Excitement builds as GTA 6 announcement speculation grows
1/6 The gaming world is buzzing with anticipation as a new theory regarding the announcement of GTA 6 has surfaced online. While it's important to approach this with caution, it's hard not to be intrigued by the intriguing method used by a dedicated fan to make their prediction. (
2/6 On September 30, 2023, a Twitter user, formerly known as @GTAVInewz, shared a fascinating image that offered insight into what they believe could be the announcement date for the next instalment in the Grand Theft Auto series by Rockstar Games. According to their theory, we might hear about the game on October 3, 2023. (Pexels)
3/6 The foundation of this theory was laid on September 29, 2023, when Rockstar Games posted an image featuring two GTA Online characters standing in front of the iconic Vinewood sign, with the moon looming in the background. The fan account posited that the studio intentionally incorporated the "VI" sign (possibly hinting at GTA 6) and the moon as a teaser for the impending announcement. (GTA)
4/6 What makes this theory even more fascinating is its connection to the phase of the moon shown in the image, which, according to the theory, will align with October 3, 2023, in the real world. Additionally, the theory suggested that "VI" could stand for Vice City, a location beloved by GTA fans. (@RockstarGames)
5/6 To add a sprinkle of intrigue, the user delved into the announcement and release dates of some of Rockstar's previous game titles: 1. Red Dead Redemption 2 release date: October 26, 2018; Red Dead Redemption 2 announcement date: October 18, 2016, Grand Theft Auto 5 release date: September 17, 2013; Grand Theft Auto 5 announcement date: October 25, 2011; Red Dead Redemption release date: May 18, 2010; Red Dead Redemption announcement date: February 3, 2009; Grand Theft Auto 4 release date: April 29, 2008 (REUTERS)
6/6 Interestingly, all of these dates fell on a Tuesday. Building on this pattern, the user concluded that Rockstar might unveil the next GTA game on an upcoming Tuesday. While this theory has sparked enthusiasm within the gaming community, it's important to remember that it remains speculative, and many are approaching it with a healthy dose of scepticism. The mystery surrounding GTA 6's announcement continues to captivate fans as they eagerly await any official word from Rockstar Games. (Rockstar Games)

Over the last few weeks, we've covered various aspects of Grand Theft Auto 6 or GTA 6, Rockstar's next big game and the sequel to massively popular GTA 5. Courtesy of the big leak that took place last year, we now know that GTA 6 might have two playable protagonists - Jason and Lucia. The game might also feature a new cover and stealth mechanics, as well as an RDR2-like health and eagle eye system. Today, we take a deep dive into the new gameplay systems of GTA 6.

GTA 6 leak: All the new gameplay systems

Earning money through white-collar crime could be possible in GTA 6. As per the leaked gameplay videos, GTA 6 would have purchasable properties as well as businesses that could be used for money laundering. A washing machine symbol with a ‘$' sign was noticed at the car wash property in Hank's Waffles video. Therefore, players might be able to buy properties with the sole purpose of money laundering in the game.

Like Red Dead Redemption 2, GTA 6 might also feature fences. But instead of fencing horses and carriages, players might be able to fence vehicles as well art.

GTA 6 might also borrow a couple of hacking-related features from Watch Dogs, Ubisoft's own open-world take on the Grand Theft Auto series. A leak by Tom Henderson revealed that the female protagonist Lucia carries devices such as Tracker Jammer, Immobilizer Bypass, USB Drive, and Auto Dialer which might help hack vehicles.

Talking about vehicles, GTA 6 might allow players to discover vehicles too. The game might have a vehicle compendium as evident by a leaked video where Jason gets into a Maibatsu Sanchez and the text on the bottom right says the player has found a new livery for it.

If you're cash-strapped, robberies could be an easy way to earn quick money in GTA 6 as the two characters are tipped to have a Bonnie and Clyde relationship. As per the leaks, players would also be able to give commands to the other character during the robbery, such as telling them to surrender or to hold out. Moreover, both characters would reportedly also carry ‘loot bags' for stashing robbed cash, and gold. There might also be a sharing system as well where both characters share items such as food, ammo, other consumables and even weapons.

Another feature from Red Dead Redemption 2 that could make its way to GTA 6 might be a witness and police recognition system. In the Hank's Waffles robbery video, the text below the wanted level reads ‘Full description' meaning that the police have a full description of the character. Once the character enters a police vehicle, the status changes from no vehicle description to full vehicle description.

Do note that all the information is based on leaks and rumours, and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
