Grand Theft Auto 6 fans have become so desperate for information they’ve convinced themselves that the moon is teasing an upcoming reveal Latest


We’re all far too familiar with the feeling of sheer desperation when waiting for information on our favourite upcoming game. I’ve been guilty of it, too—combing through trailers frame-by-frame, and devouring every Discord and Reddit theory I can find. Something I can’t say I’ve done is determine that the moon (yes, the actual real-life moon) is pivotal to an upcoming reveal. You know who can say that, though? A handful of fans who are eagerly awaiting Grand Theft Auto 6.

The theory cropped up on Twitter and Reddit, believing that a big announcement for the game is imminent according to GamesRadar. It stems from a promotional image from Rockstar’s latest update for Grand Theft Auto Online’s Moon Festival event. Two characters are stood in front of the game’s Vinewood sign with the majority of it conveniently obscured, leaving only the letters “VI” completely free from any coverage. With VI being the number six in Roman numerals, it’s understandably set some fans’ radars off.

But what does that have to do with the moon, I hear you ask? Well, people smarter (and more hungry for info) than me—like Reddit user ApprehensiveTop8927 and Twitter user Dirty_Work—have deduced that the moon in the image is in the Waning Gibbous phase. Guess when the real moon is entering the Waning Gibbous phase? You guessed it, today (October 2) and then again on November 1.
