Video game enthusiasts across the globe are in a state of heightened curiosity, following a recent Reddit leak that hinted at a major marketing campaign by Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games. The campaign, according to the leaked document, is slated for a Miami hotel building, where an advertisement is expected to be displayed for a full year, starting in late Summer 2023. If the document is genuine, it could mark the start of a new and exciting phase for one of the company’s “triple A” titles.
The information appeared on the popular subreddit ‘GamingLeaksAndRumors’ from a now-deleted account. The user posted a document, allegedly from Take-Two Interactive, outlining this extensive marketing plan. The authenticity of the document remains unconfirmed, but it has certainly stirred the pot in the gaming community, leading to intense discussions and fan theories.

One such theory, gaining momentum among fans, is that this could be the prelude to a promotional push for the highly anticipated game, Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 6. Given the location of the campaign – Miami – and the ambitious nature of the plan, many believe that this could be the first sign of a promotional drive for the sequel to the massively popular GTA series.
However, it’s crucial to note that the document does not explicitly confirm that the campaign is for GTA 6. Since the release of GTA 5 in 2013, Rockstar Games has kept details about the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto series under tight wraps. So far, the only official word is that GTA 6 is in active development, with no further details revealed. Hence, the Reddit leak, even if legitimate, could be related to a completely different game from the company’s roster.

The gaming community has expressed a fair amount of skepticism about the leaked document’s authenticity. Many have suggested that the document could be a fake, or even AI-generated. Criticism has been directed towards the basic business card attached to the document, and the perceived ease with which such a document could be fabricated.
With Summer 2023 fast approaching, it won’t be long until we find out whether this alleged marketing plan is authentic or not. If genuine, it signifies a significant promotional move by Take-Two Interactive, one that could potentially be tied to one of the biggest game releases of recent years.
In the meantime, all we can do is wait and watch. The gaming world is no stranger to leaks, rumours, and speculation – sometimes they’re accurate, sometimes they’re not. However, they always add an element of excitement and anticipation to the community. Regardless of the truth behind this particular leak, it’s clear that when GTA 6 is finally announced, it will undoubtedly set the gaming world ablaze.
