GTA 6 is taking us back to Vice City, but Florida doesn’t exist.
The planned release of GTA 6’s reveal trailer for today was thwarted by a leak, prompting Rockstar to expedite its unveiling. This unexpected early release is especially welcome as it allows us to appreciate the game without the interference of a prominent cryptocurrency advertisement.
The initial trailer not only substantiates various speculations, such as the presence of protagonists reminiscent of Bonnie & Clyde, but also discloses that the game will be situated in Vice City once again—albeit with a notable reduction in Hawaiian shirts this time around.
At the 41-second mark, colossal letters forming the word “VICE” dominate the screen, conclusively affirming Rockstar’s return to the Miami-inspired setting, much akin to GTA 4 revisiting Liberty City and GTA 5 exploring San Andreas.
Interestingly, last year fans noticed an incongruity in GTA 5’s map, which seemingly negated the existence of the state of Florida. Despite Vice City references in the game, there was no corresponding acknowledgment of Florida. Speculations arose, suggesting it was an oversight or an intentional omission, leading to jokes about the state being submerged. However, the unveiling of GTA 6 dispels these notions, revealing that the game is set in the fictional state of Leonida, providing a plausible explanation for Vice City’s reappearance.
While the absence of the Everglade State from the map is conspicuous, Rockstar boasts that this new region represents “the biggest, most immersive evolution of the Grand Theft Auto series yet.”
Vice City had been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors before the official trailer confirmation. An unexpected mention of Vice City appeared on 50 Cent’s Instagram, where he posted a photo of the game’s logo with the cryptic message “I will explain this later.” Despite initial speculation of a cameo, it was eventually revealed that 50 Cent was merely promoting his new TV show. In a serendipitous twist, his post inadvertently foreshadowed the return of Vice City.
