Rockstar Games is known for its famous Grand Theft Auto franchise. The franchise has many popular entries, but GTA 6 could be on track to become its biggest title after a decade of anticipation.
While GTA 5 celebrated its 10th anniversary recently, Rockstar Games did not reveal any new information about GTA 6. This led to a message from Michael’s voice actor, who told fans to stay patient as the next game would be worth the wait.
Many were understandably let down by the lack of any announcement, but it appears Rockstar Games has begun teasing GTA 6, highlighting a specific part of the Vinewood symbol in a recent Twitter post.
Why it matters: As the launch of a game approaches, developers often tease fans with glimpses and hints of what is to come. These teasers serve to increase excitement and provide subtle clues about the upcoming release.
Happy Moon Festival!

The latest post from Rockstar Games highlights new clothing for GTA Online. However, taking a closer look at the image, the studio appears to have used the Vinewood symbol to hide a potential clue for GTA 6.
Vinewood is mostly hidden in the image apart from the first two letters, which are highlighted as a major part of the post. Therefore, ‘VI’ may be a reference to 6, possibly pointing to the inevitable reveal of GTA 6.
Following the tweet, social media users quickly caught on, pointing to the intentional reference from the studio.
The VI has got to be intentional they're just fucking with us now lmao

Twitter users have concluded that the ‘VI’ in the latest image is no coincidence, leading to only two possibilities.
While many believe the studio is teasing GTA 6, a few have pointed to the possibility of a social media manager taking a light jab at the conspiracies surrounding the game, trolling curious fans in the process.
According to statements from Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, GTA 6 is expected to arrive in 2024 or early 2025. Going by this release window, it would not be too far-fetched for the studio to offer a few teasers in 2023.
Many have also speculated that this teaser is just the beginning and Rockstar Games is building up to the game’s first reveal trailer through small clues. However, nothing has been confirmed for now.
GTA 6 marks the longest gap between two Grand Theft Auto entries, leading to higher expectations than any entry in the series.
The reactions to Rockstar Games’ latest tweets highlight the excitement for the game, with even the smallest of hints leading to waves of excitement due to the possibility of a potential reveal in the near future.
