‘Leaked GTA 6 map’ shows off huge Caribbean setting – with surprise locations

The upcoming GTA 6 will return the series to Vice City and feature a number of Caribbean islands.

According to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier, GTA 6 will be set in a fictional version of Miami, namely Vice City—the setting of earlier games in the series.

Apparently, Rockstar Games' plans for the game were originally much more ambitious. It was meant to feature four main characters and set across three cities and 'large swaths of North and South America'. However, Rockstar apparently scaled back the plans after some internal changes were made to change the firm's company culture.

Now, the game is due to be set in Miami and some surrounding areas. An image shared by a notable GTA rumours page is purported to show this map, which includes a huge coastal city as well as a nearby Caribbean island.

The Twitter account said: "[Rockstar's] plan is now to continually update the game over time, adding new missions & cities on a regular basis. Still, the game's world remains large, with more interior locations than previous GTA games, impacting the timeline."

They added that Rockstar will add new cities to the map through DLC (downloadable content) packs after the game's initial launch.

While the image would certainly align with leaks about the game so far, it has not been confirmed as legitimate by Rockstar and its origins are unclear.

The supposed map leak follows the news that GTA 6 will feature a woman as one of the main playable protagonists for the first time in series history.

A Rockstar insider revealed to Bloomberg that the long-awaited sequel to GTA V will include a Latina woman as one of two main characters, in a story inspired by 'Bonnie and Clyde'.

There's also speculation that the game could be released as early as March 2023, with past form suggesting that Rockstar tends to release games around 18 months to two years after formally announcing development. The next GTA game was announced in February of this year.
