The entire gaming community was expecting GTA 6 new screenshots on Wednesday, May 8, 2024. While Rockstar Games did not make any official move on releasing the images, the studio released four images from Grand Theft Auto 5 on Thursday, May 9, 2024. Many fans thought it was a planned troll from Rockstar Games.

Popular data miner Detective (X/@that1detectiv3) reacted by saying:

“Rockstar trolling us with these 4 screenshots… we want the GTA 6 images not this”

Another user named @user1127658 made a comparison between the recent GTA 5 screenshot and a scene from the first GTA 6 trailer.

User THUG_alive2001 (X/@AdamOrgh) was eager to see the Grand Theft Auto 6 second trailer and know more about Jason (the unconfirmed male protagonist).

User Carbon_Star_7 (X/@hallow_sin_08) commented:

“I kinda expected that lol, more news would more likely be the late summer or late fall”

Another user Thebucketguy (X/@Kyblik3) stated:

“Well, there was only said screens, they didn't specify which”

Many other fans also acknowledged Rockstar Games’ way of trolling the player base.
