Even though few things to cling to, fans have been chewing at the bit for news about Rockstar Games' upcoming Grand Theft Auto 6, even when there are few bits to stick to. The latest speculation comes from a Rockstar Games employee's social media account, where fans have speculated on what appears to be a cryptic image.
This particular tweet comes from Tony Mesones, the Soundtrack Manager/Music Supervisor for Rockstar Games. They uploaded a photo from a recent trip that has triggered a new wave of speculation among fans. Some users feel that the image, which Rockstar Games have marked, maybe hinting at the setting for Grand Theft Auto 6.
The image appears to be South Beach Miami, with the caption "Who said it would be cold???" written in pink font, which some fans have swiftly linked to Grand Theft Auto Vice City. As a result, fans are fast rallying behind the theory that GTA 6 will take set in Vice City, a fictionalized version of Miami, Florida. Mesones also mentions Rockstar in the post as the final nail in the coffin for fans who believe the next sequel will be set in Vice City.
However, not all fans are convinced since it appears to be both too random to be an accurate preview of the future title's location and too well guarded of a secret to be slipped out through a higher-social up's media post. While the @rockstargames tag may be the most appealing to certain gamers, this does not mean that the following location will be the setting for GTA 6. Instead, other fans have speculated that a new spin-off game, similar to the original Vice City or DLC for GTA Online, could be in the works, with the next match likely taking place in an entirely different location.
Examining seemingly innocuous messages through the prism of theory is a popular internet pastime, with enthusiasts feverishly poring over whatever strand of data they can get their hands on to prove things are moving in one direction or the other. Fans should limit their expectations about where GTA 6 will occur in the absence of an official announcement from the Rockstar Games. At this point, the flood of GTA 6 leaks from Rockstar Games appears to be never-ending, and fans should expect a long wait before any of this information is officially confirmed or refuted by the developer.
