The above-mentioned tweet has gained a lot of traction recently, stating that Rockstar Games may officially reveal GTA 6 on October 29, 2022. Interestingly, many fans and insiders are of the opinion that this might really happen.
Again, fans should note that there is no concrete proof to substantiate these claims, as the only element all of these October announcement speculations rely on are patterns and observations fans have noticed with regards to previous Rockstar Games.
Given below are some of the observations pointing towards the possibility that GTA 6 will be revealed in October.
GTA: Vice City’s 20th anniversary
GTA Vice City’s 20th anniversary is this year. GTA 6 is long rumoured set in reimagined VC (Miami). And GTA V’s 10 years anniversary launch is in 2023 (next year). GTA 6’s announcement this year and release in 2023 makes sense. We will see. #GTA6

As revealed in the tweet above, the reason why many fans feel that GTA 6 may at least release a trailer in October is because GTA: Vice City celebrates its 20th anniversary next month.
Obviously, this is a monumental day for Rockstar Games, so the best way they can celebrate it is by giving fans a glimpse of the upcoming game.
Based on the recent leak, fans have seen that GTA 6 will take place in Vice City, so it makes even more sense to release a trailer or teaser for the upcoming title as a way to invite the audience back to the iconic city.

If fans look at the previous announcement dates for other major Rockstar Games titles, they will find that most announcements are made in the month of October and are generally accompanied by some sort of a teaser or official artwork.
For example, Grand Theft Auto 5 was announced in the month of October 2011, while Red Dead Redemption 2 was teased in the same month, but on 2016.
Furthermore, the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Definitive Edition was also announced last year in October. Based on previous trends, this month is perfect for Rockstar Games to release information about Grand Theft Auto 6.
Rockstar Games’ message regarding the leak

— Rockstar Games (@RockstarGames) September 19, 2022
In this message, readers should focus on this particular sentence:
“We will update everyone again soon and, of course, will properly introduce you to this next game when it is ready.”
While this might be an overanalysis, fans can argue that, after this leak, Rockstar Games may just reveal the trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 next month and the wording of this statement points to that fact.
Moreover, many in the community feel that Rockstar Games should go ahead with an early announcement, as showing fans what the game officially looks like will take away the leaks’ relevance and render them pointless.
Once again, fans should remember that this is just speculation and is unlikely. But there is a high possibility that something related to Grand Theft Auto 6 will be announced, be it a release date or the official logo.
These are some of the major reasons why Grand Theft Auto 6 might be revealed in the month of October. None of these theories have been confirmed or proven yet, so fans should not take any information from this article as fact.
