Is GTA 6 set in Vice City? Here's what you need to know about GTA 6's setting.

We knew it was real. Heck, we knew it was just a few hours away. But it seems like Grand Theft Auto VI is finally here, and it’s actually happening for real. We just got our first official glimpse of the title, thanks to Rockstar Games.

When it dropped unexpectedly, the trailer confirmed many small details we have seen over the past few years, such as the first female protagonist, Lucia, returning vehicles, and much more. The trailer also reveals the launch date, or more like the launch year of the game as well.

However, some gamers wonder, is GTA 6 set in Vice City? In this article, we will reveal everything about GTA 6’s city setting. 

Is GTA 6 Set in Vice City?

Short Answer: Yes! Fans of the franchise will be thrilled to know that Grand Theft Auto is finally returning to Vice City after 18 years since it was last seen in 2006’s Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. 

The official trailer by Rockstar Games opens up with one of the game’s two main characters, Lucia, in prison uniform, probably at a parole interview, and ends with her and a male partner holding the store. We get some beautiful shorts of the fictionalized version of Miami. In between, we get shorts of illegal Floridian antics involving super-fast cars, strip clubs, alligators, and much more. Switching between beaches and neon signage, it paints a picture of Vice City’s partying scene.

There’s no doubt that modern Vice City looks incredible with next-gen graphics in the briefly glimpsed 91-second trailer. Vice City takes elements from Scarface, but we’re yet to see what cultural touchstones this new title of the franchise will reach in the midst of its release. 

Of course, this isn’t the first glimpse of Vice City in Grand Theft Auto 6 for many of us. Unfortunately, around 50 minutes of work-in-progress gameplay footage was leaked online last year, which already confirmed that GTA 6 will be set in Vice City. 

The game is currently set for a release in 2025 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X. To say that GTA 6 has mighty shoes to fill for Rockstar would be an understatement. 

And that’s everything you need to know about GTA 6’s city location. Be sure to follow us as we’ll bring you the latest Grand Theft Auto 6 updates.
