It took eight years, but we were finally treated to a sequel to Red Dead Redemption back in October, and while I personally don’t think it managed to measure up to the original—which I consider to be Rockstar’s magnum opus—the game more than lived up to the hype and made the seemingly endless wait worth it.
Now that the Red Dead Redemption 2 hype has died down, fans of the studio (and seemingly endless waits) have turned their attention to the future as they await a followup to the fifth installment of the Grand Theft Auto series, which was released in 2013.
Grand Theft Auto 5 has sold close to 100 million units since it came out and is the most profitable piece of entertainment ever made thanks in no small part to its online component, which continues to print money for Rockstar six years after they dropped the latest game in the franchise.
Last year, rumors started to circulate that suggested the studio is in no rush to make Grand Theft Auto 6. However, in recent months, we’ve been treated to a few leaks that have all but confirmed a new game is in development as more and more information starts to trickle out.
Now, according to Digital Trends, it looks like we’ve been treated to the biggest leak yet thanks to a recent Reddit post in which someone who claims to have intimate knowledge of GTA 6 has spilled more beans than Kevin when he dropped his chili on The Office.
According to the alleged insider, fans of Narcos are going to be in for quite a treat, as the new game allegedly draws heavily from the Netflix series.
The followup will supposedly feature a single playable character (as opposed to GTA V’s three) who is initially tasked with smuggling cocaine between Vice City and South America before building a drug empire players will be able to manage.
Additionally, the leaker claims the game will take place in the 1970s and 80s—which already has me amped for the soundtrack—and will address hot topics from those decades like immigration and HIV.
Sadly, there’s one critical piece of info they don’t appear to be privy to: the release date, which still remains a mystery.
Previous rumors have implied Rockstar will wait for the next generation of consoles before they release the next Grand Theft Auto game, and when you consider we don’t have a timeline for those yet, we’re probably going to have to wait a few more years for GTA 6.
