50 Cent's Apparent GTA 6 Tease Was Not For The Game, But Instead An Unrelated Vice City TV Series

50 Cent was not teasing GTA 6--he was hyping up a new unrelated TV series with the working title Vice City.


Recently, the rapper and actor Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson posted a cryptic teaser for "Vice City," setting off speculation that he might be involved with the next Grand Theft Auto game. It's now been confirmed that he was actually teasing a new unrelated TV series, and its plot sounds like a GTA game.

Paramount+ is developing new original series with the working title Vice City, and it hails from Jackson's G-Unit Film & TV division, according to Deadline. The story follows three friends, former soldiers, who come home to Miami in the mid-'80s after a dishonorable discharge following the Iran Contra scandal.

"Disgraced, displaced, and forgotten by the country they served and with no good job prospects, the three friends partner with a mysterious Colombian immigrant, uniting their financial needs and criminal ambitions to form a heist crew," reads a line from the show's description. "Fueled by the need for American green, they traverse a violent and dangerous path in pursuit of the American Dream."

Vice City was created by writers and executive producers Darnell Metayer and Josh Peters, who wrote the upcoming Transformers: Rise of the Beasts film. John Wick franchise veteran Chad Stahelski is an executive producer and director for the Vice City series.

As for the GTA series, GTA 6--or whatever it ends up being called--is in development now at Rockstar Games. According to a massive leak, it's set in Vice City (a fictional version of Miami) and will tell a Bonnie and Clyde-style story involving criminal siblings.
