Sensational news has emerged from the world of Grand Theft Auto 6. Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar Games, has patented a revolutionary technology that is speculated to be used in GTA 6. This new character animation system promises to deliver an unparalleled level of realism never seen before.

Despite a plethora of behind-the-scenes reports, the release date for GTA 6 remains elusive. The gaming community is breathlessly awaiting an official announcement from Rockstar Games, yet the developers continue to hold their cards close to their chest regarding details of the new series installment. As such, the only sources of information currently available are based on rumors and unofficial reports, which naturally demand a degree of skepticism.

One such unofficial source is a Reddit user who goes by the handle Tobbelobben30. This user has taken matters into their own hands by conducting an independent investigation. In their pursuit of information on GTA 6, they discovered that the name Tobias Kleanthous appears in the leaked documents. And this is where things get intriguing.

What unraveled is that Tobias Kleanthous is an accomplished developer specializing in artificial intelligence, gameplay, and animations. He was part of the Rockstar Games team from 2014 until the end of 2021. Kleanthous is credited with a patent titled "System and Method for Virtual Character Locomotion", which has been developed and implemented within Rockstar Games.

Tobbelobben30 found this patent and, based on the information it contains, speculates that if this system is indeed utilized in GTA 6, it will result in character animations the likes of which have never been seen before.

This discovery, in conjunction with recent reports about the purported graphics in GTA 6, has only served to heighten anticipation for the title. Gamers are becoming increasingly restless, a sentiment that is hardly surprising given that the wait for a new GTA has already stretched to a decade.
