GTA 6: USA? London? Where Will The New Map In Grand Theft Auto 6 Be?

The setting is everything when it comes to GTA 6 - could we be heading to London or back to a familiar setting in the USA?

If there's one question that comes shortly after "When is the GTA 6 release date?" it's "where will the new map be?"

GTA 5 was a dream come true, a massive open-world map with tons of activities to lose yourself in; Los Santos has a ton of character and is one of the best open-world experiences. 

With GTA 6 set to release within the next two years, we are wondering where they might take us this time.

Los Santos was a replica of Los Angeles, so where could we be heading this time? Let's look at some possible suggestions.

Where Will The New Map In GTA 6 Be?

There are rumours that it could be set in London or returning to a familiar location in the USA.

The last time a GTA title was based outside of the United States was all the way back in 1999, when it was actually set in London!

Since we, of course, have visited locations such as Vice City, Liberty City and Los Santos which are all based upon the three biggest cities in the States; Miami, New York, and Los Angeles. 

So, is it time for Rockstar Games to go back overseas? London has been the home of numerous open-world games, Assassin's Creed Syndicate and Watch Dogs Legion is also set to captivate the London scenery this coming Fall.

 

It appears to be a hot location to base a game in as of late, and with how well Rockstar can captivate a city this would be amazing to see!

Although on the surface it seems to be a good idea, Dan Houser, the head writer at Rockstar Games said this to The Guardian

"GTA London was cool for the time,” he said, referring to the original Grand Theft Auto game. He continued, “But games were more limited then. These days I think we would love to set a game in the UK, set in London, whatever, but I don't know if it would be a GTA game.”

Unfortunately, it does not look like we will be seeing a GTA game in London anytime soon; but you never know there may be a chance!

The USA? Vice City, Liberty City Again? 

One of the more notable GTA 6 rumours appeared on Reddit which has since been deleted, by a suspicious user.

Due to the deletion of the Reddit user's account, the post was also lost; but thankfully we saved all the points. Noting that the next GTA game has been in development since 2015 and is being called "Project Americas".

The post also details that the story will take place over Vice City and a new fictional world, resembling Rio De Janeiro.

 

Moving onto one of the least talked about rumours for GTA 6.

Although it has been rumoured for quite some time that Rockstar Games has an interest in using the whole state of Florida for a game; it never really picked up any ground.

Until recently, notable Rockstar Games leaker @Yan2295. shared a letter a store in Florida received.

Detailed in the letter, was Rockstar Games asking permission to survey the store and the surrounding areas

Of course, Miami is a city in the state of Flordia so maybe we are going to see the game expand the entirety of the state?
