‘GTA 6’ Release Date, Features: Is Game Map Going Back to London or Vice City?
Rockstar Games is still mum about any details related to “GTA 6.” However, rumors suggest that the sequel game’s map is most likely taking players back to either Vice City or London.
The gameplay maps are some of the most exciting aspect of the “GTA” series over the years. Rockstar Games commonly use real-life cities as inspirations while also successfully putting their own touch to every design. And if they decide to bring back either Vice City or London in “GTA 6,” it is interesting what sorts of improvements will be added.
Vice City is Rockstar Games’ version of Miami in the video game series and it was first introduced in 2002. This map has been the basis of other video game installments over the series — proof that it was a hit among fans. Revisiting it through the main gameplay map in “GTA 6” will not be totally surprising.
Another possible location to be revisited in “GTA 6” is London. Aside from Vice City, other popular maps in the “GTA” series include San Andreas and Liberty City — Rockstar Games’ fictional versions of California and New York City. Obviously, developers rarely use cities outside the U.S. as inspirations and do not label maps based on its real names. For some reason, these rules were not followed for London when it was used in earlier “GTA” DLCs as gameplay maps.
However, speaking of possible “GTA 6” maps, there had also been a prevailing rumor that the next main title could feature a new gameplay allowing players to travel in and out of a country. There were reports claiming that “GTA 6” is codenamed “Project Americas” because it will feature maps based on locations in North America and South America.
Unfortunately, Rockstar Games has not given any official clues yet about “GTA 6.” So fans should take these bits of information as mere rumors. It also does not seem like the highly anticipated sequel will be released anytime soon based on Dan Houser’s recent statements.
