GTA 6 trends after fake announcement “leaks” reach absurd new levels

GTA 6 trends

Fans anticipating Rockstar Games to finally share the first official look at GTA 6 were left disappointed, once again, after a viral “leak” ended up being just a creative fake.

For years now, GTA fans have been eager for the next installment in the GTA series, having had just about enough of San Andreas and longing for a change of scenery.

Although Rockstar did reveal that work on the next game was “well underway,” fans have yet to receive any official gameplay, images, or even a logo.

On May 13, fans thought they had a reason to get excited, as a leaked image suggested that a GTA 6 announcement was imminent – but just like so many others, it ended up being fake (albeit it was quite the prank).

Right on time straight from Sprinklr! R* has just posted GTAO event 28 minutes ago at 15HR (3:00PM). The Sprinklr leak appears to be real now. It also mentions hashtag GTA VI with attachment is scheduled to be posted at the same time tomorrow. HOPEFULLY it is true!!! #GTA6 #GTAVI pic.twitter.com/KkMpq3dKEO

Fake GTA 6 “leaks” are getting wild

Amusingly, the reason some fans suspected a reveal could be coming was due to a “leaked” image claiming to be from a Rockstar Games social media management service.

The leaked photo, taken with a cell phone, showed a supposed Rockstar Sprinklr account with a “GTA VI” attachment scheduled for 3PM BST. However, the time came and went with no announcement.

Instead, Rockstar revealed a special Max Payne 3 soundtrack would be coming out later this year, dashing the hopes of fans whose misplaced hype had caused GTA 6 to trend on Twitter.

“Here is the awaited GTA 6 announcement, so hyped!” one user mocked following the Max Payne 3 reveal.

“Until I see an official trailer for #GTA6 BY ROCKSTAR. I will not believe anything I hear or read,” another fed up gamer posted. “It’s been 9 years of news of it being released.”

That didn’t stop the copium from flowing, however, as some even read into the Max Payne 3 soundtrack as somehow being a GTA 6 tease.

One fan even suggested that by linking to a Vice news story, the video game company was referencing Vice City – the Florida-based location where many think will next game will take place.

R* posted Max Payne 3 soundtrack newswire. They mentioned Vice with link to Vice dot com site. GTA 6 is long rumored taking place in reimagined Vice City. Coincidence? #GTA6 #VICE P.S I am so sorry GTA 6 announcement did not happen. The Sprinklr photo leak appeared to be fake. pic.twitter.com/ALRVumw0tp
