It’s time to pick up a salt cellar again, because the rumor mill around GTA 6 is running at full speed. Where we spotted the alleged release date of the follow-up to GTA 5 earlier this week, it is now again hit. At least, that is what an anonymous claims leaker.
That’s tricky with anonymous sources. They have no reputation, you can’t control them: all you have is the information they leak. We can only check in substance whether what the person claims is credible. Sometimes such huge promises for GTA 6 are leaked that you immediately realize that it is pure fantasy of fans.
Red Dead Redemption 2
A new anonymous leaker on Reddit confirms some previous rumors and shares more interesting news. For example, it seems strongly that Rockstart Games has happily listened to the feedback on Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2).
That was a wonderful game, full of game, compelling storylines and things to do. But the pace was very slow, especially at the beginning. Fans of the Grand Theft Auto franchise praise the games for the feeling of freedom, the open world. After RDR2, many fans were afraid that Rockstar would also pour the successor to GTA 6 in a more realistic and slower sauce.
Impact on GTA 6
Take this news with a good grain of salt, but according to a new one leaker this is certainly not the case. In fact, a user named u / LoremIpsumLoremIpsu on Reddit claims that Rockstar just re-addressed large parts of GTA 6 after fans’ feedback on Red Dead.
He claims, among other things, that the game was about sixty to seventy percent complete before those changes, and that Rockstar plans to release GTA 6 between October 2021 and February 2022. That matches the rumor from earlier this week. It remains to be seen whether that will succeed.
Rockstar Games, if we have to believe this information, plans to really build a game for the next decade. GTA Online is still a mega success, but was basically not built with later expansions in mind. At GTA 6, the studio does have that prior knowledge, and can lay the foundation for a game that can be expanded for many years to come.
More details and a grain of salt
You can check out the other details shared by the anonymous user below, but don’t take them too seriously. Anyone can come up with this kind of obvious information, especially with an anonymous account. Until we hear more from Rockstar Games, the game remains a big mystery for the time being. Only then do you know whether this type of leaked information appears to be correct.
