GTA VI Easter Eggs

The GTA series is known for its commentary on modern culture and society, and GTA VI appears to be no different. References in the trailer include a tattoo-faced convict that looks eerily similar to the Florida ‘Joker’ as well as a reference to the ‘Florida Man’ meme. These references are detailed in the screenshots below.

Previously, it was reported that Rockstar Games is developing a new technology for water physics, which will be integrated into GTA VI. The team responsible for this endeavor is known as the “RAGE Technology Group,” a division of the Rockstar San Diego studio that created the company’s proprietary engine back in 2006. This team comprises approximately twenty engineers, with expertise in programming, real-time physics simulation, memory padding considerations, linear algebra, trigonometry, matrix, and quaternion mathematics. After months of research, experimentation, and optimization, the engineers at the California based studio have successfully implemented real-time simulation of water in an open-world game.
