GTA 6 Codename May Have Accidentally Been Revealed
The codename for Rockstar Games’ next game in the GTA series, GTA 6, may have accidentally been revealed via a voice actor’s resume. The game is set to be publisher’s next major release and focus in the years to come.
Voice actor Tamara’s acting position for a game titled “Fireball Videogame” was spotted listed in the actor’s resume, with “Rockstar Games” credited as the publisher. However, the listing was promptly removed as a result. It is speculated that “Fireball” is, in fact, the codename for GTA 6.

According to a recent update from Rockstar Games’ official website, the studio will continue to support GTA 5’s online mode, GTA Online, with major updates for the foreseeable future. However, RDR Online fans aren’t as lucky, as, in an effort to speed up development on Grand Theft Auto 6, the studio will not be able to continue providing major content updates for it.
Given that Rockstar Games’ has acknowledged that a new GTA game is currently the focus of development at the studio, “Fireball” is highly likely to be the codename for the title. Since Tamara is either performing or has performed voice over duties for her role, it’s likely that GTA 6 may be further ahead in development than previously assumed.
The previous entry in the series, GTA V, is currently at the peak of its popularity, with more players than ever taking to the streets of Los Santos thanks to the recent launches on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Rockstar will be working to improve the overall GTA Online experience with new gameplay updates, adding top community-requested experience improvements and upgrades to make it easier for players to enjoy everything GTA Online has to offer.
The criminal careers of Executive, Biker, Gunrunner, and Nightclub Owner will be expanded in the next update for GTA Online on all platforms, along with a series of contact missions that provide the chance to be sworn in as a special IAA field operative to look into a developing criminal conspiracy.
This update will also include other long-overdue community requests, such the option to initiate Sell Missions during Invite Only sessions, a more simple way to get food and armor, and a reduction in the efficacy of homing missiles and countermeasures on the Oppressor Mk II. These are just a few of the user-experience upgrades that GTA Online will receive this summer as we continue to incorporate player input and other lessons learned.
