Rockstar Games hasn’t officially confirmed that a new addition to the Grand Theft Auto series is in the works, but with GTA 5 being one of the most lucrative video games in history, it’s hard to imagine a new game isn’t happening. As long as we have hope we’ll never stop hunting for clues about GTA 6, and one Reddit user has a whole theory based on the latest update to GTA Online.
As spotted by Dexerto, a Reddit user by the name of TheFirmWare took to the website to share their very, very in-depth analysis of the latest GTAO update, and why they believe it’s giving away the release date of Grand Theft Auto 6.
In the post, TheFirmWare writes about the following image taken inside the GTAO casino, pointing out that the word “service” is seemingly split into two words.
They write: “In a previous post..[it was]…pointed out that the word ‘Service’ on the right wall was split into SER on top and VICE on the bottom, and noted that it was odd considering Rockstar could’ve adjusted the font size to avoid splitting the word in two.
“On the left side of the wall we can see DIAMOND written on top, and 510 on the bottom. If we put the bottom portions together we get ‘510 VICE’.”
The user goes on to speculate that this could be a date, and even more interestingly, that it could be the date of GTA 6’s release.
They continue: “Now, it could mean a lot of things, one of which is 5th of October. Someone mentioned in the comments that they heard Madam Nazar (added in the new update) saying ‘I see numbers, 5, 1, 0, 2, 0’. If we merge this with the previous finding, we get 5th October 2020 or 5/10/2020.”
The user goes on to point out that recent Rockstar trailers could also evidence an upcoming announcing. They point out that “GTA 5 Trailer 1 was released 2/11/2011, GTA 5 Trailer 2 was released 14/11/2012, RDR2 Trailer 1 was released 20/10/2016, RDR2 Trailer 2 was released 28/09/2017.”
From the way Rockstar’s worked in the past, a October 5 2020 date could be likely for a trailer, if not a full game drop.
It’s an interesting theory and it deserves a lot more love on Reddit than it’s currently getting. What’s your opinion on the theory?
