Fans debate possible Rio setting for GTA 6 after another “map leak”

Dexerto says “Fans have been eager for Rockstar to finally announce some GTA 6 news, but the company has been mum on details. However, there have been a few map leaks over the years that seem to line up with theories and rumors about GTA 6 taking place in both Vice City and South America. On the GTA 6 subreddit, fans began speculating that one of the leaked maps features Rio de Janeiro and used some real maps for comparison.”

“The bottom city is Rio de Janeiro in the leaked maps,” user Boastful_Clown wrote and provided “evidence.”


As you see, there are a handful of islands that line up with the real-life counterparts perfectly. Fans seemed to be okay with the Rio idea, but others remained skeptical.

“I like the idea of the large size of ocean between the islands. A reason to use boats and planes more often to travel from one to another,” someone wrote, believing Rio could be a great location.

“I don’t agree with the consensus that it’s one large map. I think the reason they’re far apart is because there is a loading screen/fast travel mechanic behind it,” another referencing how GTA 5 has Los Santos and North Yankton.

“I don’t see why they would add Rio de Janeiro in a story about drug trade,” one fan said.

Some just flat out denied the possibility, calling it “faker than a pair of Vinewood t*its.”

“Sadly, with the “Expanded and Enhanced” version of GTA 5 coming out on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, it’s unlikely we get any news about the next game until after the next-gen port is released.”

Dexerto says “xQc has always been a lone wolf in many ways. Generally, he likes to stream on his own rather than collaborating with other streamers. And when he does collaborate with them, it leads to drama more often than not. For example, he clashed with streamers like Pokelawls and Myth on the OfflineTV Rust server before quitting. Then, when he moved onto GTA RP, he got banned multiple times following clashes with other streamers like MOONMOON before moving on. Heck, he even rage-quit from a Monopoly game. But interestingly enough, butting heads with other streamers isn’t the reason why he’s now “done” with collaborations. It turns out that something else bothers him much
