Twitter user accurately ‘predicted’ GTA 6 release date in tweet made over ten years ago

Twitter user accurately ‘predicted’ GTA 6 release date in tweet made over ten years ago

Wait, did someone actually manage to guess the GTA 6 release date before anyone else?

It was already one of the most anticipated releases in the gaming world, but add a trailer leak into the mix, and the hype around Grand Theft Auto VI became nothing short of massive.

Publisher Rockstar Games confirmed it would be released in 2025, with the first trailer dropping back in December.

This was a bit earlier than anticipated, after it was leaked online - and so far it's been viewed an impressive 165 million times on YouTube, earning it the Guinness World Record for the most viewed video game trailer in 24 hours.

The trailer brought new info - revealing the series would be returning to the Miami-inspired location of Vice City, and it would have its first female protagonist, Lucia.

The series is so hugely popular, there's been mass speculation about pretty much every aspect of the game.

However, it looks like someone made a prediction about it way back on December 10 in 2013 that was 100% accurate.

X user Nick Kamrada, whose handle is @Kamrada_13, posted on the social media platform more than a decade ago, when it was still called Twitter, writing: "I bet GTA 6 doesn't come out till like 2025."

Given we know that to be true (unless of course something delays that, but for now that info is correct), the post has resurfaced and a Reddit thread has people talking.

One user wrote: "I don't think anyone was really shocked that he was right lol".

Another said: "I thought everyone knew that it's coming in 2025". Well, yes we do now. But we didn't in 2013.

Resident GTA psychic Nick Kamrada, whose X profile says 'Ohio U. Baseball Alum | Real Estate Investor', has pinned his original post on X.

But back to a few things we do know... mostly.

Rockstar has vowed that Grand Theft Auto VI will be the biggest and most immersive game in the series yet.

Some reports have even suggested that around one billion dollars has been spent on its development, so you'd expect it to be impressive.

And it better be - GTA V came out in 2013, so by the time GTA VI comes out developers will have had 12 years to upgrade it.

That's a long time to make some impressive finishing touches.

And those will pay off because some have predicted the game could make around $1 billion to $1.5 billion in sales within 24 hours when its released.
