Some Grand Theft Auto Online fans believe they’ve uncovered the “entirely new location” that has been teased for the upcoming new heist. 

While there are certainly plenty of activities to do and earn money from in GTA Online, the best and most exciting comes in the form of heists. Currently, players are able to steal from banks and even the Diamond Casino, but Rockstar have confirmed that there is more to come.

On July 24, the Grand Theft Auto developers confirmed that a summer update – despite being late compared to previous years – is still in the works but a brand new heist is likely to feature later in the year.  

Rockstar noted that this will be in an “entirely new location,” but some players think that the devs might have already planted a few clues under everyone’s noses.

Some players believe this announcement photo from Rockstar may hold clues about the next heist.

The speculation comes from Reddit user that-guy-Ri, who pointed out that the photo of a new car used in the developer’s announcement about the update appears to tease the next heist spot. 

However, instead of being whisked away to Vice City, Las Venturas, Liberty City, or even North Yankton, it appears as if the heist might actually be going down in the middle of Los Santos.

The Redditor noted that the car, which is sitting at the top of a hill in West Vinewood, is looking towards the area where the FIB building, that is actually used in some of the single-player story heists, sits. Though, it is the other buildings around it that are seemingly of interest – ones that have been being built ever since GTA Online started.

Of course, this is purely speculation on behalf of the Redditor, but other players have come around to the line of thinking – believing that Rockstar are just going to drop new buildings to explore, heist, and even own. 

It very much remains to be seen if Rockstar decides to whisk players away to a new area – say, an island with a heist on – or if it’ll just be new buildings that have never been explorable. 

We’ll just have to wait and see.

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.
