‘Grand Theft Auto 6′ is likely in production — but recent reports are inaccurate

The “Grand Theft Auto” video game series is ridiculously popular.
The last game in the series, “Grand Theft Auto V,”
moved more than 70 million units as of November 2016
— it
originally launched in September 2013. Most entire game
franchises never reach that kind of ridiculous number of
units sold, let alone standalone games.

Given that, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear that the
company behind “Grand Theft Auto” is working on the next entry in
the series. It’s an expectation, even! But the
recent reports of “Grand Theft Auto 6″ based on a
motion-capture actor’s resume are totally fake.

mod the game to look even better than it originally
did.

The
alleged resume of Tim Neff
, an actor-for-hire who
appears to has done some motion capture work, is to blame
for the recent reports of “Grand Theft Auto 6″ being in
production. His fake resume even referred to the game as “Grand
Theft Auto 6″ — presumably the game will use the traditional
Roman numerals it has in the past (“Grand Theft Auto VI”). Neff
confirmed that the resume is fake over
Twitter
, repeatedly replying to people asking him about his
involvement.

Though Neff did do some work in previous “Grand Theft Auto”
games, he hasn’t been involved in production for a new
“Grand Theft Auto” game. Of note: Rockstar Games hasn’t
officially announced a new “Grand Theft Auto” game.

appeared in a variety of television shows and films. His full,
actual resume is available on IMDB.

Other than the name “Grand Theft Auto 6″ showing up on the
faked resume, a new “Grand Theft Auto” game has never been
officially announced or given a name. As such, there’s no
information about one other than what we can safely guess
based on past games.

It’s likely to be an open world-style game, for instance, and
it’s likely to be set in the modern era; it’s also likely to be
set in a major city, like New York or Los Angeles (albeit
slightly fictionalized — Los Angeles became “San Andreas” in
“Grand Theft Auto V,” for instance). 

Rockstar declined our request for comment.

Update: This post has been updated to reflect
the new information from Neff’s Twitter account, calling the
résumé floating around the web as fake.
