It’s no surprise there’s likely a Grand Theft Auto 6 in the works- after all, the IP is one of the biggest in entertainment around the world, let alone gaming.
This week, we saw a massive Grand Theft Auto 6 leak that originated from PasteBin. The leak alleges that a new GTA title is in development, and it apparently builds on some of the biggest and best features we’ve seen in Rockstar games this generation so far.
The Pastebin post – now deleted – was scoped by Dexerto before it was removed, and seemed to assert (somewhat unsurprisingly!) that the game will be a next-gen only title. Bad news for PS3 and Xbox 360 players, then.
If you want a hint as to the authenticity of the post that appeared on the site, leakers at Pastebin have recently had more GTA 6 news to share, and they also correctly predicted the specs for the PS5 before it was announced.
So whilst we’re still fairly dubious about the authenticity about what’s been revealed in this leak, it’s something to consider as we wait for any official news on the game.
The leaker on Pastebin noted GTA 6 will only be available on next-gen consoles such as “PS5” and “Xbox 2” – meaning that we’re not going to get a look at this game any time soon, and we’ll be playing it even later.
As to why we won’t see it on this gen… well, the game simply sounds too big! “This game can‘t come out for PS4 because of memory restrictions” notes the post.
This is because the map will apparently be huge, featuring “multiple big cities which players can travel across”. Sounds to us like it could be similar to San Andreas, where players had three huge cities available to them by the end of the game in the form of Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas.
Apparently, GTA6 will focus on the East Coast: Vice City and Liberty City satirizing Miami and New York respectively.
“You will start as a small time guy in Liberty City doing odd chores and small-time thefts and eventually work your way to Vice city where you will join a famous gang,” the leaker notes.
Apparently, the end game is you becoming a ‘Drug Lord’ – we’re thinking Breaking Bad vibes, but can’t be sure.
“Certain shops will sell different types of items in different eras. RDR2 type stranger dialogues will be implemented,” continues the leaker.
“There are big plans in online and with major content like newer towns. They are working closely with Microsoft and Sony on cloud gaming which will help them enable online to be a continuous process.”
It all sounds a bit vague, but pretty exciting – we look forward to hearing more… but it’s likely nothing official will come from Rockstar for a good long while. We’ll keep you updated if it does.
