GTA VI has become one of the most highly anticipated games, since Rockstar Games confirmed its development was in-progress via Twitter earlier this year. Recently, many leaks and rumors about the game have surfaced, and we will try our best to list every major detail.
GTA VI was officially announced by Rockstar Games in February 2022 and has been in active development since. A release date hasn’t been announced, but many speculate the game will be out by 2024, at the very least, although nothing has been confirmed by Rockstar.
Earlier this year, in mid-September, Rockstar Games suffered a massive leak, which saw a hacker share 90 videos of GTA VI’s gameplay.
Below, we have listed major details that were leaked:
GTA VI Leaks
On September 18, 2020, the world got its first look at Grand Theft Auto: VI, but many speculated upon its legitimacy. We got a look at various character animations in small files and videos, as well as various other gameplay mechanics.
The leak included more than 90 videos, which were widely assumed to be false until Jason Schreier, a Bloomberg reporter, confirmed with Rockstar Games that the leaks were of GTA VI in its early stages of development.
In the videos, we saw a character testing the environment for glitches and bugs while giving us a rough understanding of the gameplay and mechanics in GTA VI.
The next video features a more traditional Grand Theft Auto, an action-heavy police chase, and an ongoing robbery that displays cop call-outs on the screen.
Another big confirmation to have come out of the leaks was the location and setting of GTA VI. Many leaks in the past suggested the return of Vice City in GTA VI, which is said to be the Miami of the GTA Universe. The Vice City map is not as big as previous GTA V; rather, fans of the game assume it to be a smaller sandbox map with a lot of things to do.
Although the leaks were tough on Rockstar Games, they were quick to give their fans a response: “At this time, we do not anticipate any disruption to our live game services nor any long-term effect on the development of our ongoing projects.”
GTA VI Story, Plot, and Characters
While there are many images and videos taken out of context in the leaks, some files hint towards the plot and playable characters in GTA VI. The story of GTA VI is said to feature a couple, Lucia and Jason, a type of Bonnie-and-Clyde recreation, who are going to enter the story.
The plot of the game is said to revolve around the couple, as they rise in ranks in the criminal underground. It seems like a very Grand Theft Auto story and plot for GTA VI, with the characters on the run from authorities after a string of heists. The game is also said to feature the same character-switch mechanic, which was introduced in Grand Theft Auto V.
Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency
Grand Theft Auto VI has been rumored to feature a form of cryptocurrency within their game, while also seeing stock market returns. This is said to be an unlockable feature for higher-level characters, with the ability to transfer vast amounts of cryptocurrency to between players.
Grand Theft Auto VI has recently gotten a lot of attention, and it’s going to keep growing. The leaks have been one of the many ways for long-term fans of the franchise to anticipate and hope for the game to release earlier; but, until then, we will keep updating you on any upcoming GTA news.
