GTA 6 Weather Dynamics and NPC Behavior

@GTAVIGosssip's post, featuring the contentious screenshot, has sparked discussions, particularly regarding the speculated duration of 1 to 40 hours for "J&L." Initially thought to pertain to the game's story mode length, there's now speculation that it might relate to bug and glitch testing instead.

Nevertheless, caution prevails, as there remains a possibility that the leaked image may not pertain to GTA 6 at all, adding a layer of uncertainty to the discussion. With every leak comes the possibility of misinformation, and this instance is no exception. The blurry nature of the screenshot leaves room for doubt, raising questions about its authenticity and relevance to GTA 6. Although, with the title slated for release on current-gen consoles next year, anticipation mounts for official announcements from Rockstar Games in the lead-up to the much-anticipated GTA 6 launch.
