Rockstar Games has stated that Grand Theft Auto 6 will be set in Leonida, a state that is effectively the franchise’s version of Florida, expanding the franchise’s reach far beyond Vice City.
Six years before the game’s release, Vice City was speculated to appear in Grand Theft Auto. After all, with Grand Theft Auto 4 attacking Liberty City and Grand Theft Auto 5 tackling San Andreas, Vice City looked like an obvious next step.
With its record-breaking premiere trailer, Grand Theft Auto 6 revealed Vice City as one of its fundamental settings. The clip for Grand Theft Auto 6 also confirmed the game’s playable characters, graphics enhancements, alligators, automobiles, and how Vice City would be improved.
However, fans should be aware that Vice City is only a tiny part of the larger Grand Theft Auto 6 territory since the game is set in Leonida.
At the time of writing, no full-fledged Grand Theft Auto 6 map has been shown, but Rockstar has stated that the game is set in Leonida, a fictitious state that comprises Vice City and other regions.
The official description provided by Rockstar is as follows: “Grand Theft Auto 6 heads to the state of Leonida, home to the neon-soaked streets of Vice City and beyond in the biggest, most immersive evolution of the Grand Theft Auto series yet.”
It’s unclear how much more Leonida fans will be able to explore, but additional information should become available in the run-up to the game’s final release in 2025.
One of the most critical details for Grand Theft Auto 6 was revealed at the very end of the unveiling trailer. While there was some anticipation that the open-world criminal game might be released in 2024, it has officially been confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 6 will be released sometime in 2025.
Time will tell if Rockstar fulfills that deadline or whether the game’s release date is pushed back, but for the time being, fans may look forward to 2025 as the year of GTA 6.

Meanwhile, the same description that revealed Grand Theft Auto 6’s setting to be Leonida rather than Vice City also disclosed that the game is presently aiming for a debut on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
This appears to indicate that Grand Theft Auto 6 will bypass PC when it is initially launched, which is typical of Rockstar’s titles. It’s unclear how long fans will have to wait for the eventual Grand Theft Auto 6 PC adaptation, but Rockstar’s prior titles indicate that it will take at least a year.
