Are you waiting for the most anticipated Rockstar games of all time? Here is everything you need to know about Grand Theft Auto VI leaks and rumors.

GTA fans have been getting impatient since the leaked gameplay videos surfaced online. Even though Rockstar Games have updated on the development phase of the upcoming GTA, there have been rumors that Grand Theft Auto VI actors and game developers are confirming.

But at the same time, many GTA mods and fan-made gameplays also came online, making things undeniably realistic and exciting for the gaming community. That is why we are here to discuss everything we have learned about Grand Theft Auto VI from the leaks and rumors.

When Did Rockstar Updated Fans on GTA VI?

Rockstar games officially confirmed in February 2022 that there would be a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series, with fans jumping off their seats. Narrating in one of their tweets, Rockstar Games promised to deliver something innovative that fans have not seen or experienced before.

Even though the announcement was official, Rockstar did not give any direct update or expected release date of Grand Theft Auto VI, leaving the fans curious. This announcement had the attention of almost every gamer in the world, which also included hackers.

GTA VI Leaks and Rumors

GTA VI made the news right after the confirmation announcement by Rockstar Games. However, on September 18, 2022, a UK-based hacker entered the Rockstar Games system and accessed many files and recordings, which was very unexpected for the whole Rockstar franchise.

After September, over 3 gigabytes of data, including more than 90 videos and images of GTA VI gameplay, surfaced online, revealing the in-development testing phase, maps, and some dialogues used by early protagonists in the Rockstar Games universe.

Here we can see some of the gameplay images and screenshots which went instantly viral over the weekend on September 18, 2022. This attack was confirmed by Rockstar Games in one of their tweets, assuring that the development phase will continue even after the disappointing incident.

After carefully assessing the leaked gameplay footage, the presence of palm trees and sunny weather indicated that GTA VI is expected to be set in Vice City (Miami) or Los Santos (Los Angeles).

However, fans became more concerned about the GTA VI location when the phrase “Vice City” appeared in the corner of the screen, which can be seen in the image below.

Vice City Location

The Rockstar Fans believe that the franchise will expand the map this time to a number of locations instead of just sticking to a single area of the city. Fans expect to see a remake of the Grand Theft Auto San Andreas locations as they were divided into San Fierro, Las Venturas, and Los Santos, compiled as a huge map.

However, no official blueprints or locations have been revealed by the franchise. Some of the fans went one step ahead by comparing buildings from the leaked gameplay videos with real-life locations and landmarks.

Now that we have learned about the location, it all comes down to the gameplay and action the gamers have experienced in the Rockstar Games.

Like the rest of the Grand Theft Auto Series games, GTA VI is undoubtedly expected to be a third-person shooter. Moreover, you get the choice to enjoy a first-person view, just like Grand Theft Auto V, which was discovered in the leaked footage. But there is more to it.

Access Loot Bags

As promised in the announcement message from Rockstar Games, the leaked footage reveals that you can access items from the duffle and loot bag. This option gives players the ability to carry health packs, aspirin, or any other item that might be featured in the expected Grand Theft Auto game.

Drop or Pick Weapons

Similar to the concept in Grand Theft Auto V, you can either drop or pick any weapons revealed in the GTA VI leaked footage. The accessibility options are categorized as “Weapons,” “Equipment,” and “Gear.” You can choose to drop any of the items easily by cycling through them.

Male and Female Players

Grand Theft Auto VI leaked footage also revealed a female protagonist as a playable character, which is expected to be part of the story mode. This new revelation has never been experienced in the Grand Theft Auto universe, except for the multiplayer gameplay.

Adding a female character reveals that Rockstar truly sticks to their promise of going beyond what they have previously offered.

Moreover, the players can also choose a male character which was also chosen to play as a male character, which can be seen in many leaked screenshots and videos.

The fact that there are different choices for choosing a character based on gender raises many questions, like, will GTA VI have separate storylines for male and female characters, or can players customize their characters? The answers are yet to be found. However, GTA VI is expected to be focused on single-player rather than a trilogy of characters in GTA V.

Rumored Images of GTA VI

Ever since the news of GTA VI leaked images surfaced online, many GTA modders have become active with their skillset. People are being deceived with high-quality images of gameplay from GTA V and GTA Vice City mods.

However, the interface and gameplay from the leaked footage tell a different story compared to these modded online images. Many modders mocked Rockstar games by presenting a better version of GTA Vice City enhanced with graphics of gameplay of GTA V.

Conclusion

The gaming community has been waiting impatiently for the release and updates on their favorite Grand Theft Auto VI for about a decade. Rockstar gave a temporary consolation by releasing the GTA Trilogy to the gamer’s community.

However, it fueled fire due to poor graphics and dozens of glitches. The leaked images and footage have given the gamer community hope to expect GTA VI in the upcoming years with enhanced graphics and gameplay like never before.
