The information about GTA 6 does not stop flowing. Last week, Jason Schreir, a journalist for Bloomberg and one of the most reliable sources in the industry, revealed important details about the development of the game. In addition, it reinforced the rumors about a Miami-inspired setting. Namely, Vice City. This week, however, a insider already known in the world GTA contributed some important facts about the map.
With every delivery of Grand Theft Autothe theme of the map is one of those that generates the most expectation, and with GTA 6 has not been the exception. Obviously, considering that each generation of consoles represents a technical leap, it is normal for players to expect a much larger and more detailed stage. Will the new game meet both items? It seems that if.
According to information from insider matheusvictorbr, the main map GTA 6 will be as big as Red Dead Redemption 2. Major? Yes, because apparently Rockstar will add other territories later through downloadable content. The leaker also mentions that we can visit the Caribbean in a secondary map. Rumors have been circulating for a long time about a city based on Cuba, although this time there is no information to that effect.
Now how big is the map? Red Dead Redemption 2 compared, for example, with GTA 5? The truth is its size is smaller. The above is not necessarily bad news, and I’ll explain why.
First of all, in its most recent projects, Rockstar has changed its priorities when it comes to designing a new map. They aspire to a scene with a higher level of detail instead of one of greater dimensions. We saw it in GTA 5 and more recently in Red Dead Redemption 2.
At this point it is also important to put the Bloomberg report on the table. Jason Schreier mentioned that Rockstar is dedicating efforts so that GTA 6 have more indoor locations, which has historically been one of the franchise’s weak points. Therefore, both information combine perfectly.
Secondly, we must remember that, on the Vice City map, at least in the game that was released during 2002, dominated the urban area. Therefore, the large tracts with natural landscapes were reserved for the San Andreas area. We do not know, yes, if the new recreation of Vice City will follow the same design line.
But even though the main map of GTA 6 might not be as big as GTA 5, the idea of exploring additional zones outside of Vice City changes everything. It would be the first time that we return to this playable proposal after Grand Theft Auto: San Andreasgame where it was possible to explore Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas.
The primary goal, of course, is to keep players interested in GTA 6 years after its release. It would certainly be take the DLCs of the franchise to a new level.
