A Grand Theft Auto VI leaker has responded after receiving death threats for their predictions and “insider” knowledge.

Things recently took a sinister turn though, when one “insider” reported they’ve been receiving death threats for the things they’ve been sharing on Twitter.
In a since-deleted tweet, @MarxxChris posted: I have been profoundly disturbed by the receipt of extremely alarming death threats … I am absolutely appaled by the level of criticism and hostility I have faced in response to the leaks.” The user has since deactivated their Twitter account.
The response was shared on the Grand Theft Auto VI subreddit by rolf344br who said: “Supposed GTA 6 "insider" having a mental breakdown on Twitter after being called out.”
Responses were mixed, and while many condemned the leaker for sharing false news as if it were fact, they also made it clear that death threats are definitely a step too far for something as simple as online clout chasing.
“Imagine sending someone death threats just because of leaks that may or may not be true. Y'all need to touch some grass cause at the end of the day it's just a f****** VIDEO GAME!”
“Crazy how easy it is to go on twitter, make up the most bs or obvious leaks everyday and then claim you're a legit insider and then people believe you.”
“Internet mfs are f****** weirdos man”
Hopefully, Rockstar will break its radio silence on GTA VI soon, as it’s clear fans are growing more impatient and irritable by the day. Fans are hoping a teaser will finally be released this month, as October is usually the time when Rockstar announces or shares details on a new project.
When Grand Theft Auto VI is released, it’ll launch on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and potentially PC.
