GTA 6 is a legendary game that has been talked about on the Internet since time immemorial. Okay, I’m just kidding, but it’s safe to say that people started talking about it right after the hype surrounding GTA 5 subsided. The game has been in the rumor mill for most of the past generation, and we finally got confirmation of the game’s existence in 2021/2022.
GTA 6 KEEPS BEING A TARGET OF LEAKS
The confirmation was followed by one of the biggest leaks in the history of the video game industry. Hackers invaded Take-Two’s servers and managed to leak a huge amount of GTA 6 content in development. Thanks to these leaks, we’ve seen the first solid evidence of the game’s existence and some interesting details, such as a new female protagonist, Lucia. Rumors now indicate that the game will premiere in May. Ahead of the official announcement, new leaks have emerged that reveal some interesting details about the game’s plot.
Back last year, a massive wave of leaks revealed the two main characters, Jason and Lucia. According to rumors, these two will experience some kind of Bonnie and Clyde-style adventure in the game. Other than that, we didn’t get many details about the game’s plot. Rumors have indicated that the game will return to Vice City, which in the game is a vision of Miami. In addition, the game’s action is rumored to take place in the 1990s, rather than in the present day as in the recent games.
THE GTA 6’S ERA MAY HAVE BEEN REVEALED
If we go back to GTA Vice City and San Andreas, the 3D games took place in the 1980s and 1990s, respectively. However, with the release of GTA 4 and GTA 5, Rockstar decided to bring the story to the present day. Based on that, we expected that the action of GTA 6 will also take place in our days. But maybe it is not true, and new leaked information corresponds to some old rumors about the game.
A new leak from GTA6 published on Twitter suggests that the game’s action will take place in the late ’90s and early ’00s. The account showed many new clips from the development of GTA 6. This is a continuation of a massive leak from last year, when it was revealed that the main characters would return to Vice City. The latest leaked detail seems to point to the era of the game. The Guide discovered this information by analyzing the cost of cigarettes in the game. Yes, it may seem a little strange, but we all know how Rockstar pays attention to detail.
AN UNUSUAL DISCOVER
Cigarettes in the game cost $4.10. Considering inflation and the cost of cigarettes in years past, this indicates that the game is from the 1990-2000 era. We know it’s not a confirmation but a guess, but it’s better than nothing. It’s consistent with old rumors that indicated the game had a long session in the past. It’s worth noting that we’re not giving up on the present tense part of the campaign.
GTA 5 has set some standards with a very good application of the present tense, and we don’t know if fans will easily leave them behind. With that in mind, we wouldn’t be surprised if the action of GTA 6 starts in the past, but with a big break to get to the present tense. That’s a common event in a revenge story, right?
THE GAME WILL BRING AN IMPROVED AI
In related news, we also received another leak from Twitter. This leaked footage claims to show how police officers will pull out guns to fight enemies. The 51-second clip shows a police officer in a Vice City uniform firing a service carbine at Lucia from different angles. The policeman makes a horizontal back and forth trajectory as he tries to attack the main character. From a standing position, the policeman gradually crouches, kneels, crouches and stands up again. It is worth noting that the AI of the policeman changes and takes into account the distance to the enemy.
The cops try to hide as they approach Lucia and then return to normal once they are safe from her. If this is indeed from GTA 6, then we are seeing huge progress in the AI’s behavior in the game. This is the kind of progress we need to see in new games.
We’ll be covering most of the details of GTA 6’s upcoming release here and in our gaming focus. So if you like games, feel free to stop by!
