If we already knew the release date of the next-gen version of GTA V and GTA Online, scheduled for November 11, nothing was known about the characteristics of this port. All Rockstar Games had been kind enough to communicate was that it won’t be a “simple portage“. Today, a leak informs us about this update, but also about GTA 6 release announced in GTA Online. In any case, this is indicated by a leak shared on Reddit which states that “GTA Online will receive 4 major updates related to the GTA 6 marketing campaign, which will take place during live events.“
Although this type of revelation is unprecedented for Rockstar Games, it is not surprising to see the studio riding the wave launched by others with success. This is particularly the case of Fortnite which started this trend with many revelations during in-game events in which players participate. Recently, even Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War was announced on Call of Duty Warzone during an online event. In that case, why would the release of GTA 6 not be announced in GTA Online? Of course, as for the GTA card 6, this information should be taken in the conditional as long as no official communication provides us with tangible elements.
