As anticipation for Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) continues to grow, fans become increasingly impatient with Rockstar Games for their silence on the project. It’s been years since any official information was shared, and if not for a major cyber leak back in September, we would still be left in the dark. The leak exposed footage, source code, and screenshots of the highly-anticipated game. Despite the breach, Rockstar assured fans that development would proceed as planned.
With the full reveal potentially months or even years away, fans have been keeping themselves busy by digging into the latest insider information, leaks, and rumours surrounding the game.
One significant detail from the GTA leak was the suggestion that the game would be set in Vice City. This inspired YouTuber XXII to create their own version of the game using Unreal Engine 5, even expanding it to include Liberty City and Rio de Janeiro. The level of detail in XXII’s project is astounding, with many mistaking it for an official GTA project by Rockstar Games.

Fans were quick to praise XXII’s work, with one commenter stating, “Man, you gotta make a game of this with details, physics – and I’ll pay 100 bucks for it. Others will too.”
Although Rockstar has yet to announce a release date for GTA 6, we know the project is currently in development. The company has even reallocated resources from other projects, like Red Dead Online, to focus solely on GTA 6, aiming to make more progress while avoiding the infamous “crunch” culture often associated with video game studios.
