Fresh off several GTA 6 announcements proving to be a hoax, the voice actor for Michael in Grand Theft Auto 5 gave advice to fans about “clickbait” leaks and rumors for the upcoming Rockstar title.

It’s been over six and half years since Rockstar has released a title for the wildly popular action-adventure franchise, so understandably many are desperate for any information they can get on the series’ next game.

However after a recent fake announcement trailer tricked players into believing a reveal was imminent, Michael’s voice actor Ned Luke spoke out on leaks and rumors in a live chat with Grand Theft Auto V co-star Shawn Fonteno, who portrayed Franklin.

The two actors sat down for a live chat on Instagram, where they discussed the recent flood of supposed leaks and rumors about the upcoming GTA title.

“They said GTA 6 is gonna be made in Vice City. How do these people get all this information of what’s going to be what?” Luke exclaimed. He then turned towards the fans and said, “People do you not understand? DO NOT BELIEVE IN ANYTHING that you see on the internet!”

Hitting out at Grand Theft Auto YouTuber MrBossFTW, he continued, “BossmanF**kTheWorld or whatever his name is, or any of those guys, don’t listen to those guys. They have no inside information, they’re just clickbait. And if you hear it from Rockstar, then you know. If you don’t hear it from Rockstar, you don’t know s**t.”

When a viewer brought up the idea of Michael being in the next installment, Fonteno reacted, saying, “Michael might be in GTA 6? I don’t know. S**t, I hope!” The actor then exclaimed that he would have multiple protagonists return, if he could.

“If it was in my control, it would be Michael, Franklin, Trevor, CJ, Lamar, Lester, you name it. Everybody would be in there man!” he said.

Luke agreed with his co-star and replied, “That would actually be really cool, just the playable characters from the other ones were somehow in there. Luis Lopez and Gay Tony, Niko and all of those guys. That would be really cool.”

This isn’t the first time the two voice actors have called out rumors. In late January, both took to social media to mock leaks about the future title. “GTA VI confirmed. Jetpack confirmed. VI map set on the moon confirmed,” they joked.

While many have speculated that the next game will take place in Vice City, so far nothing has proven to be true – showing that they may just be right that we won’t know anything until Rockstar themselves are ready to talk.

Rockstar Games have finally revealed official details on the next GTA Online heist, which we now know will be called Cayo Perico – a new map expansion. 

The game’s developers surprised the world on November 19 with a first look teaser trailer, and the following day confirmed the name of the next mission and its release date.

It’s expected to be rolled out on December 15, according to Rockstar.

A new trailer dropped for the mega update as well, posted to the developer’s official YouTube channel.

That’s not all, either. In an official blog post they confirmed a whole host of new details, found below.

It says: “Prepare to infiltrate the remote island compound of the world’s most notorious drug dealer in Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition yet: The Cayo Perico Heist.

“It’s up to you to find a way to breach Cayo Perico, one of the most secure private islands in the entire world, evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry.

“Choose your tools. Choose your approach. Choose your crew – or even go it entirely alone. Just make it back to Los Santos in one piece.

Here’s one shot of the new location.

“The Cayo Perico Heist is the biggest GTA Online adventure ever, introducing an all-new exotic Heist location, with a brand-new approach to Heist design that features the ability to play everything solo or with up to three other players. Plus you can acquire new vehicles and tactical weapons, experience new social spaces to dance and party in with your friends, and new world-class guest DJs, and listen to new radio stations with over 100 new songs. Oh, and a very large, very versatile, and very heavily armed submarine HQ with plenty of other surprises.”

With the game’s next content refresh on the horizon, it remains to be seen how we’ll get to this new mystery location. Though clearly, the information we have points towards the use of a submarine – not to mention one flashing across our screens in the trailer.

The GTA Online Cayo Perico heist arrives on December 15.
