GTA 6 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated releases in the game, and while Rockstar has confirmed that the game is currently in development, details are still scant. This article is an analysis and consolidation of everything we know about GTA 6 so far, including leaks and rumors.
*We won't be linking directly to any leaked footage, especially considering this is all in development. What we've done is used the information we've seen from these leaks and combined it with other rumors to paint a clearer picture of what GTA 6 will be at launch.
There have been many other GTA 6 leaks surrounding the game, and fans of the series have found numerous job listings from Rockstar North, starting with character costume and wardrobe stylists.
More recently, fans of the franchise have speculated that a Rockstar lot has leaked GTA 6 screenshots into GTA Online via a series of new shirts added in a recent update. On June 25, two alleged leaks went viral on Twitter, both claiming that GTA 6's story will take place in Cuba, Colombia, and Miami. One of the leakers claims the game will be set in 2022 or 2023. Leaker "SaycheeseDGTL" claims to have obtained information from "Rockstar Games Insider". Another leak from user "RapTV" says the game will be released "as soon as 2023." Of course, while these leaks blew up online, they're still unconfirmed, so fans should view the information presented with a healthy dose of skepticism.
Sorry to tell you that only a few of the leaks are true. Most of the GTA6 leaks uploaded on the Internet are made by the players themselves, not leaks of the official game. Many players have further analyzed these leaks. For details, you can click on the video below to check.

While some rumors suggest that the GTA 6 story is complete, there has been a lot of speculation about the number of playable characters in GTA 6. A historic GTA 6 leak suggests that the game will have two main characters, a man and a woman and that the story will have a Bonnie and Clyde-like vibe. This suggests the story will follow a couple who flee authorities after a string of GTA-sounding heists. It will also allow the game to use the character-switching mechanic introduced in GTA V.
Rockstar Games has yet to confirm a GTA 6 release date. That hasn't stopped Internet sleuths from making some educated guesses. Rumors that GTA 6 will be released in 2025 have been corroborated by multiple sources as part of a larger stream of information that suggests that GTA 6 will be set in modern-day Vice City. It's always wise to be cautious with such speculation, but with new GTA 6 leaks seemingly confirming the modernized Vice City setting, perhaps a release sometime in 2025 is on point.
GTA 6 may still be a long way off, but that hasn't stopped it from being at the top of many players' most anticipated games lists. That's likely due to the success of its predecessor, which topped the sales charts for the better part of a decade. Given that GTA 6 doesn't have a confirmed release date yet, we don't have much official information to refer to. But we do know it's in development, having been officially announced earlier this year. The first announcement for GTA 6 came in February 2022, when Rockstar Games sneaked out the news that GTA 6 was a "work in progress" as part of a wider GTA 5 and GTA Online community update. Speaking of Grand Theft Auto 6 being "actively developed," Rockstar said: "On behalf of our entire team, we thank you all for your support and can't wait to move into the future with you!"
However, shortly after the announcement, Rockstar was hit with a slew of leaks related to GTA 6. This includes pre-alpha development footage that may offer glimpses into the game's background. While a wealth of information about GTA 6 has been uncovered in the leak, it remains to be seen what the final full release of the game will be. There are still some mysteries here, including a (possible) 2024 release date, and the question of who the protagonist/protagonists are. GTA 6 has been officially announced and subsequently leaked in a rather spectacular fashion. In the most high-profile data breach in the gaming industry, more than an hour of GTA 6 development video was posted online in September by an anonymous user who claimed to have obtained it via internal channels on Rockstar Slack. At the time, Rockstar said it didn't expect the event to have any long-term impact on its development timeline. In February, we got confirmation from Rockstar Games that "active development is underway on the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto franchise" - a small note at the bottom of the GTA 5 Community Update.
On September 18, an unprecedented GTA 6 leak resulted in more than 90 videos and screenshots from an early in-development alpha build that surfaced online. Rockstar has acknowledged and verified the hack and is working to remove the leaked material from the internet. Naturally, the first look at GTA 6 has revealed some new details about the game--including information on GTA 6's locations, characters, and gameplay. So read on to find out everything you need to know about GTA 6 so far.
Interestingly, fans are sure that GTA 6's map will be much larger than GTA 5's. Using leaked GTA 6 coordinates, GTA 6 fans are trying to map the map itself and later started using Google to stitch the GTA 6 map together. While the final GTA 6 map has yet to be shown, there are some indications in the leaked video and screens that the game space extends beyond the confines of Vice City. Just as Rockstar expanded Los Santos between GTA: San Andreas and GTA V, some leaked screenshots appear to show a whole new area of Vice City. As you know, Vice City itself is roughly based on Miami, and there is speculation that GTA 6 will push further south into the Everglades (a swamp) and the Florida Keys (a string of tropical islands). Now, the "Gator Keys" are referenced as part of the radio broadcast in the original GTA: Vice City, but the location was never revealed in the game. Expect GTA 6 maps to contain a mix of environment types, if the screenshots are any indication of what we think they are.
It's been rumored for months that Rockstar is working on its first GTA 6 heroine -- at least, the series' first in the 3D era. In an early dev video, we get to see two new playable GTA 6 characters. The characters' development titles are Jason and Lucia, and it looks like the character-switching system in GTA 5 is returning in some capacity. A leaked clip shows the two robbing a restaurant together, with the player controlling one of the characters while the other is driven by an AI. In another clip, we see a character swap--albeit it's almost instantaneous, rather than a slow perspective change like in GTA V.
