GTA fans fear waiting for the next game in the series much longer than they had hoped.
Players were desperate for a release date window and thought details might emerge during a major trade update held by publishers on Monday.
But their dreams have been dashed, after Rockstar Games owner Take-Two Interactive gave no clues as to when GTA 6 will land.
In fact, one presentation raised concerns that the wait might be considerably longer.
A slide of plans for 2023 to 2025 revealed on Twitter showed no sign of GTA, so we might be looking at 2026 at the earliest.
“So GtaVI is faaaasaaar away,” one gamer wrote on Twitter.
“Oh my God, no more GTA remasters and not GTA 6. Yawn,” another reacted.
Although nothing is confirmed yet.
Rockstar may be keen to keep things under wraps a bit longer before giving launch dates.
“They wouldn’t put GTA 6 on something like this no matter what,” one user guessed.
“This is only for publicly announced games.”
The doc says so too, teasing that “it’s likely…we’ll be adding new titles to our roster as well.”
So all hope may not yet be lost.
The last title in Grand Theft Auto’s main series, GTA V, was released in 2013.
Rockstar only announced that a new entry in the franchise was in “active development” in February.
