A renowned Grand Theft Auto leaker has claimed that GTA 6 could actually be much closer than previous reports suggest – saying that they’ve heard that the game is “halfway done.”

Rumors have been rife for months now around GTA 6 – where it will be based, the characters that might be involved and how far along in development the game actually is.

On April 14, it was reported in a number of emails and interviews from Rockstar employees that GTA 6 is currently in “early development,” but some have doubted this.

Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a huge hit with fans – but that doesn’t make them any less excited for GTA 6.

Tez2, a well-known and reliable GTA leaker, has questioned the reports and suggestions that the game is still in “early development.”

“It’s hard to believe that when I’m hearing it’s “halfway done” or even beyond that,” he said in a tweet on April 16.

He then compared it to Rockstar’s other uber-popular title, Red Dead Redemption, saying that the second installment in the series took 7 or 8 years and that main production started as soon as RDR1 was complete – adding that we should “expect the same with the next title.”

Tez2’s final point was that maybe by “early” they mean it’s still nowhere close to being released, which is apparently “much more believable.”

Recent rumors suggest the new game could be available in “late 2020 or early 2021,” while other financial projections expect a release date of 2021-22 – meaning we could still be two or more years away from getting our hands on Rockstar’s next effort.

Regardless of when the game is due to come out, there are clearly conflicting expectations of how far along in the development process GTA 6 is, so we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement from Rockstar themselves for any confirmation.

GTA 6 fans believe Super Bowl 55 could have a reveal after Vice City teasers

Grand Theft Auto fans are hopeful that Super Bowl 55 could have some answers about GTA 6, given that Super Bowl 54 seemingly had teasers a year ago. 

Despite complete silence from Rockstar Games, there is no bigger question in gaming right now than ‘when will we finally get our hands on GTA 6?’

There has been all manner of rumors, leaks, and teasers in the last few years, with players digging through Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption, and even Rockstar Games’ trademarks for possible clues.

All signs have pointed towards a return to Vice City after last year, at Super Bowl 54, a number of the television crews broadcasting the game used Vice City graphics and references. Now, with Super Bowl 55 on the horizon, GTA fans are hoping for more of the same.

There have been plenty of rumors about GTA 6, but nothing official yet.

With Super Bowl 54, it was a little easier to make the Vice City references, given that the game was played in Miami – the city that the iconic GTA location is based on.

In the case of Super Bowl 55, though, players are hoping that, because The Weeknd is performing at the Half Time show on February 7, there might be more clues – given that there have been rumors he’s been working with Rockstar

“I could see a 15-30 second commercial of a car starting up or a cinematic shot of whatever city the game takes place in followed by the Rockstar and GTA VI Logo being a VERY SLIGHT possibility,” said Redditor ItsTreDay, noting that a game announcement would be enough – nevermind gameplay or anything else.

Others quickly agreed. “They couldn’t ask for a better announcement opportunity,” said one fan. “Fingers crossed. Wish we get some info from them. Even if it was just a logo,” added another.

However, some aren’t convinced, questioning why Rockstar would need to spend money on advertising at the Super Bowl. In recent years, 30-second ad spots at the Super Bowl have commanded around $5.6 million.

Rockstar knows how much hype there is about GTA 6, and whenever they decide to tease it, or start to roll out a reveal, it’s going to get serious attention anyway. But, we’ll just have to wait and see – they could switch things up for once.
