GTA players have uncovered a new in-game advert in Grand Theft Auto V that seemingly adds credence to the rumors surrounding the location and story of GTA 6.

Ever since Rockstar Games released GTA V back in 2013, fans of the uber-popular sandbox franchise have been awaiting the next installment. Since then, the famed developers have delivered constant updates to GTA Online, as well as a follow-up to Red Dead Redemption.

Outside of speculation, rumors, and theories, news about GTA VI has been thin on the ground, with Rockstar not yet confirming if its actually in development or not. However, there have been plenty of unconfirmed leaks about its supposed story and location, with fans finding possible hints inside GTA V that seem to add authenticity to these ‘leaks’.

GTA fans have been waiting for any sort of news about GTA 6.

The newest hint comes in the form of an in-game advert for ‘Six Figure Temps’ and ‘Adios Airlines,’ which both have South American flavor to their in-game standings. As pointed out by Reddit user MrBurpAlot, heading to the Six Figure Temps websites in-game will lead you to a questionnaire about taking on the job.

Now, it is clearly a reference to becoming a drug mule between Los Santos and South America, but the use of ‘Six’ and the Southern America countries – like the Puerto Rican links to Adios Airlines – is certainly interesting.

Potential discovery? Seems a bit coincidental they chose 6 instead of 5 or 7… from GTA6

What this all links to, though, is the early leak surrounding the games supposed story that would apparently place you outside of the usual Central American themed locations of GTA and place you in locations like Colombia.

This rumor seemingly gained additional credence before the turn of the new year as Rockstar sent out Christmas gifts that included a Colombian-themed Rockstar logo patch – something that they haven’t done before.

Now, as ever, these links should be taken with a pinch of salt until the developers actually acknowledge the next GTA game.

It remains to be seen as to what will actually be the story and location of GTA 6, but Rockstar has been known to tease their next game right under the nose of fans.

Grand Theft Auto Online fans have discovered a possible GTA 6 teaser hidden within the newest trailer for the game’s latest heist.

It seems like every month or so there is some sort of leak or rumor about the long-awaited GTA 6, but Rockstar has yet to reveal any information on the highly-anticipated, albeit inevitable title.

Instead, the company has gone all-in with GTA Online content and has begun teasing the newest mode known as the Cayo Perico heist.

One of the teasers for the heist was uploaded to YouTube with the title “surveil.exe.”

GTA Online’s newest heist kicks off December 15.

In it, secretive-looking security footage with a green tint shows a body by the beach, with a briefcase and some farmland. Notably, on the bottom of the screen there are some coordinates labeled “38.527A N; 79.6129A W.”

Most fans would probably just ignore this or chop it up as Rockstar trying to add some neat visual flair to make the footage seem more mysterious.

However, others decided to do some digging and tried searching for the coordinates on Google Maps. What they ended up seeing was either purposefully intended by Rockstar or one heck of a coincidence. If it’s intentional this would be the first-ever official GTA VI teaser.

As you can see, Twitter user Wellgamer discovered that this pulls up a winding road that takes the shape of a “VI.”

“The only job I had was to get the exact coordinate, get each image square from the G-Maps and reassemble the entire image, making the image look better,” Wellgamer explained and added that the road is from Virginia, United States.

The GTA games often use roman numerals instead of standard numbers, so if this was an intentional Easter egg from Rockstar, could this mean Virginia will be connected to GTA 6 in some capacity?

It’s expected that whenever GTA 6 is revealed it will have a connection to Vice City, so Virginia seems like a bit of a wildcard all things considered. Maybe it’s VIrginia instead of VIce City?

Nonetheless, we can only hope that this is a sign that Rockstar is preparing for a big announcement in the future and we won’t have much longer to wait until the next entry in the series is revealed.
