According to a new rumor released by ComicBook, the upcoming Grand Theft Auto map will span across multiple cities and regions, including both familiar and new areas. According to this new information, players will have the opportunity to return to the iconic Vice City and Liberty City, fictional versions of Miami and New York City.
The rumor also adds that Carcer City will be returning, which was never truly present in the game but is referenced several times. Carcer City is where Manhunt, another series from the Rockstar Games studio, takes place. In the GTA universe, Carcer City is spoken of as a dangerous place, a city in disrepair, located in the vicinity of Liberty City. It will be a caricature of the city’s Rust Belt.
Anyway, the rumor doesn’t end here. It also says that players will be able to travel across borders, at least as far as Cuba.
The source of this rumor is Matheusvictorbr, a Twitter user recognized for the reliable information he delivers precisely about the GTA franchise. He brought rumors of many details that later proved to be true in the past, but he was also wrong about some things. Therefore, you should view all the information presented here as just a rumor, at least until the official entities pronounce on the matter.
Previous rumors pointed out that the next GTA will be built over multiple cities and even multiple countries.
There is no set release date or window, although the latest rumors point to 2024.
