As we've alluded to previously the hunger from Rockstar Games' fans is absolutely insatiable.
After all, why would the GTA Online Forums have a 156-page long thread discussing potential leaks and more if there was an appetite from the most hardcore fans to see the game make a return 6 years after the launch of GTA 5.
Over the last few months, it also became increasingly difficult to track where Rockstar's next priorities lie.
In between a potential PC port ofRed Dead Redemption 2and not to mention a seemingly never-ending stream of 'leaks' and hints towards a potential Bully 2 release, it's hard to say.
More so when Rockstar is notorious for keeping things in house.
But as with all companies, some details do leak, and occasionally one of the most obvious ways is through retailer listings.
We've seen that this week with The Last of Us Part 2 confirming four separate editions of the game will be available at launch. That same information leaked earlier this year.
With that being said, let's get back to the topic at hand and GTA 6.
When will GTA 6 release?
12000+ VOTES SO FAR
- GTA 6 Release date, map size, female character 'leak' teases next Grand Theft Auto
More recently fans on the GTA 6 subreddit spotted that an Austrian retailer, named Gameware, listed various PS4, Xbox One and PC listings for GTA 6.
If that wasn't enough to send fans doolally, it was also listed with having a 2020 release date.
Unfortunately, that latter detail should send alarm bells for fans.
As much as we would LOVE to see a new cross-gen Grand Theft Auto game that comes to both PS4, Xbox One AND PS5, Xbox Scarlett, the fact is it's fanciful.
Rockstar almost always signpost their releases ahead of time and if the game was genuinely coming next year, we would have heard about it by now.
Those might recall that the GTA 5 trailer released a good year before GTA 5 actually came to consoles.
In all likelihood, these listings on Gameware are nothing more than placeholders. Though why they're taking money for pre-orders on something that might not be announced for another year (or more) is beyond us.
GTA 6 Rumours, Leaks and News
In the more immediate future fans could find solace in a recent GTA 6 leak that's teasing a fountain of details such as the release date, map size and a potential female lead character.
Other details include suggestions that the game could have more accessible locations, with players able to enter buildings such as fast-food restaurants, gas stations, malls and even police stations.
We can already picture some Breaking Bad style cutscenes in a fast food joint or a mission in a police station that mimics the first Terminator movie.
Again, that's just us dreaming though.
It's also suggested that the game will be set across two main cities: Las Venturas (based on Las Vegas) and San Fierro (based on San Francisco).
Like all leaks, they need to be taken with dollops of salt, because as we alluded to, in the beginning, Rockstar runs a very tight ship.
But it's also worth considering that some leaks do in fact turn out to be real, the leaked Red Dead Redemption 2 map being the best example having come two years before Rockstar's release.
So be sceptical, but also be mindful that even the most ludicrous leak years out from a games actual launch could have legs.
