• Rumors have it that "GTA 6" is set in the fictional Vice City
  • Rockstar Games confirmed it is working on the next "GTA"
  • Gaming studio has not yet revealed the game's official title

A supposed first look of the next "Grand Theft Auto" installment, presumably "GTA 6," has surfaced online, apparently revealing the upcoming title's location, and it seems a lot of fans missed it despite that it was apparent all along.

Interestingly, a Twitter user and an industry insider who goes by the name Matheusvictorbr- shared an image of a painting that they claimed is from the upcoming "GTA" installment, as confirmed by their sources. Moreover, the insider pointed out that the picture was taken from "GTA San Andreas: Definitive Edition."

Apart from the supposed first look at "GTA 6," the insider also noted that the picture is set in Hollywood, Florida, which suggested that the highly anticipated title is set in Miami. This gives credence to earlier rumors that the game will be set in Vice City, the fictional take of the series to Miami.

The insider's information was further backed by another insider NEWSLEAKSGTAS, who confirmed the game is set in Miami and "they were right all along." Speculations that the game will be set in Miami floated online as early as 2019 when a Reddit user claimed they did a playtesting of "Red Dead Redemption 2" and "GTA 6."

The post, which has since been deleted, revealed that the next "Grand Theft Auto" installment will feature a "stupendously huge map." They also detailed a couple of playable territories in-game, namely the "dirty East Coast area based in Boston" and "Vice City."

Fans had waited for more than a decade before Rockstar Games confirmed that a new "Grand Theft Auto" installment is in development. Unfortunately, this is the only thing the gaming studio has acknowledged despite the plethora of rumors and speculations surrounding the highly anticipated game.

Insider NEWSLEAKSGTAS also noted that the game's official reveal could be imminent. A possible game announcement could happen in May or in October, at the latest, they said.

It is worth noting that these are not official details but rather speculations. Fans should temper their expectations and take the latest set of rumors as highly speculative at this stage.
