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)

GTA 6 leak: We've been reporting about the various aspects of Grand Theft Auto 6 or GTA 6 for several weeks now. Rockstar's next big game has got fans hyped up, more so, especially after the big leak in February last year. Having already gotten a glimpse at its gameplay, we cannot wait to what Rockstar offers in this highly anticipated sequel to GTA 5. While GTA 6 is rumoured to feature some truly next-generation mechanics that haven't been seen in a video game before, it might also borrow some features from Red Dead Redemption 2, another astonishing Rockstar game that has wowed fans with its gameplay, mechanics, characters, storyline, and the open-world depiction of the Wild West.

So, check out the features that GTA 6 could borrow from Red Dead Redemption 2.

GTA 6 leak

One of the most promising GTA 6 leaks is about the characters. It has been rumoured that the game might feature two playable characters - Jason and Lucia, who have a Bonnie & Clyde relationship. Both of them are tipped to carry loot bags to store cash, gold, and consumables. This is similar to the satchel that the protagonist, Arthur Morgan, carries in Red Dead Redemption 2 which is used to keep money, all the loot, consumables, potions, and more.

Another feature from Red Dead Redemption 2 that could make its way to GTA 6 might be a witness and police recognition system. In Red Dead Redemption 2, Arthur Morgan can wear a mask to hide his face while committing a crime. If done so, the police do not have his description and search for an unknown suspect. However, if you do not wear a mask, then they have a full description of your character.

Similarly in the Hank's Waffles robbery video in GTA 6, 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.

Another way of earning money in GTA 6 could be through fences. 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.

Do note that all the information is based on unofficial reports and should be taken with a pinch of salt. Only Rockstar Games might be able to tell us what GTA 6 might look like but until then, all we can do is speculate and wait.
