GTA 6 in development?

A 3D artist seemed to have listed previous experience on their résumé that strongly suggested he worked with the creators of Grand Theft Auto on the next iteration of the game.

His résumé says he worked at the Rockstar Game’s India studio as a Junior Vehicle Artist from December 2017 to April 2018. The description for his work leaves little to interpretation, as it read: “Create concept vehicles matching with real world for [GTA 5 DLC] and upcoming [GTA 6].”

How does a leak like this happen?

Major game companies sometimes have multiple studios across the world to work on different sections of a project at the same time.

Huge titles like a typical Rockstar Games product combine the efforts of those studios so that multiple parts of a project can be developed simultaneously, so as to not compromise quality for a quicker turnover.

Following the collaborations with top secret projects for major titles like Grand Theft Auto 6, non-disclosure agreements (NDA’s) are implemented to keep games under wraps until the company is ready to make an announcement. Though there’s bound to be some leaks from managing hundreds of people.

If the 3D artist’s slipup is to be believed it would suggest that Grand Theft Auto 6 has been in development for at least over a year now, hopefully meaning that a full reveal is closer than expected.
