Rockstar Games has confirmed that the next Grand Theft Auto game is currently in development, paving the way for the first new Grand Theft Auto game in nearly a decade.

Rockstar made the announcement in a community update for Grand Theft Auto.

Grand Theft Auto 6 Confirmed in Development

"With the unprecedented longevity of GTAV, we know many of you have been asking us about a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series," reads the update. "With every new project we embark on, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we have previously delivered — and we are pleased to confirm that active development for then next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway."

Further details about the game, including a possible release date, remain under wraps for now. Rockstar plans to share more news "as soon as we are ready," and encourages interested fans to keep an eye on the Rockstar Newswire for more details when they arise.

The success of GTA Online has propelled Rockstar Games through the development of Red Dead Redemption 2, and remains a cornerstone of the company's business. It's unclear how a sequel would integrate that already thriving community.

Rockstar's most recent release, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — Definitive Edition, released to a deluge of criticism attacking its plethora of bugs, prompting an apology from the company.
