The Grand Theft Auto series has always been a well-anticipated release. But the enthusiasm surrounding GTA 6 is unlike anything we’ve seen before, primarily due to the 90-leaked videos that came through the Rockstar Hack. Since then, the speculations have been endless.
From alleged leaks showcasing realistic bullet physics and car damage to the buzz about a more extensive map that might even include the island of Cuba, the rumor mill is working overtime. There’s even chatter about a dynamic weather system and a relationship meter system, which could improve gameplay considerably.
Take-Two Interactive is the parent company of Rockstar Games. In a recent interview, Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two, gave news about their expectations in revenue for the following year. Take-Two Interactive has predicted $8 Billion in revenue for the fiscal year 2024 to 2025.
And fans speculate that GTA 6 could be the only game that could generate such a success. At the same time, no official announcement has been made so far. But, Take Two’s projections have led to widespread speculation that something big is on the horizon.
Take-Two leaked voice note fake?
A new leak that supposedly directly comes from Take-Two has been doing rounds on Twitter/X. The leak is a voice note from Take-Two Interactive’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick. But the authenticity of the voice note is in question.
The Twitter-sphere exploded when a tweet from @GTA6posts claimed that a leaked voice note from Take-Two Interactive’s CEO revealed “BREAKING: apparently there’s a leaked voice note from the Take 2 interactive CEO where he discusses the release for GTA 6, he says “An announcement is expected very soon this October 23rd’ the next GTA is expected to launch on October 24.”
This post has been taken down and reads, “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.” Further, another GTA 6 leaks account has reposted the voice note on the Twitter/X platform.

It could be that the post was removed because it was false and impersonating their CEO. Conversely, it could have been taken down because it was fake. While the voice note and subsequent tweets are intriguing, they should be taken with a grain of salt. GTA 6 is one of the most anticipated games in history.
And it’s not uncommon for rumors to swirl without official announcements. The takedown could be a strategy to control the narrative around the game rather than a confirmation of the leak’s validity. Until Rockstar or Take-Two come out of their silent seal, there is no way to know for 100% the authenticity of any leak.
