There’s no way Grand Theft Auto 6 was just teased via Rolling Stone’s latest podcast with Snoop Dogg, surely? Even with Rockstar Games declining the chance to shut down the comments made by the self-proclaimed father of rap, it seems crazy to think that the long-awaited, albeit fabled sixth instalment could have been unveiled through the medium of sound. And yet, here we are.
So, what’s this all about? What exactly is it that Snoop Dogg said to Rolling Stone for us to suddenly flock to the socials to share our thoughts? Well, according to the rapper, he and Dr Dre will be collaborating over a series of upcoming projects — one of which could very well be revolving around the Grand Theft Auto platform.
“I do know he’s in the studio,” Snoop told the Rolling Stone. “I do know he’s making great f—ing music. And some of his music is connected to the GTA game that’s coming out. So I think that will be the way that his music will be released, through the GTA video game.”
GTA video game? Wait — what?
Okay, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves on this one. We do know that the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Edition is set to release in December. And considering Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is, of course, based around the early ’90s, it could mean that Dr Dre is working to implement new tracks into its various in-game radio stations in the future. But that’s just one possibility in a pool of a dozen.
While we don’t know a great deal more about Grand Theft Auto 6, it is worth keeping an ear out for the upcoming Rolling Stone podcast on November 3rd, just in case there’s more detail to explore. Until then, you’ll have to take Snoop’s words with a grain of salt, I’m afraid.
You can tune in to the podcast tomorrow over on SiriusXM’s Volume channel (106). Failing that, you can catch the podcast online from November 3rd.
