GTA VI map leak?

Recommended Posts

killdrivetheftvehicle

I have seen this kind of work in the mapmaking thread, so, I don't think this is a leak. Someone has made a map, but it's not R*.

Those are obviously fan-made because parts are copy/pasted and the city layouts don't always make sense.

Probably fake but the speculation is exciting nonetheless lol

As others have pointed out, it's 2019. Even budget smartphones can take a photo of a much higher clarity than the one posted. In addition, making fake maps is not a new thing, nor is it necessarily difficult. Case in point:

Spoiler

qVT7EsS.jpg

Looking at the map, the road structure for the country area looks like something out of Forza Horizon. Far too simple for such a large area, and the blending is suspect. The islands for Vice City do look more or less how I'd expect R* to deal with them, but the rest of the map seems an afterthought. And if you can remember that much detail from the "whole" map, then why draw it in Paint instead of taking another photo?

 

That said, there is one small possibility that this photo could be a hell of a lot older than the OP has let on, thus explaining the dismal quality somewhat. It's a known fact that work on IV began the second San Andreas released, during which both Stories Games, Midnight Club 3, The Warriors, Bully and Manhunt 2 were put out by the company. In this instance, there are two possibilities:

  • 1. The map for Vice City was designed at the same time as LS, and this photo is from the beginning of this decade.
  • 2. The map for Vice City was designed immediately after LS, placing it from 2012 - 2013.

That is the only way I see this being in any shape real. That the photo has been sat on for a long while and only posted now that a lot of ex R* employees have split from the company. Just to entertain the very slim chance that it isn't yet another fake.

 

Finally I decided to run the original image through FotoForensics, in order to easily spot any evidence for Photoshop.

Spoiler

Parts of the water do seem to be suspect (there's a slight blue tinge that doesn't look natural), but the landmass doesn't show any obvious signs of manipulation.

 

In conclusion, I am erring on the side of caution since map leaks have never proven true, though leaks in general still occur with regards to GTA (such as the one which named the characters a full year in advance, along with the infamous "Albert Da Silva"), but if they did, I doubt you'd see them. And the map shape is far too similar to Los Santos. No way they'd make a map that close to one they already have.

This looks very fake to me, the formation of the islands are what set me off, the island near the main city(which I assume it's Vice City) looks mostly believable because that how I think R* would do Vice City in the HD universe...

 

But that lonely island southeast of the map? And quite far away from everything else? Looks like it was just pasted in there.

 

And there are no other islands like the lone either that could justify the odd formations.

 

Also, wasn't the city and the land meant to be to the south, with the everglades to the west?

 

Also, I think a setting in 1985 is very unlikely as it limits content possibilities...But it has my full support of it if that's what they decide to do.

Actually if you look at Southern Florida there is a lot of green country and Everglades to the south of Miami all the way to the keys.  I lived between Miami and key largo for a couple years.  

The comments regarding this photo as fake due to low quality aren’t considering the fact that this photo could’ve been taken from a distance or zoomed up onto from as much as 100 ft. Away. If taken quickly from a phone camera it may not have had time to focus.

This was posted on Reddit, but the original source appears to be from Twitter - https://twitter.com/9teen8E5

 

There's also a drawing of the full map. Things get a little interesting if you look at the Twitter page's "following" section.

This is most likely what the map will be like, even if it is fake. The small island to the right is most likely their fictional Nassau, Bahamas. The lower island looks more likely to be Jamaica.

Maybe the prologue will be in 1985? Or perhaps a chapter system like in red dead 2 that time will advance through.

This is one that won't go away. That guy on reddit who pretends to look on his friends laptop while he's away is using this same map (I have them all archived). Which I find quite funny, had he not been doing that, he might have gotten away with it. I could actually see that original satellite map being real. Looks the part, looks about the right size, and looks like what Rockstar would do with a modern rendition of Miami. I've seen a lot of arguments in this thread about proportions, road sizes and stuff, none of which I agree with. I actually think it's a fairly well done map. Whoever made it should be proud. But surely it can't be real.

I’ll go on record and say that I think that map is a genuine leak. So I can come back and quote myself if I’m right lol

 

I said it was most likely fake above but changed my mind.

Yeah, but the difference was that RDR2's leaked map was a detailed map, with location names and markers, etc. This one if fairly bland by comparison. And it's being followed up by a user that is trying too hard, and is spewing extremely hard to believe bullsh*t. Of course that doesn't mean the original map is fake, had someody done something similar with RDR2's map we'd of belived it were fake, too. In fact, something similar happened to Fortnite recently. 

 

The new map leaked online, everybody thought it was fake, then a random twitter user claimed he made the map and it's just a fan concept. So he put a watermark on it.... Then it turns out it really was real

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-10-16-fortnites-new-map-leaked-online-weeks-ago-and-no-one-believed-it-was-real

 

So anything is possible, and one of the many reasons I've decided to archive as many of these leaks as I can.

Mainly instinct. But I also think that’s how Rockstar would reimagine Vice City or similar to that.

 

The recent leaks proving they are scouting for interiors in Miami which suggests they did the main map a while ago. As others have said the proportions of the map seem fine. It just caught my attention because it came out of nowhere and wasn’t really preceded by many other leaks. No accompanying info with it either. No wish list type info etc. Just a map with 1985. I don’t see why they’d label the map either it just seem like a very early version of the map to me. I’m not sure if correct, but this surfaced not long after The Know leak suggesting a return to Vice City?

 

The game will probably be that sort of map along with the South American linear areas/missions I think.

 

Could be completely wrong of course.

I still think it's highly unlikely a map will ever leak again unless its a controlled leak to test fan reaction and feedback.

But then wouldn't that have to be done very early on?

I'm not so sure.The closer a game like GTA6 gets to its completion, the more people get to work on it - particularly when it goes into heavy testing, promotion planning and so on. So the chances of a legit leak increase.

 

(Although I have no idea at all if that map is real or not, and I have no reason to suspect that GTA6 is about to come out anytime soon!)

Nobody here is arguing that it's real and needs to be proven fake though. I said it before and I'll say it again - I like GTA hoaxes.

Ooh, memories. I remember the one with the woman. I was excited to think, if it'll be kill bill style story. That would work nice.
