KEY POINTS

  • More rumors about "GTA 6" have surfaced online
  • One of them hints at the possible reveal of "Grand Theft Auto 6"
  • Rockstar Games has not said anything about "GTA 6"

Rockstar Games is preparing to release a new version of "Grand Theft Auto 5" for new generation gaming consoles PS5 and Xbox Series, suggesting that the next "GTA" is still a few years away. Despite this, there's a recent job listing from the gaming studio that seems to offer hints on a potential event for "Grand Theft Auto 6."

Last month, a post in the "Grand Theft Auto 6" subreddit revealed that Rockstar Games would launch a huge marketing campaign. This said the campaign would reportedly feature live events, including updates for "GTA Online." Apparently, the recent job listing by the gaming studio seemingly points to this supposed "GTA 6" marketing campaign rumors, somehow indicating that they are true.

Based on the job listing, Rockstar Games is in need of a lives operations coordinator in the SoHo area of Manhattan in New York. The successful candidate will be tasked to execute all "in-game marketing campaigns for Red Dead Online and Grand Theft Auto Online." Additionally, they are expected to provide support to the marketing team.

It looks like Rockstar Games wants to highlight the importance of its "Online" titles, hence its plan to launch a massive marketing campaign.

Some industry watchers believe that the gaming studio might reveal the next "Grand Theft Auto" title or the next "Red Dead Redemption" content in these online games, just like what Activision does to "Call of Duty." Epic Games' "Fortnite" started this strategy and it appears that other developers are looking for means to announce their new and upcoming projects through creative and strategic channels.

It would be a bold move for Rockstar Games to announce "GTA 6" through "GTA Online." But at this point, neither the gaming studio nor its parent company Take-Two Interactive has confirmed that "GTA 6" is in development or in the pipeline.

It's also worth mentioning the job listing does not specifically mention that the marketing campaigns would be for the next "Grand Theft Auto" iteration. Therefore, fans should take this latest piece of information with skepticism until Rockstar Games makes an official announcement.

"GTA 6" is one of the heavily rumored unannounced games in the industry. The title is believed to be in development.
