The GTA 6 leaker discusses some leaks and rumors about Vice City, map size, etc.
Some of Tom Henderson’s recent GTA 6 leaks are less than desirable to hear for some GTA fans.
You should know that even the leaker (Tom Henderson) said they take all of the following with a grain of salt. There is no immediate evidence that this is happening, but it must be said that he has a good track record when it comes to the Battlefield leaks.
He’s best known for his leaks on Battlefield and not GTA 6, and all of that is second-hand information he’s getting from someone else. Unsurprisingly, some of these leaks and rumors will conflict with other popular GTA 6 leaks.
Some of the popular leaks from the known GTA 6 leak about the game
On June 27, 2019, Tom Henderson posted a video of the leaks and rumors he has heard regarding GTA 6. It is essential to reiterate that he has told everyone to take everything with a grain of salt.
Given that there is no official news on GTA 6 (and it doesn’t look like there will be any for a long time), leaks like this are all GTA fans need to discuss for the moment.
Vice City as place and period
The leaker also states that the game will be a modern GTA title, which would clash with other leakers claiming that the game takes place in an earlier period (such as with Project Americas).
This should line up with Rockstar’s cash cow, GTA Online, as it would allow developers to create more DLC for the game than if it were an earlier period.
He also states that Vice City will return in GTA 6, but the map won’t be as big as some fans might expect. This map will evolve when specific DLCs are added.
New playable characters
Supposedly there will be several playable characters in GTA 6. One of those characters will be a female, which has been leaked a lot in recent years (some supporting the idea, others knocking it down) . She will be smart and associated with technology (which also supports the rumors of the modern world).
Release Date, Rockstar and Employee Wellbeing
One of the reasons for the 2024-2025 release date isn’t because the game is very early in development. Rather, it’s because Rockstar apparently cares more about the well-being of its employees (they’ve been criticized for brutal crisis hours in the past).
This new policy would have been active for 15 to 16 months. Rockstar also doesn’t want to announce a release date unless they’re 100% sure they’ll hit it, which is why there’s no official announcement regarding GTA 6.
Current generation consoles and PCs
Like many other AAA titles, GTA 6 will only be available on the modern generation of consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X / S) and PC. Owners of older consoles will need to upgrade to the current generation or downgrade to PC if they want to play GTA 6.
Interestingly enough, there are many shortages associated with these current generation consoles. As a result, its player base is not as large as it should be. This could be another reason why Rockstar takes their time with GTA 6 (especially to maximize sales and marketing).
The success of GTA 5
It’s no secret that GTA 5 continues to sell massively, and that’s partly thanks to GTA Online. With the new extended and improved edition on the horizon, GTA 5 will likely continue to sell extremely well. It’s the best-selling game in the franchise, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.
Tom Henderson points out that the success of GTA 5 means the game will continue to receive some attention.
The last point is something most GTA fans could have deduced, as it doesn’t look like GTA 5 or GTA Online is stopping anytime soon. It wouldn’t make sense for Rockstar to give up the easy money, so fans shouldn’t expect GTA 6 anytime soon.
