If you are a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series, you might be eagerly waiting for any news about the next installment, GTA 6. Rockstar Games has been very secretive about the development of GTA 6, only confirming that it is in active development since February 2022. However, a recent rumor suggests that the studio might be preparing for a big reveal on October 26, 2023.
The October 26 Rumor
The rumor comes from a Twitter user named @Okami13_, who has a history of leaking accurate information about upcoming games such as Payday 3 and Fable.
The tweet was accompanied by an image of a calendar with the date October 26 circled in red. Many fans interpreted this as a hint that Rockstar Games will announce GTA 6 on that date.
Why October 26?
The date October 26 might not be a random choice. It is the same date that Rockstar Games released Red Dead Redemption 2, one of its most successful games, in 2018. It is also the same date that GTA Vice City, one of the most popular entries in the GTA series, was released in 2002.
Some fans speculate that this could mean that GTA 6 will return to Vice City, the fictional version of Miami that was featured in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories. This is supported by a Bloomberg report from June 2022, which claimed that GTA 6 will be set in Vice City and will feature multiple cities and missions that will be updated regularly.
How Likely Is It?
Of course, this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt, as Rockstar Games has not confirmed or denied anything about GTA 6. The studio is known for being very secretive and unpredictable when it comes to announcing its games. For example, GTA 5 was announced with a trailer on November 2, 2011, almost two years before its release in September 2013.
However, there is some evidence that Rockstar Games is gearing up for something big in the near future. The studio recently updated its website with new images and logos, some of which could be related to GTA 6https://www.ign.com/articles/grand-theft-auto-6-release-date-gameplay-story-latest-news. The studio also posted several job listings for positions such as game testers, programmers, and artists, which could indicate that GTA 6 is nearing completion.
Additionally, Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, has projected a huge increase in its revenue for the fiscal year 2025 (April 1, 2024 – March 31, 2025), which could imply that GTA 6 will be released during that period.
What to Expect from GTA 6?
While we don’t have much official information about GTA 6, we can make some educated guesses based on the previous games and the industry trends. Here are some of the possible features and aspects of GTA 6:
• A massive open world that spans multiple cities and regions, possibly including Vice City, Liberty City (New York), and South America.
• A dynamic and immersive gameplay experience that adapts to the player’s choices and actions, such as changing weather, traffic, NPC behavior, and mission outcomes.
• A diverse and engaging story that follows multiple protagonists with different backgrounds, personalities, and motivations.
• A rich and varied online mode that allows players to create their own characters, customize their vehicles and properties, join gangs and crews, participate in heists and races, and explore the world with other players.
• A stunning and realistic graphics engine that takes advantage of the power of the next-generation consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S) and PC hardware.
