The anticipation for the release of the much-awaited Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 6 is increasing with each passing day, and the latest leak about the game’s map has only added to the excitement. According to reports, the franchise is returning to Vice City, and if the leak is to be believed, the game’s map of Vice City could be the biggest open world of all time.
Last year, the gaming industry was shaken to its core when a massive GTA 6 leak confirmed several things about the game, including its location, as well as the fact that it will have a female protagonist. Additionally, the leak confirmed that the game would feature next-gen graphics and gave fans a glimpse of how big the open-world title would be based on Rage Engine Units in the leaked footage.
Now, the GTA VI Vice City Mapping Project has shared a detailed look at how massive the world will be, and it makes GTA 5’s Los Santos look smaller. In a Reddit post, user ‘tussataster’ uploaded an image of GTA 6’s alleged map side-by-side with Los Santos to showcase their true size difference. The image highlights that there’s a lot more land in GTA 6, and it will take players a lot of time to check out every nook and corner of the map.
However, the map shows even more than what the files indicated, and it could stretch even further north than what fans might know of currently. “There are countless Cities/Towns such as York Town, Red Hill, etc found in the files. Most of these locations point towards the north of Port Gelhorn, making the map expand even further north,” the user pointed out.
While there have been rumors that the upcoming game will release portions of the game as DLC in order to meet the launch timeline, it is still unknown whether parts of the GTA 6 map will be released after the game has been launched. However, fans won’t have to wait too long to find out how the leaked map coordinates align with the finished product, as Rockstar is expected to officially unveil the game later this year.
According to a reliable Rockstar insider and leaker, the announcement trailer for GTA 6 is just around the corner and could come sooner than expected. Rockstar Games has been mum about GTA 6 since first revealing the game was in development and then promising it would take entertainment benchmarks to new heights when it finally hits the gaming scene.
Despite the massive leak that rocked the gaming industry, Rockstar’s parent firm Take-Two Interactive promised that it wouldn’t affect the game’s development. The new entry in the franchise is said to be set in Vice City, and according to Tez2, the announcement could happen on GTA Online’s 10th anniversary.
