KEY POINTS

  • Rockstar Games is still silent about "GTA 6"
  • The gaming studio might make an announcement at the Super Bowl 55, rumors claim
  • The said announcement could be related to "GTA 6," fans believe

One of the biggest questions in the gaming industry right now is when Rockstar Games would finally announce "GTA 6" but hopeful fans believe that Super Bowl 55 could be Rockstar Games' platform in launching the much-awaited title.

Speculations about the potential announcement of "GTA 6" was started by Reddit user ItsTreDay on the game's subreddit. According to them, Rockstar Games might announce the game during the Super Bowl 55 on Feb. 7. Last year, rumors claimed that the gaming studio used Vice City references during the Super Bowl to allude to the rumored game's setting. While these theories seem convincing, Rockstar never confirmed that it had anything to do with the game.

The Reddit user offered a detailed explanation of why he thinks fans could see the official reveal at the big game on Feb. 7. They based their speculation on the performance of The Weekend at the event's halftime show. "It's taking place in Florida again, and The Weeknd is performing at half time," they noted. "There were tons of rumors of him working with Rockstar last year when his album was announced."

"I could see a 15-30 second commercial of a car starting up or a cinematic shot of whatever city the game takes place in followed by the Rockstar and GTA VI logo being a VERY SLIGHT possibility," the Reddit user added, noting while it may sound like a long shot, it is still a possibility.

Last year, The Weeknd's Blinding Lights music video shortly revealed an arrow-shaped sign, which reads, "GTA 6 Trailer." The sign was seen for just a few frames but it was enough to attract the attention of "GTA 6" fans. It turned out later that the video making rounds on the internet were fake.

For now, this remains as speculation and until Rockstar Games officially confirms that it is working on the rumored title, fans should take these details with a pinch of salt.

The gaming studio earlier confirmed that it plans to release the expanded and enhanced version of "GTA 5" for next-generation gaming consoles sometime this year.
