A dataminer has claimed that an announcement for Grand Theft Auto 6 could be imminent after uncovering what could be a teaser image for the game in the source code for the Rockstar Games Launcher.
The dataminer, who goes by the name of Mr. Leak, found the images buried within the source code of the GTA 5 site. One of the images features the text “GTA VI Coming Soon,” while another appears to show the game’s logo.
The image, which has since been removed from the launcher, shows a map of what appears to be the United States, with the text "GTAVI" superimposed over it.
While it’s possible that the images could be placeholders or even fake, the fact that they were found on the official website lends them some credence.
This discovery has led to speculation that an announcement for the long-awaited sequel to Grand Theft Auto 5 could be imminent, with the game potentially being set in Vice City or another location in the United States.
While this is all just speculation at this point, it's worth noting that Rockstar Games has been teasing a new game announcement for some time now. Of course, even if the images are real, it doesn’t necessarily mean that an announcement is imminent. It’s possible that the marketing material was put in place ahead of time in preparation for a later announcement.
In December, the company released a new logo for the Rockstar Games Launcher, which many believe was hinting at a new game announcement.
And earlier this year, a former Rockstar employee claimed that the company was working on "several unannounced projects", one of which is believed to be Grand Theft Auto 6.
So, while we don't have confirmation of anything just yet, it seems increasingly likely that we could see an announcement for Grand Theft Auto 6 in the near future. Still, it’s exciting to think that we could be getting closer to a reveal for one of the most anticipated games of the decade. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
