A notable leaker has revealed some new concept art, showcasing the updated Vice City map that’s rumored to be in Rockstar’s highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto 6.

After GTA V took the world by storm by selling 140 million copies globally, excitement started brewing for the sixth entry in Rockstar’s popular game series. One of the biggest points of speculation is the new map.

A ‘leaked’ Vice City map resurfaced a while back, and this led to some fans comparing its size with Los Santos. Now, one leaker has drawn some concept art for the game, showcasing the rumored map.

Tom Henderson recently revealed that GTA 6 may not release for another five years. On July 5, 2021, the notable leaker worked on a sketch during a live stream on his YouTube channel.

It featured a woman holding an Assault Rifle next to a sports car and some palm trees that seem to confirm the Vice City setting. The background showed fighter jets, buildings of varying sizes, and a male character flying around with a jetpack.

When the stream ended, he changed the title to ‘”Drawing GTA VI (GTA 6).” You can watch the time lapse of the sketch below.

While the sketch was being drawn, there was a ton of speculation about what game Henderson was showcasing. Some fans assumed it was Bloodborne-related until he drew a GTA 6 logo on the top left.

The character holding the AR in front of the car might fuel rumors that GTA 6 will feature a female protagonist. Fans wondered if this was leaked art or just fan drawing, but Tom tweeted that it was concept art.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this hasn’t been officially verified by Rockstar, so take this with a grain of salt. However, this does seem to be in line with previous leaks. Once we learn of any new details, we’ll be sure to update you.
