Grand Theft Auto Online fans have come up with an interesting map concept for GTA 6 that would really stretch the limits of the multiplayer mode.

Even though there are no signs of Rockstar Games announcing GTA 6 anytime soon, fans of the Grand Theft Auto series have been coming up ideas of what they want to see next. Be it storylines, characters, or locations, fans have dreamt up pretty much everything. 

One pretty popular idea seems to be that of making the Grand Theft Auto 6 map a bit of a ‘best of GTA’ by combining a whole host of previous locations into one. Plenty of fans have put the idea forward in recent months.

Yet, one fan has taken things slightly further, not just by taking certain locations, but by combining every GTA map in history.

There have been a huge amount of map concepts for GTA 6.

The huge concept was posted by Reddit user megahurst, with each GTA location taking up a part of the map in relation to where they would actually be on a map of the United States. For example, Vice City is in the southeast corner – looking just like Florida.

The ridiculous size of the map had the Redditor joking about how ridiculous certain missions would be if, say, Rockstar followed through on the concept and it was also used in the multiplayer portion of GTA 6.

Plenty of players got behind megahurst’s idea, noting that it could make planes actually useful given the vast space between the locations.

However, in terms of it actually happening, it might be a little out there. Having so many populated cities in one map would take some almighty power to run but given that new console and PC upgrades will be released before GTA 6, Rockstar could easily unleash their biggest experience yet. 

It just probably won’t be this big.

Rockstar Games have released a new GTA Online weekly update on January 21. It adds a new Slamtruck to the mix, changing up the Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel rewards, and slashing the prices of some big ticket items. So, let’s run through the patch notes. 

As regular players of GTA 5 will be all too aware, there’s one big update every week in-game. This usually includes a number of login bonuses, boosted rewards for specific missions, featured races, and a few goodies thrown in there as well.
