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.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
