GTA 6 release date news begins with a leak that could be music to the ears of PlayStation and Xbox fans looking forward to a new Grand Theft Auto game.
GTA 6 is one of the most highly anticipated games on the horizon, despite not being officially announced by Rockstar Games.
Ever since Rockstar released Red Dead Redemption 2 attention has shifted to what the Grand Theft Auto makers could be working on next.
And an obvious choice was GTA 6 with Grand Theft Auto fans currently enduring the longest wait ever for a new GTA game.
As anticipation about GTA 6 has grown in 2019 the rumour mill has gone into overdrive with big claims made about the unannounced title.
It’s been claimed that GTA 6 will be out in 2020, will be a timed PS5 exclusive and be set in Vice City.
And as fans wait for official word from Rockstar Games about GTA 6 they may have been delivered a release date boost.
The rumour mill had previously claimed that Rockstar Games had another game planned before launching GTA 6.
It had been claimed that Bully 2 – and not GTA 6 – was the next title on the agenda for Rockstar Games.
If that was the case then there was no telling when GTA 6 may launch, with that rumoured 2020 release date looking unlikely.
But it has now been claimed that Bully 2 has in fact been scrapped by Rockstar Games.
As reported on in a post by Video Games Chronicle, a Bully sequel was allegedly in the works as far back as 2008 when a script was written.
It’s claimed that in the early 2010s development on Bully 2 began with Rockstar New England spending up to 18 months working on the title.
However, sources claim that Bully 2 “never built momentum” and work on the project eventually “fizzled out”.
Speaking to VGC, the source said: “It existed, it was playable, it was just a shame it never got off the ground”.
The insider claimed the teams working on Bully 2 were then moved onto other projects.
It had been thought that Bully 2 could have been the next game that Rockstar were releasing.
But, if development on the title has been scrapped, then it could mean that GTA 6 is the next title that Rockstar are set to release.
However, before GTA fans get too excited – and Bully aficionados get distraught – remember it’s best to take all rumours with a pinch of salt.
Hopefully Rockstar Games fans will get official word on the next GTA game sooner rather than later.
It has been over six years since Grand Theft Auto 5 came out on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
It marks the longest wait fans have ever had for a new GTA game.
