We encounter fake news everywhere, be it about persons or about games. There’s an unknown reason why the Grand Theft Auto franchise is the most popular target of these fake news. Probably because of its popularity. Or probably because the developers take their time (which is a lot) to release new games. There are on the internet rumors about GTA 6 since GTA 5 was released, and we understand the excitement of the players. But we think that this time it went too far. GTA Online practically swims in pop-ups which are asking people of they want to pre-order GTA 6 in 2019. This smells funny to us.
Rockstar told Twitter it was all a hoax
Truth be told, we understand why many people believed this whole thing because it must be true if it appeared in-game, right? It’s not like this is a YouTube video which was bad edited. But we think that people got too exited too early. Rockstar has made its plans clear on Twitter, after having a dialogue with one of the players. The developers said that the Flyers are just the idea of some players who are controlling the game with mods and that it isn’t what they had in mind.
We are somewhat impressed. This must have to take a lot of time and patience. However, we’ve seen many rumors about GTA 6, and this one is the poorest of them all.
What we know for sure is that it’s not just a dream– GTA 6 will make its appearance at some point. It’s probably still in developing as we speak, but we don’t think that they got past the conceptualization stage. We don’t know for sure if it will hit the market in this generation of consoles. If you ask us, it probably won’t.
