It’s been almost eight years since GTA 5 first released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2013. Fans are currently in the midst of the longest wait ever for a new numbered entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. And, according to a notable insider, the wait for the reveal of GTA 6 is going to go on for a few more years.
That’s according to Tom Henderson, a leaker known for his COD and Battlefield leaks, who in a new video online said the reveal of GTA 6 could be happening in 2023.
Henderson made the claims about the GTA 6 reveal as the leaker responded to a viewer asking if the new GTA game could get announced in 2022.
Responding in the latest episode of the Gold Gold podcast, Henderson explained: “I doubt it. I think it’s 2023. It seems like we are going to get GTA 5 [Expanded and Enhanced] this year, then next year we’ll get an announcement for the Trilogy as well as a release for the trilogy. Then I’d expect 2023, we’d get the GTA 6 reveal and then like I just said, it wouldn’t surprise me if we get some kind of delay with that as well. 2025 seems like the earliest we will get that released”.

Not only that, but Henderson claimed the next-gen version of GTA 5 isn’t likely to appear at the next Sony event.
On Thursday September 9 Sony will be hosting its next PlayStation Showcase event, which will reveal more on the future of PS5.
But Henderson predicted that GTA 5 Expanded and Enhanced Edition won’t be making an appearance at this event.
Henderson emphasised – however – that this is a “guess”.
The leaker said: “Just based on all of the Call of Duty stuff happening this month, Battlefield stuff.
“You’ve got to bear in mind that GTA 5 E&E is going to be massive.
“But they also look at what different companies are doing during their own particular campaigns.
“So I think we’re probably not going to hear about GTA 5 E&E until next month – would be a decent guess on my behalf as I’m trying to make it very clear that that’s a guess.
“Seems like it’s going to be then in my opinion.”On a positive note though, Henderson said it would not surprise him if GTA 5 E&E is the “best selling game” of this year as it allegedly is a bigger update than most people think.
Earlier this year Henderson revealed a truck load of information he had heard through the grapevine about GTA 6.
It’s been claimed GTA 6 will be set in modern day, will see a return to Vice City, will only be released for next-gen consoles and PCs and that it will have an evolving map a la Fortnite.
