Rockstar Games Apparently Muted 'GTA 6' On YouTube Because It's Sick Of Fans Mentioning It

It looks like Rockstar Games has gotten so fed up with people petitioning for Grand Theft Auto VI that it decided to mute mentions of the next game on its YouTube channel.


Honestly, I sort of see where it's coming from. The company has been continually supporting Grand Theft Auto Online and working on the next-gen versions of Grand Theft Auto V for some time now. With every trailer and every update, players call out for a completely different game and even dislike-bomb the content they put out.

However, all this clamouring for Grand Theft Auto VI is indicative of fans' perspective on the persistence of Grand Theft Auto V. The game came out eight years ago for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and while Rockstar Games has had its hands full with Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online, it's stunning to think that the developer is tight-lipped over the future of this extremely successful series.

With this filter on its YouTube channel, users who mention "GTA 6" in their comment will not see their message appear anywhere else. Twitter user Not_StrangeMan found this out when they typed and sent "GTA 6" in a comment on a video from Rockstar Games and it didn't pop up when they looked at the video on their other YouTube account. Take a look:


However, it's not a wholly comprehensive ban on mentions of Grand Theft Auto VI. If you use the Roman numerals, that will circumvent the filter. Also, the phrase hasn't been muted anywhere else on social media like Rockstar Games' official Facebook or Twitter channels. So I'm not sure what the company hopes to achieve here, but I'm nearly certain that fans are just going to intensify their calls for any content on the next Grand Theft Auto game as a result.

A report from earlier this summer on Grand Theft Auto VI seems to suggest that it'll be set in Vice City. Prolific Battlefield and Call of Duty leaker Tom Henderson said that the game would take us to a modern day version of the iconic location and that the map would be constantly changing to tie in with Grand Theft Auto Online. Then, a Rockstar Games employee posted this photo while on holiday and the speculation went into overdrive.
