Grand Theft Auto fans have amassed in order to attempt to guess the GTA 6 release date.
For years now GTA fans have been patiently awaiting the release of the next game, even years after the original 2013 release date for GTA 5. Now, almost 8 years later, fans are as eager as ever to see the release of the new game.
We had rumors previously that we could see a trailer at the upcoming Superbowl, and now fans have amassed – through what we can only assume to be sheer boredom – to guess what year the game will release.
In a Reddit post by user “llSuperNova6ll” fans did just that in the form of a poll, which offered users to pick between 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, or “2025 or later.” The votes were in favor of 2022, which isn’t surprising with the lack of communication from Rockstar so far. However, the year 2021 is still young, which leaves some time for this year.
Unsurprisingly, 2021 came in second place, either due to wishful thinking or some fans’ heavy belief that this will in fact be the year for the next GTA title. Considering the current world circumstances, it would be no surprise that Rockstar would be open to releasing a new title in 2021, during a time where most customers are working from home.
Third place was 2023, with a Redditor commenting that GTA 5 was announced in 2011 and released in 2013, so who’s to say it won’t happen again. He also mentioned Rockstar likes 5-year gaps in between games, so this would line up with the 2018 release of Red Dead Redemption 2.
For Fourth & Fifth place we have 2024 and “2025 or later.” We think 2024 is a bit of a stretch, even for Rockstar games. We don’t think Rockstar wants to be the next Cyberpunk 2077 with their wait times, so 2025 and later is off the table for us as well.
Hopefully, we see some communication regarding GTA 6 soon. We’ll update if we get any intel. Be sure to tell us your guess for the GTA 6 release date on Twitter, @CharlieIntel.
GTA Online Prize Ride January 20 vehicle: How to get Calico GTF for free
Thanks to the GTA Online Los Santos Tuners update, players can earn a weekly Prize Ride vehicle, and here’s how to get one, and what it is.
The Los Santos Tuners update introduced the LS Car Meet, and this week players can get the Karin Calico GTF free as the GTA Online’s Prize Ride January 20 vehicle.
While players are enjoying The Contract update, the Los Santos Tuners update was certainly up there with the Cayo Perico update in terms of an important content drop for GTA Online. Many players love to earn lots of money, buy amazing, fast cars, mod them how they see fit, and parade them around the city.
As well as adding new cars and collectibles, the update also welcomed a fun new challenge for players to complete. GTA Online’s Prize Ride can be obtained by meeting a certain requirement, and we’ll detail everything below.
How to unlock GTA Online’s free Calico GTF Los Santos Tuners Prize Ride
To get the Calico GTF, you’ll need to win a Pursuit Race every day for five days in a row to complete the Prize Ride challenge.
Each week, players can unlock a new vehicle for free at the LS Car Meet. From January 20, players will be able to get their hands on this awesome car, but only until January 27, 2022.
That’s the simple condition you will need to meet to win the car for yourself. Given that it normally costs $1,995,000, it’s definitely worth trying to get!

Here’s Rockstar’s official description of the Calico GTF:
“Ah, the 90’s. Out of a chaotic fusion of grunge, dial-up, and third-wave feminism came the Karin Calico GTF, a car that took a little bit of everything and made something new: muscle heritage, rally chops, street racer cred. Looks like it’s time to drop the sticky VHS and curtain your hair, homeskillet: you’ve got some homework to do.”
With GTA 6 rumored to be in development hell, the GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition out and not doing well, and the GTA V Enhanced and Expanded Remaster nearly here, the franchise has a lot on its plate.
Also, check out the claim that Rockstar support “ignores” cheaters, and stay tuned for the January 27 Prize Ride vehicle when it releases!

GTA Online January 20 patch notes: New I-Wagen, Drift Tampa podium vehicle
The January 20 GTA Online patch notes adds the new I-Wagen SUV, plus the Drift Tampa as a free reward from the podium.
A new week means a new GTA Online update, and January 20’s patch has added another new vehicle in the I-Wagen, offers the Drift Tampa as the new podium reward vehicle, and has major discounts and bonuses.
2022 is kicking off with a bang, with GTA Online offering players plenty of free content after the huge Contract DLC update.
The series as a whole is in an interesting place right now as the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S re-release is due in early 2022, GTA 6 is apparently stuck in development hell, and the GTA Trilogy has had a tough time with players lamenting countless glitches that have made the game the lowest-rated Metacritic title ever.
However, one element of the franchise that remains steadfast is GTA Online as Rockstar keeps pumping it full of changes and content to maintain its status as an absolute moneymaking success for the Grand Theft Auto franchise.
- New Obey I-Wagen
- Diamond Casino & Resort Lucky Wheel reward vehicle
- 2x GTA$ & RP
- GTA Online weekly discounts

The SUV’s official description reads: “It’s time to look to the future, but you need to take things slow. World Peace? No thanks. Universal healthcare? Gtfo. An SUV that’s all-electric? Alright. It’s a start. The forward-thinking Obey I-Wagen: there’s an inch of ozone with your name on it.”
Drift Tampa Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward
The grand prize at the Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel this week is the Declasse Drift Tampa, a wide-body drifting version of the regular Tampa. First added as part of the Cunning Stunts update, this car will have you sliding around Los Santos.

GTA players beg Rockstar to finally fix “cardboard” body armor
GTA Online players are calling for the developers to make some major changes to the game’s ‘cardboard’ body armor.
GTA Online players are frustrated with the state of body armor in the game, criticizing it for being like “cardboard” and are calling for the developers to make some major changes.
GTA Online features a plethora of different activities for you to try out. You can even battle other players with a wide selection of powerful weapons. However, your opponents can also use these guns to take you out.
One way of defending yourself is purchasing body armor to lessen the damage done to you by bullets. While this sounds ideal, players have complained that this item doesn’t offer much protection.
Reddit user ‘codmike86’ made a post criticizing the body armor in the GTA Online subreddit. Their main complaint was that the item is “as tough as cardboard” when this game is almost a decade old.

“There’s no point in wearing body armor at all if it takes is 3 bullets,” wrote the Redditor. “Can’t even stack the light armor when purchasing it.” Many other players shared this sentiment in the comments.
“The thing that annoys me is that fall damage or getting hit by vehicles eats the armor bar because it makes no sense,” commented one frustrated user. “I only use it before gunfights now.”
Now, players are calling for Rockstar Games to make some major changes to the in-game body armor. They want the item to be able to endure more gunfire, making it worth the purchase.
Some users jokingly stated that the NPCs are more resistant against gunfire than body armor. “I want the nanolaminate energy-shielded binco shirts the NPCs all have that allow them to inhale 15-20 bullets to the chest,” one commenter sarcastically stated.

At the time of writing, Rockstar Games haven’t announced any upcoming changes to the body armor in GTA Online. So, players will need to take cover in order to avoid taking too much damage.
