While a website going blank isn’t an unusual phenomenon, sometimes it can spark various rumors or speculations. Especially when it comes to the gaming community comprising the fans of a celebrated franchise like the Grand Theft Auto.

 

Now coming back to the latest news, the main website of the Red Dead Redemption developer recently went down on Wednesday. Furthermore, the blackout wasn’t for a lengthy period, though. However, it led to some thinking about a mysterious announcement. The most obvious contender was GTA 6, the yet-to-be-revealed installment in the iconic saga.

A popular account on Twitter, that goes by the name GTAonlineNews, shared a tweet, mentioning that Rockstar Games‘ website had gone totally dark. There was nothing visible on the platform except for a fully black screen. So there was a chance that it was simply related to maintenance purpose rather than the company preparing for a GTA 6 reveal (in everyone’s dreams).

The website resumed working properly after an hour or so, resulting in disappointment for those who were making speculations. Among the rumors for a possible game-related reveal was also Red Dead Redemption 2. The latter hasn’t got any new updates or content for a long time now. Because of this, a certain section of the people was for a DLC-based announcement for the 2018 blockbuster.

Sadly, that didn’t happen either.

But it was an interesting situation witnessing Rockstar Games making the website go down, even it was for a short period.

For now, GTA 6 is still far from receiving any kind of teaser, let alone a full trailer reveal.
