The first character from GTA 6 has seemingly been revealed thanks to an actor’s resume that appears to confirm that the game is definitely in the works.

UPDATE – April 1 at 3:30 PM

The actor Jorge Consejo has since removed GTA 6 from his resume, suggesting that Rockstar may have told the actor to remove the listing from his website.

While many Grand Theft Auto fans continue to play GTA V and GTA Online, there are plenty who are desperate for any sort of news or teaser about GTA 6.

So much so, that after a supposed insider claimed that something was happening on March 25, parts of the GTA fanbase went into override with excitement. Unfortunately for them, however, nothing happened. Yet, it appears as if the first character for the game has been revealed right under their noses – with an actor’s resume letting information run free.

Grand Theft Auto fans have been awaiting news about GTA 6 for quite some time now.

The resume in question comes from Mexican actor Jorge Consejo who lists himself as working on a CGI role for GTA VI back in 2018. 

According to Consejo’s own listing, he plays a character known only as The Mexican – without a full name, location, or any other sort of detail being listed as additional information. Yet, seeing as the role was played back in 2018, it appears as if GTA 6 is actually in development.

Consejo’s resume lists GTA 6 as being in the works.

Some parts of the rabid Grand Theft Auto fanbase seemingly uncovered the information back in 2019, as the actor playfully acknowledged a tweet about his involvement with the game. 

He followed that up on March 27, noting that “because of contract stipulations sometimes I’m unable to comment on certain projects,” which would suggest that he is under a non-disclosure agreement for his work. 

Though, as he can’t comment on it, it’s hard to confirm as to whether or not he’s actually talking about GTA 6 or any other projects he has in the works – even though the timing would suggest he is talking about Grand Theft Auto.

While there is still no confirmation from Rockstar themselves that the game is in development, it appears clear that it is thanks to Consejo. 

All that is left now is to wait for the confirmation about the name of the game, location, story, and a release date – though some have claimed that will all come before the end of March. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
