Should We Believe the Leaks? We Analyze Which Rumors Checked Out

"GTA 6 will be set in Texas" the headline yells, and we wonder if we should believe it or not. We've been going through the leaks and rumors of recent years to see if they're worth believing.

PC ports

Leaks regarding PC versions of console exclusives are among the most trustworthy, as experience shows. Going back no further than last year, it is easy to cite a few such examples, often related to high-profile games.

Later, we could also see an official listing of the game in the French Amazon, which was promptly removed. On March 10, news broke that Horizon: Zero Dawn is also coming to PC.

Death Stranding

In May last year, Italian journalist Antonio Fucito (who had previously revealed the game's release date) revealed that Death Stranding was headed for personal computers. In early August, it was dropped from the PS4 exclusive titles list, raising fans' hopes for a PC version. However, in late October, Hideo Kojima officially confirmed that Death Stranding would indeed make a PC release. The info was solid.
