In recent weeks, certain ‘leaks’ and rumours concerning GTA 6 have surfaced and been propagated online by individuals who – quite honestly – don’t know better. From gargantuan file sizes to eye-watering prices, and from a map that encapsulates the entire GTA franchise to 8K gameplay leaks, we’ve seen it all in the last few weeks.
If there’s one thing that you should be doing, it’s remaining calm and evaluating the news that hits the airwaves. It really does work a lot better when you put your faith in trusted sources and you don’t believe every modded GTA V video that’s masquerading as the latest GTA 6 leak.
Face Value Is Becoming Worthless
Recently, the hottest ‘leak’ to hit the social media circles stated that GTA 6 will be 750 GB in size and it’ll have a story that lasts ‘at least’ 400 hours, which is laughable at best. It’s probably one of the most bizarre rumours we’ve ever heard about a game, and what’s worse, there are actually people taking that on board as gospel and spreading the news forth, far and wide.
Before that, a rumour that the game would cost $150 minimum spread like wildfire. What’s hilarious here is that the original claim that backed that statement was made without any solid source or further context, but it was enough to set the internet ablaze.
In the last few months, we’ve seen some ‘leakers’ claim that GTA 6 will feature one of the largest maps in gaming history, bringing together San Andreas, Liberty City, Vice City, and everything else imaginable onto one giant canvas. There are thousands of videos and pictures online claiming to be taken from the in-development title, but they’re almost always debunked by the most level-headed among us.
This isn’t anything new – these kinds of ‘leaks’ and rumours have been landing online and being circulated around for decades, but it’s getting much worse now because a) people are getting desperate for some solid GTA 6 news, and b) fake content is becoming a bit harder to judge, especially when said content is spread by the plague of ‘GTA 6 Leaks’ channels on Twitter, TikTok, and YouTube.
It’s a cash grab, folks – they just want clicks.
Stick to reputable sources, don’t take everything at face value, and just calm down – if our reports regarding GTA 6’s release window are anything to go by, it won’t be long until official news is here.
