Will GTA 6 be in Vice City? Possible map locations based on rumors of weather & live events

Dexerto says “Even though Rockstar Games still haven’t confirmed that GTA 6 is in the works and coming at some point, longstanding rumors and leaks have got everything pointing towards Vice City.

The Miami-inspired backdrop hasn’t been used in a GTA game since the 2002 and 2006 releases that bear its name, and fans have been begging for a return.

Since Vice City first appeared, we’ve traveled to Los Santos twice in San Andreas and GTA 5, while also having a stop in Liberty City for GTA IV. While a return to Vice City appears to be on the cards, some fans aren’t entirely sold.”

Will GTA 6 be in Vice City?

Why you might ask? Well, there have been new rumors from gaming insider Tom ‘LongSensation’ Henderson that have claimed that GTA 6 will have Fortnite-like seasonal map updates with new DLC’s.


Some have taken the seasonal updates to mean as the season changes from Winter to Spring to Summer and then to Autumn, the city will take a different shape. A previously uncovered patent hints at this aswell.

While most fans have started ruling out Vice City based on just that, that shouldn’t be the case. Florida is incredibly moody with there weather, and it’s not a shock to have one day of blistering heat and then another with torrential rain in the Spring.

Other possible GTA 6 map locations

If it’s not to be Vice City, then, where could we be headed that fits this seasonal changing theory?

An obvious answer for some is New York, better known as Liberty City in GTA universe. It covers every weather type possible and we’ve seen other franchises like Mafia take the New York setting and give it some rain, snow, sunshine, and possibly storms. Same can also be said for Chicago, which was one of the cities mentioned as a possible location in early GTA 6 leaks. But that would have been a throwback rather than modern setting.

There’s also a possibility of it being London or somewhere else in Europe. It fits in the GTA universe since London was home to the original GTA series and there has been some speculation about London being used in GTA 6. Same can be said for Rockstar’s home in Scotland. However, nobody seems to know.

Some long-standing rumors have also hinted that South America would be used in some way – with Bogota, Colombia being mentioned over and over, as well as some remote islands.


“Some theories have suggested that wires have gotten crossed especially with the remote island rumors, given that was used in Red Dead Redemption 2 and more recently in the Cayo Perico heist for GTA Online.”

Ultimately, nobody will know where the game is going to be set until either Rockstar Games or their publishers Take-Two confirm details about it.

All signs might point to Vice City, but that’s because that’s the location that fans have locked in on. Rockstar might have something entire different lined up, we’ll just have to wait and see.

xQc explains why he now “hates” doing collab streams with other Twitch stars

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
