Rockstar no longer wants to hear about GTA 6 on Twitch
While the whole gaming world is waiting for news about Grand Theft Auto 6, Rockstar Games seems to have had enough of its own series of games. On the publisher’s official twitch channel Apparently it is no longer possible to write the words “GTA 6” or “GTA VI” in the chat.
A user in the GTA forum shows here that messages containing one of the words are not sent. Instead, an error message appears there, according to the message in conflict with the moderation settings of the canal. However, messages about Grand Theft Auto 5 can be sent without any problems (Reddit).
Here you can see what shouldn’t go wrong in GTA 6:
Why is GTA 6 banned on Twitch?
There is no official justification from Rockstar for banning the word “GTA 6”. It’s probably one though Protection against spam messages. Due to the general curiosity about the next part of the series, it is still quite possible that news on this topic would otherwise dominate every Rockstar stream and the actual topic of the stream is lost. The developer has already taken the same action on YouTube. Of course, that’s understandable on the one hand, but it also prevents fans from being able to talk about a game they’re looking forward to.
Rockstar has been particularly silent when it comes to GTA 6 news. So far we only know that the successor to GTA 5 is being worked on. Of course, insiders and leakers still claim that they already know a lot more about the game. For example, the secret of the protagonist could already have been revealed.
