Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 6, aka GTA VI, has managed to mesmerize and capture the attention of numerous gamers worldwide. After the last mainline title came out a decade ago, a leak of GTA VI last year sparked conversations around it. With no official news around it, apart from the confirmation of the game’s existence, the player base has started making concept maps with existing data. One such map has sparked quite a lot of discussion around it. Here are the details.
GTA 6 Map Details Appear
A popular leaker, called GTAVI_Trailer Countdown on Twitter, recently stated that the upcoming Vice City map of the game should be 2X the size of GTA V. The concept map gives us a brief idea of how large the upcoming GTA 6 map can be, looking gigantic in comparison to 5’s map. One funny thing to note is that most of the leakers have used this render of the map in numerous instances.
Grand Theft Auto 5 has one of the largest modern-day maps by Rockstar Games in their titles. However, the problem with that map is that Blaine County and Paleto Forest plots are wasted and underutilized. Players only visit the other parts of the map to do side-quests or random explorations. It seems a vocal part of the community also agrees with this fact and hopes that there is more to do around the map of GTA 6.
At the same time, it is worth noting that this game is coming out after the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, which has one of the liveliest maps in Rockstar Games’ history. That game also houses one of the largest maps made by the team. Hence, we can expect the map of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto to be large in scale.
Another thing to point out (taking Red Dead Redemption 2 as an example) is that each region of the maps has activities and side quests for players to perform. Judging by the love and detail the devs have put into RDR2, we can expect the same from the upcoming GTA 6.
For now, most people speculate that the game will feature multiple smaller maps and one large map of Vice City. We expect the launch to happen on May 17. But, since there’s no confirmation, we will have to wait. Stay tuned for updates and meanwhile, read through our GTA 6 compilation article, which we constantly keep updating for in-depth details about the upcoming game.
