After a mysterious tweet from Sony on its TikTok about legendary game introductory music, the Grand Theft Auto community went into a flurry of activity. Shortly, it appears that the 20th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City may be the occasion for an announcement of Grand Theft Auto VI.
When it comes to leaks in the Grand Theft Auto community, it seems as though the adage “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me again; fool me three times, right, no one posts from this leaker again since he's plucking things out of thin air” has become the norm in recent years.
Despite the rumors about October 21, it'll be really funny when Rockstar Games doesn't drop an announcement when so many people are expecting it. You should know by now that Rockstar loves to disappoint its customers.#GTA6 #GTAVI

And that was before the major Rockstar Games security breach that exposed early gameplay footage of Grand Theft Auto VI, including a male and female protagonist and set in a revamped Vice City. Since that September day, supporters have been piecing together as much information as they can from the leaked files.
And a TikTok is what? The official Sony account shared a video entitled “[point of view]: you load up one of the most legendary intro tunes on your PS2,” which included the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas games.
Naturally, this sparked a lot of discussion on the best video game soundtracks, and one person even recommended that the Sony TikTok account share the opening sequence to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City next. The account then responded with the eyes emoji and the words “20th anniversary is coming up too.”
Gamers believe Sony has let the secret out of the bag by revealing that the new game will be set in Vice City. But I'm not sure this means that on the 20th anniversary of the original game, Grand Theft Auto VI will be unveiled.
Since many in the gaming community expressed their condolences to Rockstar Games in the wake of the hack's aftermath, I think it would be in terrible taste to build up excitement for an announcement that the company hadn't already hinted at. Time is running out to find out who is correct.
