Forbidden to talk about GTA 6
The notice comes through the Twitter user The Strange Man Expanded and Enhanced, who has shown that the official Rockstar Games account on YouTube has the word GTA 6 on his channel muted. This means that anyone who mentions the forbidden word will believe that they have posted the comment, however, simply log in with a different account to verify that the comment does not appear in the list.
This is a method that is usually very common to use when moderating comments, since you allow trolls to comment using prohibited words, believing that they are appearing in the comments. The problem is that mutating a word like GTA 6 It is something that encompasses many users and types of comments, and far from being a bad sounding word, it is nothing more than a term that will affect many commentators. So why has Rockstar mutated the word? Obvious.
Rockstar Games has muted the word “GTA 6” from their official YouTube channel.

When you don’t want to hear reality
Since GTA V was released in 2013, many users have been asking for the launch of a new installment in recent years. And it is from a saga like Grand Theft Auto many things are expected, and if there is something that is expected with madness, it is a new installment designed to make the most of the new generation of consoles. But for that we will have to keep waiting a lot. So much so that not even Rockstar wants to hear about it.
That is the reason why the company could be mutating all conversations with the magic word, despite the fact that they themselves seem to be leaving clues about the future installment (the latest GTA V video with the detail of the tuition was too much).
What we have to wait
At the moment, the only thing we know is that the improved and extended version of GTA V will arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X in March 2022, a delayed date that seems to be the final one. This new version of GTA V will be released to take advantage of the capabilities of the new consoles, and although some new sections will be included, it will still be the same game from 2013. The surprises may be in the supposed trilogy that should be announced sooner or later , a remastered trilogy that will bring together the three great games of the past and that will serve to remember the streets of Liberty City, Vice City and San Andreas, and that would undoubtedly serve as an aperitif while they finish the development of GTA 6. Don’t you think?
