The PlayStation 5 isn’t even out yet, but a new rumor is suggesting that Sony is in talks with Rockstar Games to have Grand Theft Auto 6 be a timed exclusive.

While we’re still a ways off from the release of the PS5 and the port of GTA V, everyone is curious to know when Rockstar will announce GTA 6 to the world.

As it turns out, Sony may be willing to pay big bucks to have the game appear on PS5 before any other console.

The rumor comes from YouTuber Foxy Games UK who claims that Sony has reached out to third-party studios and is willing to dish out a whopping $750 million for a deal with Rockstar.

“Allegedly a multi-game deal with one of the world’s biggest franchises is coming first to PlayStation 5,” he said. “If it’s legit and it fits… dare we say, Grand Theft Auto 6, if true then forget about console wars. There’s no console war. It is a wrap.”

The number of $750 million doesn’t seem too farfetched when you factor in the fact that Microsoft reportedly once spent $75 million to prevent GTA 4 from being a PS3 exclusive.

Given GTA’s current success with the fifth installment and GTA Online, the increase doesn’t seem out of place, thereby adding a bit of credibility to the rumor.

This all said, Foxy Games UK didn’t elaborate on the specifics of the potential deal, but it’s not like Grand Theft Auto games haven’t had some form of timed exclusivity before.

The GTA 4 DLC, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony were both released on the Xbox 360 first. Additionally, the next-gen version of GTA Online will be out on PS5 before coming to Xbox Series X and PC.

As always, take these rumors with a grain of salt – but given the hype surrounding GTA 6, it’s always possible that Sony has dug deep into their pockets to secure a deal.

A leaked GTA Online mission revolving around a new looks UFO finally looks set to be added to the game just inside for Halloween.

In every Grand Theft Auto game, there has some sort of secret that has caused the community to go wild and search for both clues and answers. With GTA V, that has been all about UFOs. 

Players have been searching high and low for some sort of Alien takeover or a controllable UFO, but for the most part, they’ve come up with nothing – bar the floating UFOs that appeared in the early days of the game’s release. 

However, in recent months, players have been able to crack the code on one GTA Online job that revolves around a new look UFO and the Fort Zancudo location.

The Business Battle, which was uncovered by The Game File Gurus back at the end of August, showed that players would need to head to the hangar in Fort Zancudo and collect spaceship parts. 

Ever since the job was uncovered, players have been asking when it would be released, and it looks like it could be coming soon. On October 22, Rockstar insider TezFun tweeted “Yes, most likely,” in response to a question that asked if the job would be available with the October 29 update.

“It makes sense for them to keep it till next week, to include Oct 31st within the event window,” Tez added, before further noting that the job is still disabled and being “reserved for next week.”

As Tez notes, the Halloween event still has juice left in it since it only went live on October 22, and should run until at least the beginning of November – where there will be another weekly update to bring it to a close.

Should the Business Battle be added, it could be a limited-time one like we’ve seen in the past, so you might have to act fast if you want to get involved. Though, only time will time how long it sticks around.
