GTA fans are absolutely desperate for Rockstar Games to announce a new GTA 6 game. So much so some people have started seeing ridiculous clues in rather innocuous posters on the developer's website.
But until Rockstar Games get on with it and actually announce something, fans will just keep continuing to speculate for themselves.
The one upshot is that some players will create there own light entertainment to fill the void of Rockstar Games deafening silence.
One such example popped up in our Twitter newsfeed earlier this week which had has utterly enthalled.
It was a video doing the rounds for a GTA 6 London concept, created by the YouTuber UK Drill Insider.
I'm not entirely sure what prompted the account to create such a video, but I'm so glad they did, because it feels like the sort of GTA I'd want to play in 2020.
Have a look below, its a good watch (and funny too).
Unfortunately, as we've touched on before, we don't think that Rockstar will necessarily be bringing GTA 6 to London, not least when it seems quite clear that Rockstar have been developing the game for quite some time.
Most rumors also point towards a game with multiple cities and a possible South American excursion too. Likely as part of some sort of drug smuggling ring.
Either way, we're getting off track. The former Rockstar Games co-founder Dan Houser has now left, the chances are at the very least improved.
Houser was very much against the idea of returning to the UK for a new Grand Theft Auto game and given he's been working at Rockstar, likely on GTA 6 for the past few years, it seems unlikely the next installment could return to not just London, but the UK in general.
"I think for us, my gut feeling is, GTA London was cool for the time, but games were more limited then," Houser explained in an interview with The Guardian some years back.
"These days I think we would love to set a game in the UK, set in London, whatever, but I don't know if it would be a GTA game. I think there are plenty of great stories we could tell about the UK, great environments to showcase, great gameplay mechanics that could have a UK bent to them – I just don't think it would be a GTA necessarily."
When will GTA 6 release?

Going into more detail, Houser then went on to explain why they were not looking at returning the franchise to London, saying:
"There are so many games we'd like to make that we just don't have the bandwidth to make at the moment. But we always think, well the future is long and varied, and that's what the future's for.
"Speaking for myself – and normally I'd be as militant about saying 'we' as much as possible, because it certainly isn't only me at all, thank god – but my own personal feeling is that GTA is America."
But Houser is gone now, so at least there's more of a chance of a GTA UK game happening once again. At least we would imagine, anyway.
GTA 5 Update: New Grand Theft Auto DLC leaked but it's not what you think
Ubisoft's Watch Dogs series has been likened to GTA in many ways, and the series next installment – Watch Dogs Legion – is set within a near-future post-Brexit version of London.
So it's going to be extremely interesting to see what it's like and for the time being it's probably about as close as we'll get to a GTA London game for some years to come.
But, it might equally spark some ingenious ideas if Rockstar and Take-Two look to expand the Grand Theft Auto world a little further afield.
There was at one stage talk of a GTA universe of games. That's why Rockstar were also seriously considering a GTA Tokyo title.
And should Take-Two wish to try and deliver on their promise to avoid anymore long stretches without releasing big IP (as they've alluded to before) then perhaps smaller spin-off titles and content could be the way to go.
However they do it though, let's just hope they give us this style of GTA London game, as susggested by UK Drill Insider.
