Setting and Plot- GTA6

The rumors have to say a lot about the setting of GTA6. Apart from the setting being Vice City, there are also rumors that GTA6 may be set in London. It also seems a possibility for Rockstar to look back at the ’80s era, if set in London. If so, this would be a drastic change on the side of Rockstar. Until now, they have worked on only modernizing their settings and locations more.

However, these are just assumptions, and nothing is certain yet. However, a potential sneak peek conveys that the game’s setting is in modern-day liberty city.

It will expand through upgrades, while the locations will change according to the story. The plot is likely related to the drug empire. Starting from the bottom, raising a notorious empire on your own. In addition to that, a new female character may be included. So far, none has been there.

Many more leaks are suggesting that the game is in development. Code-named PROJECT AMERICA, GTA6 will have its setting likely in Vice city or in Rio (Brazil). Many cities are candidates like London, Tokyo, San Andreas, and more.


We may have reached a conclusion but GTA6 hasn’t. Rockstar has neither confirmed nor denied the very existence of GTA6. The rumors circulating so far are still not confirmed. However, the game may not possibly be disappointing for us gamers. We may keep faith in Rockstar, having witnessed their ambitious attempts in GTA5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. However, Rockstar may be attempting to expand their dominance online through GTA6. It is due to the massive success of GTA online. Releasing on PS5 or Xbox Series X or PC, GTA6 may not have an offline story mode like it’s predecessors.
