A hoax and nothing more.
Despite a persistent message occurring for some players in Grand Theft Auto Online, Grand Theft Auto 6 has definitely not been announced for a 2019 release.
Rockstar’s official support account on Twitter recently responded to user @KolosisYT, dismissing the message by saying, “This is a hoax made with the use of mods, and not an official message or statement from Rockstar Games.”
The hoax message in question prompted many GTA Online players to take to Rockstar’s official support website, sharing the message that regularly appeared on their user interface above the game’s mini-map. The message stated: “GTA VI Coming 2019” with a general link to Rockstar’s official website, which shows nothing about Grand Theft Auto 6.
Though Grand Theft Auto 6 has been rumored to be in development for quite some time, Rockstar Games has not officially announced the game. An eventual Grand Theft Auto 6 is highly likely, however, as GTA 5 has sold over 95 million units since its release in 2013.
Rockstar is currently busy working on Red Dead Redemption 2, which is set to be released on October 26. For more on that eagerly anticipated title, check out our first hands-on look at Red Dead Redemption 2.
