Even though it's not out until 2025, the next Grand Theft Auto is still a hot topic in the gaming world. Months after the first GTA 6 trailer, players expect its launch to be one of the biggest in gaming's history, so it's hard to blame them for being excited.

The franchise has been one of the strongest sales constants in gaming, and the latest instalment has already been dubbed a dramatic event waiting to happen. GTA 6 has been coming for a long time, and now, fans reckon they've found some major leaks about what to expect when it eventually releases.

GTA 6 players think the campaign length has been leaked

The Twitter account GTAVIGosssip thinks its found the all-important evidence that might tell us what to expect from the GTA 6 campaign, especially when it comes to its length. As campaign length is a big selling point, players are losing their minds over it.

The account claims it has seen a LinkedIn page of a Rockstar Games developer that reveals details about the gameplay of GTA 6. The image is of horrible quality and only captures a small area of text, but it mentions "thunderstorms" and claims something is between "1-40 hours."

Fans have naturally decided this has to be a reference to the campaign, but as it's an incredibly sketchy source, don't rest your expectations on the leak. Still, it's amazing to see how willing fans are to trust a source with very little to go on. Excitement for the game goes a long way.

Obviously, some aren't immediately taking the bait. As the account clarifies, the timescale mentioned could be about the amount of time spent in bug testing. Critics are coming down hard on the post, while the account ushers some responses into the "hidden replies" category.

One critic complained, "This is misleading. The leak, if it's even real, does not at all confirm or indicate the length of the story of the game. The text says that they need 40 hours of work to go over the J&L (probably referring to Jason and Lucia) to verify that bugs and glitches are gone. That's all."

Fans are often willing to believe whatever thrills them, but this tweet doesn't pass many of their filters. Considering we're so starved of GTA news, many will take anything offered to them regarding new information, and it's hard to blame them. Just make sure you're sceptical enough to spot the grift.
