Over the last few days, we’ve heard about a rumor involving GTA 6, one of the most anticipated games that we have not received any information on yet. There have been new details surfacing that match what has been circulating for a couple of years now, but with more details added, which made them a bit more believable.
However, just as we thought, that information is reported to be fake by Kotaku’s journalist Jason Schreier on Twitter. Schreier is familiar both with the news at Rockstar Games, the game industry and how this stuff works on the Internet.
“A good rule of thumb is that if a video game leak is a giant list of incredible-sounding bullet points, it’s fake,” Schreier said on Twitter, sharing a list filled with bullet points about this possibly leaked GTA 6, which, again, we don’t even know if it’s in the making or not at Rockstar Games now.
We’ve not reported about the rumor since we did know that it was fake, but in case you’re wondering, you can find it here with all the details such as the codename Project Americas. Which has been around for a couple of years now, and pre-production started in 2012 and ramping up in 2015.
The game was said to be set in 1970-1980s, “in both Vice City and a new fictional location based on Rio de Janeiro, with some linear missions taking place in Liberty City (not open world), think Ludendorff in GTAV.” The source added “also been recently hearing about Cuba but I ain’t sure?” so you can see why it was so hard to believe it.
Hopefully, we’ll learn more about GTA 6 when the right time comes, but knowing the Rockstar Games times, we do believe it’ll take a long while before that time arrives.
