With no release date in sight for the highly anticipated next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series, fans have been left to their own devices, coming up with concepts for how the game could end up. 

Although we know essentially nothing about GTA 6, except that it’s in development, some fans of the series are already hoping for a return to the West Coast setting seen in San Andreas, specifically the city of Las Venturas.

Based on the real-world Las Vegas, this would provide an opportunity for the city/desert split that was seen in GTA V, as one fan has mocked up.

Las Venturas GTA 6 concept

In GTA V, although there was a large urban portion of the map, the bulk of it was actually more rural. This was a departure from previous entries in the series, which focused mainly on cities exclusively, especially with GTA IV.

With this in mind, this GTA fan has combined the large city environment with a sprawling desert area surrounding Las Venturas.

Not only is this map design inspired by GTA V’s, but possibly also by the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, which will also feature a large desert area, called the outlands. This will sit outside of the main ‘Night City’, just like Las Venturas does here.

As San Andreas players will know, Bone County is the large sandy area in the north of the map, housing the top-secret Area 69 (inspired by Area 51, of course).

Fort Carson also makes a return in this map concept, the largest town in Bone County. For the city proper, it features the iconic Vegas strip, and we can only imagine all the criminal ongoings that would be possible in the City of Sin.

When we finally do get a reveal of where GTA 6 is headed, this fan is clearly hoping that some of his ideas might come to life in a reimagined creation of Las Venturas. But, other leaks have suggested a return to the east coast instead, either Liberty City or Vice City.


GTA Online Casino heist exploit lets you loot vault without timer

GTA Online players have been running into a helpful glitch that is letting them loot the vault during the Diamond Casino heist without worrying about a timer. 

After years of waiting, Grand Theft Auto Online fans were finally given the chance to bust down the Diamond Casino doors in a huge heist back in December 2019, with gold, art, cash, and even diamonds being available to steal.

However, getting in, and sometimes even out of the casino while on the heist has been an issue. Some players have reached the vault and found that there’s nothing inside, or have reached the end of the heist and made absolutely nothing from their cut.

Yet, there are glitches that are helpful too – be it having no police chase you on your escape, or being able to get inside the vault without a timer restricting how much you can loot.

The Diamond Casino heist can be tricky to navigate.

Players have been running into that latter glitch more often recently, with Reddit user DistressedUnit reporting that they’d experienced the helpful issue as recent as October 26.

How it happened for the Redditor, was both themselves and a heist partner tried to activate the drill into the vault at the same time. While their teammate took control of the drill, DistressedUnit was sent through the sidewall of the vault – letting them bypass the drilling stage. 

Once inside, the Redditor noted that they were locked in place or anything like that. Inside, they were able to run around, hack doors, and start looting before the timer became active. Though, once their teammates busted the vault door down, the timer did come into play.

The glitch allows players to loot before the vault door swings open.

Other players have noted that they’ve been able to replicate a similar glitch, allowing them to loot the vault quite a bit without the timer. 

Even though it’s a helpful glitch, it’s still an issue for Rockstar and could well be patched in the near future – especially as there is a new heist on the horizon with the impending winter update.
