A screenshot taken from the upcoming Grand Theft Auto 6 has sent fans into a frenzy after it was leaked online.
Even though a huge leak last year clearly indicated the game was in development, Rockstar Games confirmed the news in a GTA 5 Community Update last month, when it assured 'active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway'.
The developer hasn't divulged exactly when fans will be able to get their hands on the game, but the leak last year revealed development footage and source code, and now we have a screenshot to go along with it.
"This looks so good man," they added, basically making it impossible for Reddit users to resist hitting that 'see spoiler' button.
The image reveals a nighttime scene showing what looks to be a female playable character. She's walking around a fenced-off car park area in a city suburb, while a group of people stand chatting together to the left.
It's unclear exactly when the screenshot was obtained, but it reveals some impressive graphics that have left fans very excited about the game's release - whenever that may be.
Responding to the image, which has since been shared across the internet, one person wrote: "This game is going to be f**king insane."

Another agreed, responding: "[It's] genuinely gonna be a world event, the day the trailer drops will be crazy of course, but the day [the] game releases is basically going to be like humanity’s mini quarantine."
"Even by an unfinished game's standards, these graphics are honestly some of the best I've ever seen," one fan added, while another commented: "It feels like so real. Damn, i cant wait to play this game."
Rockstar acknowledged the excitement around the upcoming title when it shared its confirmation of the game last month, writing: "On behalf of our entire team, we thank you all for your support and cannot wait to step into the future with you!"
Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive, set a high bar for the title when he announced plans to 'set creative benchmarks for the series, our industry, and for all entertainment', but fans will just have to wait and see whether the developer manages to achieve its promises.
