GTA 6 confirms in leak that it would have its own version of WhatsApp

Rockstar Games was the victim of one of the biggest leaks in the history of video games after someone released more than 90 videos where it was possible to see the trailers for the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto VI, also known simply as GTA 6.

On top of everything, it seems that details of the debugging tools have also been released, some scenarios in the initial stages and a lot of information about the game that would hardly be found in a very early but already functional alpha stage.

With such a volume of information circulating for days, the most natural thing is that little by little the gamer community discovers some not-so-obvious details or winks in each of those videos.

Where, perhaps, the biggest surprise has been discovering that the game would have its own instant messaging application.

How is the GTA 6 WhatsApp

We have already detailed them before. There are multiple sites on the net that have been offered to host the videos of the first original leak. Although Rockstar Games has actively worked on the elimination and withdrawal of material republished on networks to protect the details of your project.

However, in what has already been analyzed it was found an interesting detail. One of the videos shows a character in a strip club, and it is in that same video that we see the characters messaging each other using an in-game platform called “WhatUp!”.

True to their tradition, the Rockstar guys have set up a parody app that is part of the game’s universe. Just like it happened in GTA V, where they created a parody of Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg.

In fact, the founder of this social network, spoiler alert, was dispatched in a brutal and hyper violent manner in a televised event as part of one of the main missions of the game.

For this case, the GTA 6 WhatsApp appears as a notification on the right side of the player’s screen. Where it would appear that alerts would appear at random times that would inform players when they have received a message.

We also see instances of new connections between characters in what appears to be a group chat. Although, to be honest, it is not clear to what extent this messaging system can be used in the game.

It will be interesting to see how this detail finally ends up being integrated into Grand Theft Auto VI, but it will have to wait a few years.
