The gaming community is abuzz with the latest leaks surrounding the highly anticipated “Grand Theft Auto VI” (GTA 6), as details about the scale of the Vice City map have been unveiled. According to recent updates, the map of Leonida—a fictional state based on Florida—is said to be larger than the maps of GTA 3, Vice City, San Andreas, GTA 4, and GTA 5 combined.

Fans have been eagerly piecing together the layout of Leonida, using coordinates from the leaked trailer, speculation, and various online discussions. The mapping project has recently expanded its version to include the ‘panhandle’ area, hinting at a vast open world for players to explore.

Rockstar Games, the developer behind the GTA series, has faced some setbacks with the development of GTA 6. Reports suggest that the game could be delayed until 2026, with Fall 2025 being the targeted release period by the employees at Rockstar. This comes after a majority of employees were called back to the office full-time, leading to some backlash.

Despite the potential delay, the excitement hasn’t waned. Since Rockstar released the trailer for GTA 6 in early December, following an online leak, social media has been rife with theories and discussions about the game’s content and release details. This level of anticipation is not surprising, considering the enduring popularity of GTA 5, which is still a favorite among gamers nearly a decade after its release.

The leaked Vice City map for GTA 6 suggests a much larger playing field than its predecessors, with the new game expected to offer a significantly bigger open world. This aligns with the franchise’s tradition of providing expansive and immersive environments for players to engage with.

As the gaming world waits with bated breath for further announcements, these leaks serve as a tantalizing preview of what’s to come in the next chapter of the Grand Theft Auto saga. With a legacy of setting the bar high, Rockstar Games is poised to deliver another groundbreaking experience with GTA 6.
