Ever since GTA 6 was announced fans have been highly excited about their favorite series getting a new title after more than a decade. Then the trailer was released and the amount of love fans poured was overwhelming. Now along with the excitement, fans that have the Xbox Series S are also worried whether they will be able to play the game on their console.

According to the official statement of Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto 6 will be released for the Xbox Series S. This surely is news to rejoice for the fans that own the Xbox Series S, as it confirms that they will be able to play their favorite game.

However, some fans were cynical have questioned how good the quality of the game will be on the Xbox Series S. They have given examples of Baldur’s Gate 3 which was released for the Xbox Series S but faced many issues. The developers Larian even removed the split-screen co-op feature from the Xbox Series S version of Baldur’s Gate 3 due to the weak hardware.

Rockstar Games possess influence far greater than Lairan so if they feel that the Xbox Series S will not be able to handle GTA 6, it is possible that they might scrap their plans of supporting the console. This is just speculation on our part but it is not a wild guess, since we are basing it on the past and it is logical for a developer to not want to face unwarranted criticism for their work when it is in fact subpar hardware that is the cause for inferior gameplay and other potential issues.

Which Platforms Will Grand Theft Auto 6 Be Released On?

Rockstar released a press statement after the release of the first trailer of GTA 6 on December 4, 2023. The official press release states, “Grand Theft Auto VI is coming to PlayStation 5 computer entertainment systems and Xbox Series X|S games and entertainment systems in 2025.” 

This confirms that GTA 6 will definitely be released on the PS5 and Xbox Series X and S. However, it also makes the probability of the release of the game on older generation consoles and Microsoft Windows bleak. If Rockstar does decide to not release the game for PC, it will be a highly surprising move. 

According to previous statistics, the Grand Theft Auto series has been highly successful on the PC. It is possible that GTA 6 will not be released on the PC at the initial launch but fans will be able to play the game on their PC later on. However, this is not guaranteed so we do not want to raise your hopes unnecessarily.

When Will The Grand Theft Auto 6 Release?

It has been confirmed by the developer Rockstar Games that the GTA 6 release date is set for 2025. This news arrived along with the first trailer of the game but there was no exact date given.

However, both Take-Two, the owner of Rockstar Games, and Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Rockstar Games, have heavily implied that Grand Theft Auto 6 should be out in stores by March 2025. 

What Is Grand Theft Auto 6?

Grand Theft Auto 6 is an upcoming action-adventure game and the 6th chapter in the legendary series by Rockstar Games. The state of Leonida which is the fictional open world of GTA 6 is heavily inspired by the real sunny and beach-filled state of Florida. 

Another location based on real-life Miami is the Vice City which has been featured in Leonida. Vice City has been previously featured in the first title of the Grand Theft Auto series and was the main location of both the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Vice City Stories games.

GTA 6 is rumored to have the largest map in the series and may even let players explore locations outside of Central America. Another claim about the map is the ability to evolve as the game progresses. 

However, what this exactly means is not clear but we think it is possible this can point towards new locations being added as you explore the world of GTA 6 or it could mean that the weather of the game has a dynamic mechanism. That said, keep in mind without any further information or playing the game, it is all guesswork.

What Did The Grand Theft Auto 6 Trailer Show?

The main storyline of Grand Theft Auto 6 is based on Lucia, the first official female protagonist of the series, and Jason, a male partner of hers. There have been playable female characters in the previous chapters but nothing so fleshed out and majorly featured. 

The criminal duo is said to be inspired by infamous criminals Bonnie and Clyde and their introduction in the trailer shows them as inmates who break free from prison.

Some other things showcased in the trailer are beaches, boats, bathing suits, and bayous, which is not surprising due to the map being based on Florida. Multiple modes of transportation were shown in the trailer. For instance, we saw cars being raced on highways, speedboats cruising the sea, planes being flown in the sky, and dirt bikes on the streets.

This concludes everything we currently know about the Grand Theft Auto 6 release on the Xbox Series S. Unfortunately it is not likely that it will be possible for the console to handle the game but if anything changes, we will let you know.
