Grand Theft Auto voice actors tease fans over GTA 6 rumors

Grand Theft Auto 6 might well be one of the most highly anticipated games in history, despite not even being confirmed to be in development, and now even the game’s voice actors are trolling players about it. 

Fans of the franchise have had to wait longer than ever before for a new installment, as GTA 5 was released back in September 2013 on the previous generation of consoles, with many members of the game’s online community left with nothing else to do but snoop around for clues for the next game.

Despite numerous apparent leaks claiming to have revealed the destination of a new map, characters and more, there’s still no official announcement been made by Rockstar Games.

In terms of official voices, though, some have been chiming in loud and clear on social media.

Nobody really knows when GTA 6 will be released, but that hasn’t stopped fans trying to find out.

Voice actors of both Franklin Clinton and Michael De Santa have been interacting on Instagram, starting with a post of the former – played by Shawn Fonteno – who uploaded an image of himself in a motion capture suit on January 24.

“Y’all don’t start with these GTA rumors, it’s FBF,” he said, which prompted a response from Ned Luke, who plays the part of Michael in GTA 5.

Luke said: “GTA VI confirmed. Story DLC confirmed. Jet pack confirmed. VI map set on moon confirmed,” followed by a series of star emojis and a shrug.

Voice actors for Michael and Franklin appear to be revelling in the lack of GTA 6 news.

While these posts don’t make anything obvious in terms of GTA 6’s development, it certainly shows that people that have worked with Rockstar in the past are recognizing the hunger from the community for the first look at a new game, and have started to troll them about it.

Without a shadow of a doubt, if everything Luke said in that post was real and GTA 6 was confirmed, with the return of a jetpack, DLC content and more fans would be delighted. But, there’s been no suggestion from developers that we’re any closer to news of that sort any time soon.

Until we get an official announcement, the rumor mill will keep turning, and people will probably continue to troll players too.

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.
