GTA 6 2025 release window, Vice City setting, and Fortnite-style map reports corroborated

By Sean Carey,
A recent report that suggested Grand Theft Auto 6 is set in a modern-day recreation of Vice City and might not be released until 2025 has been corroborated by Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier.

Heists 12/16/14

Tom Henderson, who has proven reliable for insider Battlefield information, uploaded a video to YouTube last week explaining that he'd heard Rockstar will return to Vice City in GTA 6, but it will be a modern-day recreation of the setting with a map that evolves and change over time, similar to how Fortnite's map changes with new seasons. Henderson also told viewers they shouldn't expect GTA 6 until 2025 at the earliest and to take this information with a pinch of salt.

However, Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier has now backed up Henderson, saying that everything he's heard about GTA 6 "matches up" with Henderson's report. In further tweets, Schreier says GTA 6 is still in early development, and it will have an evolving and expanding map. VGC's Andy Robinson also tweeted, saying he has heard similar information to Henderson's and Schreier's.

Much like how Henderson urged his viewers, it's worth taking this information with a pinch of salt until Rockstar makes any sort of official announcement. However, with multiple trusted sources backing up the rumour, it does make the leak seem a little more concrete.

Take-Two says it plans to launch 62 games by 2024, with one of those being Grand Theft Auto 5, again. Expanded and enhanced versions of GTA 5 and GTA Online will arrive for Xbox Series X|S on November 11th.
