GTA 6 details leaked by source who correctly predicted PS5

After years of speculation, we may finally have some credible GTA 6 information. A leaker who correctly predicted the PS5 specs has also revealed some Grand Theft Auto 6 information.

GTA 6 release date

Estimates had ranged from 2019 to 2022 for an eventual GTA 6 release. Of course, we can almost certainly rule out 2019 now, but this leaker has stated that Grand Theft Auto 6 will probably release in late 2020.

If true, this is a huge revelation meaning possibly one of the biggest releases in gaming history is less than two years away.

The terminology used, “GTA 6 Holiday 2020 most probably” suggests the leaker doesn’t have any concrete information. However, it does at least confirm its existence. While this was a certainty given the incredible success of GTA 5, it is good to finally have it acknowledged from a somewhat credible source.

The date does seem a little early considering how quiet Rockstar have been. With that said, a holiday 2020 release date would line up nicely with the PS5. It would be a very astute business decision to release the PS5 and GTA 6 close together.

Will GTA 6 be the biggest release in video game history?

PS5, not PS4

Additionally the leaker states they are “not hearing anything PS4 related”. This can be interpreted as both good and bad news depending on whether you will be getting a PS5.

A release purely on next generation consoles will allow developers to maximize the game and hardware’s potential. However, it will disappoint some of the 90 million PS4 users who aren’t intending to upgrade to a PS5 once it’s released.

PlayStation 5 exclusivity

Perhaps the biggest revelation from the leak, at least in terms of surprise, is that Sony are trying to get a period of GTA 6 exclusivity.

Unsurprisingly, obtaining this would be very costly for Sony with the leaker stating, “hearing that Sony is paying huge money to secure 1 month time exclusive for PS5.”

If true, and Sony are successful in obtaining the exclusivity period, this would send seismic waves through the gaming industry. It would give the PS5 an even bigger advantage than it is expected to have already.

Grand Theft Auto 6 location

The most speculated upon element of GTA 6 is where the game will be based. New York, Miami, another California based game, or even London, have been rumored.

The leaker states they have been hearing rumors that it’ll be based in Miami and New York. It is interesting that “and” is used here suggesting the game will have two primary locations.

The leaker does caveat this particular bit of information saying, “I’m not sure if thats 100% true.”

Believable leak?

It does seem strange that an apparently random person can have so much information regarding GTA 6. The only secret Rockstar don’t keep is that their intellectual property is highly secured and that leaks rarely come out.

However, given this leaker was able to accurately predict the PS5 specs and be correct on a host of other PS5 related information, it is certainly worth absorbing this leak.

The leak gained further credit on April 18, when a former Rockstar employee had listed GTA 6 work on their resume. Specifically, the Junior Vehicle Artist stated, “Create concept vehicles matching with real world for GTA 5 DLC and upcoming GTA 6.”

This by no means proves GTA 6’s existence as the resume could be fake. It does add further credence to this leak, however.

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
