Jaryd ‘GTA RP led to him being gunned down in a brutal drive-by shooting. 

The popular Twitch streamer plays as one of the NoPixel server’s most wanted criminals, Charles Johnson, but has had his roleplaying skills called into question after being seen firing at police officers in broad daylight on August 17.

Yet, just two days later, he was targeted by a group of other players in a blacked out vehicle, who didn’t appear to be aggressive at first but their friendly front quickly disappeared with what happened next.

Summit was climbing over a wall before being made aware of a mysterious, black Subaru driving nearby. Unsuspecting of the crew seated inside, the streamer slipped into his own vehicle right next to it and was about to leave the area.

Why?”Seconds later the GTA RP police arrived to the scene with fire extinguishers to put out the fire inside the bonnet of the car, but they were too late. The drive-by shooters where well away by that point.

    Whether or not the incident was connected to summit1g previously opening fire on police officers and other players remains to be seen, but word spreads fast in the GTA RP server and we’ll surely find out the reason sometime soon.

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.
