According to some recent reports, GTA 6 won’t be released until 2025, but the flood of rumors and leaks continues. Voice actor Dave Jackson has accidentally hinted on his Facebook account that he is working with Rockstar Games on ‘GTA 6’. Although he doesn’t mention GTA 6 specifically, it’s not hard to guess that this is the game, despite the speculation surrounding the alleged remasters.
His name is Dave Jackson, a musician, and actor who posted the following on his Facebook account, “I just got word from the producers that it’s official: I will play the police chief Captain McClane in the new Grand Theft Auto. I didn’t have the heart to tell them that I really don’t have time. Seriously, it’s a privilege to work with such a professional and fun group of people. If you’re a gamer, stay tuned…”.
Jackson apparently deleted his post shortly after. The good news is that the GTA community, which has been very active lately in light of the GTA 6 rumors, managed to get a screenshot. Interestingly, before deleting it, the actor stated in the comments that he was not prohibited from posting such a message, as the non-disclosure agreement only prohibited the disclosure of plot details. However, it seems that his representatives did not inform him about all the restrictions.
The release of the voice actor is another indication that GTA 6 has indeed been in development for some time. Perhaps the biggest evidence of the existence came in early 2020 when Rockstar Games’ tax returns in the United Kingdom increased significantly. Such moves are commonplace as Rockstar North, the Scottish studio responsible for Grand Theft Auto, ramps up its efforts on a new project.
In addition to GTA 6, Rockstar Games is rumored to be preparing remasters of GTA 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas. This is confirmed by Kotaku, one of the most reliable sources in the industry. Kotaku claims that the company plans to release them later this year for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Play. If the report is true, an official announcement is surely imminent.
