Fans are receiving emails about participating in a GTA 6 beta testing, but it's uncertain if it's from Rockstar.
00:00
Fans are receiving emails about potential partnership for beta testing GTA 6.
The email claims to be from Rockstar Games and offers a beta version of the game.
It mentions the game features and a release date of October 2024.
There is uncertainty about the authenticity of the email.
The email claiming to offer a beta version of GTA 6 is likely a scam.
02:16
The sender's name is just "Rockstar Games" and not an official email address.
Rockstar has not officially announced the name or any details about GTA 6.
The grammar and wording in the email is suspicious and inconsistent.
The email claiming a pre-order beta for GTA 6 is a scam, as Rockstar does not do pre-release betas and has issued warnings about such scams in the past.
04:35
Rockstar does not give hard release dates via email.
There have been no betas for the actual base game before release.
Rockstar had to issue a warning about pre-release beta scams for GTA 5.
The email may be an attempt to gather information or scam people out of money.
Be cautious of GTA 6 pre-order scams, as there are already sites offering pre-orders despite no official announcements from Rockstar.
06:53
Scams for pre-ordering GTA 6 are already prevalent, even though Rockstar has not announced any details about the game.
One example is a website called gamivo, which is already offering GTA 6 pre-orders, despite no official information from Rockstar.
The video warns viewers to be cautious and double-check before falling for such scams, as they are likely to increase once official announcements are made.

01:46agreement please let us know by replying
01:48to this email if you are interested we'd
01:50be happy to answer any questions you may
01:53have best regard Rockstar Games so right
01:56off the bat if you were to just skim
01:58over this and get lost in the excitement
02:01you might say oh my gosh so much just
02:03got confirmed there the name of the game
02:06itself Grand Theft Auto 6 that it's
02:08going to be taking place in Vice City
02:10that it's going to have two main
02:12characters and that there's going to be
02:14a handful of other things the game will
02:16be releasing in 2024 and that there is
02:19going to be a beta version of the game
02:21and they're going to be giving it away
02:22to certain people However unfortunately
02:26I'm here to tell you that this is very
02:28likely just a massive scam so right off
02:31the bat a couple of red flags here
02:33number one we can only see that the
02:36person who has sent this email has named
02:39themselves Rockstar Games that's the way
02:42things typically work with Gmail and
02:45other email inboxes is you can create
02:47whatever name you want but the actual
02:50URL of your email that's what's
02:53important and unless it comes from an at
02:56rockstargames.com which is all of their
02:59Rockstar Games official emails it's not
03:01them it's an imposter the second obvious
03:05red flag here is the fact that Rockstar
03:07themselves haven't even called the game
03:09Grand Theft Auto 6. now I think it's
03:12pretty clear and obvious just from a
03:14marketing point of view from the fact
03:16that everyone is already anticipating
03:17that's the name of the game the way
03:19they've gone about doing other titles
03:22like Red Dead Redemption to Red Dead
03:23Redemption 2 GTA 4 to 5 so on and so on
03:26it's going to be called GTA 6 but they
03:28haven't even officially announced that
03:30they haven't announced anything about it
03:32that it's going to be taking place in
03:33Vice City that it's going to be you know
03:35switching between two main characters we
03:37know parts of that thanks to the leaks
03:39and thanks to various reports from
03:41journalists and insiders but Rockstar
03:43haven't confirmed any of this
03:44information obviously in fact they
03:46haven't even said a single thing about
03:49the game the next red flag is some of
03:51the grammar and some of the wording the
03:53first sentence that jumped out to me as
03:55odd was Grand Theft Auto 6 is the sequel
03:58to the famous series from Rockstar Games
04:00well we know that they're the ones
04:02sending the message why would they name
04:05drop themselves in the actual message
04:08and then right after that it says in it
04:10players return to the popular among fans
04:13Vice City a sunny City surrounded by the
04:16ocean that just sounds really stupid
04:19when you say it out loud again it's like
04:22a sentence that doesn't make any sense
04:23and then right after that players will
04:25be able to drive a variety of vehicles
04:27including water that doesn't make sense
04:29either we're going to be driving water
04:31or water craft vehicles or vehicles that
04:35can drive on the water that doesn't make
04:38any sense and when they describe the
04:40game itself it just doesn't add up to
04:43something Rockstar would talk about and
04:44they've already dropped the release date
04:47which is going to be October 2024 that
04:49might legitimately be when GTA 6 comes
04:52out but Rockstar isn't in a email like
04:55this going to give anyone a hard release
04:58date so we obviously know that this is
05:01just a fake or a scam or a a message
05:04that just is meant to trick and fool
05:07people and the last big red flag is at
05:10least so far Rockstar have not done
05:13betas yes they have done Red Dead
05:16online's beta but they haven't done a
05:19beta for the actual base game before it
05:22comes out in fact this scam was so
05:25prominent with GTA 5. Rockstar actually
05:28had to put out a warning for it so this
05:31is the warning that Rockstar Games put
05:32out you can obviously see there the GTA
05:355 logo and then it says please note
05:37there's no pre-release beta test for
05:40Grand Theft Auto 5. if you see ads or
05:43solicitations to join a beta program
05:45beware as this is likely some type of
05:47online phishing scam for all the
05:50official details on Grand Theft Auto 5
05:51stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire
05:54that's like a legit message that they
05:56had to put out to warn people that there
05:59is no beta so I guess now circling all
06:02this back to the original message the
06:04subject line was make money with Grand
06:06Theft Auto 6. I can only imagine that
06:09the person or individual sending out
06:12this email is trying to get information
06:14in some way shape or form and I can
06:16guarantee you there would have been some
06:18sort of deposit or down payment you
06:20would have to make like hey send us
06:22fifty dollars and we'll send you the
06:24beta that fifty dollars can be used when
06:27you actually get the real version of
06:29Grand Theft Auto 6 and then lo and
06:31behold you've scammed someone out of 50
06:33bucks and if you do that a couple times
06:35or a couple hundred times you can
06:37obviously make a lot of money from that
06:38so this is my warning to you guys this
06:40is definitely a scam this is not
06:43something you want to get involved in I
06:45know it can you know really make your
06:47eyeballs pop when you see an email that
06:49might come from Rockstar with a subject
06:51line Grand Theft Auto 6 but unless it
06:53comes officially from them on their
06:55newswire page or on their verified
06:57social media it's something that's
06:59probably going to be a scam or in this
07:02instance just isn't real at all and
07:05obviously just due to GTA 6's popularity
07:07and the fact that everyone in the world
07:10knows it's going to be one of the
07:11biggest video games of all time these
07:13scams are not uncommon in fact there's
07:16so many sites that already even have the
07:19ability to pre-order the game even
07:21though it isn't even been talked about
07:24yet by Rockstar there's this one website
07:27I don't even know how you pronounce I
07:28think it's gamivo but they actually sell
07:31games and gift cards and stuff like that
07:33and they actually have Grand Theft Auto
07:366 GTA 6 pre-order and as you guys can
07:39see there on the surface level it looks
07:41pretty legit you have a Grand Theft Auto
07:436 logo you can see it's from Rockstar
07:45you can see it's available in the United
07:47States and in what languages and at the
07:50very top it does say this is a pre-order
07:52and the key will be delivered upon the
07:54games to be announced release date this
07:57is not a steam version of the game the
07:58GTA 6 activate Invasion CD key code
08:01should be activated on Rockstar Games
08:03Social Club so yeah there's going to be
08:05a lot of scams like this out there this
08:07is just one example to go alongside uh
08:10the other one I showed you in this video
08:12so just be careful out there that's my
08:13warning to you guys is this is
08:15definitely going to start to ramp up and
08:17especially as Rockstar officially
08:19announces details you'll start to see
08:20stuff like this so just be alert just be
08:23aware it's kind of a nice little
08:24friendly reminder that you got to be
08:27cautious out there and always be sure to
08:29double check what's going on but anyways
