It feels as though we have been talking about Grand Theft Auto 6 for years, and for the matter of the fact, we actually have been at this point.
The developers have actually not even called it GTA 6 yet, only going far as saying that they are 'pleased to confirm that active development of the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well under way' in February last year.
GTA 5 is approaching its tenth anniversary later this year, and fans of the series are eager to see what is coming next.
The fifth installment in the franchise is still very popular though, with millions of people playing its online mode every month.
And it appears that Rockstar may actually use the well-loved game to tease its next one.
According to a reliable Rockstar Games insider and leaker, an announcement for GTA 6 looks to be coming a lot sooner than we think.
In a post on the GTA forums, leaker Tez2 said that Rockstar could be preparing to update excited fans about the progress of GTA 6 this summer.
"I feel like the next time we could receive some news or an update is around June or July. Likely the latter," he said.
"If Rockstar were to tease anything GTA6 related within GTA Online around September or October, it has to be included with the Summer update. And Rockstar is very aware of us dataminers."
The industry insider teased that Rockstar could actually use the tenth anniversary of GTA Online, 1 October 2023, to tease their upcoming project.
He noted how Rockstar used GTA Online to tease Red Dead Redemption 2 before it released in 2018, and suggested they could do something similar with GTA 6.
In case you missed the massive news from last year, we already know quite a bit about GTA 6 after footage was leaked online alongside source code and a bunch of screenshots.
Fans of the series got to see gameplay footage of a protagonist called Luciana on the 'Vice City' Metro.
Rockstar quickly responded saying that it was 'extremely disappointed' that details from one of their upcoming games was shared in such a way.
They added that they would update fans with a proper introduction to their next game 'when it is ready'.
