A new rumor claims that GTA online the final update – or at least its last major update – arrives this year just before GTA 6 marketing campaign starts. It’s hard to imagine that given the amount of money GTA online prints, but that’s exactly the claim Grand Theft Auto leak Matheusvictorbr done recently. According to the leaker, the current iteration of GTA online will receive its last DLC / major update sometime this year alongside the start of the GTA 6 marketing campaign, presumably to ensure Grand Theft Auto fans turn their attention to GTA 6. A few different reliable sources claimed GTA 6 is going to be revealed this year, so that part of the rumor isn’t very surprising. The part on GTA online is new though.
The rumor itself is enough to divide fans. In a camp are Grand Theft Auto fans who have gone from GTA 5 and GTA online and waited impatiently GTA 6. For these fans, this rumor is good news. However, for the many gamers who still play GTA onlinethis rumor is obviously far from good news.
What also divides fans is the source. Matheusvictorbr has been off the mark in the past, but the Brazilian leaker has also been on the mark in the past, and therefore some within the Grand Theft Auto the community takes the leaker’s scoops at face value. However, recently a prominent Rockstar Games insider, Yan2295questioned Matheusvictorbr’s claims and suggested that they were not worth paying attention to.
For what it’s worth, we heard through the vine that GTA 6 is expected to be revealed this year, although there is some uncertainty as to whether that deadline will be met. What we haven’t heard is GTA online support slowing down drastically once the GTA 6 marketing campaign begins. That’s not to say it’s not true, but it’s not something we’ve heard.
If Matheusvictorbr is to be believed, Rockstar Games is at least ready to send GTA online with a bang. According to the leaker, GTA online is getting a Liberty City map expansion this summer. It would make sense for this to be the last big GTA online update before GTA 6but just because it makes sense doesn’t mean it’s true.
