An apparent Grand Theft Auto leaker has hinted at the possibility of there being an announcement for GTA 6 coming in the near future.

Ever since Rockstar followed up the release of GTA V with Red Dead Redemption 2, fans of the uber-popular Grand Theft Auto franchise have been awaiting a new game – GTA VI, to be exact.

There has been plenty of speculation about what could be set to come in the next installment of the GTA series – with rumors of a game spanning decades, different countries, and even different parts of already much-loved Grand Theft Auto locations. However, with Rockstar keeping supremely silent, no one is quite sure what is coming next.

GTA fans are hoping that Grand Theft Auto 6 will be revealed sooner rather than any later.

Yet, speculation has been growing surrounding a possible announcement in the near future. The first instance of this was uncovered by YouTuber MrBossFTW when another apparent insider claimed that March 25 was a day to look out for. Yet, fans have uncovered more.

An apparent Rockstar leaker on the GTAForums, known as ‘gonnaenodaethat’ has been dropping cryptic hints with posts in different threads and private messages. The poster, who supposedly has a track record for insider information – including teasing details about the RDR2 trailer before it was released – has been dropping speculation about the new game, including references to possible drug dealing in-game.

The account also posted a direct message to another poster telling them that they were “closer than you think,” which was immediately grasped on to as further fuel to the fire than an announcement could be set for the near future.

Of course, at the minute, this is all speculation from hopeful fans who are hoping that the supposed insider will come through for them again as they did with Red Dead Redemption 2.

Whether or not Rockstar will reveal GTA 6 anytime soon in any type of trailer, teaser, or confirmation of its existence still, very much, remains to be seen.

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.
