A giant document containing gameplay and story details about GTA 6 has been dismissed as fan fiction by another insider.

We’ve lost track of how many ‘leaks’ there have been concerning . While a couple have come from verified sources, it’s safe to assume that the majority are .

Earlier this month, for instance, a purported megaleak began making the rounds for allegedly containing everything there is to know about Grand Theft Auto 6, and we do mean everything.

Not just a supposed release date of late 2024, but specific details about its map (or maps), the three playable characters and their backstories, a story synopsis, new gameplay features, and how it will be integrated with Grand Theft Auto Online.

Frankly, the very idea that that much info could have L***ed online sounds too good to be true and if one, far more trustworthy, source is to be believed, it is.

The Google document containing the leak has since been removed from Reddit, but we were able to find . All the text is blacked out, but you can easily read it by highlighting it.

The information still being available further suggests that the leak is fake since, if it wasn’t, Rockstar would have issued a copyright takedown to prevent it from being spread. Although whoever wrote it seems to know this and claims that Rockstar isn’t taking it down to avoid enforcing the .

‘They’ve allowed thousands of fake leaks to survive. Taking this down, out of all of them would prove the legitimacy,’ it reads.

This isn’t exactly the strongest defence, since games companies seem to rarely care about this. Activision has happily struck down and Hideo Kojima even asked for a website to delete its report on his , despite it not leaking much to begin with.
