A gamer on the GTA 6 Reddit community thread has created a chart full of their predictions as to when we can expect the GTA 6 trailer, unveiling and release dates, as well as when we will see official screenshots.

And, as can be seen in the chart, which can be viewed in full below, there's plenty to get excited about, including a full GTA 6 announcement and trailer dropping this year.

The chart was created by GTA 6 Reddit community member OK-Crow8060 (opens in new tab), and covers a three-year period from today in 2022. This year we see calls for a GTA 6 announcement and the game's first trailer, while in 2023 we see a prediction for another trailer and the publication of official screenshots. Finally, in 2024, we see a trailer, launch trailer and release date called.

As to how accurate these predictions are gamers replying to the post's thread seem to feel these are actually quite accurate predictions, with user AnonymousScout360 for example stating that (opens in new tab), "I actually agree with this and think it's reasonable".

In addition, Reddit user Trojan_Man68 stated (opens in new tab), "that would mean gta 6 is released 6 years after RDR2 which honestly sounds about right", while user JakJohn95 noted (opens in new tab) that, "this prediction might be exactly in my opinion. Fall 2022 is the 20th anniversary of GTA Vice City and this city will be main location in GTA 6. So Rockstar will announce it for celebrate the anniversary and will release it at 20th anniversary of GTA San Andreas, so fall 2024".

Interestingly, this is the second time within a week's period that we've heard 2022 as the year when we'll first get an announcement for GTA 6, with GTA Forums community member Tez2 stating that (opens in new tab) 2022 "is pretty much given for the announcement of the next title". Unlike OK-Cros8060, though, Tez2 states that "a release is expected a year after", which would be 2023, not the 2024 call.

Here at T3 we honestly don't now know when GTA 6 is going to be announced or released right now as there has been so much conflicting information. The timespan laid out here by OK-Cros8060 seems reasonable, and does match up with some of the rumors we've seen reported, but equally so much is unknown and there are so many variables at play that it could end up being entire months or even years off.

After all, it was only a few weeks ago that T3 reported on how GTA 6 is apparently in development hell, and that we may not be seeing anything for a long time.

Our position here at T3 is really this, though. We don't mind how long it takes to make GTA 6 providing that Rockstar actually deliver. And by deliver we mean make a game that fixes GTA V's numerous flaws.

What should Rockstar do to deliver such a game? Gamers have already created a wish list that would lead to GTA 6 being a 10/10 title, as well as some seriously smart innovations that would take open world games to a new level of awesomeness. So let's hope Rockstar is on the case.

How will GTA 6 look on PS5 and Xbox Series X? Here's what we can deduce so far.
