According to a new rumor, GTA 6 has more than one map. Extensive reporting, multiple leaks, and even some possible teasing from Rockstar Games itself here and there, all point towards Vice City, the series’ fictional take on Miami, as being the game’s primary setting. The emphasis here is on “primary,” because the expectation is there may be more of Flordia as Rockstar Games fleshes out the area covering Vice City/Miami.
At different points, courtesy of different rumors and leaks, we’ve heard that part of the game’s map will be The Caribbean. The latest news comes from Matheusvictorbr, a well-known leaker in the GTA community, and a leaker who leaked that the game has two protagonists and that one of these two characters is female. According to the insider, the Caribbean islands are in the game, but will not be included in the open world itself, which suggests that at some point in the game players will find themselves in the Caribbean, similar to how a whole chapter in Red Dead Redemption 2 takes place in Guarma.
That said, while Rockstar Games used a secondary map with Red Dead Redemption 2, it hasn’t really done this much with Grand Theft Auto. Further, the Caribbean is right next to Miami, so it would be odd for there to be a separate Caribbean map when you could just tack that onto the main map.
All of that said, take everything here with a grain of salt. While the source in question has been on the mark in the past, they’ve also been off the mark in the past. Further, even if everything here is accurate, it doesn’t mean it will remain so. Rockstar Games has a standing for cutting lots of content towards the end of development, more so than other developers, and not because it’s incomplete but because it’s deemed insufficient. It’s considered hours and hours of Red Dead Redemption 2 were cut close to the end of development.
