In an Xpost, user @s1nick shared a snapshot of a video game map. Alongside the image, the user wrote, “A rockstar employee on 4chan just leaked this👀 he says it's the gta 6 map. Idk if this is true but it seems very legit to me…”.

It goes against the other renders created by the GTA 6 community which feature one single island. Instead, this new GTA 6 map features three distinct islands, the largest of which is reported to be the state of Leonida, or as it is more popularly known, Vice City.

While the information should be taken with a pinch of salt since it hasn't come from an official source, it only adds to the speculation about the world of GTA 6.
