The Grand Theft Auto VI ""Leak"" Archive


Pin Lfc
 Share

Recommended Posts

This thread exists to list and archive all known legitimate leaks for Rockstar Games' upcoming title, Grand Theft Auto VI.

Note that there are numerous leaks that are unconfirmed, and are still up for debate. So they shall be categorized separately.

There is also an unknown category for those that may be real, but cannot be verified. Not counting baseless claims such as reddit or 4chan posts.

Or pieces of information that are real, but may or may not be related to GTA VI.

 

LEGITIMATE

 

Tim Neff - July 27th 2017 Stuntman, Tim Neff's online resume leaks that he worked on RDR2 and GTA VI. He denied involvement in RDR2, but claimed he worked on GTA V, and that it was a mistake. He also had personal instagram photos from Rockstar San Diego, with captions strongly suggesting he was there for work. He denied it, saying it was just a photo taken outside that anyone could take. He quickly removed them. He was not credited in GTA V, but by RDR2's release he is indeed credited in RDR2. Tim Neff's resume/CV used to be found on his website and on his iStunt page, however his website appears to now be offline and he is no longer on the iStunt website. Interestingly enough, his personal website listed 6 projects, under mocap. 3 of which are untitled. But on his iStunt page, they were all titled. The three hidden titles were; Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto & Call of Duty. He is listed in the credits for Call of Duty Black Ops 4, which confirms this information is legit and can be trusted. Which only goes on to confirm he is indeed in GTA VI.

Jason Schreier's Article - 15th April 2020 Jason Schreier reports that Rockstars next game is a new Grand Theft Auto.

 

Quote

One plan that management has laid out for the next game, a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series, is to start out with a moderately sized release (which, by Rockstar’s standards, would still be a large game) that is then expanded with regular updates over time, which may help mitigate stress and crunch.

But there’s a catch: Rockstar’s next big project is still early in development.

18 Months After Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar Has Made Big Cultural Changes

 

UNKNOWN

 

Keinemusik - November 22nd 2019 Rampa of Keinemusik spends 5 days touring the east coast of the USA with his friend &ME as well as Sam Houser and Rockstar Games programmers. This article on beatportal.com was published on November 27th. The date would indicate he likely took the tour over the weekend beginning the 22nd November.

Quote

Today he’s cheerful despite being slightly sick. Rampa has just come back from a tour of the East Coast with his good friend and Keinemusik comrade &ME. And after spending five days partying with other headliners and the dudes from Rockstar Games, he’s feeling slightly under the weather. Nevertheless he chuckles constantly, never missing an opportunity to poke fun at himself and the seriousness of the industry he’s part of. He’s incapable of keeping still, constantly fidgeting with his glasses or beanie, speaking in an Americanised German accent as he recalls his first venture into the world of music.

- December 2020 DJ Adam Port, who is part of 'Keinemusik' was DJing at a party for a group of Rockstar developers, including Sam Houser. They went into brief detail about what they did in Miami. He also noted that their work with Rockstar took place about 9 months prior - March 2020. This was likely for Cayo Perico.

Quote

"... (SAM Houser ) .... liked what we do, that he invited us to MIAMI to a party with Circoloco that they organized together with Rockstar, for their programmers. They invited their programmers who were working on the game in the USA and they did things there, like driving Lambos, going to the Shooting Range ... "

"..... They should experience what they're programming in real life"

We cannot confirm what the Rockstar developers purpose in Miami was, as of yet. But we know that they were there. And that they were there to 'experience what they were programming'. It could have been for GTA Online, or GTA VI and that's why they were in Miami. So for now, this has to be in the 'Unknown' category.

Thank you to @WombR4aid3r and @Itscoming2020 for help with the translation.

 

Parachuting Files Found in RDR2.exe - January 15th 2021 User @rollschuh2282 discovered there is a mention of a parachuting file that does not exist in GTA V or the gta5.exe, meaning it isn't a leftover and is most likely a parachuting file from GTA VI. The actual files are not found in RDR2, but simply referenced, or mentioned.

Quote

well...thought i post the code snippet i found of most likely GTA 6 in the RDR2.exe

there is a mention in it of a parachuting file that does not exist in V or the gta5.exe either, so it isn´t a leftover and most likely a parachuting file from GTA 6.

parachute stuff.


funnily that "pack" animation file does not exist in V.
and is not even listed in the GTA5.exe

these are all of Vs parachute animations.
as you can see the naming fits, but the "pack" one doesn´t exist

Unbenannt.PNG

Although it could be related to Grand Theft Auto V Expanded & Enhanced, rollschuh2282 does not believe it is, due to it being there on PC and since 2019.

 

Quote

no it isn´t. [Related to GTA V E&E]

that line is even in the PC release version included.

and that was 2019.

i really doubt it has something to do with E&E.

my guess is relative simple.

parachuting is something that is implemented into the core base engine itself.

which is why there is a setting in the gameconfig to enable parachuting, but is set to false.

similiar to the crouching in V.

a lot of stuff is part of the base RAGE engine.

and RAGE was originally made for GTA.

so a lot of base code is to make a GTA game.

which is also why the RDR2 vehicle.meta still has that entry for the vehicle manufacturers from V and such or a lot of other stuff.

even some internal stuff has GTA in the name etc.

so that is the reason why that skydiving line slipped into RDR2.

it´s RAGE base code and they probs improved it for GTA 6 at that time, which means in got put into the base RAGE code, which RDR2 also uses.

 

maybe sounds a bit complicated, but it really isn´t.

 

This cannot be proven to be from GTA VI, so for now it has to remain 'Unknown'. As it may well turn out to be updated animations for Grand Theft Auto V Expanded & Enhanced.

Iain Campbell - February 13th 2021 GTA VI was briefly mentioned on a Rockstar Games Music Producers Clubhouse bio. Since Clubhouse was a private app on iOS at the time, this cannot be verified 100%. I have since verified the account does exist but there is no mention of 'VI' currently.

UNCONFIRMED

 

Jorge Consejo - December 25th 2017 @Jabalous made a very interesting discovery, actor and Miami resident Jorge Consejo listed Grand Theft Auto VI (CGI) 2018 on his CV. Along with a photo on his Instagram account from 2014 of him dressed up in performance capture gear.

He also quoted me on Twitter a year and a half later, saying he could neither confirm nor deny that he was in GTA VI. Which I found highly suspicious. He later deleted the Tweet.

The Know - 'Project Americas' - March 6th 2018 YouTube channel 'The Know' ran by Rooster Teeth posted a video news update about a piece of information they had received from an 'inside source' that wished to remain anonymous. They claim this person provided enough evidence to them to suggest the claims were genuine.

The claims were that GTA VI would be set in Miami and allow for travel between the USA and South America when doing missions. Their source claimed Rockstar were still in the early stages of development, but it could be released in the next 3 to 4 years, putting it at an approximate release of 2021 - 2022. Their source also was not clear on weather or not it would be set in present day or the 80's like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002)

 

Quote

"The next Grand Theft Auto is codenamed 'Project Americas' and it will be based in Miami or possibly their facsimile of Miami, given how Rockstar does these things..."


"The reason it's codenamed 'Project Americas' is because you'll be able to fly between the USA and South America when you're doing missions."

 

"Well as for the upcoming game, our source wasn't clear weather the game's gonna' be set in a current day Miami, or something in the past. But it wouldn't be surprising to see it take place in a post Vercetti era, with, I don't know, lot's of call-backs but room for a whole new story?"

 

"As for the game's protagonist, this has been rumoured before and it is apparently still yet to be fully firmly decided, but there are rumours we could see a female lead for the game."

 

"No word on weather it would be one of multiple protagonists like they did with GTA V, or it they're going back to a single lead format there. With it being early days, that could also change during development."

 

 

 

Florida Scouting/Leah Sokolowski - October 6th - 13th 2019 Reports surfaced on Reddit about scouting taking place near a local business.

GTA 6 in Vice city confirmed!!!!

I work at a local shop in wynwood and rockstar had scouts looking at the area and asked my manager permission to take pictures of the building for “reference” and that she works for rockstar Etc...

GTA 6 in Vice city confirmed!!!!

2 days later, they posted a photograph of the document as 'proof'

Pictures of the contract for those who didn’t believe me.. GTA 6 in Vice city confirmed !!

After deciding to look into it myself, 5 days later. I made some very interesting discoveries:

Not gonna' lie... It's starting to become VERY interesting...

https://filmflorida.org/podcast/episode-16-leah-sokolowsky/

 

 

Found this podcast earlier this afternoon. It's dated May 21st 2019 (according to the YouTube video) But before posting it, I wanted to listen to it all. There's nothing much to note besides this at the 7 minute mark:

 

  Quote

Recently as you're aware we've had a change in the types of productions that are coming to our state. So I've also been very fotunate to get a large client that has hired me to arrange basically site tours and visits. It's uh digital media company. And I've signed an NDA so I can't disclose who it is. But they've been exploring various areas of our state, and of other states in the south east. And I've been planning and arranging those visits for their personnel and that's been kind of a very interesting expansion of what I normally do, as well.

So, she's definatly involved, and that letter is starting to look more and more legit. However, It remains possible that the person who leaked the letter could of been aware of this, and used it as a basis for their leak. But that would require some digging to even find it. I only found it since her name and details were on the letter. EDIT: I forgot to mention it is also possible that it isn't Rockstar/TakeTwo. But... right now, things are adding up quite well. Let's just hope we are seeing things as clear as we think.

Sadly, this is still unconfirmed as we still do not know the identity of the 'Digital Media Company' referenced by Leah Sokolowski, as it is protected by an NDA.

Project Americas Referenced in RDR2 code? - December 3rd 2019 @Tez2 made a post which was confirmed by @alloc8or There was a piece of text found in the files: 

Quote

<!-- MISC AMERICAS SCRIPT STATS -->

Which was later changed to just:

<!-- MISC SCRIPT STATS -->

This change potentially suggests that 'Project Americas' may have indeed been real.

GTA 6 Weapons references possibly found in an RDR2 file - December 28th 2020 @DerekLeet made a very interesting discovery. Modern weapons were found in the files for RDR2, which had apparently been there since launch on console in October 2018. It is unknown what these weapons are for. They may have been leftover code from L.A. Noire or the abandoned Agent. Or it may well be for GTA VI. Only time will tell.

  

On 12/28/2020 at 9:35 PM, DerekLeet said:

Hey I found this a week or two week ago, but I wasn't sure if this was for GTA 6 or something else. It still might not but I don't have anyway to check either, so I'm just sharing this to see what you guys think.

I found these in an RDR2 file called propsets.meta, under "common_0.rpf/data/ai" so if you don't believe me you can check for yourself.

V3aAMcJ.jpg

sgJND9D.jpg

This file appears to be referencing weapon models that aren't anywhere in the files, including ones for an L1A1 rifle and a Pistol referred to as a Browning, probably the Browning Hi-Power.

Strangely there appears to be two variants for the Browning pistol, one silenced and one regular version. I don't what that's about but it definitely ain't from GTA V.

Here are what I think the weapons they are referencing, aside from the AK47: 

wDwShsn.jpeg

A4u0kDU.jpeg

These aren't from GTA V because GTA V's version of these sections have entirely different weapons, and the AK47 in that game is referred to as "W_AR_ASSAULTRIFLE" rather than "W_AR_AK47"

For example, the below section is from GTA V, however it doesn't have any of the weapons references from above.

HhN7vbQ.jpg

These aren't new btw, they appear to have been in the game since the release of RDR2 on console, so I was kinda surprised nobody else found these.

 

Sorry if this post seems a bit bootleg, but I wasn't expecting to be the one who found this. It's possible these are from a different game, but I can't be sure, so take from this what you will.

It's genuinely scary. I remember it happening and then I got really excited, knowing RDR2 was due for the spring and maybe GTA VI a few years later...
Anyway, It's wise not to flood this thread with too much off topic discussion. Having said that... it's unlikely there's going to be many genuine leaks to really add or discuss 😕

Awesome thread mate ;)

 

I almost forgot about the Americas code being found in RDR2 files. For some reason that excites me in a way, gives me a little hope that something like The Know leak is not impossible.

 

But I have one question, I'm not sure why you put it in the unconfirmed category, I think It's more than likely related to VI. Especially considering they removed the "Americas" part after people found out about it.

I'm just being 100% honest and analytical. It would be a presumption to say it is confirmed. Even though I agree it likely is VI. We just have to be completely honest and say that we can't outright prove it. The CV leaks are only provably legitimate as we saw them and had tangible evidence they were real, and they have been featured in their games credits.

I debated that. But since they only mentioned touring the east coast, Miami included with Sam Houser and a few Rockstar programmers, I wasn't sure if that fit the bill for a ""leak"" or not, or more of a... hell I don't actually know lol

Tbf, none of this is new, and most of it was found by others anyway. The internet is full of free info. But if anyone does use info they find, just credit the original source.

Weren't there notes by Sam Houser from 2012 about GTA 6? Can't find a source.

 

It mentioned Vice, Mexico City, Detroit, Chicago, Brazil and possibly Canada as locations on a project. I just recall seeing it being posted on here; according to that, GTA 6 may have been in concept as early as 2012(!)

Yes. I don't have the full document, but I have the basic notes that have been posted. But they're very old and basically just potential ideas. The goal of this thread is to basically 'archive' and list the major leaks. That memo is too unspecific.

I think it's for either for GTA VI or maybe E&E?

Best to add it in the unconfirmed category I think!

So the project America’s leak seems the most legit. So how can it be modern day according to Tom?

No. All their source told them was that it was codenamed 'Project Americas' and would be based in Miami. You'll be able to fly between the USA and South America when doing missions. And was expected sometime around 2020/21. The 80's and drug smuggling was speculation based on that info because 'it makes sense', which it does. But making sense doesn't mean it's correct.

According to their source, it could be released in the next 3 to 4 years. Which would be around 2021 - 2022. And the protagonist hadn't been fully, firmly decided. But there were rumours of a female lead, with no real idea if they'd be one of multiple, or not.
