As per the YouTuber, this letter represents Rockstar Games leaving behind GTA V’s California-theme setting of Los Santos and switching to the Miami-inspired setting of Vice City. This doesn’t come as a surprise, as the developers in the past teased future titles within earlier games. A screenshot of the ‘sixth instalment’ of the GTA franchise appeared on the internet that showed a player flying somewhat a cropduster aircraft over Vice City.

That aside, the GTA 6 release date is expected to be sometime in 2025. Rumours in the past have suggested that the game will include a male protagonist and have a chaptered story like Red Dead Redemption 2. An earlier Frieden leak said that the next GTA entry would feature four main characters – two police and two gang members. But these rumours still seem far-reaching for now. However, what’s clear is that the upcoming GTA 6 will be a PS5 and Xbox Series X release, given the upcoming GTA 5 next-gen is slotted for the console and PC.
