A surprising amount of Grand Theft Auto 6 rumors have been swirling lately. There are rumors about Grand Theft Auto 6's announcement either at The Game Awards 2019 or the PlayStation Awards 2019, there are rumors about Grand Theft Auto 6's release date, and there are rumors about the game's codename being Project Americas. It's all a lot to take in. Yet here goes yet another rumor, reportedly confirming the game via a PlayStation Store advertisement and its release date.

The rumor stems from a large number of phone screenshots shared online showing search results for the term "GTA 6." Each of the search results shows an advertisement referring to an unannounced Grand Theft Auto 6 PlayStation 5 bundle that will apparently launch in the holiday season of 2020. The original screenshots showed the advertisement in Spanish, which when translated shows that it's for a PlayStation Megapack, which would be bundled with GTA 6. The ad claims to a link to a way to buy the bundle and imgs directly from the official PlayStation storefront.

Clearly, the advertisements are highly unreliable. Not only can advertisements be spoofed on mobile phones just as easily as on the PC, but it's also entirely possible for false advertisements to be bought and spread. The advertisement itself is very suspicious, too. Not only doesn't it list what PlayStation console the game is for, but it doesn't refer to "pre-order" either. It's an ad that insinuates this bundle is already available. Finally, the ad refers to both the GTA 6 name and its rumored codename, Project Americas, which isn't something a serious ad would ever do.

Proving the point, following news of the Spanish advertisement, even more supposed screenshots have popped up. There's even one in English which does refer to the PS5 and a holiday launch. However, that ad has some goofy misspellings that make it an obvious fake. All of the follow-up screenshots seem to add to the silliness of the situation. After all, it neither makes sense for Grand Theft Auto 6 to launch as part of a PlayStation bundle nor will pre-orders begin for a game clearly so far out from even a rumored release date.

While these screenshots and rumors for Grand Theft Auto 6 are almost certainly fake, that doesn't mean that there aren't other rumors that may have value. One rumor hinted that Grand Theft Auto 6 is only now getting into full-speed development and is planned for 2022. That lines up with what seems to be an increase in Rockstar job listings for developers. Another rumor stemmed from a leaked depiction of Liberty City from a Rockstar developer's portfolio. All that's really clear is that it's much too early to make any assumptions regarding what Rockstar is doing next, but a Grand Theft Auto 6 is inevitable - eventually.

Grand Theft Auto 6 is rumored to be in development for unspecified platforms.
