Rockstar's Unannounced Game Leak Gets The Rumor Mill Turning

An apparent leak from Rockstar Games has fans speculating yet again about the future of the company and its juggernaut Grand Theft Auto franchise.

The rumors were kicked off when Rockstar Games senior designer Ian Gander made an update to his LinkedIn profile. Having worked with the company for several years, Gander of course has a rather impressive resume. He worked on "[d]esign and implemention of various missions and gameplay features" for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto 5. Even if they may not immediate recognize Gander's name, fans have become familiar with his work when riding across the plains or robbing a jewelry store (virtually, of course).


ComicBook.com reported that Gander had recently updated the Rockstar Games portion of his profile. In addition to GTA 5 and RDR 2, Gander also put "unannounced title(s): TBC," or "to be confirmed." The listing has since been edited to only reflect the prior two games. 

While this doesn't tell fans much, it does make it clear that Rockstar Games is officially in development on at least one unannounced project. Given Gander's experience with the Grand Theft Auto franchise, it's easy to assume that this title will be GTA 6. However, GTA 6's development has already been previously confirmed (albeit without an entirely official announcement), which makes one wonder if Rockstar Games has even more mysterious projects in the works. The fact that Gander has since removed this section of his profile would suggest that the developer might not want to tip its hand just yet. Perhaps Gander is adding in the rumored GTA Online content that will bring back GTA 5's protagonists? Or is this related to the possible remasters of older GTA titles?


The fan response to this apparent leak has been rather mixed, mostly because of how vague it seems to be. Some people believe that there isn't enough reason to get excited, just yet. One response to the news said that it seemed like "nothing of consequence" had been confirmed.  

However, there is another interesting theory involving the letters "TBC." One user on Twitter has speculated that the "TBC" could actually stand for "The Bully Chronicles," which would mean that Rockstar could finally be making the Bully followup that fans have been asking for. Of course, this user could have been joking around, but it's always nice to dream, right?

As with all things Rockstar, fans will simply have to wait until the company decides to make an official announcement. In the meantime, gamers can look forward to the next-gen release of GTA 5, coming later this year.
