GTA 5 was the biggest title in the series ever, but had a fairly static map in the campaign mode.
This changed in GTA Online, where updates added new content and unlocked new points of interest.
Now prominent YouTube leaker Tom Henderson says that the map will evolve over time.
He said it’s like Fortnite, where different “seasons” offer major changes to the design of the map.
According to Henderson, the GTA 6 Online will take place in Vice City.
The original GTA Vice City game came out in 2002, but was set in 1986.
However the new version of Vice City is expected to be modern, to make content additions easier to manage.
He also claimed that we may not see GTA VI “until 2024-2025.”
“If you’re expecting to play this game in the next couple of years I would put your expectations in check,” Henderson said.
Multiple factors have contributed to the game’s delay, the influencer told his 102,000 YouTube subscribers.
Rockstar is making efforts to address its “crunch culture”, for instance, with more of a focus on employee wellbeing.
The firm came under fire following the release of both GTA:V and 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2 after workers reported working overtime for months on end in the lead up to release.
Rockstar is aiming to “avoid very harsh hours” throughout the development of GTA VI, according to Henderson.
The leaker also said that the next GTA “is going to release solely on current-gen consoles and PC.”
“It is not going to release on past-generation consoles,” he added.
Sadly, it’s impossible to say if Henderson’s claims are true.
We won’t know anything until Rockstar officially unveils the new game.
Last year, alleged details about GTA 6 surfaced online.
A purported former employee of Rockstar leaked apparent info about the game, including the names of the main characters.
