It was announced on Tuesday evening that Grand Theft Auto 6 would not be released until at least 2025, much to the disappointment of fans who believed the game would come out sooner.
The next game in the Rockstar created series is set to have a 'Fortnite-like' evolving map, which has become a hugely popular format in recent years.
One of the most exciting parts of GTA has always been its characters, and most importantly, its main character. While we know little about who it actually will be at this stage, that hasn't stopped fans from speculation, and more, hoping who it will be.
A popular name to crop out of that: Hasbulla. That's right, the TikTok legend who has had a meteoric rise to fame in recent months has been touted as a main character in the game, in fact fans are demanding it.

Hasbulla has become well-known within and beyond the MMA community and is nicknamed 'Mini Khabib' after a video he made reenacting Khabib Nurmagomedov's iconic UFC weigh-in. The two have since developed a friendship and frequently appear in videos together, recently calling out Henry Cejudo in a little friendly online banter.
Their friendship has led some to ask whether Hasbulla and Khabib are related, but this is not the case.

It is unlikely that Hasbulla would be the main character in the game of course, but as the 18-year-old becomes more and more well-known, who knows if he could one day become a playable character, whether in GTA, Fortnite or Call of Duty: Warzone.
