Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is definitely one of the most played games on this planet. The game is loved by anyone who knows how to play it. Even the people who are bad at games love GTA. 

And there really isn’t any other game on any platform that can actually replace the joy of this open-world game.

From the first-ever GTA being released in 1997 to the latest GTA V, it truly is a masterpiece in terms of a game.

Over the past few years, there has been a buzz regarding the launch of GTA 6 but no official date has been made and gamers across the world are now eyeing some other alternative to the game. 

While it is known that GTA VI will be based on a real city just like the other GTA games, it is not yet known which city it would be. 

Recently, Rockstar Games said that it ‘suffered a network intrusion’ resulting in a massive leak of 90 GTA VI videos.

The videos had their engine, gameplay and more from an early development build.

The GTA VI is also expected to be set in a city similar to Vice City but not exactly clear which city it will be based on.

The game will also have the series’ first female protagonist.

However, the game is expected to be launched in Mid-2024 and till then, you may play a few other similar games to kill the time.

While some are looking for a similar game that may be able to run on some low-end PCs.

Here is a list of the best GTA alternatives to play while you wait for the sixth version of the game.
