An alleged leaked image of GTA 6 has surfaced and started doing the rounds on social media, but is it as real as some fans might claim? Let’s check it out. 

For quite some time now, Grand Theft Auto fans have been hoping for an announcement about GTA VI from Rockstar Games. However, the developers have remained ultra-silent on the game, leaving fans to dig for information elsewhere.

As a result, there has been some good information – like having the first character apparently revealed by an actor’s resume. Yet, there’s also been plenty of bad details and claims too – especially when it was claimed that the game would be revealed at the end of March 2020. Yet, an apparent new leak has reared its head and fans are pretty split in their belief of it.

GTA 6 appears to be in development but there hasn’t been confirmation from Rockstar.

The image that has been doing the rounds shows, what is supposed to be, a Miami-like skyline with plenty of palm trees in the foreground and a pink tint to the sky – showing as if the sun is just rising or it is the early morning. There is even a Rockstar logo in the bottom right-hand corner to really sell it.

Though, as the photo was posted to the GTA6 subreddit, many fans immediately claimed that what they were seeing was fake and not related to GTA VI in any way shape or form. 

The original poster of the thread, swiftmachine79, even noted that there had been claims that the image stemmed from a mod of some kind for GTA V – which could be the basis for another elaborate prank about GTA 6

Despite the critiques and skepticism, the image does very much resemble Miami, so it could easily tie into the claims that GTA VI will take fans back to Vice City.

However, until Rockstar finally announces that the game is in development and gives fans clues about where they are headed in GTA 6, everything is up in the air. We’ll just have to wait and see what they do.

The newly surfaced GTA 6 Vice City map leak may have been teased as far back as Grand Theft Auto V, judging by some postcards found in-game.

A bunch of previously dismissed Grand Theft Auto 6 leaks from 2018 have been gaining attention again after a new leak sparked similarities to those images.

With these leaks gaining traction once more, users have been searching for anything that may connect directly to them. As it turns out, some postcards found at a strip club in GTA V could provide some clues.

Redditor ‘MrBurpAlot’ took to the GTA6 section to post their findings, and detailed how the postcards from “Paradise Isle” could be related to the leaked map.

“So, in the changing rooms in the back of the strip club, there are these postcards referring ‘Paradise Isle,’” they wrote. “Initially, I thought the name ‘Paradise Isle’ could be a reference to somewhere like Hawaii or The Bahamas, but after the alleged map leak, it also seems the pictures fit pretty well regarding distance and such.”

“You can also take a look at the 3 islands I pointed out in the top postcard… I personally think the top right island could be a GTA version of Bahamas,” they further added.

As you can see in the leaked map, there are three islands a good distance away from each other that look very similar to how they’re positioned in the postcards. Rockstar is known to tease future games within other titles, so it’s possible that this could be connected to GTA 6.

Could this leak be related to GTA 6?

However, the leaks as a whole have been quite controversial, with one game developer even chiming in that they look fake.

Sadly, there will be no way to know for sure until Rockstar either announces GTA 6 or gives us a much-awaited update on the next game. That said, with GTA V coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, we may be waiting a bit longer for some news.

Hopefully, the next-gen ports of GTA V and GTA Online can offer even more clues on the future title’s location and even release.
