gta 6 rumors

Rumors continue to swirl about Grand Theft Auto 6, and we’ve got everything we know about Rockstar’s next entry into the franchise, including possible release date, location, rumors, leaks, and more.

Official Grand Theft Auto 6 news is practically non-existent, much to fans’ frustration. It’s been a mind-boggling eight years since GTA V came out, and this is now the longest gap between the release of Grand Theft Auto games.

The success of GTA Online, and its base game, has been a huge factor in our wait for GTA 6 as the title has sold 140 million copies worldwide and rising. But the time is going to come when Rockstar is going to shake the world with the reveal of their latest sandbox playground.

Until then, we have a round-up of all the latest speculation and information we have so far.

GTA 6 release date

While the original PlayStation 2 GTA games, which could be released as a Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy, were released a year apart, fans waited an agonizing six years between GTA 4 and GTA 5.

We are now going on eight years since the last games in the series, and there has been no official word from Rockstar regarding the next iteration in the storied franchise.

Job listings and domain names have captured the imagination of GTA fans, but don’t get your hopes up too soon, as one leaker claimed Rockstar internally have GTA 6 set for a late 2023 release.

Now, prominent leaker Tom Henderson has shed some more light on when we may see GTA 6, and if you’re hoping it’s soon, you may be disappointed. In a June 27 YouTube video, Henderson said that we may not see the next GTA game until 2024 or 2025.

GTA 6 map & setting

One of the most exciting propositions regarding a new GTA game is its setting. The franchise has already set foot in London, and unofficially explored New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas.

Similar to how GTA 5 revisited old ground, it seems that GTA 6 is set to do the same. Rockstar’s take on Miami seems bound for the series once more as Vice City is being touted as the setting for GTA 6.

After an image leaked in 2018 showing what appeared to be an updated Vice City, another picture surfaced online in May 2021, including new locations south of the city with roads twisting through the countryside.

Following this map leak, another image surfaced online that allowed for comparison between the “leaked” map and Los Santos. This map is considerably smaller than GTA V’s, but there’s no way of confirming its authenticity.

Vice City was a tremendous setting and GTA positively thrived in its stylish 80’s aesthetic. Vibing synth beats and legendary songs were the perfect backdrops for a Scarface-inspired, drug-fuelled city.

Now, 18 years later, we may get to return to the neon nightlife. Given how far we’ve come technologically, Rockstar’s vision of a seedy Miami could be utterly incredible, and it’s something we’d love to see.

When will GTA 6 be revealed?

It’s almost impossible to hazard a guess for when GTA 6 will be revealed, but a recent leak and following job posting appear to tease how.

Grand Theft Auto fans were hoping to see either a reveal or an announcement at E3 2021 but had no luck. Instead, following Fortnite and Warzone’s success with creating live in-game events, a recent leak suggests that GTA 6 will be revealed inside GTA Online.

The leak claimed that GTA Online would be “receiving 4 large updates leading into the GTA 6 Marketing Campaign, which will take place over live events.” It’s no surprise that Rockstar Games would want to join in on this trend, especially with the continuing popularity of GTA Online.

Now, a recent Rockstar job listing appears to confirm this leak. Rockstar were looking for a ‘Live Operations Coordinator who would “be responsible for executing all in-game marketing campaigns for Red Dead Online and Grand Theft Auto Online.”

Of course, there’s no guarantee that the two are related, but it’s far from impossible for GTA 6 to be revealed through a live event.

Unofficial GTA 6 leaks and teases

As we’ve said, because all the information about GTA 6 is so exceedingly threadbare, it means that any snippet of a leak becomes huge for the fans.

So far we’ve learned that there is a new GTA 6 patent leak suggesting Rockstar wants the best NPCs ever. Lots of undercover work from desperate fans led to the discovery of a patent called the “System And Method For Virtual Navigation In A Gaming Environment.” It’s basically a set of extremely complex algorithms to make the game’s city more alive than ever with fully independent NPCs.

Rockstar’s desire to innovate and defy conventional boundaries could also be about to go one step further in GTA 6 too. After having three playable protagonists in GTA 5, a leaker has claimed that GTA 6 will have a female main character.

As for gameplay, Tom Henderson also suggested that you’ll be able to purchase cryptocurrency in GTA 6. This ties in with the speculation that GTA won’t return to a 1980s setting and will be modern.

Other rumors claim that the long-awaited sequel to Bully was canned allegedly due to GTA 6. This would suggest that GTA 6 has spent a good amount of time in development.

Just to reiterate, this information is all leaks and speculation, but it could be a great indicator of some of the awesome stuff that Grand Theft Auto fans could have to look forward to.

Once Rockstar finally ceases its hush-hush attitude towards GTA 6, then we’ll be able to bring you 100% accurate information about Rockstar’s latest project(s).

How to complete TOTY Honourable Mentions Lautaro Martinez SBC in FIFA 22

Lautaro Martinez is a fantastic ST in FIFA 22, and FUT players are going to want to complete his TOTY Honourable Mentions SBC.

Martinez Honourable Mentions SBC

Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez has received an Honourable Mentions SBC to go along with the 15 players included in the promo’s squad. Here’s how you can complete the Lautaro Martinez FIFA 22 TOTY Honourable Mentions SBC.

The Honourable Mentions promo is set to accompany the TOTY by highlighting incredible players that just missed the cut. Cristiano Ronaldo joins the TOTY as the 12th Man, while 15 players make up the Honourable Mentions squad.

In addition to these 15 players, FUT fans will have the chance to snap up more Honourable Mentions via Objectives and SBCs. Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez is one of the players up for grabs.

Ultimate Team players will be required to submit three squads to get their hands on this well-rounded ST, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

Martinez may lack the ability to set up your forward players as a shoot-first striker but he’ll certainly bag a lot of goals thanks to his impressive finishing stats and dynamic feel in-game. Martinez also benefits from 4* skills and 4* weak foot which adds to his bag of tricks.

Considering the price, players are getting a top-tier finisher at fair value. His agility and dribbling will not let you down. However, his Serie A allegiance makes him difficult to fit into meta squads if you don’t also use some Argentine players.

To complete this SBC players will need to give up three squads: Tactical Emulation, Argentina, and Serie A TIM. With a value of around 236,000 coins, Martinez should be well within reach for the majority of Ultimate Team players. This FIFA 22 SBC is a must for Serie A enthusiasts.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.

  • # of players from Inter Milan: Min 1
  • # of TOTW players: Min 1
