Latest GTA 6 Leaks: Everything We Know About

The massive leaks that occurred last year for GTA 6 have given us much more information than we should have at this time.

We may not know when Grand Theft Auto VI will be released, but we do know a lot more than we did before each new GTA game.

A massive GTA 6 leak last year revealed the game’s location, new characters, and other elements, giving us a better idea of what to anticipate from Rockstar’s upcoming crime sim.

Who are the main characters in GTA VI?

Though the character names are yet to be revealed, leaked information and reports from Bloomberg suggest that Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA VI) will feature a crime duo—a Caucasian male and a Latina female—apparently inspired by the real-life, Great Depression-era outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Leaked footage proposes that the D-pad could be used to switch between these characters, similar to in GTA V.

Interestingly, this release will allow you to control a violent, female protagonist—a rather controversial nod to feminism.

Though GTA VI isn’t the first game to feature a playable female character, the internet’s reaction to this particular development has been predictable.

While there are claims that the game is more culturally sensitive, the prospect of a completely non-sexist GTA is as plausible as the existence of the Easter Bunny. (Please refrain from sending me your hypotheses or indistinct images claimed to be captured on a certain Easter Sunday.)

Is there a GTA 6 release date?

As of now, Rockstar Games, the creator of the Grand Theft Auto series, has not provided an official release date for GTA 6. However, some reports suggest that the publisher Take-Two Interactive may be planning for a release in the 2025 fiscal year, which falls between April 1, 2024, and March 31, 2025. Again, this is not confirmed, just implied.

The development of GTA 6, however, was officially confirmed by Rockstar in February 2022 and is reportedly “well underway,” according to Rockstar

What city is GTA VI set in?

Imagine you’re poised to embark on a journey to Florida, albeit a virtual version where my existence isn’t under any lawful scrutiny (regarding the policies of this company, one can never be too sure). The forthcoming installment of Grand Theft Auto will be located in the franchise’s interpretation of Miami: Vice City. Preliminary insights suggest the game could boast an impressively large map.

What’s supporting this anticipation? Apart from the recently leaked screenshots exhibiting quintessential Floridian landscapes, one of them even displays the city’s name plastered across a train car.

The Grand Theft Auto franchise last ventured into Vice City with the PlayStation Portable game, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. This was established on the game map from an 80s-themed rendition of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, featuring Ray Liotta as Tommy Vercetti.

GTA 6 gameplay leak

The leaks from last year revealed significant details about the forthcoming game. We discovered the game will feature at least two playable characters, the setting will be Vice City, and we have an idea about its progress in development. But there’s more.

The leaked videos hint that GTA VI continues the franchise’s familiar gameplay. Additionally, they provide clues about potential random events. Their manifestation within the game remains speculative at this point. However, intriguing event names caught from the leaks include “DUI Test,” “Scarface Crime Scene,” “UFO Animal House,” “Voice in a storm drain,” “warehouse sex robots,” and, interestingly, “fishing.”

GTA 6 setting and map size rumors

As of now, various leaks and rumors suggest that the setting for GTA 6 could predominantly feature Vice City. Given the legacy of the GTA franchise, it is anticipated that this map will be denser, more detailed, and filled with numerous places to explore.

In terms of specifics, leaks hint that the map size for GTA 6 might supersede the one from GTA 5, potentially making it the largest GTA game ever. Some fan calculations estimate the new map to be around 50% larger than the one in GTA 5.

However, these pieces of information are unofficial and derived from leaks and rumors across the internet. Additionally, Rockstar Games has not confirmed the release date for the game yet. Fans suspect it may potentially release around the Fiscal Year 2024

Do we know about GTA 6’s platforms?

No official platform details have been confirmed for Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) as of yet. However, it’s safe to assume that GTA 6 might launch on PlayStation 5 (PS5) and Xbox Series X|S

If the game follows the estimated release time around 2023/24, we would be firmly in the PS5 / Xbox Series X generation, although there is speculation that Rockstar might have versions for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One

Will there be crossplay in GTA 6?

It remains unclear whether Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) will support cross-platform play. The decision ultimately lies with Rockstar Games, the developer and publisher of the Grand Theft Auto series. However, no official confirmation has been provided in this regard

Bitcoin feature currency leaks

In these new additions to the gameplay, players could receive cryptocurrency as rewards for certain missions, specifically those that involve characters wanting to transfer significant and untraceable amounts of money. It’s further suggested that the crypto rewards can be traded on an in-game stock market

It’s worth noting that although the concept mirrors Bitcoin, the in-game cryptocurrency will only exist within the boundaries of GTA 6 and will not hold any value in the real world. This feature aligns with the emerging “play-to-earn” trend in the gaming scene.

However, these are all based on leaks and speculations, and Rockstar Games, the developers of GTA 6, have not yet confirmed these features

Why is GTA 6 leak a big deal?

The Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) leak is a big deal, primarily because of the high anticipation surrounding the game. Rockstar, the game’s developer, is known for its intense secrecy regarding upcoming titles, so a leak of this magnitude is unprecedented

The leak was unusually substantial, with “dozens of video files” relating to the game ending up online. The leaked footage confirmed numerous details about GTA 6 that fans had been eagerly awaiting, including the setting, characters, and gameplay. IGN reports that some consider it to be the most significant video game leak of all time

Another key aspect that made this leak a big deal was how it actually happened. This significant information leak was the result of a hacker breaching Rockstar’s network. This incident also raised many questions on the security aspects of game development

However, it’s essential to note that the leak might not be considered a victory for transparency, as pointed out by Polygon. It might not push Rockstar to hasten the release of the game either

Is GTA 6 officially confirmed?

Yes. On February 4, 2022, Rockstar Games used a platform referred to as “Twitter” to officially announce a new installment in the Grand Theft Auto series.

Although Rockstar would have preferred to limit information about the next GTA game to the official announcement, leaks have emerged. However, before delving into these leaks, let’s recap what we have gathered from official sources.

What is the budget of GTA 6?

The budget for GTA 6 is reportedly up to a staggering $2 billion, according to multiple sources. It’s worth noting that this would make it one of the most ambitious and expensive games in the history of the series

For comparison, the most recent game in the Grand Theft Auto series, GTA 5, is known to have cost around $265 million. Given that the GTA series has only increased in ambition and scope with each new installment, the cited budget for GTA 6 seems like a plausible figure.

It’s crucial to understand that the actual cost can still fluctuate as the game is still in development. Developers might find themselves needing to adjust their spending for various factors, such as longer development times, unexpected difficulties, or changes to the game’s design.
