Grand Theft Auto 6 Leaked By Former Rockstar Employee
While Grand Theft Auto Online is still cranking out regular content updates and events, the mode’s main game of GTA 5 has been relatively abandoned in the years since its current-generation release. This has led to plenty of speculation regarding Rockstar Games’ eventual sequel, several notable instances cropping up in recent months teasing Grand Theft Auto 6 may be on its way to reality soon.
The long-rumored sixth mainline entry appears to have received its most compelling evidence yet, a former employee of Rockstar seemingly confirming the project’s existence. A recent resume (via DSOGaming) posted by former Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA 5 artist Bibin Michael reveals that the creative had also worked on the unannounced Grand Theft Auto 6 during his stay at Rockstar. Working out of India, it’s said he provided “real world” vehicle concepts for the upcoming game.
Heading over to Michael’s Artstation account, it appears the reverence to GTA 6 has since been removed, possibly lending a bit more credibility to this apparent leak. On the flip side, it’s also possible the revealing resume entry could have been a mistake, it being removed for purposes of clarity rather than being a sign of the anticipated 6th entry. Either way, it’s probably best to rein in expectations for the time being.
However, maybe one shouldn’t rein them in too much. An intriguing rumor was let loose earlier in the month, suggesting a release for the currently unconfirmed Grand Theft Auto 6 may be set for sometime next year. It was also said to be a potential launch title for the recently detailed PlayStation 5, but neither rumor have since been backed up in a reliable capacity.
What do you think? Will Grand Theft Auto 6 be on the way soon, or do you feel that GTA Online has made any future sequels redundant?
