If you happen to head over to Rockstar Games’ offical website, you’ll be greeted to a brand-new visual. It is a picture of what looks like an android or robot hugging the Rockstar Games’ iconic ‘R’ logo. To add to the intrigue, the figure is surrounded by rose petals and a bottle of champagne, setting a very romantic mood. So, what is this mysterious image? Is it a brand-new game by Rockstar or are they teasing us with Grand Theft Auto 6?
Sure, it could be a brand-new game by the gaming studio, but we and thousands of others would like to believe that this is an indication that GTA 6 is on its way, and it’s coming sooner than we’re expecting. And here’s why we think that.
Earlier this year, a leaked project named ‘Project Amerikas’ strongly suggested that GTA 6 is rumoured to be set in the past. There were also rumours about Rockstar Games dialing it back and heading to the times of Vice City or San Andreas. The cryptic image uploaded to the gaming studios’ website could help confirm this rumour. The champagne bottle in the ice bucket beside the figure, has the number ‘1998’ on it, as brought to attention by a user on Twitter. This suggests that whatever is happening, is happening during that period.

It’s been seven years since GTA 5 was released, and gamers have been waiting patiently for the next chapter. From the looks of it, we might be closer than we thought.
