Rockstar employee leaks “unannounced titles” as GTA 6 rumors swirl

Fans are speculating about new Rockstar games that may be in the works that isn’t GTA 6.

Grand Theft Auto’s rabid fanbase has discovered more clues hinting towards GTA 6, after spotting some interesting activity revolving around “unannounced titles” on a Rockstar employee’s LinkedIn page.

Despite GTA 5 being released over seven years ago, we’ve yet to have any confirmation from Rockstar Games about the existence of its sequel.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped fans of the Grand Theft Auto franchise from searching and theorizing about possible announcements. A popular theory among the community is the idea that we could see the official reveal for the game during Super Bowl 55 on February 7, although that remains a rumor.

The latest clue in their search for information comes from the LinkedIn page of Rockstar Leeds Senior Designer Ian Gander. According to his profile, during his 10-year spell at the company, he’s worked on both GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2.

His profile says that in the past he has worked on the “design and implementation of various missions and gameplay features,” on both GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2, which means he likely had a hand in the story modes we’ve enjoyed in both games.

What’s extremely interesting about his profile though is what is written underneath, which states he’s worked on “unannounced titles” where are “TBC,” or “to be confirmed.”

Unsurprisingly, this sent fans into a frenzy of speculation, with many believing it could mean GTA 6, while others suggest that it points to Rockstar working on other titles too, such as the long-rumoured Bully sequel.

Bully, Rockstar Games

The fact that it mentions “titles” seems to indicate that Rockstar are working on multiple games at once, which would be surprising considering how long fans of the developers usually have to wait for new titles.

While it’s possible that they could be linked to new IPs, GTA 6 and Bully 2 do seem the most likely candidates for new titles, with Grand Theft Auto standing as one of the most popular franchises in gaming, while Bully hasn’t received a sequel despite releasing in 2006.

Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long for official news of what Rockstar is working on, although whether we actually see an official GTA 6 confirmation during Super Bowl 55 on February 7 remains to be seen.

The Los Santos Tuners update introduced the LS Car Meet, and this week players can get the Karin Calico GTF free as the GTA Online’s Prize Ride January 20 vehicle.

While players are enjoying The Contract update, the Los Santos Tuners update was certainly up there with the Cayo Perico update in terms of an important content drop for GTA Online. Many players love to earn lots of money, buy amazing, fast cars, mod them how they see fit, and parade them around the city.

As well as adding new cars and collectibles, the update also welcomed a fun new challenge for players to complete. GTA Online’s Prize Ride can be obtained by meeting a certain requirement, and we’ll detail everything below.

To get the Calico GTF, you’ll need to win a Pursuit Race every day for five days in a row to complete the Prize Ride challenge.

Each week, players can unlock a new vehicle for free at the LS Car Meet. From January 20, players will be able to get their hands on this awesome car, but only until January 27, 2022.

That’s the simple condition you will need to meet to win the car for yourself. Given that it normally costs $1,995,000, it’s definitely worth trying to get!

Here’s Rockstar’s official description of the Calico GTF:

Ah, the 90’s. Out of a chaotic fusion of grunge, dial-up, and third-wave feminism came the Karin Calico GTF, a car that took a little bit of everything and made something new: muscle heritage, rally chops, street racer cred. Looks like it’s time to drop the sticky VHS and curtain your hair, homeskillet: you’ve got some homework to do.

With GTA 6 rumored to be in development hell, the GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition out and not doing well, and the GTA V Enhanced and Expanded Remaster nearly here, the franchise has a lot on its plate.

Obey I-Wagen in GTA Online

A new week means a new GTA Online update, and January 20’s patch has added another new vehicle in the I-Wagen, offers the Drift Tampa as the new podium reward vehicle, and has major discounts and bonuses.

2022 is kicking off with a bang, with GTA Online offering players plenty of free content after the huge Contract DLC update.

The series as a whole is in an interesting place right now as the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S re-release is due in early 2022, GTA 6 is apparently stuck in development hell, and the GTA Trilogy has had a tough time with players lamenting countless glitches that have made the game the lowest-rated Metacritic title ever.

However, one element of the franchise that remains steadfast is GTA Online as Rockstar keeps pumping it full of changes and content to maintain its status as an absolute moneymaking success for the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

GTA players beg Rockstar to finally fix “cardboard” body armor

GTA Online players are calling for the developers to make some major changes to the game’s ‘cardboard’ body armor.

Published

GTA Online players are frustrated with the state of body armor in the game, criticizing it for being like “cardboard” and are calling for the developers to make some major changes.

GTA Online features a plethora of different activities for you to try out. You can even battle other players with a wide selection of powerful weapons. However, your opponents can also use these guns to take you out.

One way of defending yourself is purchasing body armor to lessen the damage done to you by bullets. While this sounds ideal, players have complained that this item doesn’t offer much protection.

Body armor in GTA 5

Reddit user ‘codmike86’ made a post criticizing the body armor in the GTA Online subreddit. Their main complaint was that the item is “as tough as cardboard” when this game is almost a decade old.

“There’s no point in wearing body armor at all if it takes is 3 bullets,” wrote the Redditor. “Can’t even stack the light armor when purchasing it.” Many other players shared this sentiment in the comments.

“The thing that annoys me is that fall damage or getting hit by vehicles eats the armor bar because it makes no sense,” commented one frustrated user. “I only use it before gunfights now.”

Now, players are calling for Rockstar Games to make some major changes to the in-game body armor. They want the item to be able to endure more gunfire, making it worth the purchase.

Some users jokingly stated that the NPCs are more resistant against gunfire than body armor. “I want the nanolaminate energy-shielded binco shirts the NPCs all have that allow them to inhale 15-20 bullets to the chest,” one commenter sarcastically stated.

At the time of writing, Rockstar Games haven’t announced any upcoming changes to the body armor in GTA Online. So, players will need to take cover in order to avoid taking too much damage.
