The atmosphere among gamers and die-hard Grand Theft Auto fans is electric with excitement. Fan ideas and suspicions about GTA 6’s announcement have swept the internet. Recent social media speculation says Rockstar Games may reveal a major announcement this week.
While the theory remains unconfirmed by the developer, it has undoubtedly piqued the curiosity of gamers everywhere. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to approach this information with a healthy dose of skepticism, as it lacks concrete evidence of an impending game announcement.
The Fan Theory Unveiled
On September 30, 2023, a Twitter user, known by the handle @GTAVInewz shared an intriguing image that put forth their bold prediction regarding the announcement of the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto series. According to their theory, Rockstar Games would unveil the game on October 3, 2023, drawing inspiration from a recent post by the American gaming powerhouse.
The groundwork for this theory was laid on September 29, 2023, when Rockstar Games posted an image featuring two iconic GTA Online characters, set against the backdrop of the Vinewood sign with a moon hovering in the background. In the eyes of the astute fan, this image contained subtle hints. They suggested that the conspicuous “VI” in the image was a reference to “Vice City,” one of the beloved locales in the Grand Theft Auto universe. Furthermore, the phase of the moon depicted in the image coincided with October 3, 2023, in the real world, lending credence to their prediction.
