GTA 6 will feature multiple cities, including Vice City
The first details of GTA 6's setting have been revealed and the long-awaited sequel will see us return to Vice City, or at least a fictional version of Miami.
The game is planned to be the biggest Grand Theft Auto title ever, and was originally designed to encompass large regions modeled after North and South America. Those plans were later cut back, however. As GTA 6 currently stands, its main map will contain Vice City and the metropolis' surrounding area.
It sounds like GTA 6's map won't remain static, either. Rockstar plans to continually update the game after release through patches that are substantially larger in scope than those GTA 5 has received.
According to Bloomberg (opens in new tab), Rockstar plans to add new missions and cities to the game “on a regular basis”. Not only will these hand players new areas to explore after they've completed the vanilla version of the game, but it's hoped the release schedule will cut down crunch time during the final months of development.
GTA 6's map will still be large at launch, though. Not only will it cover a wide area, but it will also feature more interior locations than past titles. Combined with the series' first female protagonist, it sounds like Rockstar is making a few major changes to the staple GTA formula.
Despite these details, we've still no concrete launch date. The latest leaks suggest GTA 6 is at least two years away from release. Thankfully, there are loads of games like GTA you can play while waiting for Rockstar's crime 'em up.
