A GTA 6 tease may have been hiding in plain sight since the PlayStation Showcase. Earlier this month, Sony put on a brand new PlayStation Showcase, featuring Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Remake, Marvel's Wolverine, God of War Ragnarok, and a variety of other games coming to both PS4 and PS5. Included were GTA 5 and GTA Online, or more specifically, the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of this game that have been flooded with hate recently. As you would expect, what the PlayStation Showcase didn't have was GTA 6. No trailer, no teaser, no nothing, or so we thought. While there may have not been a GTA 6 trailer or a teaser at the event, some Grand Theft Auto fans think there was a GTA 6 tease hidden in plain sight in the trailer for the "expanded and enhanced" version of GTA 5.
At one point during the trailer, there's a vehicle with a license plate that seemingly spells out: "6 is a late 90's." In other words, Grand Theft Auto fans think this license plate is teasing that the game takes place in the late 90s.
Now, Rockstar Games has a pretty well-documented reputation for teasing its upcoming games via its current games, which gives this speculation more weight. Further, there's no denying this would be a pretty big coincidence if it's not a tease. However, there's a major problem with this speculation. According to various rumors and reports, the game is set in modern times. The late 90s doesn't really qualify as modern times. Of course, these reports could be wrong, but they've come from more than one reliable source.

For now, take all of this for what it is: speculation. Of course, Rockstar Games or a developer at it could squash this speculation with a comment, but don't expect this to happen. Rockstar Games has a "no comment" reputation that it never breaks.
