Rockstar Asks Employees To Return To Office Full-Time In Preparation For GTA 6

It felt like the day would never come, but Rockstar Games finally confirmed late last year that GTA 6 would be arriving in 2025, and apparently the company thinks its employees should be working full time in the office ahead of release.

This is according to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier, who says he's seen an email to staff asking them to return to the office five days per-week as of April. Presumably, some of them have had a hybrid schedule up until this point.

Here's what Rockstar Head of Publishing Jenn Kolbe reportedly said in her email to staff:

"Making these changes now puts us in the best position to deliver the next Grand Theft Auto at the level of quality and polish we know it requires, along with a publishing roadmap that matches the scale and ambition of the game."

Jason also mentions that "employees are not thrilled" at this prospect, although he hasn't elaborated on this further.

There's no projected release window for GTA 6 beyond "2025" yet, so we could be looking at anywhere from the early part of the year to the last couple of months. We're guessing it'll land somewhere between September and November (assuming it doesn't get delayed to 2026) - and it'll be interesting to see if it can live up to the immense hype.
