GTA 6 leaker claims we may see trailer sooner than expected
Rockstar Games could be set to release their first-ever Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer in the near future, if apparently leaked information is to be believed.
The game developers are typically secretive about handing out updates for upcoming games and that trend hasn’t ended for GTA 6, which is still yet to be confirmed despite multiple job openings hinting at the project being in development.
Numerous people have claimed to have inside scoops on upcoming details for the unconfirmed game, though, with some claiming Vice City could return in the next installment, and others suggesting South America could be our next destination.
While none of this was mentioned in a new leak, the developers appear to be preparing a promotional video for something and fans are getting their hopes up, as you would expect.
Reddit user Lissenhereyadonkey hasn’t claimed to know anything about in-game details, as others have in recent months, although they have said that somebody close to them working in the music licensing industry has tipped them off about Rockstar’s latest dealings.
They posted: “A person I trust that is involved in clearing the licensing for music used in movie, and sometimes video game trailers, informed me this afternoon that her company had to get a rap song cleared called Black Locks by the rapper Young Dolph for Rockstar Games.
“Only the instrumental is being used as far as I know. From her understanding, companies only reach out to her for clearance less than a month before the release of the trailer to the public so I imagine we will finally get to see the new game.”

The song in question, as seen below, was released in July 2019 and the Reddit user’s apparent source states that just the instrumental has been requested so far by the developers.
Not many Reddit users questioned the credibility of the source after hearing the record, although they did suggest other things the music may be used for.
One posted: “The song sounds like it would fit GTA Online more,” while another said: “Probably gonna be used for the F1 racing update trailer for GTA Online.”
It’s unclear as to whether or not this will be the music used in any future Rockstar Games, never mind for GTA 6, but it does show that fans are doing everything they can to collect any clues they can find for future announcements.
As of the time of writing, GTA Online has only released 0ne Formula 1 car via Lucky Wheel reward drops in the Diamond Casino. There is a possibility that the music here could be used for a future event trailer for GTA 5, although nothing has been confirmed on that front so far.
