Grand Theft Auto 6 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Grand Theft Auto 6 has leaked – except it most definitely hasn’t. Fan fiction on Reddit claims that the sequel will span Vice City, South America, and Cuba – it’ll also purportedly run decades, with each location changing as the years whisk by. Just like in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, you’ll apparently be building your own drug empire.

It’d all be incredible if it were true, but this is just about as fake as a Hollywood smile. The original post claims to be getting “insider” information from people who used to write for sites like Kotaku, but that’s a big red flag because it’s not like games writers are sitting on piles of secret information. Other fantasists have since come out of the woodwork, piling on more speculation.

Indeed, apparently we can expect hurricanes, because that sounds like something cool Rockstar could add, right? Look, we don’t want to sound too miserable in this article, but we wouldn’t be doing our due diligence if we didn’t inform you that this is all a load of tosh. They're nice ideas, but that’s all they are: nice ideas.
