Grand Theft Auto fans reportedly face a lengthy wait for the sixth edition of the hit game, with an industry insider claiming that it may not be released until 2025.
Gaming website Gamespot reports on a video produced by Tom Henderson, who has a track record for leaking information on huge titles such as Call of Duty and Battlefield.
He has claimed that it will take the Scottish producers of the game four years to complete the much-anticipated GTA 6.
The article also cites that Rockstar has placed greater emphasis on employee wellbeing amid claims of staff being ‘overworked’ to get its previous game – Red Dead Redemption 2 – onto shop shelves.
