Australia’s game rating authority has stepped in to clear the air.
In an official statement to PCGamesN, the Australian Classification Board confirmed that the recent age rating that surfaced for GTA 6 is fake. Moreover, the board stated that they have no information on the game’s release date.
The false age rating for GTA 6 had initially appeared on the Australian Classification website and was widely thought to have originated from Rockstar Games, the company behind the franchise. However, after a thorough investigation, it turns out that the website allowed for submissions that could potentially be fake, leading to the incorrect listing. This has since been removed, quashing any speculation that arose from the erroneous record.
While fans have been clamoring for news of the sequel for over a decade since the launch of GTA 5 and its online counterpart, GTA Online, the Australian Classification Board’s clarification serves as a reminder to stay cautious of unofficial news. Particularly as updates for Rockstar’s other major title, Red Dead Redemption 2, appear to have ceased, many have wondered if GTA 6 could be the next big project for the studio. However, the release date remains uncertain.
Though concrete details are lacking, rumors about the upcoming game suggest that it might be set in Vice City and feature dual protagonists. The game is also rumored to focus heavily on heists and robberies, which could indicate a fresh gameplay direction for the franchise.
While the gaming community eagerly awaits any snippet of information, it’s important to note that the Australian Classification Board has no additional details on when this much-anticipated sequel might hit the shelves. Until then, fans are advised to treat all unofficial news and rumors with skepticism and await announcements from reliable sources.
So as the wait for GTA 6 continues, players can still enjoy the expansive world of GTA 5 through mods and various role-playing servers, keeping the excitement alive as they look forward to what Rockstar has in store next.
