A new leak has suggested that GTA 6’s release could be delayed with Rockstar Games working on a new, secret project that revolves around a medieval theme. 

Grand Theft Auto fans have been in an excruciating waiting period for anything related to the confirmation that they’ll be getting GTA 6 in the near future. 

The uber-popular sandbox franchise has given way to Red Dead Redemption 2, which finally launched on PC at the start of November, and has received numerous content updates to the multiplayer side of things. However, leaks – with the validity of many being in question – have surfaced for GTA 6, but a new one could dent the hopes of fans who want it sooner rather than later.

RockstarGTA V was hugely successful for Rockstar, and the wait for GTA 6 rumbles on.

A post on the GamingLeaksAndRumors subreddit, which is full of correct and incorrect information, suggests that Rockstar is working on an open-world medieval title instead of GTA 6 and Bully 2.

Unlike previous apparent GTA ‘leaks’ there is no code name for the title, but, the poster does note that sword fighting and dueling would be a key mechanic – with the project apparently being aimed for release in early 2021.

Now, while it may seem like a completely left-field piece of information, seeing as Rockstar hasn’t explored the medieval setting previously, it may line up with an earlier LinkedIn post.

Back on November 18, users on the GTA6 subreddit uncovered a LinkedIn profile from an Indian developer at Dhruva Interactive – a game studio that recently became a part of Rockstar – that also had hinted at a medieval project. 

“Creating modular environment pieces with organic finish carefully following medieval architecture style,” reads one of the responsibilities for the role of an environmental artist. 

Hey guys I found a big one! Don’t steal> (Mr. Bossforthetheft) :)). I will post another post showing his profile and you guys can look at his current projects he is working on. from GTA6

While plenty of fans will have doubts, and rightly so, it is worth taking these findings with a massive pinch of salt seeing as GTA 6 hasn’t even been announced yet, let alone delayed entirely. 

There have been rumblings about a possible annoucement for GTA 6 at the upcoming PlayStation awards, as well as a PlayStation 5 pre-order bundle, but we’ll just have to wait and see what comes next.

Rockstar employee leaks more “unannounced titles” amid GTA 6 speculation

Fans have discovered some new clues pointing towards Grand Theft Auto 6 as hype for the yet-to-be-announced game grows to gargantuan proportions.

Rockstar Games has yet to officially announce the next installment in the GTA series, but that hasn’t stopped fans from doing some digging into the company’s developers to see what they’ve been working on.

Now, more evidence has been found indicating that GTA 6 is in development alongside at least one other project that hasn’t been revealed yet.

Over on the website LinkedIn, fans spotted the page for Rockstar Leeds Senior Designer Ian Gander. According to his profile, he’s been at Rockstar for nearly 10 years where he worked on GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2.

What could those unannounced titles be?

His profile specifically states he helped with the “Design and implementation of various missions and gameplay features.”

However, there is another part to his profile that really has fans in a frenzy. In addition to Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead, he also worked as a designer on “Unannounced title(s): TBC.”

The acronym “TBC” normally means to be confirmed or continued, so it’s possible that these projects were either scrapped by Rockstar or just yet to be announced.

The last entry in the series was released back on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Nonetheless, the fact that multiple titles are listed is certainly an interesting twist given how few games the company releases.

Of course, while it’s possible this isn’t even related to GTA 6, given the success of GTA V and Online, it seems silly that Rockstar wouldn’t have folks who worked on other games in the series help develop the next installment.

This isn’t the first time a Rockstar employee has listed an unannounced title on their Linkedin. As Dexerto previously reported, Sarah Overend, a gameplay and weapons animator for Red Dead Online also listed a TBA title on her profile.

Hopefully, we get some news soon and an announcement drops sometime in 2021. We still have the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series posts of GTA V coming out this year, but ideally, we’ll get some GTA 6 news shortly after that.
