Rumours surrounding Grand Theft Auto 6 have been remarkably quiet as of late.
Following on from a Kotaku article published earlier this season that reported the sequel to become inactive (but early) development, the regular onslaught of hearsay and unverified leaks have since seemed to operate dry. That could be a consequence of Rockstar finally patching the obvious escape from which all of this information has been spreading, though we envision it to be a lot more probable that these claims have steadily been bringing less attention and much more scepticism. Really, fans have as much official knowledge about GTA 6 currently as several years ago and, sadly, the situation doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon.
Considering the recent affirmation from Rockstar that Grand Theft Auto V will soon be creating yet another leap between console generations (it initially launched for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, recall ) with the launching of Series X and PS5, it is looking more likely than ever that the developer is still a ways off from showing GTA 6.
It comes as a bit of a surprise, then, a new post has just surfaced Reddit claiming to have inside knowledge about the franchise’s future. Stating their roommate is a former employee of the company, MarkoTheMexicam reveals the following advice:
- Grand Theft Auto 6 is set in Vice City during an undetermined period of time.
- While they did not work right on the job, the roommate in question allegedly contributed to climate systems. Especially how they interact with the game universe and NPCs.
- A formal announcement is scheduled to be made over the following 12 months although the absence of a deadline means plans can change.
Are these some of the flimsiest promises made so far? You bet, however where this ‘escape’ differs to other people is the addition of further details about GTA Online. Should you fancy reading a short work of fiction within your lunch break, then hit the link below.
