According to a well known GTA 6 insider and backer, two major characters from previous episodes could be set to return in the next one. Grand Theft Auto game with each release via PS5 and Xbox Series X. The first of these two characters is Niko Belic, the protagonist of grand theft auto 4. As you may know, Niko Belic is mentioned in GTA 5but the character does not appear in the game. It is not known if this will change in GTA 6. The leaker doesn’t say, but they do claim there will be mention of the character, who plays a very big part in the lore of the show.
“Niko Bellic has never been arrested for his crimes. Stories about ‘The Serb’ are still told in Liberty City from time to time, many news articles mention him, and there’s even a nostalgic documentary about him. “said the lessor. “The acts of grand theft auto 4 causing gigantic power shifts in the underworld and weakening nearly every faction over the course of the game sets the stage for the Von Crastenburg family to grow so rapidly.”
The other character who could be set to return according to the leaker is Michael De Santa, one of the three protagonists of GTA 5. The leaker claims that the actor behind the character, Ned Luke, worked with Rockstar Games. There are rumors that Michael will star in the next big GTA online update, so it’s possible that’s why the pair are working together, but the leaker claims there’s more going on.
“It’s probably in the form of a GTA online DLC, but it’s also very possible that he’ll produce a movie in Vice City. It could be both. We’ll have to wait and see,” the leaker said of the character’s potential return in GTA 6.
All of this information comes from GTA_VI_Leak on Reddit, which gained some recognition after leaking Dr. Dre’s involvement in The contract DLCs. Of course, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt. Not only is it unofficial, but it’s apparently mixed with speculation. As of press time, Rockstar Games has in no way addressed this rumor. We’ll update the story if that changes.
