Rockstar to map ALL of America for Grand Theft Auto 6?

April 22nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


Bear with us on this one folks, but it seems that the next Grand Theft Auto game is set to be Rockstar’s biggest one yet… 

Tweaktown are reporting that the entire United States of America is set to be mapped out for players to cause havoc around, a project which would see the game released in 2020.  While it sounds absurd, after all it took the developers the same amount of time to bring us GTA V which contains a map FAR smaller than this new idea, this has been done before by Ubisoft with The Crew.


The sheer size of the proposed map would mean long loading times while driving from one city to the next may prove to be very boring for players.  As for the hardware requirements, theres nothing that would support the size of the map in the current gen consoles.  Tweaktown are suggesting that it may have to be done via a streaming service but for now take this one with a major pinch of salt.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
