After more than 10 years, GTA fans finally have something concrete to look forward to, as Rockstar has prepared a trailer for the long-awaited sequel to the game – GTA 6. Currently, the main topic in the GTA world is in which city the game will be set. Several cities are in circulation, and many people think it will be in Miami.

Vice City 2?

We all remember that the legendary GTA Vice City was located in the city of the same name, which was modeled after Miami and closely resembles the capital of Florida. Earlier cities in the game were also all based on real-life big cities in the USA – Los Santos on Los Angeles and Liberty City on New York. Now, the question arises whether the developers and publishers have decided that the new game will be located in Miami itself.

Some fans on Reddit are hoping that GTA 6 will include all of South Florida, with multiple cities such as Tampa, Key West, Naples, and the greater Miami area. It would certainly represent a big venture since it is a huge area, and the map would be extremely large in that case, to the general delight of many players around the world.

Bloomberg published a report where they reported that the game will indeed be set in fictional Miami. The report also states that the game will have two protagonists – a man and a woman. “Early designs called for the inclusion of territories modeled after large swaths of North and South America, but the company reeled in those ambitions,” stated Bloomberg.

There are also stories that the initial version of the game will indeed be located in Miami, but that the plan of the developers is to expand the map over time and add new missions, as well as whole new cities.

Personally, I think Miami would be a solid choice for the main city in the game because it will make me nostalgic and definitely remind me of Vice City. With Tommy Vercetti and Scarface vibe, I expect the game to achieve all the things that grace the GTA franchise. Also, I feel that Miami fits perfectly with the overall image provided by GTA and would give players a special kind of satisfaction.

What Do We Know So Far?

The release of GTA 6 is sure to be one of the biggest events in the gaming world this decade. The announcement of the official trailer will coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Rockstar Games. The company confirmed back in February 2022 that the development of GTA 6 is in “active development,” but the announcement of an official release date is still far away, it seems.

We have to point out that various speculations about the release date are spreading all over the internet. It is known that back in 2018, a hacker broke into the GTA Online system and published a fake teaser about the release date of GTA 6. That’s why the smartest solution is to follow the official website and social media accounts of Rockstar. We must also not forget that the company has a “habit” of delaying release dates, which has already happened with big titles like GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
