RUMOR: GTA Online Shirt’s Secret Message Also Includes GTA 6 Release Date?

Did Rockstar hide multiple secret messages in a t-shirt?

With GTA 6’s trailer drop date generating massive hype, fans of the franchise are now focused on finding more information about the game’s actual release date. Turns out, a custom shirt that was added to GTA Online 6 months ago may have a cryptic message that ‘translates to one day will reveal all.’

GTA 6 Release Date Leaked aia GTA Online T-Shirt?

GTA Online released a t-shirt with a string of numbers on it. If you look at the numbers carefully, you will see the number sequence – 1252309. This is the time and date of the first trailer drop as shared by Rockstar Games – 12.5.23 09 am ET aka 5th December 2023.

Who would’ve thought Rockstar Games would hide the trailer drop release date in a t-shirt that released 6 months ago? Is it merely a coincidence or carefully planned?

Surprisingly, GTA FOrum member ItsLachieNZ mentioned this discovery back on October 19, 2023.

This brought the t-shirt into more focus and fans looked at another number sequence 040125 which is 1st April 2025 and many are speculating if this is the actual GTA 6 release date. Of course, this is also April Fool’s Day so it’s highly unlikely Rockstar will release the biggest and most anticipated game in video game history on this day.

While it sounds like a hidden message, this doesn’t align with the window of Take-Two’s statement. Take-Two has told investors to expect “record” levels of revenue for the company in “fiscal 2025”, as reported by VGC. “We remain confident that we are positioning our business for a significant inflection point in fiscal 2025, which we believe will include new record levels of operating performance,” Take-Two CEO and chairman Strauss Zelnick said in a statement.

This particular statement led to guesses that Grand Theft Auto 6 is set for release during the fiscal year 2025 and could be released latest by March 2025. If we’re lucky, we will get the official release date of the game via the first trailer drop, or we might have to wait for more hints in the future because Rockstar sure does know the boost every single drop will generate.
