This weekend, Reddit user JackOLantern1982 posted a list of features that he claims will be included in GTA 6. The user says he used the information he gathered from someone he knows at Kotaku, and "a dear friend" at GTA's distributor Rockstar Games to compile the long list of details.

According to JackOLantern1982, GTA 6 will be set in both Vice City and also a new fictional city based on Rio de Janeiro. He claims there will be some missions in Liberty City and perhaps Cuba. He also alleges it's "heavily inspired" by Netflix's hit series Narcos with a timeframe spanning from the 1970s-1980s. He goes on to assert that there will be only one male protagonist and the AIDS epidemic will be worked into the story. In addition to the information above, he included other elaborate details that sparked interest. 

While this seems like a realistic episodic game, Forbes spoke to video gaming journalist and insider Jason Schreier who stated that the list is likely fake. Not only are these storylines too realistic, but also Rockstar hasn't even announced that they are working on GTA 6. Although it is assumed something is in the works to follow up the massive success of Red Dead Redemption 2, it is doubtful that JackOLantern1982 has gained access to what Rockstar is cooking up. Still, it is fun to imagine what will happen in the new GTA
