A Leak-Based, Fan-Made GTA 6 Map is in the Works

Rockstar Games

Although Grand Theft Auto VI has yet to even be officially revealed, it appears the series' community is already putting the pieces together to figure out just what the series' next map will look like.

It's been a busy week to say the least for GTA studio Rockstar Games, as roughly90 videos of Grand Theft Auto 6 gameplay were confirmed to have been leaked in one fell swoop. And while Rockstar has since rebuffed that the leak won't affect the game's development, as it continues to actively suppress the incident using legal actions and DMCA takedowns, it seems players have already gotten plenty of information needed to put together a fan-made estimation of GTA 6's map.

As posted on Church of GTA on Twitter less than three days since leaks of the highly anticipated title first surfaced, an impressive amount of coordination and effort has seemingly already begun connecting the dots.

In the GTA Forums, there has been plenty of discussion taking place to work out how to most accurately map the leaked content without including images that could spell trouble.

For instance, to help illustrate certain locations, some have even used Microsoft Paint to draw key figures seen in the leaks.

Of course, perhaps the most concrete details that the leaks seem to have confirmed thus far is that GTA 6 will take place in a new version of Vice City and feature a Bonnie & Clyde-inspired heist story.

Ultimately, it will be interesting to see how far these efforts go. If history tells us anything, it seems the bar has already been set pretty high as in 2011, those who used screenshots, trailers, previews and promotional media for GTA V ended up with a fan-made map that just about hit the nail on the head.

Rockstar Games has not indicated when it would next reveal official information about GTA 6. Back in February, Rockstar initially confirmed that GTA 6 was in development.
