A single picture of a home within the remastered model of GTA: San Andreas has sparked fan hypothesis that it’s, in truth, the primary screenshot of Grand Theft Auto 6.
Posted on GTA Boards, the picture is discovered amongst pictures on the wall of San Andreas’ UFO-themed Lil’ Probe’Inn and, considerably appropriately, has kicked off a brand new conspiracy principle – that Rockstar has surreptitiously tucked the primary picture of GTA 6 into its newest remasters.
The picture, which you’ll see within the tweet under (each as an in-game screenshot and an artificially uprezzed model), merely reveals a front-on view of a nondescript home, albeit with a UFO hanging above it. The intrigue comes from the truth that even essentially the most ardent GTA followers can not seem to find the place that home mannequin has come from.

The top quality of the visuals within the picture means followers do not suppose it comes from GTA Trilogy itself, however the home seemingly cannot be discovered inside GTA 5, both. That is inevitably led to dialogue round the place the picture has come from, and why Rockstar would come with it – particularly in a room filled with UFO references, famously one of many GTA collection’ hotbeds of fan theory-crafting.
Earlier rumours have instructed that GTA 6 might return to a Miami-inspired setting, and GTA Boards consumer igrobar tracked down a real-life home in Boca Raton (situated simply north of Miami) that bears hanging similarities to the screenshot. Rockstar is thought for reimagining real-life buildings inside its fictional cities, and followers have latched onto the concept that this picture is a concrete trace to the setting.
As attractive as all that is, it is in fact nothing greater than hypothesis at this level – the picture might simply as simply be unused idea imagery, environmental testing, or just a picture made or repurposed for the sport. We have contacted Rockstar for remark.
Whether or not it is a picture of GTA 6 or not, it appears we have now a very long time to attend to really play the sport. Whereas we all know it is in improvement, latest experiences have instructed the sport will launch in 2024 or 2025, which considerably tallies with Take-Two getting ready for a serious surge in massive sport releases. We have additionally heard that Dr. Dre is making new music for GTA, and that Rockstar has been engaged on some impressive-sounding NPC tech.
