Why leaked GTA 6 gameplay is almost definitely fake

A new gameplay ‘leak’ for Grand Theft Auto fans from looking into a number of clues in the hopes of getting GTA 6. 

There have been detailed theories about the developer’s teasing a new title with GTA Online updates, as well as numerous ‘leaks’ about the supposed details about the new game. Yet, despite all that, some supposed leakers believe they have revealed some alpha gameplay, but things aren’t as the seem.

Rockstar GamesGrand Theft Auto fans are eagerly awaiting the announcement of GTA 6.

A video of GTA 6 ‘gameplay’ surfaced on a since-deleted Instagram account named, unsurprisingly, gta6_leaks. Before the account was deleted though, some fans were able to catch all of the supposed ‘leaked’ videos and images they uploaded. 

One, which was reuploaded to YouTube, showed an extremely brief clip – one second long, in fact – of a man walking down a Miami-looking street, reminiscent of Vice City. While the snippet didn’t exactly show off anything, eagle-eyed viewers will have been able to spot why it wasn’t exactly real.

In the bottom left-hand corner, where it appears to show a map, there are three golden circles just above it – one with a heart, another with a line through it, and the third with a star-like shape. 

It’s pretty easy to tell where this has come from, as it’s the exact same, bar the star, as Red Dead Redemption 2’s health, energy, and dead eye tracker systems. If that wasn’t enough, though, watching the character walk slowly appears to show them trotting on the spot – as if they’re walking against a background, and not an actual map.

Whether or not Rockstar will announce GTA 6 as their next game remains up in the air, but it may be more likely than not considering similar ‘leaks’ for Bully 2 were debunked as fan-made fakes

The wait for the next installment in the iconic franchise may go on for some time, though, as Red Dead Redemption on PC is Rockstar’s next release.

Some rumors suggest that Rockstar will now be waiting until the next generation of consoles release, with both the PS5 and new Xbox coming in late 2020.


GTA Online Black Friday update: Huge sales, Open Wheel bonuses, more

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.
