The latest Grand Theft Auto leak claims that Rockstar is currently working on new Synthwave music for a Vice City type “Radio Station.”
It’s been seven long years since GTA V was first released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and fans have been hoping for a new adventure ever since, new information has been pretty scarce, plenty of leaks and rumours over the years have kept the community on edge. On August 3, GTA Online players spotted six new teasers with ‘2021’ plastered across the map – but nothing was confirmed on that.
A release date isn’t set in stone just yet. In fact, rough release windows have even been shut down by Rockstar in the past. However, a since-deleted tweet claims that GTA VI might actually be closer than we think.
‘Vector Hold’ is described as an “80’s Electro Synth project,” on Twitter. Led by musician Peter Bryan Rice, this account claims a wide array of Synthwave artists have been approached by Rockstar.
“Music rights clearing people have been hitting up Synthwave artists for a Radio Station,” the deleted tweet said. Rockstar has allegedly been looking to secure an array of 80’s music, potentially hinting at the setting of GTA VI.
Plenty of GTA games have featured dedicated electronic music stations. Others have included throwback channels for classic hits as well, so the music selection would make sense, but it makes it hard to nail down an exact time that the game could be set in. That, however, didn’t stop the Vector Hold account from throwing in its two cents, however. “GTA VI will most likely take place in Vice City,” they added.
Since the post has been deleted, it’s wise to take this information with a grain of salt. Rockstar could be reaching out for a completely unrelated project.
