GTA 6 'trailer' deleted from YouTube leaves fans furious

GTA 6 'trailer' deleted from YouTube leaves fans furious

Grand Theft Auto fans have been left disappointed after a supposed trailer for GTA 6 was taken down and unveiled as a hoax.

One day, I’ll write, ‘The wait for Grand Theft Auto VI is over,’ but today is not that day. Rockstar Games continue to keep a closed lid on the project, despite the clear desperation from fans for a crumb of an update.

We may not have any official news, but the leaks are coming thick and fast. As I’m sure you’re aware, Rockstar Games was subject to a major cyber attack last year, during which over an hour’s worth of GTA VI footage was leaked online, alongside source code and screenshots. In the months since, fans have been pouring over any remaining trace of the leak they can find. A concept map has now appeared online - and the GTA V concept map was surprisingly close to the real thing. GTA VI is also on track to be the most expensive game ever made and needless to say, I think we’re all hyped. A recent trailer takedown slightly dulled the mood though.

You can play as Homelander from The Boys in GTA V thanks to this very cool mod.

As reported by Dexerto, a ‘GTA VI’ trailer recently appeared online with the uploader appearing as Rockstar North. It turns out though, the whole thing was a hoax and the trailer wasn’t made by Rockstar at all. Hoaxsters really went all out with this one, paying so that the fake trailer would play as an advert ahead of related videos. The footage used was actually just modded versions of existing GTA games, giving the appearance of new-gen graphics.

As shared by Reddit user BIGFAT32 who spotted the fake ad, the trailer had racked up over 422,000 views before it was taken down. GTA VI is going to be perhaps one of the biggest games of this decade, so I’m expecting a lot more fanfare than a trailer quietly dropped on YouTube. Still, many viewers found the footage quite convincing.

It’s thought that we might be close to a real GTA VI reveal. In the coming weeks, Take-Two Interactive - Rockstar’s parent company - have their latest earnings call, with some fans suspecting that the game may be unveiled to investors. We’ll just have to wait and see.
