Fans of GTA 6 are becoming more and more excited about the torture. The community is now even going to the moon to gather clues for the first trailer.
New York – Hardly any other community proves to be as patient as that of GTA. Fans have been waiting for GTA 6 for ten years, and many of them are still very well behaved and full of anticipation. For some others, however, cracks are gradually appearing in their patience. After increasingly crazy theories about the release and announcement of GTA 6, a fan on Reddit is now even looking for clues in the moon – and comes to an absurd conclusion.

GTA 6 Trailer: Fans are spinning a strange theory – Alleged reveal tomorrow, October 3rd
Then the reveal should come according to fans: In the “Gaming Leaks and Rumors” subreddit, many gamers share regular rumors from insiders in the business. Sometimes there are also a few theory pearls directly from the community. According to a current post in the Reddit forum, the GTA reveal should come on October 3, 2023. So at the time of writing that would be tomorrow.
- GTA 6 Reveal – Fan Theory on the Date: 3. October 2023
The assumption is no coincidence. The account u/ApprehensiveTop8927 writes the source in the post – but there is no mention of well-known insiders like Jason Schreier, Tez2 or Tom Henderson. Instead, the moon itself should, indeed, provide proof of the announcement. That sounds even more absurd than another fan theory about the anniversary announcement of GTA 6, but let’s see what the moon has to do with it.
GTA 6: Alleged reveal on October 3rd – This is what the moon has to do with the trailer
These should be the clues: The origin of Reddit’s moon theory lies in a promo image that Rockstar Games recently posted for GTA Online. In it, the developer shows new clothing for the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival event. But the clothes themselves are of less interest; things get much more exciting in the background.
The current moon theory is based on several things that have to do with this image. Be careful, from now on it’s going into real tinfoil hat territory.
The evidence for the October 3rd reveal:
The VINEWOOD letters in the background are obscured so that only VI can be seen – like the Roman 6. GTA games are always numbered with Roman numerals. VI could just as easily mean Vice City.
Announcements and releases for GTA as well as Red Dead Redemption always took place on a Tuesday in October.
The moon in the image from GTA Online is waning, but so far only slightly. The real moon is in the same lunar phase on October 3rd.
October 3rd falls on a Tuesday this year, Rockstar’s favorite day for announcements.
Other fans make fun of aluminum hats: Admittedly, the chain of evidence isn’t complete nonsense. The brain gymnastics that fans are now doing, um these notes about GTA 6 but finding it is increasingly causing ridicule on the Internet. Comments on Reddit are already comparing the supposed leaks from GTA fans with those about the PC port of Bloodborne, which never saw the light of day. “These people desperately need it“ writes GamingWildman in another comment.
Maherylepro also joins the skeptics and writes about the GTA 6 theory: “This is what absolute desperation looks like.“ At the same time, you still ask yourself – what if there’s something to it? We’ll keep a careful eye on the internet on October 3rd, but we wouldn’t believe there would be a trailer. If so, then we hope that Rockstar shows a few features in GTA 6 in the trailer that the competition would like to bring into play.
