The bad news continues to pile on for GTA 6 as Rockstar’s next installment in the series is reportedly in “development hell,” as an insider puts it.

GTA 6 is set to be the next game in the long franchise of the popular Grand Theft Auto series.

While there has not been an official release date revealed for the game, it is rumored to be sometime in 2023.

However, even with that about two years away, fans may need to wait longer as reports claim the development is not going as planned.

According to a DSOG report, Rockstar Mag’ Chris Liberty is claiming that development for the new game is not going anywhere near planned. The report claims that “Rockstar has changed the story and other game elements too many times since 2019.”

When using the YouTube auto-translation, he talks about how poor it’s going for Rockstar. “To date, this is the most chaotic project of Rockstar since their creation,” he said.

The team has run into many issues since Dan Houser’s exit from Rockstar and someone asked if this causing issues. Liberty said they have restarted development since he left and it is a really complicated time for the company.

When asked about the game he wasn’t confident in its outcome, “It is likely to be bad. I learned things this summer that are not reassuring.” Liberty said.

It was also reported that Take-Two wanted to announce the game back in 2020, but at the time of writing this, there still hasn’t been an official reveal.

There is no telling if Rockstar devs will pick up the pace with GTA 6 or if it will ever happen, but Liberty did say that they are working on a Red Dead Redemption Remastered. So fans of the company could have something to look forward to as reports continue to say that development is in shambles.
