GTA 6’s release may still be a long way away, but that doesn’t stop hype around the game from growing. With fans desperate for even the smallest scraps of information, a major new leak has dropped claims about possible locations, characters, GTA Online, and a whole lot more.

Grand Theft Auto fans were sent into overdrive when Rockstar finally confirmed that they working on GTA 6. Since then, the community has been dreaming up the ideal Grand Theft Auto game, while eagerly anticipating the next drop of information from the developers.

With GTA 5 becoming one of the biggest games of all time, and hundreds of thousands of players logging into GTA Online on a regular basis, there are some lofty expectations for the next addition to the storied franchise.

For those desperate for new details, a huge new leak has made claims about the game’s locations, who will be playable characters, GTA Online, and even more.

In a now-deleted Reddit post, Reddit user TestPattern5 shared a huge document, filled to the brim with GTA 6 information.

Apparently, there will be three main characters in Grand Theft Auto 6. Ricardo is a former Colombian special agent. An illegal immigrant, he’s “obsessed with wealth and power,” and even though his past involved military service, he avoids conflict as much as possible.

Rose is a police officer who struggles with the death of her husband and depressive drug addiction, and is attracted to Ricardo who she believes will rise to power. Casey, a former boxer, is desperate for money, and has “no problem hurting people.”

The fact there are three playable characters is reminiscent of the last entry into the series, as GTA 5 let players control Michael, Franklin, and Trevor.

According to the leak, each character will also have their own unique abilities and tasks. Ricardo and Casey can recruit members to their gangs, while Rose can order fellow cops away from crime scenes to avoid a wanted level.

The document claims the story will follow Ricardo in South America first, as he moves to Liberty State, Vice City, Carcer City, and Cottonmouth, with the latter two locations from another of Rockstar’s IPs, Manhunt.

There will also be plenty of side activities to help the world of GTA 6 feel alive, including:

  • Gambling
  • Golfing
  • Surfing
  • Skateboarding
  • Tennis
  • Pool
  • Chess
  • Basketball
  • Bowling
  • Strip Clubs
  • Cinemas
  • Arcades

As for GTA Online, the document suggests that we’ll be able to control four different characters, who each have different backstories, roles, bank accounts, and assets. Live sporting events could also happen, which players could bet on to make some extra cash.

This isn’t the first major leak for the game, with a Youtuber claiming that the single-player mode would be over 500 hours long, and also mentioned multiple continents too.

As for a release date, this document claims we could be waiting until the end of 2024 to get our hands on it, with a reveal later this year.

Of course, these are just leaks, and there’s no way to verify their accuracy until Rockstar confirm them. Still, if these are even close to true, it looks like Grand Theft Auto 6 is going to be huge.
