GTA 6 Speculated Pre-Order and Price Details

In Short
  • While definite details about GTA 6 pre-order aren't out yet, we have made some educated guesses about the pre-order and pricing for the upcoming game.
  • We expect the pre-orders to start in late 2024, judging by past Rockstar Games pre-order cycles.
  • Furthermore, we expect the pre-order pricing to start from $70.

Even though the much-awaited GTA 6 trailer told us the game won’t be here before 2025, that hasn’t stopped gamers from asking questions. Besides asking will GTA 6 be cross-platform, a big query gamers have is about the GTA 6 pre-order and pricing details. While we don’t have a lot of official info from Rockstar, we have enough patterns to make some educated guesses. We sorted through it all, so you don’t have to. So, without further ado, let’s talk about the expected pricing and pre-order details for GTA 6.

GTA 6 Speculated Pre-Order Details

Unfortunately, much like the cross-platform details, we can only make some educated guesses regarding the GTA 6 pre-order and its price. Based on past launch editions, we can draw some correlations to what you can pre-order when the game is eventually listed.

When GTA 5 opened itself for pre-orders, there were three editions you could purchase. This included the Standard, Special, and Collector’s Editions. The standard pre-order came with the game, a manual, and a map. The special edition gave players the game, a blueprint map, some in-game digital items, and a steel book. The collector’s edition gave you more digital items, everything from the special edition, a security bag, and a Los Santos cap.

Red Dead Redemption 2 also followed a similar release edition cycle. In addition to the standard edition, you could buy a special edition, an ultimate edition, and a collector’s edition.

As such, Rockstar clearly likes releasing various versions of the games with appropriate buyer incentives attached to them. Hence, we expect similar pre-order launch options for GTA 6. This means we should get a special, ultimate, and collector’s edition.

GTA 6 Speculated Pre-Order Release Date

Rockstar unveiled GTA 5 pre-orders for PS3/Xbox 360 in November 2012. There was a one-year gap between the pre-order and the release.

Since GTA 6 is also coming out two years after the December 2023 announcement, we expect GTA 6 pre-orders to start sometime in late 2024 and continue until the eventual launch. This will fit the usual GTA pre-order timeline while giving everyone enough time to prepare for the game.

Besides the pre-orders, the biggest thing we all want to know is the expected GTA 6 pricing. When GTA 5 launched for consoles, it was $59.99 and $69.99 for both editions, respectively. The pricing carried over to the PS4 and Xbox One launches. However, the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S editions were bumped to $70.

Given Rockstar’s previous trend, we expect GTA 6 to have a starting price of $69.99. The eventual special editions might get a markup of $10. So, if Rockstar Games launches a special and ultimate edition, they should sell for $79.99 and $89.99, respectively. Of course, judging how the industry keeps evolving, this price might increase.

Currently, most collector’s editions are normally priced between $210 without the game and $250+ with the game. We expect the collector’s edition to launch around $250. As such, since Rockstar Games has a history of launching GTA 5 and RDR 2 collector’s editions, we expect the price point to follow that range.
