For the most part it's been fake leaks regarding Grand Theft Auto 6 exploiting the seemingly boundless hype for the unannounced game.
Now, an all new attempt to take advantage of gullible fans has been reported.
Fake GTA 6 advertisements and trailers are popping up on YouTube.
These ads splice together footage from GTA 5 and other games. Fans have identified footage from The Crew, Forza, Need for Speed and Saints Row.
These ads were first reported on r/GTA6 by u/LegalWallhacks.
The purpose of these ads isn't clear, but they likely are collecting data.
Chances are that legal action will be taken soon enough and these fake ads will be removed.
