Grand Theft Auto fans were left disappointed last week, as Rockstar failed to officially unveil the new game, despite rumours to the contrary.
While the GTA 6 release date remains a mystery, one person who might have an idea about when the game will launch is actor Jorge Consejo.
Consejo is said to have a starring role as ‘The Mexican’ in GTA 6. That’s according to the actor’s CV, which describes the appearance as a ‘featured’ role in the game.
One fan even asked Consejo about his alleged appearance in GTA 6, to which the actor replied: “I can neither confirm nor deny this. But I did read your tweet ;)”
After months of silence on the project, Consejo has posted a brand new update about his rumoured appearance in GTA 6.
“While I read every message from you, please know that because of contract stipulations sometimes I’m unable to comment on certain projects,” he writes. “Please don’t feel ignored or unseen. I appreciate and value every single one of you.”
It’s not much to go on, but the talk of “contract stipulations” would suggest that Consejo is involved in something big.
And what could be bigger than GTA 6?
Previous rumours have suggested GTA 6 will be set in the 1970s or 1980s, and feature a single playable protagonist.
Likewise, the next Grand Theft Auto game will allegedly take place in Vice City and Rio de Janeiro.
It’s also been claimed that the Grand Theft Auto sequel would launch on PS5 and Xbox Series. This ties in to a previous leak that suggested GTA 6 would have a 2020 release date, although this now looks highly unlikely.
Despite rumours that GTA 6 will take place in Vice City, Express Online readers would prefer it if the sequel shifted the action to London.
In a poll with more than 3,200 votes, nearly 1,500 fans said that GTA 6 should be set in London.
That’s compared to just 720 votes for Vice City, 372 votes for Tokyo, and 336 votes for somewhere else entirely.
The love for London undoubtedly began when UK Drill Insider created a concept video showing what a next-gen Grand Theft Auto would look like in London.
The last time GTA made the trip to London was all the way back in the late 1990s.
Available on PC and the original PlayStation, Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 retained the top-down view from the original games.
While the PSOne spinoff wasn’t exactly a classic, UK Drill Insider’s video has certainly made a return to London a tantalising prospect.
