Grand Theft Auto 6 Leak Reveals Grim Story Details Diving Into HIV and Immigration Struggles In the 1970s

A recent leak paints a human narrative that isn't afraid to tap into controversial issues, much like in the games past.

Earlier today, we shared a massive Grand Theft Auto 6 leak that covered everything from timeline details, to more on the alleged protagonist. But the leak was big, so we wanted to do a little deep dive into some of the bigger points shared over in the original post, including Rockstar’s continued trend of never shying away from a dark or controversial narrative.

According to a recent post over on Reddit, one user is claiming that they’ve hit the motherload when it comes to Grand Theft Auto 6 goodness. One of the bullet points they addressed centered around some of the themes that will be seen throughout the game, including its inspiration found in Netflix’s Narcos. 

So says the Reddit leak, “You play as an up and coming drug lord-wannabe named “Ricardo”. Another key character called “Kacey” is a part of the narrative. You start off as a grunt doing runs as a cocaine smuggler from Vice City to the new large South American area (and visa versa?) before making connections with big time drug lords and making your way up. Multiple cities. There will also be a GIANT prison which will play a part in the game.”

There will reportedly be a huge focus on the drug empire during this time, which should be to the surprise of no one, as the Redditor reveals “It will discuss topics such as HIVE and the immigration crisis of the time [with] a fictional version of Fidel Castro.” Whether or not this is true remains to be seen, all leaks should be taken with a grain of salt after all, but it does pose an interesting narrative with parallels that could easily be seen in today’s climate. 

What do you think about everything the leaks have revealed so far? What do you hope to see from the future of Grand Theft Auto 6?
