It seems like Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) will skip last generation consoles; PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will directly launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC platforms.
While it is highly likely that most gamers would have upgraded to the new-gen consoles by the game’s expected release window if it lands on new-gen hardware, still there would be many who wouldn’t be able to do so and play the game at launch.
Grand Theft Auto 6 Might Exclude Millions of Players

But if these reports are to be true, the players who wouldn’t be able to afford or switch to new-gen consoles for other reasons will be excluded from enjoying the game.
Also, gamers on current-gen consoles wouldn’t be much happy either if they got to that the game will be released on last-gen consoles as well making their shift to PS5, Xbox Series X|S worthless to some extent. It’s been two years since these consoles hit the market and still, gamers have not fully transitioned to them.
