With just a few weeks to go until Rockstar releases its first trailer for the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI, rumours are flying around thick and fast with news that one major feature may have already been scrapped.
The start of November saw Rockstar announce that early December would see the “first trailer for the next Grand Theft Auto”. With it being 10 years since Grand Theft Auto V was released, it is safe to say that fans are more than ready for the next instalment. If anything, it will put a stop to the hundreds of rumours and potential leaks that have surfaced online over the past decade.

One in particular was the rumour that Rockstar would be implementing an extreme weather system to Grand Theft Auto VI. This would have brought hurricanes and tornadoes to the game which is something we have yet to see in a Grand Theft Auto title. However, according to one insider, the extreme weather feature was scrapped during development.
"I've heard they wanted hurricanes and tornadoes, as to why they were cut I don't know," claims Rockstar Universe via Twitter. "It could be tech limitations, it could be something else."
This is perhaps not surprising as implementing extreme weather conditions into any game is challenging, let alone one that is on Grand Theft Auto VI’s scale. However, many fans believed this rumour to be true as hurricanes are pretty common in Florida’s inspired Vice City where the game will reportedly be set.
With both the original rumour of an extreme weather system and now a claim from an insider of it not being implemented being unconfirmed by Rockstar, we need to take this information with a pinch of salt. Grand Theft Auto VI is set to be the most expensive video game ever made, so who knows? It may very well go above and beyond by including features we have never seen before.
