With avid Grand Theft Auto fans patiently waiting on any word from Rockstar on GTA 6, they’re coming up with their own ideas for what the next entry in the franchise could include. Most important of all is the map.

Speculation and rumors suggest that Grand Theft Auto 6 will make a return to any number of familiar locations, including Vice City, Liberty City, San Fierro, and more.

While there’s no confirmation at all, nostalgic players would no doubt love a return to these classic cities. So, in anticipation, one fan has created a map with all of them combined together.

Vice City is a classic GTA location, and one fans are desperate for a return to.

The map is essentially a very condensed version of the entire United States. Complete with Liberty City (NYC) and Vice City (Miami) on the east coast, and both Los Santos (LA) and San Fierro (SF) on the west.

Of course, this is completely unrealistic for the game itself, which, even without considering the development time, such a large scale open world would struggle on even the most powerful of gaming rigs.

Still, for the sake of nostalgia, this map concept would be any GTA player’s dream. Created by holidayonion, it features almost every area that’s ever been in past games.

The map features old favorites, plus some new areas to GTA.

You’ll also notice there are a few new locations too, which have never featured in GTA. New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, Denver, and Seattle/Portland are all fresh ideas from the map creator.

It misses out on some other iconic US cities like Chicago and Washington though, and more southern cities like Atlanta.

How this map would actually work in terms of gameplay though, is another question altogether. There is a large expanse of rural land here, which would likely be pretty barren and underused if in a real GTA title, which has always been more focused on big cities.

Whereas Red Dead Redemption 2 features much more open land, the gameplay was more tailored to this experience, with hunting and fishing. So perhaps a greater balance between the city and the countryside could be something to look out for in GTA 6.

A more realistic idea, that still keeps in with the huge map concept, would be picking a single coast. For example, a game featuring both Liberty City and Vice City would be a great throwback, and could create very interesting story opportunities.

Some leaks have suggested this is possible, but we’ll simply have to wait on the announcement from Rockstar, which currently still looks to be some way off.

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 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.
