NOTE: Everything in this thread is of course pure speculation. The Grand Theft Auto series probably had the most "fake leaks" of any game series. This is why all "leaks" should be taken with a grain of salt.

The Game
Recently multiple leaks have confirmed Vice City (Miami) will be inside the game.
This information was made public through a public pastebin that got deleted by Rockstar Games. (this is assumed, paste was created by a guest account with no expiration date, and now it's gone)
GTA 6 is going to feature multiple big cities which players can travel across.

In the title which will make you a kind of a drug lord. You will start as a small time guy in Liberty City doing odd chores and small-time thefts and eventually work your way to Vice City where you will join a famous gang. You will be tasked to look after business in liberty city until you are brought back to Vice City and soon become the drug lord.

Rockstar Games has an idea about when they want to release the game but the corporates want to analyze the sales of PS5 and the Xbox 2. This game cant come [out] for ps4 because of memory restrictions. We have 2 major cities along with a vast stretch of highways and Blaine County like countrysides in the middle of it all. There will also be some kind of timed era between the missions with flashbacks.

Certain shops will sell different types of items in different eras. RDR2 type stranger dialogues will be implemented.

There are big plans in online and with major content like newer towns. They are working closely with Microsoft and Sony on cloud gaming which will help them enable online to be a continuous process.

More recently Last year in March The Know (these guys have been known to be correct 50% of times) have shared some details that they say comes from a Rockstar Games employee.
  • Development title is "PROJECT AMERICAS"
  • Game is set in South America AND Vice City

Release Date

Most sources agree that Rockstar is going to release these on next gen consoles, meaning PlayStation 5 and Xbox Two.
Timewise this would mean a release date in 2021/2022.

Man, I know I'm derailing this thread, but... That GlassDoor review is the reason I never tried to go into game development...
As in, I would really want to, and would love to work on a massive game like GTA, but those work environments are (supposedly) pure poison.
Long hours, awful exec's, horrible users,... It's gotta suck.

Yeah they're probably the worst companies to work for, so much time pressure...
