We’ve been asking where the heck GTA 6 has been for a while now, and thanks to some GTA 6 leaked details we’ve had our very first taste of what to expect. The details in question have done the rounds across the net and include a very interesting list of what’s to come in the next GTA instalment.
So what are the GTA 6 leaked details, and where did they come from?
So glad you asked! The GTA 6 leaked details were provided by a Reddior under the alias of JackOLantern1982 in the form a bullet-pointed list, with the list containing claims that it’s going to span over several decades, that it’ll have partial Vice City visits and that an up and coming drug cartel will be where deals are going to be made. Keep reading to check out the whole list of speculated info surrounding GTA 6.
After you’ve scrolled through the GTA 6 leaked details list, it’s also worth knowing that the information provided was not from a single source. The post from JackoLantern1982 was further corroborated in other leaks such as the one provided by Redditor gfk53.
Here”s everything JackoLantern1982 listed about the GTA 6 leaked details:
”I have two friends who are very reliable and have worked for places such as Kotaku and PC Gamer. They relayed this information to me. I also have a very dear friend who works for Rockstar, he won’t confirm the details, but he won’t deny them either. Normally, if something is not true, he’ll flat out deny, but here he just laughed and said “you know I can’t talk about that stuff bro” sooooooo 🙂 I think we’re gold boys!
The next GTA title has been in development since 2012 (1 year before GTA 5 launched). Production didn’t actually pick up properly until mid 2015. Even then it was on ice while the teams focused on RDR2.
It’s another Rockstar Worldwide Production, not just one or two studios, but all.
Codename is PROJECT AMERICAS.
Set in both Vice City and a new fictional location based on Rio de Janeiro, with some linear missions taking place in Liberty City (not open world), think Ludendorff in GTAV. Also been recently hearing about Cuba but I ain’t sure?
Game will balance realism and arcade. WON’T be as realistic as RDR2.
One playable protagonist this time. Male, not female, despite supposed leaks.
Set in 1970s-1980s.
You play as an up and coming drug lord-wannabe named “Ricardo”. Another key character called “Kacey” is a part of the narrative. You start off as a grunt doing runs as a cocaine smuggler from Vice City to the new large South American area (and visa versa?) before making connections with big time drug lords and making your way up. Multiple cities. There will also be a GIANT prison which will play a part in the game.
Will feature a “CHAPTER” system similar to a Tarantino flick or RDR2.
Weather is a heavy focus. Hurricanes, floods, etc.
Buildings change over the eras, vehicles too. This causes headaches apparently but they managed to nail a pipeline and get it working. So older, rare classic cars get more expensive as time progresses etc. Full economy. Next level.
HEAVILY inspired by Netflix’s Narcos.
They want to have an incredible 70s/80s soundtrack, but jury is still out on that one.
A younger Martin Madrazo will make an appearance as will his father who is a big drug lord at the time. You do some missions for the Madrazo family involving hits on other gangs.
Drug empire building is a mechanic similar to Vice City Stories but bigger. MUCH bigger. Think the GTAOnline system and dial it up to 10. There you have it.
You can only have weapons on your person. No arsenal in your back pocket. Think RDR2 and Max Payne 3.
Your personal vehicle (similar to GTA5 but can now change it) will be like your horse saddle in RDR2. All your equipment is stored in the trunk. Similar to LA Noire. You also store your body armour in the car. If you wear it, it appears, no longer just an invisible thing lol.
There will be tons of subtitle reading. Think Max Payne 3 amounts. Because the characters speak the language they’re native to. Very immersive. Like watching an episode of Narcos. Whenever you’re in South America, don’t expect to hear much English. Vice City however is a mix of everything. Mostly English though.
Last bit of narrative info, it will discuss topics such as HIV and the immigration crisis of the time. A fictional version of Fidel Castro etc. Though I’ll be PISSED if our protagonist dies from AIDS or some shit.
Next Gen only. Not PS4/XB1.
Game is now their primary focus, alongside another title (which I believe to be Bully 2).
Game is still in Pre-Alpha so names, locations, details could and probably will change.
No ETA on a release date.”
Further corroborating the GTA 6 leaked details
The resources then continue as GTA 6 leaked details emerged from Fireden, corroborating the above list even further.
”- The game is set back in Liberty City, modern day.
– The plot in the beginning of the game is reminiscent of The Wire:
– Police officers are trying to crack down a gang/drug ring based around a night club.
– There are four main characters, two police and two gang members
– The plot then twists and turns and goes to “upstate New York”, where it becomes more crime noir, think “Ozark” and “Breaking Bad”
– it will have twice the amount of dialogue as GTA5
– and a really crazy plot twist
– the main storyline splits after a while, the criminal side has sort of a sandbox build-a-crime-empire thing (Fallout 4 meets the Sims), while the police side is more of a traditional action game with a little twist of LA Noire
– my project is supposed to be finished in early 2021, so earliest release is holiday 2021, but I would guess later. 2022 or 2023”
Make of it what you will, but these GTA 6 leaked details are too enticing to simply ignore. Time will tell whether these claims hold any authenticity, and until that you’ll want to remain patient. If the claim about the ‘2022 or 2023’ end up being correct we have a long time to wait!
