If you have been on the Internet at some time in recent hours you have probably seen an alleged message from Grand Theft Auto V that ensures that Grand Theft Auto VI or GTA VI is on its way (there is even a topic on our website here). If you thought it was an official announcement, we have some bad news: Rockstar has already confirmed that it is false.
Through Twitter, a player said that this message appeared and contacted the company to know what it was. Almost immediately, the company responded that it is false, so he made it clear that it is not an official message.
“This is a hoax made with the use of mods, and not an official message or statement from Rockstar Games,” commented the company.
This message appeared to several players of Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, which can be modified without much problem. So, the most accepted theory is that some modder found a way to exploit the messaging system of Rockstar Social Club for this message to appear in the game. That said, the real causes are unknown.
Now, that this message turns out to be false does not mean that we will never see a new GTA VI. In fact, if we take into account the overall success of Grand Theft Auto V it is likely that its development is already among Rockstar’s plans. However, it seems difficult to come soon, so we recommend you to better expect the debut of Red Dead Redemption 2, a new Rockstar game that will come this year.
Grand Theft Auto V is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
