The latest rumors surrounding Grand Theft Auto 6 paint a tantalizing picture of what's to come. But, while it's common knowledge that GTA 6 will let players walk through the sun-drenched streets of Vice City, Rockstar Games' sparkling recreation of Miami, the whispers suggest that the next entry's journey won't end there.
Intriguing hints point to multiple new locations to explore, promising what could be a thrilling tale through the sun-soaked landscapes of Cuba.
Insider information from Tyler McVicker corroborates the older rumors that GTA 6's single-player campaign will feature a tragic Bonnie and Clyde tale, a timeless saga of love and crime featuring protagonists reportedly named Jason and Lucia.
Interestingly enough, GTA 6's story could feature a major time skip as well.
Between the rumors of a time jump in the story, an epic tale of bank-robbing as well as a daliance with the Colombian cartel, all set against the vivid backdrops of Miami and Cuba, it's no wonder that fans are itching to have a go at GTA 6.
The concept of visiting a different setting in a Rockstar game isn't new. Rockstar previously did this with Red Dead Redemption 2, taking players to Guarma. Later datamined details all hint that Rockstar had bigger plans for the locale but this went unrealized for one reason or another. It's unclear if Cuba will be a recurring part of the main GTA 6 map or a one-off location like the town of North Yankton from GTA 5.
Previously, Twitter user @Matheusbr9895_ brought up the topic of the same archipelago in April. According to the since-deleted tweet, GTA 6 might feature Carcer City, the delayed and crime-ridden setting of Rockstar's controversial Manhunt games. The said city, which is inspired by the more crime-ridden parts of Philadelphia, has been mentioned several times in older GTA games. The GTA 5 protagonist, Michael De Santa, even claims that he once robbed a bank on the outskirts of Carcer City.
Finally, the leaker mentions that the GTA 6 map will include a certain Havana with a "drug hut" in it.
From Cuba to Vice City, Brazil, and even Colombia, one thing about GTA 6 is clear: it's going to be larger and more expansive than any GTA game before it.
Only time will tell if we'll find out about GTA 6 later this year or not. For now, Rockstar is in the middle of expanding GTA Online with a new massive update.
