Fans might get the first hint about the upcoming title this October
A legendary insider, Tez2, has shared some exciting news about an upcoming Grand Theft Auto Online event that might give the first hint about the next game.
In a post on GTAForums, they broke the news by stating:
“16 days before Halloween, Rockstar will start featuring UFOs within GTA Online.”
This implies something big is going to happen in the game next month. The source continued by saying:
"On October 23rd, the stealth UFO will appear instead of the regular UFO model.”
According to them, the arrival of the stealth UFO might coincide with Rockstar giving news about the upcoming title in the series. They stated:
“Rockstar is cautious enough not to do that. But the hint may arrive within the tweet Rockstar will prepare to talk about the UFOs happening...”
It looks like the developers have big plans for the game next month. Fans are advised to take all the rumors and leaks with a grain of salt as nothing has been confirmed by the developers themselves. Whatever the future holds for the series, one can expect to know more about it very soon.
