GTA Online players were left scratching their heads after a message from Rockstar showed that GTA 6 is coming out next year.
In fact, it wasn’t just one message – it was lots. They seemed to be popping up everywhere with the same message “GTA VI Coming 2019 – www.rockstargames.com”. It does seem like a very odd way to announce one of the most highly-anticipated games EVER, but after Bethseda’s Fallout 76 announcement on Twitch, it seems weird announcements are a bit of a trend right now.
As you can imagine, it was pretty exciting.
The message: “GTA VI Coming 2019” has been popping up all over the place. Sadly, we’re all going to have to chill out as it’s actually all a great big hoax.
Rockstar Support commented back to a Tweet enquiring about the announcement, saying: “This is a hoax made with the use of mods, and not an official message or statement from Rockstar Games.”
So no, Grand Theft Auto 6 will not be coming out next year, and all of this fuss comes from some evil b*stard who’s decided to get all in our heads.
Well, that’s pretty disappointing. But at least we know.
This comes after Rockstar released a brand-new teaser trailer for an expansion due to come out soon – a nightclub.
Yes, you can dance away alongside your online friends listening to four real-life musicians.
Artists Solomun, The Black Madonna, and Dixon shared the below trailer, and it looks like it could be coming as soon as July.
Rockstar then confirmed the news, saying: “the nightlife scene in Los Santos is getting a major upgrade”.
You’ll be able to set it up, design the interior, and even control staffing.
The press release said: “Management is honest work, a tidy way to keep income from your more seedy ventures with Disruption Logistics, The Open Road, SecuroServ and Free Trade Shipping Co. looking clean as fresh laundry.”
