Max Payne 3 Image Hints at Grand Theft Auto 6 Location

Rockstar Games may have already hinted Grand Theft Auto 6 location back in 2013 through Max Payne 3.

Despite any official word from developer/publisher Rockstar Games on upcoming sequel of action-adventure game Grand Theft Auto V, players have plenty of reason to believe Grand Theft Auto VI is in active development for some time.

There have been clues and hints that fans found so far that at least proves GTA6 is coming soon. Similarly, one poster from third-person shooter Max Payne 3 seemingly hints at location and release window of GTA VI from back in 2013.

Those locations mention alongside dates actually matches with their fictional counterparts within Rockstar game universe. Except for Las Venturas, almost every other venue are either from Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead Redemption.

Up until now, clues like accidental Instagram post of motion capture artists, resume of voice actors and Rockstar tax reports have hinted that Grand Theft Auto 6 is in works and some have given hope to fans that GTA 6 is coming soon.

Although many of these alleged leaks from 4chan, GTA Forums and Reddit has been incorrect thus far, it didn't stop fans from digging out any tiny bits of information on next GTA game, even if it means they have to go back to 2013.

There is very little chance that Rockstar Games have hidden release date of upcoming Grand Theft Auto 6 in front of us for this long, especially scheduling so far in advance when changes happen in video game development so often.

All other dates are apparently a simple nod to those titles, except for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Though this is more likely to appease fans of Easter eggs, Las Venturas may end up having some real ties with Grand Theft Auto VI after all.

GTA 6 Websites Updated Before Rumored Reveal

Rockstar updates website domains related to Grand Theft Auto 6 shortly before a rumored reveal date.

Over past few years, there have been heaps of rumors on highly- anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI none of which came out to be true. One recent rumor claims that developer/publisher Rockstar Games is going to reveal GTA 6 on March 25, 2020.

While this rumored reveal date gets closer, all sorts of gossips starts flying online and lately, some new changes noticed by players have added fuel to that fire when Rockstar has updated domain names associated with upcoming GTA VI.

In general, websites that are somehow related to Grand Theft Auto 6 used to redirect their traffic to Rockstar Games official website but that has changed most recently and now is showing an error message to all of its viewers.

If you dig a little deeper, you will see that GTA VI domain was last updated on March 23, only days before its rumored reveal. Usually, companies do this when their website is ready to launch and Rockstar typically does this to announce IPs.

RELATED: Red Dead Online May Have Teased Undead Nightmare

Previously, Rockstar updated websites for Bully and Red Dead Redemption but same didn't happen for GTA 6 just yet. In past, they changed yellow color of their logo into red to tease announcement for Red Dead Redemption 2.

Since none of that teasing happened so far, fans should probably watch out for more hints in coming weeks. There are heavy rumors of Grand Theft Auto 6 to be set in Vice City with a single protagonist but noting is confirmed by anyone.

RELATED: Xbox Game Pass Adds Grand Theft Auto V

This could all be simply a close coincidence, where these dates have unintentionally rallied up too close and Rockstar probably was doing regular updates for their websites as usual, which has nothing to do with GTA 6 in any way.

If somehow Rockstar Games ends up revealing Grand Theft Auto VI in next few days, GTA fans worldwide will go crazy. Nevertheless, it would be wise for everyone to take things with a grain of salt at this point and calmly wait for a reveal.
