The fans of GTA waiting for an announcement of the sixth game of the popular series are set for a disappointment. According to the official Rockstar Support page on Twitter, the messages that keep popping up in both multiplayer and single-player modes of GTA 5 are not an official statement of the game’s creators. It seems that one of the modders has found out how to use an in-game notification system in order to spread false news. As for the fans, they will have to remain patient while waiting for an official announcement of GTA 6.
The fans keep on waiting for GTA 6
The most recent title of the series, GTA 5 was launched in 2013 and even now, in 2018, it remains one of the most popular games. The main reason behind this great success is the multiplayer mode, GTA 5 Online. Thanks to constant releases of new content, the game remains fresh. The next expansion, Nightclub is set to be followed by Red Dead Redemption 2.
With all of this in mind, it seems unlikely that GTA 6 would be announced so soon. After all, Rockstar puts quite a lot of effort into the already-existing GTA 5. Not to mention that GTA 6 would require a lot of work in order to at least reach the level of its predecessor.
The notifications are not real
Many fans have noticed the messages popping up on the screens of their platforms, such as PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, referring to pre-orders of GTA 6. These notifications look real, but they are not. The fact that two platforms more difficult to hack, Xbox One and PS4, are free of these pop-ups, seems to prove it. At the moment, the reason behind these messages remains unknown.
It looks like the fans of the GTA series will need to remain patient while waiting for the news regarding GTA 6. In the meantime, they can enjoy the recent addition of nightclubs to the map in GTA 5 Online.
