GTA 6 map leak vs GTA 5 map size comparison
Below we can see a map comparison of the leaked GTA 6 map with theGTA Vmap, made by Reddit userStikyLizardStudiosYT:
We can see that the GTA 6 map appears to beup to 70% larger in sizecompared to the map of its predecessor Grand Theft Auto V!
New cities added to GTA 6 over time?
The initial plan for the GTA 6 map was to be bigger than ever and feature locations across North America and South America, so it waswhose codename is Project Americas.
However, due to changes in Rockstar's approach to work culture, this has been reduced significantly.
Rockstar decided to put the game onvice city, onefictional version of miamiand its surroundings, with more interiors than ever before;
Anyway, thatwas mentionedthat Rockstar plans to continue developing the world of GTA 6 after launch, adding 'new missions and cities regularly'.
Previous GTA 6 map leaks and rumors
Below you will find a collection of previously reported rumors about the GTA 6 map and locations.
A return to Vice City is the likely scenario for GTA VI
Obviously, no one would mind revisiting the iconic Miami-inspired Vice City, with all the additions and novelties that new technologies can bring to give it even more life.
There is even a mixture of information about the status ofMap and scenario of GTA 6🇧🇷 To say more precisely:
On the one hand, rumors of GTA 6 say that we will see a new and modernized version, while on the other hand there weretalks about the game being set in the 70s and 80s.
Gaming expert Tom Henderson predicts that Grand Theft Auto VI will feature amodern vice city, with modern technological elements such as cryptocurrency.
The main reason for this is GTA Online - considering how GTA Online was developed and grown using a modern setting, putting the game in a historical era would remove a lot of what makes GTA Online what it is and would be really detrimental to it.
Other possible locations: South America, GTA city mix
Now, this is where things heat up a little more. While a revamped version of Vice City alone might be enough to drive gamers crazy, apparently Rockstar intends to bring even more to the table. A lot more.
In addition to the rumors about Vice City, we also come across information that talks about a second city in GTA 6 that is located inSouth America- a city based onRio de Janeiro.
Rockstar also stated in an interview that they would like to eventually have a GTA withall previous locations in one game(Liberty City, Los Santos, Vice City, etc.), so this is something we can look forward to in the future.
GTA VI's evolving map: A Fortnite-style possibility?
What we do know for sure is that Rockstar Games has made changes to its development culture and approach to releasing games.
To avoid dire crises, last-minute changes, overworked employees, burnout, and the like, Rockstar decided to shift its focus from a big day-one release, massive map and all, to a post-launch one. oriented method.
This means we could see a minor rollout at the initial release, followed by many expansions that will add more locations and events to the game as time goes on.
That's partly because Rockstar pays attention to the well-being of its employees, but it's also helpful from a strategic perspective.
First, this development culture change has received positive reactions from employees. Some team members who went through critical periods in previous games took this change very well and decided to continue working for Rockstar.
Another reason this could be a positive change is that it will allow Rockstar to plan its content more carefully. Since there's no rush to finish an entire game by a certain date, they can focus on individual expansions and locations long after the initial release and perfect them accordingly.
Henderson compares this map revision to Fortnite, for example, with a giant meteor crashing onto the island and changing its layout during the update. In fact, they did map revisions during seasonal changes.
For some readers, however, the change in development may be a concern. If this seasonal update approach ends up sticking to the Fortnite/Warzone format, it could also mean that Grand Theft Auto 6 will also implement systems like the Battle Pass, and it's a big question how players would react.
Still, at this point, all anyone can do is guess.
Leaked GTA 6 Map – An earlier leak of the GTA 6 map
There is no shortage of alleged leaked GTA 6 maps and possible tips online. Another recent leak about a GTA VI map surfaced in 2021from a leaked 15 second video.
The video shows a somewhat substantial map showing many locations and activities, with the main setting of GTA 6 being Vice City and the state of Florida.
It's one of the most reliable leaks we've got so far. The reason for this statement is that it coincides with information posted on 4Chan some time ago, which mentions the names of some locations, which can also be seen in the video.
Thanks to Reddit user u/ColonelPuffin for making a high quality recreation of what we can see in the leaked video of the GTA 6 map:
After this image was posted, u/StikyLizardStudiosYT went out and overlaid the GTA 5 map over the new one, which was leaked tocompare the map of GTA 6 with GTA 5.
What leads us to further connect these leaks to GTA 6 Vice City, in addition to the clues already mentioned, is that many cities and locations shown on the new GTA 6 map are apparently based on different locations in Florida.
Places likevice-gardensis shown on the east side of the map,Playa Tortonafar to the north, andquincy worldcan be in-game counterparts to themiami gardens, daytona beach, it is clear,disney world(Fred Quincy is the GTA equivalent of Walt Disney.)
The tongue-in-cheek names of the locations shown on the map are exactly the kind of real-world recreation Rockstar is known for (think: Los Santos/Los Angeles, Las Venturas/Las Vegas, Liberty City/New York, etc.). 🇧🇷
As for GTA VI activities, the leak shows that there are possibilities for things likerestaurants, plastic surgeons, gyms, tobacconists, bowling alleys, basketball courts, and so.
The mention of gyms leads us to assume that a muscle/fat factor, like that of GTA San Andreas, may be returning as a feature of the new game.
But of course, this could also be a very well fabricated fan leak, so we have to be careful not to fully believe the story by now.
Some fans have expressed their disbelief over the latest leak, calling it a potential GTA V mod and calling out the shaky camera movement throughout the video. The person who filmed it may have faked a moment of panic to appear more genuine.
GTA VI map concepts: all locations in one game?
While there is no solid evidence that Rockstar takes this approach, havinga map that includes all previous cities from the GTA gamesit would really be a dream.
Fans have already created several custom maps that combine all known GTA locations into one map, simulating a whole world of interconnected cities that we are all familiar with (Liberty City, Los Santos, Vice City, etc.).
Below you can see our fan-favorite GTA 6 map, which includes all cities and locations from the Grand Theft Auto series:
Unofficial/fan-created GTA 6 map
- the saints(bottom left corner)GTA V (e GTA San Andreas)
- vice city(lower right corner)GTA Vice City
- The Adventures(lower center, near the desert) fromgta san andreas
- San Fierro(upper left corner) ofgta san andreas
- freedom city(upper right corner) ofGTA IV (e GTA 3)
Rockstar previously stated in an interview that they would like to include all of the above cities in a GTA game, so this map could be a real possibility at some point.
