The passionate Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 6 mapping community has been dedicating countless hours to craft the highly anticipated game’s map ahead of Rockstar Games’ official revelation. Recently, an active contributor known as GameRoll (@GameRollGTA) shared a captivating image, showcasing a segment of the new Vice City map in comparison to sections of Liberty City and Los Santos. Notably, GameRoll asserted that Vice City would surpass the scale of HD Universe maps.
This intriguing project is rumored to have commenced after the September 2022 leaks, and the community has made remarkable strides thus far. Nevertheless, caution is advised, as the details remain speculative until Rockstar Games formally unveils the Grand Theft Auto 6 map.
On January 8, 2024, GameRoll unveiled an image illustrating the vastness of the new Vice City map. The depiction featured three distinct land portions, with the extended stretch on the right identified as South Beach, a presumed component of the upcoming game map.
In the image, the compact landmass on the left represented the island of Algonquin from Grand Theft Auto 4, while the background showcased a distorted map of Los Santos County from Grand Theft Auto 5.
Community members are strongly inclined to believe that South Beach will constitute only a fraction of the expansive State of Leonida. An additional image shared by Detective (@that1detectiv3), a prominent data miner, unveiled a more comprehensive map of Leonida in Grand Theft Auto 6, encompassing additional landmasses to the north, east, and southwest.
Given that the length of South Beach is comparable to Los Santos County, enthusiasts anticipate that the full map will overshadow the dimensions of current games’ maps.
The September 2022 GTA 6 leaks provided an unofficial sneak peek into the new Vice City map, prompting data miners to uncover and map various areas such as Port Gellhorn, Yorktown, Lake Leonida, Redhill, and more. The subsequent official trailer confirmed most of these locations, shedding light on the intricacies of the State of Leonida.
As fans eagerly await more details in the GTA 6 trailer, the mapping community remains uncertain about Rockstar Games’ plans for the north side of the map.
