Suspicious GTA 6 $225 Pre-order Listing Shows Up Online, and Why You Must Stay Away
There’s no doubt that the gaming community has been over the moon ever since the release of GTA 6’s trailer. Players are eagerly waiting for the opportunity to order arguably, one of the most highly anticipated games of all time.
Unfortunately, we still don’t have any details from Rockstar Games regarding pre-orders. However, that doesn’t stop scammers from taking advantage of those gamers who want to get their hands on Grand Theft Auto 6. The latest scam to appear online is a website offering access to GTA 6 for a whopping $225 USD.
$225 GTA Pre-Order Listing Appears Online
Grand Theft Auto 6 is one of the hottest topics in the gaming world at the moment, and is officially on the way in 2025. We still don’t have any official release date, or will there be pre-orders available for the game. It’s going to be quite some while before Rockstar gives another glimpse at the game. Even with lacking information, scammers have already spotted a window of opportunity to scam the gaming community.
As reported by AutoEvolution, a website that goes by the name ‘G2A’ has listed GTA 6 for pre-order, reportedly for $225 USD. Multiple video ads have been spotted by the community running on YouTube, telling viewers that they can “download and test the gameplay”. That’s not all, the video also features the official Rockstar logo next to “Play now”.
Needless to say, this is 100% fake, as Rockstar Games is yet to announce anything about the game being available for pre-order. Heck, we know for a fact that GTA 6 will not be released on PC at launch. All that is known at this moment is that GTA 6 will be only releasing on PS5, and Xbox Series X/S consoles in 2025.
Before the reveal of the first trailer, rumors had started circulating on social media that Rockstar Games could charge upwards of $100 for the standard edition of GTA 6. It’s important for readers to only trust information that comes from Take-Two Interactive or Rockstar Games.
We can only expect these kinds of scams to continue popping up. Grand Theft Auto 6 is undeniably one of the most hyped and anticipated games of all time, and scammers will take every advantage they can before the game’s launch.
