The wait for the GTA 6 reveal and release date continues to rumble on. But as fans continue to keep an eagle-eyed lookout for any morsel of news a new rumour has emerged, courtesy of a reliable leaker. Tom Henderson – aka LongSensation – has a long track record of accurately leaking information about other blockbuster games that aren’t in Rockstar’s stable – Call of Duty and Battlefield.

But recently the reliable leaker has been chiming in on a few interesting details about GTA 6.

Express.co.uk previously reported on how Henderson predicted that a reveal for GTA 6 could be 18 months away.

Henderson dropped this anticipated reveal window in a reply to tweet about when GTA 6 could end up getting announced.

Adding to the discussion Henderson wrote: “Yeah I agree. I think we’re 18 months away from a GTA 6 announcement tbh”.

And now following on from this Henderson has revealed some potentially huge news about GTA 6.

As fans have been waiting for an official announcement from Rockstar Games there have been plenty of rumours swirling around.

It’s been claimed GTA 6 could be a timed exclusive for the PS5, that it will only be for next-gen consoles, that it could feature a drug running storyline inspired by Netflix’s Narcos, have a new location in South America, feature the first ever playable female protagonist and more.

It has also been claimed that GTA 6 will be set in Vice City (which many people have taken for a given by now) and that it could be set in two different time periods – the 80s once again and modern times.

However, Henderson looks to have put to bed rumours that Grand Theft Auto fans could be dusting off their white suits to head back to the era of Miami Vice, the Sony Walkman, incredible music (Cyndi Lauper anyone?), GOAT movies like The Breakfast Club and much much more.

Earlier this week Henderson replied to calls for more info on GTA 6.

And Henderson answered this request, dropping the news that GTA 6 will be set in modern times – not in the 80s.

Henderson tweeted: “It’s not set in the 1980’s and is modern.”

Explaining the reasons for this, Henderson went on to add: “GTA Online + Modern + Wacky S*** = More Money”.

The latest GTA 6 rumours come after Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier delivered some bad release news.

Schreier was quizzed whether GTA 6 could still be released around 2023 – a prediction previously made on the Tripe Click podcast.

Replying to this the in-the-know journalist said: “Expect everything to be way later than you’d think because of Covid”.
