The theories surrounding the dates on certain doors around the Los Santos Airport has been brought up by GTA Online players again. But, are they really hinting at GTA 6’s potential launch date? 

Even though Rockstar Games haven’t given any indication about GTA 6 coming soon, that hasn’t stopped Grand Theft Auto fans searching high and low for potential clues.


Out of the game, players have found retailers who have supposed release dates listed, while in-game, they’re linking all sorts of hints to GTA 6. The biggest, outside of the Casino heist referencing dates, comes in the way of the doors at the Los Santos airport.

There are a collection of these security doors that have dates on. A few say 2013 – which is when GTA V was released – but others points to the future.

Rockstar love leaving hints around GTA’s airports.

It’s not too far into the future, however. Head to the security gate on the right side of the airport, drive on through and follow the painted road until you see two sets of spiral stairs. There, under the second set of stairs are some doors.

Six of these all have 2021 stamped across them. Nothing else, no hint at a month or even a particular day, but just the year 2021. Others, as we’ve already noted, point to 2013. 

Of course, these numbers could very well just be random and link to quite literally anything, but some fans are certain that they are related to GTA 6 rather than say an expansion for GTA V or even a new title like Bully 2.

Six doors with 2021 have got fan theories running wild.

Rockstar has, in the past, dropped small hints like this into GTA games before the next one is released. Back in GTA IV, there were adverts around Liberty City airport for flights to Los Santos.

However, the iconic devs haven’t given any hint at GTA 6 yet and are working on adding new content to GTA Online with two new updates. So, we’ll just have to wait and see if this theory ends up being correct or not.


Rockstar accused of censoring GTA 6 discussion amid map leaks

Rockstar Games appears to be clamping down on GTA 6 discussion on social media after users claimed to have noticed their comments being censored on YouTube.

The news of the alleged censorship comes right as leaks supposedly revealing Vice City as the setting for the next installment in the franchise.


On Reddit, user TypicalPoetry22 voiced their frustration over the censorship with images showing how their comment about Grand Theft Auto 6 was removed from YouTube.

“So, like every time I watch the newly uploaded YouTube video from Rockstar Games. And like every time I also look at the comments,” they said, commenting that they spotted something suspicious. “There I noticed that I haven’t seen a single comment about GTA 6.”

Could this leak be related to GTA 6?

According to TypicalPoetry22, they wrote a comment about GTA 6 and then opened their browser in incognito mode only to see that it wasn’t visible. “So, Rockstar Games has blacklisted ‘GTA 6’ on YouTube.”

In the attached images, you can see a screenshot of a comment that reads “GTA 6 when” and then another with the remark nowhere to be seen. However, “GTA VI” seems to still be allowed.

It’s unclear when Rockstar started implementing this filter – if they have at all – but its discovery comes as an older map leak for Grand Theft Auto 6 resurfaced after one eerily similar found its way onto the internet.

Rockstar is accused of removing comments with “GTA 6” in them.

As Dexerto previously reported, the original leak seems to have emerged from someone with significant insider information as there is evidence suggesting they worked at Take-Two Interactive.

It is always possible that Rockstar is trying to prevent the spread of the map leaks on its own YouTube videos, but it could also just be the company trying to remove the influx of people commenting about a game that isn’t even announced yet.

Nonetheless, it’s a bit strange for Rockstar to be removing comments – if this is the case. Only time will tell when they finally decide to reveal the long-awaited sixth installment in the series.
