Supposed Rockstar insider Chris ‘Liberty93’ has potentially revealed some new details about GTA 6, claiming that some people have told him that the story is finished.

Grand Theft Auto fans across the globe have been clamoring for some indication that GTA VI is around the corner and set to be released. Though, after multiple insiders claimed that it was set to be announced in March, hopes of seeing the game this year were somewhat dashed.

Kotaku’s Jason Schrier poured further cold water on things by claiming that the was barely in early production – but reliable Rockstar insider TezFun stated that it was actually about 70% done. Now, another that appears to be in the loop has stepped up with apparent sources of their own.

Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a huge hit with fans – but that doesn’t make them any less excited for GTA 6.

Chris, who is also known as Liberty93 on Rockstar Mag, claimed that he had been informed that the story was completed prior to Dan Houser’s departure from Rockstar. “If Dan [Houser], who’s writing the story, leaves Rockstar it’s kind of a bit of Rockstar’s soul which is leaving,” the Frenchman said on the Rockstar Mag live stream.

“People tell me I shouldn’t be worried because GTA VI’s story is already finished. It could be true, but Red Dead Redemption 2’s story was finished in 2012, but they still made changes in late 2017, early 2018, and many little details were modified.”

Liberty93 also noted that they had contacted sources at Rockstar after a story that the game had only just entered early development shocked many fans. 

“In our video that came Thursday night, we told you that it’s not true. According to our trustworthy sources, the game has been in dev since 2017,” he added, before noting that he even looked into TezFun’s claims as well. “Of course, I looked into it and the pre-production officially began in late 2014 and the real production in 2015.”

While the claims that the story is finished will signal to some fans that the game is closer than everyone’s thinks, there is no way of knowing if that is the case just yet.

Some have claimed that the game will be released before the end of 2020, however, Rockstar hasn’t officially announced that they’re working on GTA 6 – let alone even started advertising it. So, this wait could be going on for a little while longer yet.

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.
