A new Rockstar project releasing in Summer 2020 has been teased on Instagram by American hip hop group City Morgue.
They're teasing a collaboration with the Red Dead Redemption 2 (opens in new tab) developers on a new soundtrack for either GTA Online (opens in new tab) or a yet-to-be-announced game that's apparently launching next year.

As it happens, a number of recent clues (including a new job listing (opens in new tab)) have indeed suggested that Rockstar is working on GTA 6 (opens in new tab), so it's certainly possible that this is the project that City Morgue is referring to. Rumours of Bully 2 (opens in new tab), a sequel to the studio's 2006 cult classic school simulator, have also been doing the rounds, and a hip hop soundtrack certainly wouldn't look out of place for that kind of setting.
Several bands have worked with Rockstar over the years to produce new music for GTA Online's in-game radio, however, and the developer's ongoing support for its multiplayer counterpart to GTA 5 (opens in new tab) shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, making a new City Morgue addition all the more plausible.
With both the PS5 (opens in new tab)and Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) set to launch in Holiday 2020, a Summer release for a new Rockstar game on current-gen hardware next year also wouldn't make much sense, though - in a separate DM on Twitter (opens in new tab) - one of City Morgue's band members teased that more details about the collaboration would be coming "soon".
"Soon", as it happens, is also the timeframe that GTA 5's Trevor, Steven Ogg himself, gave (opens in new tab) when asked about the GTA 6 release date earlier this year. With that in mind, we'll keep you posted if and when we hear anything more....
