Update: The age rating is fake
The Australian Government has provided some intriguing new details on GTA 6 . While Rockstar Games, the developer behind this wildly popular franchise, has remained tight-lipped, some information has recently come to light thanks to an Australian Classification rating.
A vigilant Reddit user spotted GTA 6 listed on the Australian Classification website. The game is rated MA15+, a surprisingly low rating compared to its predecessors. Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online both carry an R18+ rating, making the MA15+ rating for GTA 6 a deviation from the norm. This has led to speculation that the rating could be a placeholder, awaiting final confirmation.
Further details from the Australian Classification site categorize GTA 6 under ‘Computer Games’ and indicate it will feature “Strong Sex Scenes and Strong Drug Use.” The site also officially credits Rockstar Games as the game’s production company.
The Australian rating was officially granted on April 2, 2023. This could signify an upcoming announcement, as it’s common for games to be unveiled after receiving certification. Fans are eager to see if GTA 6 will also get ratings from other regulatory bodies worldwide in the near future.
While the gaming community awaits further information, this Australian Classification provides a glimmer of hope and a handful of details to speculate upon. Will the MA15+ rating hold? What does the new classification mean for the game’s content? Only time will tell, but for now, the new details offer a hint of what might be coming in Rockstar Games’ next blockbuster.
