Will GTA 6 be at E3 2021?
More importantly, Rockstar’s historical release schedule does not support the idea that a GTA 6 the revelation is imminent. Yes, it’s been eight years since GTA 5 came out, but since then the Rockstar family members have released PS4 / Xbox One / PC versions of the game, a host of GTA Online updates, Red Dead Redemption 2, Red Dead Online content and is currently working on the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of GTA 5. Yes, Rockstar is more than capable of handling multiple projects at once, but you can’t just use the time since GTA 5‘s release as a measuring stick for GTA 6‘s reveal.
Although “educated guess” is the best thing you can label GTA 6 release date prediction at the moment, even the most generous predictions cannot justify the game’s release until 2023. Based on the timelines of previous Rockstar reveals, that means even a reveal of the trailer for 2021 seems unlikely
GTA 6 doesn’t need E3 or the competition
The fact that Rockstar and the RGT the franchise has historically had almost no presence at E3 (aside from a few memorable moments) may be reason enough to shoot down any GTA 6 rumors ahead of E3 2021, but in this case the biggest hurdle is the fact that GTA 6 doesn’t even need the E3 projector to shine.
Rockstar could certainly steal the show if he revealed even one GTA 6 teaser during Take-Two’s E3 2021 showcase, but it’s not like the game really needs the show’s attention. The studio could easily reveal the new game on their own terms, the same way they handled it. Red Ded Redemption 2‘s reveal.
More importantly, a teaser for such a massive game that probably won’t release for 2 years (at the very least) may actually negatively impact the buzz for other games Take-Two will feature that require attention. We’ve all seen how the long-awaited and long-awaited sequel trailers can dominate the conversation, and Take-Two would probably prefer that most of that conversation be centered around games that you can buy earlier and play.
