Grand Theft Auto Online players can actually use the usually hilarious emails to send messages to friends and enemies. Here’s how you can do so. 

Even though GTA V is almost a decade old, players are still finding things that they didn’t know about in Los Santos. Take the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ in Paleto Bay as an example, players get teleported when they hit a certain location, or even the ‘zombie’ that hangs around North Vinewood.

These things extend to GTA Online too as players are still finding new ways to play the game – be it taking down survival missions with ease or being able to taunt an enemy using the in-game phone. 

However, did you know that you can actually email other players through the EyeFind website? Well, you can, and it’s actually pretty simple.

Computers, for the most part, are pretty useless in GTA Online.

Just like using the phone to call other players – where you simply slide the phone up, find their name in your contacts, and hit dial – emailing is actually pretty simple. 

You can use your phone as well as any laptop or PC that is laying around Los Santos and head to the EyeFind emails. It is hard to miss the email system, because as the in-game internet loads up, they’re displayed by the large envelope.

Simply click that, scroll down the list of players until you find someone you want to message and then type something out. Hit send and then the next time they open up the internet, they’ll have your message.

Now, is this really all that useful? Well, no, but it could be pretty funny. You can easily taunt an enemy after stealing from them and if they don’t see the email for a few days, you’re pretty much long gone.

Plus, it makes the laptops in your homes and businesses useful outside of just sitting there, doing nothing.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

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.
