GTA 5 voice actor breaks his silence on GTA 6 leaks

While Grand Theft Auto fans are hopeful for news on the inevitable Grand Theft Auto 6, there are more than a few people who are tired of so-called "leakers" spreading misinformation. One of those people is none other than Ned Luke, the voice actor behind the character Michael De Santa in Grand Theft Auto 5. During a livestream on Instagram with fellow GTA 5 voice actor Shawn Fonteno, Luke let his feelings on alleged GTA 6 leaks be known.

"They said that GTA 6's gonna be made [to take place] in Vice City — how do all these people get all this information of what's gonna be what? People, do you not understand?" asks Luke in a clip shared on Twitter. "Do not believe anything that you see on the internet from, you know, uh, BossManF***TheWorld or whatever his name is, or any of those guys. Don't listen to those guys. They have no inside information. They're just clickbait. And if you hear it from Rockstar, then you know."

Luke has a solid point. Rockstar Games has always been tight-lipped when it comes to releasing info regarding upcoming games. In fact, the closest we've seemingly come to getting a confirmation about GTA 6 content was from an actor who claims to be in the game. Just like week, actor Jorge Consejo caused a stir when his updated CV revealed that he had done some work on Grand Theft Auto 6. We still don't know anything concrete about the character of "The Mexican" or what kind of role he plays in the game, but you can be sure that the fandom had a field day with that morsel of info.

The Rockstar leaker that Luke hilariously refers to as "BossManF***TheWorld" is most likely the infamous YouTuber "MrBossFTW." MrBossFTW does a lot of videos related to GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption 2. In the past, MrBossFTW has claimed to have insider information regarding future content from Rockstar Games, which has landed him in hot water once or twice. In fact, this isn't even the first time that MrBossFTW has been criticized by an actor who has worked for Rockstar Games. In the past, voice actor Roger Clark, who portrayed Arthur Morgan in Red Dead Redemption 2, threw some shade at MrBossFTW (spoilers for RDR2's ending).

The reactions to Ned Luke's comments from fans have been pretty positive. It seems that most people are getting a kick out of Luke's honesty, as well as his referring to MrBossFTW by the wrong name.

"I would be deleting my YT channel after this," tweeted one fan. "Getting called out by the people who work on the game you base some of your content on."

To MrBossFTW's credit, he seemed to have a pretty good sense of humor about the entire thing. In fact, as one Twitter user pointed out, MrBossFTW changed his Twitter handle to "BossManFTheWorld." While it's highly unlikely to stay that way permanently, at least it's good to see that he can laugh about getting called out like that by Michael De Santa himself.

It's also worth noting that MrBossFTW isn't alone in the hunt for any and all signs of a new Grand Theft Auto game. Fans of the series have been latching onto every little hint they can find, regardless of how much of a stretch it may be. From new logos being added to Rockstar's website to a race track that, uh, kinda looks like Mexico if you squint, fans of the series keep looking for confirmation of GTA 6 in the strangest of places. Heck, even former Rockstar Games artists aren't safe from the wild speculation. Stephen Bliss learned this the hard way when he posted some very Vice City-looking artwork on his Instagram account a couple of months ago. The images were quickly removed and his next post featured the extremely telling tags "#noideaaboutnewGTA" and "#justpostingimagesILike."

In one of the most egregious examples of people finding hints where there might not be any, some fans flipped out over Rockstar Games sharing a photo from LeBron James' Instagram. The photo shows James chilling in his home with a copy of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on the table in front of him.

This was shared by former Rockstar Games insider Yan2295 with the caption, "Come on, they're just reposting that because it's a cool old picture of Lebron featuring a GTA Vice City case, that's all." This, however, did not stop people from speculating about Rockstar's intentions.

Like Luke said, until we hear it straight from Rockstar, we may just have to be patient. Rockstar will tell us what's up with GTA 6 when the time is right. In the meantime, we'll be sure to keep an eye out for any future GTA 6 rumors.
