GTA 6 release date update: PlayStation and Xbox fans get great news? Rockstar Games latest

GTA 6 release date news begins with a leak that could be music to the ears of PlayStation and Xbox fans looking forward to a new Grand Theft Auto game.

GTA 6 is one of the most highly anticipated games on the horizon, despite not being officially announced by Rockstar Games.

Ever since Rockstar released Red Dead Redemption 2 attention has shifted to what the Grand Theft Auto makers could be working on next.

And an obvious choice was GTA 6 with Grand Theft Auto fans currently enduring the longest wait ever for a new GTA game.

As anticipation about GTA 6 has grown in 2019 the rumour mill has gone into overdrive with big claims made about the unannounced title.

It’s been claimed that GTA 6 will be out in 2020, will be a timed PS5 exclusive and be set in Vice City.

And as fans wait for official word from Rockstar Games about GTA 6 they may have been delivered a release date boost.

The rumour mill had previously claimed that Rockstar Games had another game planned before launching GTA 6.

It had been claimed that Bully 2 – and not GTA 6 – was the next title on the agenda for Rockstar Games.

If that was the case then there was no telling when GTA 6 may launch, with that rumoured 2020 release date looking unlikely.

But it has now been claimed that Bully 2 has in fact been scrapped by Rockstar Games.

As reported on in a post by Video Games Chronicle, a Bully sequel was allegedly in the works as far back as 2008 when a script was written.

It’s claimed that in the early 2010s development on Bully 2 began with Rockstar New England spending up to 18 months working on the title.

However, sources claim that Bully 2 “never built momentum” and work on the project eventually “fizzled out”.

Speaking to VGC, the source said: “It existed, it was playable, it was just a shame it never got off the ground”.

The insider claimed the teams working on Bully 2 were then moved onto other projects.

It had been thought that Bully 2 could have been the next game that Rockstar were releasing.

But, if development on the title has been scrapped, then it could mean that GTA 6 is the next title that Rockstar are set to release.

However, before GTA fans get too excited – and Bully aficionados get distraught – remember it’s best to take all rumours with a pinch of salt.

Hopefully Rockstar Games fans will get official word on the next GTA game sooner rather than later.

It has been over six years since Grand Theft Auto 5 came out on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

It marks the longest wait fans have ever had for a new GTA game.
