When will GTA 6 be released on PC?

There exists a huge player base of GTA on the PC platform. Rockstar obviously won’t abandon its community. Everyone (including PC and console players) will have to pretty much wait until GTA 6 comes out 1.5 to 2 yearsdepending on when the new Grand Theft Auto comes out in the 2025 release window. Since PC isn’t listed as a supported platform for GTA 6 at launch, desktop gamers will just have to wait.

How long you ask? Well, we thought the same and did the calculation ourselves. Below you can see how long it took for GTA 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 and also GTA IV to be released on PC. Based on this we calculated a speculative release date for GTA 6 on PC below, at!

Game Console launch date PC release date
Red Dead Redemption 2 October 2018 November 2019 (13 months later)
Grand Theft Auto IV
(GTA 4)
April 2008 December 2008 (9 months later)
Grand Theft Auto V
(GTA 5)
September 2013 April 2015 (19 months later)
Grand Theft Auto VI
Coming in 2025 Early to mid 2026 (speculated)

Personally, I don’t think Rockstar will take too long to make GTA 6 for PC. Judging by past numbers, we can see that PC gamers had to wait minimum 9 months. This refers to the GTA 4 release on PC. Speaking of GTA 5: the game was first made for PS3. Then it was made for PS4 and then came the PC version almost two years later.

The latest example (Red Dead Redemption 2) is a good example to take as a reference. In this case, the PC version came after 13 months. Given Rockstar Games’ PC version release timelines above, it’s best to assume we won’t hear anything about GTA 6 for PC until early 2026. at least.

Yet there is a completely new console generation (PS6/Next-Gen Xbox era) is not a concern after GTA 6 releases on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Therefore, according to my speculations, I think we can expect a steady development of Grand Theft Auto VI for PC soon after Rockstar releases the game on console platforms.

Furthermore, Rockstar could be working hard on optimizing the next-gen GTA Online experience. Besides, Rockstar had previously brought on RP modders as employees to take future GTA Online experiences to the next level. Ultimately, the PC version will also be quite refined. We could even see GTA VI for PC get exciting new features similar to the previous game. There is definitely a long wait before GTA 6 is released on the PC platform.
