It doesn’t take much for a subject to go viral and tons of fans are talking about a new GTA game right now. Bully 2 is also on a lot of fans’ wish lists, but GTA 6 seems to be more of a realistic wish at this point.

A Reddit thread shared a new screenshot from Grand Theft Auto which showed Dwayne Johnson in the game. It wasn’t a screenshot from gameplay, but one of their trademark loading screens. That image of The Rock in GTA world was still enough to get fans excited.

Reddit user kry_some_more shared an image of actor and celebrity Dwayne Johnson posing as a Grand Theft Auto character. The Rock’s films have grossed more than $10 billion globally so this would be an epic crossover. The artwork also shows The Rock striking a pose next to a Ferrari. If fans’ decade-long wait for a new GTA game is finally coming to an end, then this would be an epic way to kickoff GTA 6.

Many celebrities have been immortalized in video games before from Bruce Willis to Arnold Schwarzenegger, mostly action stars have received this honor. If The Rock can pull off this jump to the video game world then it could be a big success. It also doesn’t hurt that most things he touches turns to gold.

This is getting fans to talk in a big way. Rockstar Games might be best served to get on the phone and call up Seven Bucks Productions to see if The Rock would be willing to collaborate.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
