Some Grand Theft Auto Online players think the new set of “Gerald’s Last Play” missions could be hinting at upcoming news on GTA 6, but others aren’t as convinced that’s actually the case.

On Friday, April 24 Rockstar rolled out a set of six new contact missions called “Gerald’s Last Play” in which players assist the dealer in preparing to exit the Los Santos drug market.

Gerald begins by telling players “Word is we got hard times coming. Way I see it, we gotta make bank before s**t hits the fan.”

Rockstar added new Gerald contact mission in Online called “Last Play” today. Here is the message from Gerald. Could it mean something? I mean, it’s an interesting word play here. from r/GTA6

Could [the message from Gerald] mean something?” Reddit user bozidarilic asked. “I mean, it’s an interesting word play here.”

Some users said it was obvious from what Gerald and Rockstar are saying about the missions that this is all leading towards a brand new heist, but user Hazebuster2708 pointed to clues around GTA Online’s map that could paint a slightly different picture.

“Nah, we make money BEFORE Before S**t Hits the Fan,” Hazebuster proposed. “The next thing is no heist”

To back up their hypothesis, Haze pointed to the alien invasion auto shop floor players can unlock, and a mysterious poster that reads “Los Santos 2020” with an image of an alien above it.

Gerald could be leading players to a new heist, but hear us out: aliens.

Building off of Haze’s initial evidence, another user named MrBoomin31 suggested that “s**t hitting the fan” could signal the final chapter for GTA 5’s Los Santos.

“If it’s an alien invasion, I can see them using that to end the “world” sorta for gta online to make way for a new gta online in 6,” MrBoomin mused. “The fall of Los Santos kinda.”

Other users, though, didn’t think anything that extreme was on the horizon. What could happen, some suggested, is that Gerald is simply killed off.

Maybe Gerald will simply be moving out of that tiny apartment after all these years.

Gerald’s message certainly is a bit ominous, so players would be wise to stay on the lookout for what’s to come, whatever it ends up being.

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.
