With the exception of RDR1, no other current Rockstar Games title has made it to any of the other main platforms of the same generation. Although Rockstar titles are typically released first on consoles, PC players eventually get a more polished version a year or two later. Furthermore, since GTA Vice City came out, there has been no PlayStation-exclusive instalment in the series.
Deal Between Sony and Rockstar Games
There has been no official word on which platforms Grand Theft Auto 6 will launch for initially. Although, oddly, in 2020, Foxy, a well-known GTA leaker, tweeted about a contract between Sony and Rockstar Games.
The tweet implies that the cooperation stems from Grand Theft Auto VI, which would place it in the wake of the release of the PS5 version of GTA 5. None of the partnership’s specifics was ever disclosed. Since this is the case, drawing any conclusions about the outcomes of the same is challenging.
However, Rockstar Games is unlikely to negotiate an exclusive contract for GTA 6 to be available just on PS5 because of the franchise’s massive fan base. Not to mention, the era of platform-exclusive games appears to be over, since games like Marvel’s Spider-Man have become non-exclusive.
The official GTA 6 guide has confirmed that the game will contain a map that might be expanded with DLCs. According to the terms of the agreement, Sony will receive some downloadable content and maps for Grand Theft Auto 6 before anyone else. At the moment, however, the prospect of an exclusive release seems too good to be true.
Is the PlayStation 5 going to get Grand Theft Auto 6?
Rockstar Games’ previous patterns of release indicate that their next major title will launch for the current-gen consoles. Later, it will be ported to Windows and other major operating systems (if any).
As a result, Grand Theft Auto VI will definitely be available for the PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox One X/S, as well as Windows 10 and Windows 11. As of yet, though, there has been no formal word, and things could change in a heartbeat. It’s wise, then, to maintain an unbiased perspective.
GTA 6 on PS4 and Xbox One
Given that Grand Theft Auto 6 will be released on all current-gen consoles, attention may shift to the consoles of yesteryear. The Grand Theft Auto 5 video game has been stable on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Regrettably, Grand Theft Auto 6 may never make it to either of these consoles.
GTA 6 is Not Exclusive to PS5
Whether or if it is an exclusive, Grand Theft Auto VI will shake things up significantly. The recently released concept trailer for GTA 6 confirms this, while also providing a taste of what the game’s potential next-gen visuals would be like.
