Millions of Gamers Will Be Left Out: The Next Grand Theft Auto May Be Next-Gen Exclusive
GTA 6, the next game in the Grand Theft Auto series, is arguably the most anticipated game of all time. As more leaks emerge about the game, our anticipation only grows. However, it appears that millions of players will not be able to play the game upon its release.
Insider Tom Henderson has claimed that GTA 6 will be next-gen exclusive, meaning it will only be available on PC, Xbox Series, and PS5. While this is good news for those who have already made the jump to this generation of consoles, it also means that millions of players who haven’t will be excluded from playing the game.
The Xbox Series and PS5 have been out since 2020 but are still difficult to find in stores. While this is slowly getting better, it’s unclear if most people will have access to them by the time GTA 6 is released in late 2024 or 2025. This could mean that millions of players will be left out of playing the game, which is a shame for such a highly anticipated title.
GTA 6 is reportedly set to be the most expensive game of all time.
The game will cost between $1-2 billion.

While this is disappointing news for many players, it’s worth noting that making a strong PC is easier than ever. If you can afford it, building a powerful gaming PC could be a great option for those who are unable to access the next-gen consoles.
The game will feature two protagonists and will be set in Vice City, focusing on robberies. These features make the game sound fantastic, but it’s important to note that it might not be accessible to everyone upon release.
While the hype for GTA 6 continues to grow, it looks like millions of players won’t be able to enjoy the game upon its release. It remains to be seen if this will change by 2025, but for now, the game is looking to be a next-gen exclusive.
