It is nearing six years since the last entry in the world-renowned Grand Theft Auto franchise was released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Any new shred of information on a new entry sets the internet ablaze with rumors and speculation as the hotly anticipated title has been kept discreetly under wraps.
In a September 11 Reddit post that was quickly deleted - along with the account that created it - some new screenshots were shared, showcasing what is allegedly GTA 6.
While the internet is quick to jump on any new scrap of information regarding the latest from video game industry titans, Rockstar Games, it is worth bearing in mind that although the screenshots below may seem authentic, do take them with a grain of salt.
The first of the supposedly leaked images highlights a character model from behind. Donning a pair of sunglasses and walking through what appears to be a cityscape, the picture reveals very little about the setting or period of the next GTA game.
In a second post, we see a shot of a cop car in the rain. This one is even more difficult to make out but if real, one can assume the image comes from an in-game cinematic or potentially an upcoming teaser trailer.
Finally, the leaks end with a proper gameplay screenshot. On an airport runway, the image gives us a glimpse at the mini-map as well as a presumably controllable jet aircraft
While the Reddit post was quickly removed, there’s no telling as to just how credible these images might be. Countless leaks have been shut down over the past few months, though that’s not to say that leaks haven’t been accurate in the past.
Rockstar Games often keep their cards close to their chest, releasing trailers and gameplay snippets when they feel ready. But that won’t stop hungry fans from scouring the web for any new information they can get their hands on.
Just recently we saw Rockstar North remove their Red Dead Redemption 2 mural, leading fans to believe that a GTA 6 announcement was drawing near.
It’s only a matter of time before we get official confirmation on the release of GTA 6, until then however, keep an eye on out as we update our tracker with all the latest information.
