A recent GTA VI leak confirms awesome new side activities and unreal water physics.
Over a year since Rockstar Games teased us with the news that it had started work on Grand Theft Auto VI, the developer has left us wondering in the dark. We’re no closer to actually knowing when it will officially release, on what platforms, where it will be set or what story it will tell.
Unfortunately, we’ve had to make do with a seemingly endless flow of rumours, speculation and a little bit of leaked gameplay footage. So as it's a new day, it means that we have yet another fresh GTA VI rumour and this time it’s in relation to its side activities and water physics.
As reported by Xfire.com, in a tweet shared by ‘GTA 6 Trailer Countdown, it is said that Rockstar Games will take its in-house RAGE (Rockstar Advanced Game Engine), the software used to power Red Dead Redemption 2, to the next level.
“Rockstar Games has reportedly hired a team of 20 engineers that works exclusively on GTA 6’s water physics, introducing surfing for the first time in the series,” tweeted @GTAVI_Countdown.

For decades, some gamers measure visual beauty on how good a game's water physics looks. To this day, I can remember being wowed by the water physicals of 2002’s Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny from Capcom. Obviously, a lot has changed in the last two decades, especially in the age of ray-tracing technology.
However, water physics will not only look and behave in a realistic manner, but it will also play a big role in GTA VI’s side activities. Sure in previous entries, we’ve been able to swim and drive boats, and if we’re lucky, we may have been eaten by a shark in GTA V. Yet in a series first, it’s rumoured that GTA VI will allow players to partake in a spot of surfing, which is totally bodacious, even if I do say so myself.
As with all rumours and speculation, we should take them with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise. Speaking of rumours, the alleged voice actor for one of GTA VI’s characters may have teased the Vice City location.
