It started off slow, with proper evidence and not too wild claims. Then things started getting more clickbait-y with the invention of newer and newer rumors with seemingly absolutely no basis in reality, lacking any sort of evidence to back them up. Then we got a slew of data miners showing us segments of code into which some sort of implication was explained in, strenuously, and whether or not it is a real reference to future content or trash fragments of cut content which weren’t cleaned. Further rumors were sparked by popular GTA V YouTubers and “tipsters”, whose mere speculation was immediately taken as possible.
Then it turned out to be true.
Yes, the DLC is called Lowriders. Yes, you do get a set of new missions from Lamar. We’re as surprised as you.
However, with the next DLC not being the only subject of rumors regarding the GTA franchise, the truth behind these rumors might suggest that other GTA related rumors which have been dismissed off hand as bullshit and clickbait could also turn out to be true.
The whole Lowriders affair places the rumors regarding things such as the casino, GTA 6 and other DLC may not be full of lies and conjecture, and have significantly more basis in truth than initially thought. The rumor issue this month really was reason enough to make the community weary, and judgmental against anything regarding rumors on the internet.
How do you guys feel about GTA related rumors?
