GRAND Theft Auto 6 leaked footage features a scathing parody of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg on the dangers of social media.
Facebook’s GTA counterpart is called LifeInvader and is run by its red-haired founder, Jay Norris.
Norris is a thinly veiled disguise for Mark Zuckerberg, and GTA is by no means making it easy for him.
LifeInvader’s name is a nod to the numerous privacy concerns raised against Facebook, including how the company collects and sells your information.
Corresponding slashyou can hear an NPC say: “Yeah, so Jay Norris can download your f***ing brain and sell it to the Chinese.”
Norris first appeared in GTA 5 to promote LifeInvader, and it seems Rockstar plans to expand on the parody in the upcoming game.
However, in the GTA 5 Friend Request mission, we saw Zucker – I mean Norris – meet his bloody end, so we didn’t expect him to show up in the sequel.
Unless, of course, GTA 6 is a prequel.
Although it seems impossible, Norris was implemented in an early build of the game.
This does not mean that he will appear in the final version of the game, but the probability seems high.
His storyline in GTA 6 surrounds rumors that Norris is making a brain implant for LifeInvader that will lock the app right into your mind.
While the leaked footage only showed NPCs discussing the possibility of the intrusive technology, the conversation comes up frequently.
The frequency of discussion suggests that it could be the focus of either a main story mission or a subplot.
Brain Link technology has been theorized in the real world.
It became famous when the richest man in the world, Elon Musk, backed a project based on the technology called Neuralink.
There are also rumors that a Musk parody will appear in GTA 6, possibly as part of the same quest.
Though Rockstar claims it will take a step back from bigoted jokes and language, the studio doesn’t seem afraid of hitting it.
From what we can tell so far, the humor focuses more on analyzing social issues rather than lashing out at individual groups.
