GTA 6 map to include the whole US?

Rockstar Games could have big ambitions for GTA 6, with the map encompassing the entire USA.

It hasn't been long since GTA 5 PC was released, but the internet is already gearing up to host all the GTA 6 rumours.

While a lot of fans are still messing around in Los Santos and Blaine County, rumour has it that Rockstar Games might actually map the whole of the US for GTA 6.

It's already been confirmed that GTA 6 is in development and will be bigger than GTA 5, but is it really possible to map America entirely?

The GTA 6 release date is rumoured to lie somewhere in 2020, giving Rockstar over five years to create the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. If the rumours of the game being set across the US, then five years wouldn't be that much time for the Rockstar team to recreate the entire US.

It may well mean that we need to take the rumour with a pinch of salt and GTA 6 might actually just include multiple US locations rather than just one city.

Or it could take cues from racer The Crew, which took the US and made it into a smaller, more navigable map that took an hour and a half in real time to drive from one side to the other.

However, Rockstar's history of city recreation is pretty epic, so we'd be intrigued to see what it has up its sleeves for GTA 6.

The MoviePilot rumour goes on to say that "loading the entirety of the USA would have its issues", especially as a lot of the country between cities is deserts and countryside, making driving from one locale to the other quite a chore.

With potentially five years to wait until GTA 6 arrives, we'll be having much the ponder on such an expansive map.

the pleasure...myself, I like taking people for taxi rides in the game. They should add interstate bus driving gigs.

It's certainly an interesting proposal but I can't ignore the hurdles. As mentioned, a shrunken version of the country is more feasible and has been used before in addition to an old favorite of mine, Pilotwings 64. Granted, that was a rather cartoony representation. Regardless, with the vast amount of 3D mapped terrain accessible via google maps' "Earth" it would seem that one has a head start... although I was told by a far more knowledgeable friend that despite the features offered by google maps, a playable open world would have to be constructed from scratch. I wouldn't put it past Rockstar to offer a multi city world for gta6, and would even speculate that with an option to fast travel between said cities, a player might also have the option to commute the long way, even if the ground they covered along the way was purely for show and offered no playable features.

I've stated several times before. TR used to be a decent review site. But now its full of rumour milling and speculation for the advertising revenue. Shame that. I once actually trusted the reviews, but now find that their reviews of stuff most people would actually want to buy don't happen anymore. Sad this.
