Unless you’ve just woken up from a week-long slumber, you’ve probably heard about the leaked GTA 6 videos and screenshots. You may have even seen some before Rockstar started wiping them off the internet. Even if you see them, sharing them is risky business. That’s why some dedicated GTA fans have been trying to draw a map of the game using MS Paint.
Kotaku reported the fascinating efforts of more than 100 people who want to know what the GTA 6 map looks like. Since the screenshots are basically gone and sharing them could lead to legal consequences, GTA fans have been recreating them and trying to stitch them together using Paint, math, and even Google Earth, searching satellite images for screenshots they’re not allowed to take. to use.
A time-consuming process that has Church of GTA and other unofficial GTA 6 cartographers pouring their efforts into Discord. There, map creators are free to look at whatever screenshots and clips they can still find to make recreating Vice City, where GTA 6 appears to be set, that much easier. As you can see below, what they’ve managed to put together so far is pretty remarkable.
The map is massive, as expected. Chances are GTA 6’s Vice City and wherever other players can visit will be much bigger than Los Santos. Some of the leaks include coordinates that, along with engine measurements used in GTA 5, allowed the Church of GTA and anyone else trying to map the game to get a rough idea of how big Vice City and the surrounding area might be.
This is actually a common occurrence in GTA circles. Fans did the same thing when Rockstar dropped the first trailer for GTA 5. In that case, the task was a little easier because there was an official source that wasn’t quickly taken down. The map they came up with a decade ago was actually very close to the real thing, so there’s a good chance the map above is comparable to what GTA 6 will look like whenever it launches. A launch that was allegedly not delayed due to leaks according to Rockstar.
