Rockstar Games might well have dropped the biggest hint yet that the Grand Theft Auto video game series could be heading to another part of the world in GTA 6. At least, that’s what some fans think.

The game’s developers have revealed a brand new teaser for GTA Online’s next heist, involving one of the most popular features to be added to the map – the Diamond Casino & Resort.

This new heist will be coming on December 12, marking yet another addition of fresh content to the ever-changing online mode in GTA 5. While there’s been a news announcement including all details of the next major mission released, it’s a short teaser trailer that has caught the eyes of many fans.

Rumors have been rife in the game’s online community for quite some time about when the next game will be announced, what characters will be included in a future installment and some have speculated about where the next GTA game will be set – with moves to Europe and South America linked in the past.

While the new casino teaser might not have addressed any of those points, eagle-eyed social media users have spotted something particularly interesting in the still shots of the promotional video.

A map flashes across the screen for a split second in what looks like a technical glitch, showing only South America lit up, and now a portion of the fanbase have since suggested this could be the first easter egg hinting towards the setting of GTA 6.

This was pointed out in a post to Reddit from ApplelypseNow and it might come as a surprise to fans that this isn’t the only clue to support the theory, according to some hopeful users from the GTA6 subreddit.

VX97 said: “Doomsday Heist facility computer had circle around Vice City, Cuba, and Colombia and now South America is highlighted on this new Casino Heist DLC teaser. Even the mention of Project Americas is in RDR2 files. I think it’s happening, we gonna have Colombia in GTA 6!”

The original poster responded to that suggestion, too. They said: “Having Guarma in RDR2 was a bit suspicious too,” Seems like a lot of effort to develop a jungle environment for such a short chapter. Possible dry run for more expansive jungle in Columbia or Central America. Sort of like how North Yankton preempted the snow environments in RDR2.”

As long-term players of these games will know by now, fans absolutely love to put together their own theories and predict the next move of developers way ahead of schedule.

Whether or not this is actually a teasing easter egg for GTA 6 remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, Rockstar themselves haven’t confirmed a thing. The wait for official information continues.

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.
