50 Cent deletes GTA-related posts from Instagram account

It looks like Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive weren't aware that 50 Cent broke the NDA and subsequently asked him to drop it.

50 Cent doesn't back down from anybody. At least, unless you're Take-Two Interactive.

GTA: Vice City is set in the 80s.

Armed with an army of lawyers, Take-Two isn't afraid to protect its properties. In this particular case, 50 Cent just might have had a cease and desist letter sent from the massive $20 billion holdings company.

After sending Grand Theft Auto fans into a tizzy by teasing his involvement in GTA 6, 50 Cent has scrubbed all proof of it online. The posts he'd made about Vice City are no longer on his Instagram account, suggesting Rockstar and Take-Two wasn't a big fan when he riled fans up. By taking it down, we know that 50 Cent could have broken an NDA.

If it's any consolation, this arguably proves two things: 50 Cent is part of a GTA project, and the next GTA game is set in Vice City.

Last year's leaks confirmed the years-long speculation about the setting of Grand Theft Auto 6. Also, based on the leaks, GTA 6 is set many years after the events of GTA: Vice City. This also means we shouldn't expect to see Tommy Vercetti, one of the best GTA protagonists of all time, in GTA 6.

The Vercetti Gang leader was 35 years old at the start of the 2002 game. He'll have to be in his 70s if GTA 6 is set in modern times.

A much-larger Vice City on modern consoles is a dream come true for a lot of GTA fans.

As the sequel to the second best-selling game of all time, which is a massive feat considering it belongs to one of the most controversial franchises ever, all eyes are undoubtedly on GTA 6. By taking his posts down, 50 Cent is telling us that he can't talk more about what we assume is an ongoing collaboration with Rockstar until it's ready.

Thus, now starts the wait for whether 50 Cent is in GTA 6, or if it's all been for a Vice City-inspired music video, theme song, or a live-action TV show, or even a movie.

Grand Theft Auto 6 is reportedly due for an official reveal later this year. Take-Two Interactive's most recent earnings report suggests that GTA 6 won't be out until after 2025.
