Grand Theft Auto 6, the highly anticipated sequel to the popular open-world crime game series, has been the subject of many rumors and speculations for years. Fans have been eagerly waiting for any official news from Rockstar Games, the developer and publisher of the franchise. However, a recent online chat between a customer and a British retailer may have revealed the pre-order date for GTA 6.
According to a screenshot shared by Rockstar Universe, a fan account on X, the customer contacted Argos, a UK-based online store, and asked about the availability of GTA 6 for pre-order. The Argos support agent allegedly replied that the game would be available to pre-order on December 12, 2023, for both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. The agent claimed that this information was confirmed by the distributors.
However, when Rockstar Universe contacted Argos via their website, they received a different answer. The Argos support team stated that they had no information about the pre-order or release date of GTA 6, and that the game would be available for pre-booking once the official announcement was made by Rockstar Games.
This discrepancy raises doubts about the authenticity of the leaked chat, as some X users pointed out. They noticed several inconsistencies in the message, such as the use of the American date format, the typo in the word “software”, and the lack of any official logo or artwork for GTA 6. Some users suggested that the chat could have been faked or edited using Photoshop or other tools.
It is also worth noting that Rockstar Games has not confirmed or denied the alleged pre-order date. The company has only announced that the first trailer for GTA 6 will be released in early December, without giving any specific date or details. Therefore, it is possible that the pre-order date could be revealed along with the trailer, or shortly after.
However, until then, fans should be wary of any unofficial sources or claims regarding GTA 6, as they could be scams or hoaxes. GTA 6 is one of the most anticipated games of all time, and it is likely that many people will try to take advantage of the hype and curiosity surrounding it. The best way to stay updated and informed about GTA 6 is to follow the official channels of Rockstar Games and wait for their official announcements.
