Up For Debate - Where Do You Think Grand Theft Auto 6 Will Be Set?

There are few surer bets in the world of gaming than Grand Theft Auto 6. GTA 5 has shifted 65 million units and counting, and still consistently sits near the top of the bestseller charts. Take-Two execs will have been leaning on Rockstar to get it out as quickly as possible. As hyped as gamers are for Red Dead 3, Rockstar will be lucky if it sells even a quarter of GTA 6.

So it’s coming then. Not now, and probably not soon, but it’s coming. The big question then is - where is Grand Theft Auto 6 going to be set?

Up until now we’ve had GTA games set in approximations of LA, New York, Miami, Las Vegas; even London. The major US cities, at least from a tourists perspective, have basically been ticked off already. However, co-creator Dan House said back in 2013 that despite the GTA: London spin-off, “GTA is America”.

That pretty much rules out any locations aboard, unless something major happened to change Houser’s thinking between then and now. We’ve certainly heard rumours of a GTA Tokyo, and it’s not hard to think of all sorts of cool locations to base a sequel in. The problem is, few are as rich for satire and as iconic as the American locales.

For me personally I’d like to see a return to the East Coast, but not just enough New York rehash. A San Andreas-style mix of areas would be great, including Maryland, New Jersey, New York and perhaps even Maine. I’m talking full blown, The Wire-style cops and gangsters drama, preferably seen from both sides of the law. Come on Rockstar, you know you want to. Failing that, come on over to merry old England. I've always wanted to have a car chase in Slough.

So that’s where I’d like to see Rockstar set GTA 6, although I’ve got my doubts as to whether they’d actually do it. So where do you think Rockstar is going to set GTA 6, and also where would you like them to?

Where do you think GTA 6 will be set?

Why not Chicago? or Florida. these are like, the most crime-filled places. would be perfect for a game, and neither one has ever been used in GTA so something new would be much more worth trying.

Chicago of the 1920s would be soo awesome... corrupt and lawless city back in these days, just perfect for gta... but not very realistic i guess

Rockstar said GTA VI won't be in Miami (Vice City), but said nothing about Las Vegas (Las Venturas) or San Francisco (San Fierro). I believe and I hope it will be in Las Venturas.

I really can't find that Vice City statement anywhere, but I would really if it was set in either Las Venturas or San Fierro :D

Somewhere that isn't majorly generic or "reminiscent" of the previous games set in cities. Maybe a european setting? hell, might even run into Niko Bellic!

I doubt Rockstar would ever do this, but I was just thinking of the TV series Justified and its setting (although it was never actually filmed there) of Eastern Kentucky, in the backwoods and hollows. As for a city setting, there's Lexington, and then there's the Harlan County area with all the big hills and rickety old mine shafts... eh, nevermind, that would never work for a GTA game. Maybe a Far Cry game, though.

Personally, i would like Gta 6's map to be Vice City, San Andreas, and Gta 4 combined :). Instead of the whole world map thing, that would be impossible for one reason, and would be very stupid.

haha! Mumbai!! It's impossible to map mumbai. It's easier to merge all previous maps in VI but the density of the city would make it the most difficult task ever! But still, if it's really rolling, I'd be happy to see how they do it. I think they should stick to NYC.

Its not about mapping, but the idea of putting any Indian city for GTA is not good.
Standards.
Well, FarCry 4 Himalayan reference was very good though.

Just imagining the day when video games will have a whole Earth/Globe to roam around. LoL .
(by the way , MIAMI is my first choice since there is only one GTA based on Miami unlike others )
