GTA VI Rumored Map Analysis Thread

Looks real to me.

Considering this is true, is there any chance that the main island could have been enlarged through the time ? I feel like the "Florida" part is kinda small.

 

I also would have seen Vice City in the southeast part of the island, corresponding to the geographical location of Miami in Florida.

I still can't believe you actually think this could be real. The transition city - countryside looks fake as hell, photoshop level 3/10.

I think there is a mild chance this could be real, given I typically err on the side of caution due to high skepticism over the years. I also note that the countryside and city don't blend very well when it comes to something rather abrupt. The biggest reason I pulled this map back out was because of the newly rendered southeast island that was adapted to what was drawn a couple years ago, and does not look as low-detailed as what we have of "Vice City." 

 

And I'm not worried about criticism since I think it's great to discuss this stuff. I want this map to be debunked, and I guess when that happens this thread can close. But there's something unusual about what's been posted that makes me wonder its origins, as I haven't seen another leak come close to this for "GTA VI" thus far.

I don’t know, the main island just looks way to small tbh. I would’ve expected more from a next gen GTA game of this sort. This can’t be it.

I don’t get why people are so fast to conclude that the map is even real at this point. Until we have a trailer to go off on or something similar to compare with we shouldn’t conclude it as being real at all. Sure you can have a hunch about it but that doesn’t make it legit though.

 

I also don’t buy the fact that the map couldn’t be a photoshop or a fan-make, cuz why not? It wouldn’t surprise me at all if there is someone out there that’s making up all this crap just to f*ck with us. Think about it.

Yeah it looks too obvious. Like it's exactly what fans have speculated it will be. It looks like exactly what a fan trying to guess what the next map will be like would come up with down to a t: Vice City, 80s, large surrounding area including swamps, multiple further off islands, and loosely based on the real layout of Miami along with some influence from the original VC map. I don't buy that it would be that close to fan speculation/wishes with no surprises at all, no way.

 

Also lol why would it have "1985" written on the map like that? Talk about try hard. Seems like an obvious fake even just based on that alone.

Maybe countrisyde and city don't blend well because the map is still work in progress, so everything can change. 

I don't know, I don't have a clue of how a world is built, or how a game works 🤔

I'm not seeing it as real. When I think Miami in a geographical sense, I think of how long and narrow it is compared to pretty much any other metropolitan area. This map just does not have that. The city has been compacted into the typical idea of how a city looks (that being an oblong), doing just enough to fit the Beach area into it. If that urban area on the south by the Keys is Homestead, it's been split from the metropolitan area unneccesarily, considering the geographic accuracy of the two previous maps in replicating their metropolitan areas. While we don't know what those other cities are, the geography of that western area does make it look like it's based on Cape Coral. In that case, where's the urban area on the northern land of that river?

 

Yeah, I can't debunk the leak with fact, but when comparing this map against the previous two GTA maps (even accounting for the placement of Blaine County when compared to the Imperial and Riverside counties of California), there's every reason to say that this is factually fake.

You could say similar things about NY & LA in GTA IV & V, though. Just saying, I don't think that's grounds to say it's real or fake, one way or another.

1985 (or "9teen8E5") is the twitter account name of the guy who originally uploaded these map images back in 2018

I think its Plausible, reasons could be The Scouting of Miami that was months ago.

 

Yet i don't really think there will be multiple islands, especially for their new source of income GTA:Online2 or GTA:OnlineVice, how would this work?

 

EDIT: that was... exactly 1 year ago... coincidence?

 

probably.

Thing is though, what's to say that the famous scouting of Miami was for Six? It could be for a DLC. Hell, that map - or some of it - could be for a DLC.

 

I'm by no means suggesting that's likely, and I'm by no means saying that the map is credible. Though it is worth bearing in mind that multiple projects go on simultaneously. The possibility that we are seeing crossovers, especially those from their early development stages, should at least to be considered if only to be ruled-out.

 

For example, there's much speculation on the 'next online DLC' thread that we will see a map expansion and a new island at the end of this year. Maybe it's worth keeping an open mind about that one. If Six is still in the early stages of development, what's to say that they've taken one of the smaller islands from an early version of the Six map that was maybe made as a concept a few years ago, perhaps an island which has a geography that could plausibly be off the coast of Los Santos, and re-purposed it for the DLC? That might explain how R* confidently feel they can announce then deliver the 'biggest ever DLC' update in a relatively short space of time. Much of the foundations of the work had already been done and then maybe left dormant as different directions were pursued for Six.  

 

Again, just putting it out there. Not saying that's my view! 😆

You could say similar things about NY and LA. With NY, the focus was on the City area with just a small portion of the metropolitan area included with New Jersey. Just that section on it's own is not as long as the Miama MA. And even discounting how much of LA's MA was used, it still isn't as long as Miami. And sure, you could say they'd focus on only a small portion of the MA the same as with the other two. But the other two did not split their MAs the same as what this map is doing for Miami. Homestead is a part of that MA, with what looks to be the Oleta River State Park as the northernmost point featured. That's still longer than what the other two MAs have given us in realistic terms.

Here are sharper and inverted pictures. Maybe someone can spot something interesting here.
Different quality of the picture (roads) on different parts of the map suggests that this picture is stitched up and indeed fake.

I’m not saying it’s real but if it was I don’t think this debunks much, considering it looks in a mock up WIP phase. Unless I’m not 100% getting your argument. Apologies if so.

This island in particular raises an eyebrow for me. The color filter really shows the beaches to be kinda strange. No island of that apparent size would have a uniform width of beach all the way around it, there would inevitably be places where there are cliffs, swamps, rocks etc.

 

So it's either the work of a naive faker who doesn't understand basic natural geography, or it's a super-early and crude version of a legit map - maybe even just a development concept.

But every other island does have them as different shapes/sizes, so... 🤷‍♂️

I get what you're saying, though. But if you look closely enough, there are differences in some areas. It's just not drastic.

Man, that photo at first it was like a bad fake crappy leak, at least it wasn´t blurry as usual. Something that is interesting is the map is 99% the same compared with the final map, the most remarkable changes are that they renamed New Bourdeaux to Saint Denis and they swapped the Annersburg and Van Horn locations, I wonder why, and I don´t know if they added it later but New Austin is not shown at the photo, but there are two green points where Thieves´ landing is supposed to be.

I'm seeing a similar look with the beaches too. On that island, there are a lot of areas shaded with that water texture within the beach lines, as opposed to black lining up with the shape of the island. I'm going to analyze a bit harder on it, and the "Vice City rendered" section this evening to look for more graphical flaws.

I tried to draw the roads in the normal version of the vice city one, and some roads dont make sense, although its very hard to see. I'll try to draw the roads in the inverted one

It's kinda strange that how we saw different versions of this map over the years. It all started with that nineteeneightyfive account on twitter. He only has one following which is Video Game Marketing (probably the same person). He has a photo with calendar and T2 logo under the calendar. Well, that is interesting. Also his last post is "Maybe I'll see you in 'Miami'.."

This photo is taken with a camera, you can tell it's a laptop screen by a sticky note on up left corner.

2) Second one is posted by CurryLav with a really bullsh*t story lmao. His words were:

"My friend will try to distract him while i will search his laptop and capture as many pictures as i can, everything will be posted here. He caught me off guard yesterday, he had some diarrhea (advice: don't buy Indian street food), but he almost caught me digging stuff from his laptop. I managed to take that pic and read a couple of .png devlogs. I am running out of excuses to meet him, so this day will be crucial for leaking stuff without him knowing it."

He also said Bully 2 is coming 2020/2021 so this person is full of sh*t we know that lol

So the white lines are beach or not? On the one hand, it looks suspiciously real and on the other hand, it looks fake as f**k.

Just so you know, it doesn't mean he posted them all. It's like ever since The Know reported on 'Project Americas' in March 2018, every other leak since then using that codename has just copied it to look real. CurryLav could have easily copied that map. But we don't know for certain.

ever since it came out, this is the only leak that got me excited during these hard times and I love seeing it again, blowing up this time, kinda reconfirms my belief in it. I keep thinking about that first tweet in 2018 that dropped the first pics, it really doesn't seem like the usual leak. I mean, the guy dropped it in style imo, just a quick short tweet with pics, a year and that's it, no other attention seeking bullshxt, no drama. 1985. you see all these super detailed stories leaking around, accompanied by all sorts of keyboard wars and useless arguing and then you have this simple tweet just sitting there peacefully, with 2 comments and 3 likes, just waiting to be discovered by those who really want to see it. it caught my eye the first time I saw it, it just gives you that GTA vibe and just looks like a proper, detailed map in its early stages. then we get the island pic again on the down low, in a 4chan thread with like 10 replies and the same quiet and efficient modus operandi - drop the pic and escape quietly, no drama, no interactions, post the stuff and let whoever wants to believe, believe. even if it turns out to be fake, I'm enjoying it. I feel that pre-V hype again and I love it.

@Arthur Bell I think I found some inconsistencies on the map. The two highways leading to the city, they seem to just fade out of the map, with the left making a sudden curve to the left. Ok, the right one might be a tunnel, but the left one too?

I was looking into it, but got tired of looking to pixels in a screen, but it seems that some buildings are over the road, and this is even more noticeable on the inverted map. Later I'll keep looking at it, but I would appreciate it if someone took a look at these inconsistencies.
