single playable protagonist.

Likewise, the next Grand Theft Auto game will allegedly take place in Vice City and Rio de Janeiro.

But despite rumours that GTA 6 will take place in Vice City, Express Online readers would prefer if the action shifted to London.

In a poll with more than 3,200 votes, nearly 1,500 fans said that GTA 6 should be set in London.

That’s compared to just 720 votes for Vice City, 372 votes for Tokyo, and 336 votes for somewhere else entirely.
