An Austrian games retailer that has a history of leaking game releases has dropped their listing for GTA 6, and it could be coming sooner than some fans might expect.

Even though there haven’t been any official hints or teases from Rockstar Games themselves, fans of the Grand Theft Auto franchise have been scouring GTA V’s single-player and online modes, as well as the internet for any sort of hint about GTA VI. 

As it stands, the only things they’ve got to work from are supposed ‘leaks’ that make the next installment of the iconic sandbox franchise sound even more ambitious than normal. However, when it comes to a potential release date, some have speculated that they could be waiting at least another year or two.

Rockstar GamesGTA V was hugely successful for Rockstar but there hasn’t been a follow-up, yet.

However, that’s where Gameware from Austria come in to play. As of January 14, the online games retailer has listed GTA 6 as “coming in 2020” to the Xbox One, PS4, and PC platforms. 

Now, there’s no exact release date mentioned, nor an announcement date from Rockstar Games themselves. Also, even though the listing contains a placeholder for the cover art, it also lists a ‘D1 Edition’ that comes with a bonus. However, again, it’s not mentioned what that contains.

Yet, it is interesting to see the listing arrive on the Austrian website. In the past, Gameware have leaked the existence of games like Need for Speed Heat and Devil May Cry 5 before their announcements. 

GamewareThe game retailer has listing for a number of different versions.

Of course, other retailers like Amazon have listed games early in the past, but that’s usually a placeholder and comes when the game is known about – unlike Gameware. 

Despite their leaker past, it may be worth taking the listing with a pinch of salt as it could just be a case of the retailer getting ahead of the game. Though, it’s worth keeping an eye on to see if they reveal any further details at a later date.

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.
