Excitement for Grand Theft Auto 6 is through the roof and, hot off the heels of fans marking Grand Theft Auto 5's ninth anniversary, footage from the upcoming video game appears to have leaked online.
We can't say for sure that it's the real deal (especially as we'd think Rockstar would have removed it by now if it was), but it's incredibly convincing and doesn't appear to be a mod of GTA 5. With that in mind, we're inclined to believe that this is early development footage from the upcoming sixth instalment...that Rockstar is happy to leave out there to build excitement.
While the visuals are clearly far from finished in places, there's an awful lot to delve into. We've embedded just a handful of the most intriguing examples below, though a quick look on social media, Reddit, and YouTube suggests there are upwards of 90 videos currently doing the rounds.
Here, we see GTA 6's rumoured Bonnie and Clyde-like couple robbing a diner, head inside a strip club, and witness first-hand how NCPs will act and converse in the game.
There are also hints that Rockstar is following Red Dead Redemption 2's example by giving players a realistic number of weapons and having us actually carry them on their person rather than pulling a giant flamethrower out of nowhere! Those NCPs also seem more realistic than ever before, and we can't help but think this...might be the best game ever?
That certainly sounds like hyperbole, but what other conclusion can we come to? In terms of sheer interactivity and realism, it's hard to think of any other game that comes close to what Rockstar looks set to deliver with this sixth instalment of the franchise.
Hopefully, some official details are on the way. For now, though, you can check out this footage leak below!
