Grand Theft Auto VI should take place in Vice City, if we believe the affirmations of a synthwave artist.
Vector Hold – from her real name Pete Rice – suggested that players would come back in the fictitious city of Miami, which was the decor of the entrance in 2002 in the Rockstar franchise acclaimed by critics.
Rice visited his personal Twitter account on August 5, to tease the return of Vice City, but later removed his tweet as the rumor circulated. Rice’s Tweet screenshots have since been uploaded to IMGUR and sub-reddit game leaks after the fans move quickly to capture evidence before they disappear.
In parallel with this potential revelation, RICE also stated that his colleagues Synthwave artists – a gender that took off in the 1980s – had been “struck” by the music clearance staff for a “radio station”. The exact meaning of these comments is unclear, but the previous GTA games had integrated radio stations with play with licensed music. It can therefore be assumed that Rice and other synthwave musicians have been contacted about their potential use in GTA VI.
The rumors of GTA VI have made the turn online since mid-April. Reporting earlier this year suggested that the next game of the series was “halfway” of development, while another report in May referred to possible exit date 2023.
GTA V was the last franchise initially released in September 2013. In August 2020, the open-world action-adventure game sold to 135 million copies – making it the second best-selling game All times – on all platforms.
The title of San Andreas also saw the arrival of GTA Online, the online multiplayer mode of the series, which has become one of the most popular multiplayer games of all times and the most profitable income source of Rockstar Thanks to its microtransactions.
