10 Cities We Want to See in GTA 6

1 of 11

If you're following the much-anticipated release of the sixth installment in the Grand Theft Auto franchise, then you know there's a lot of talk about the game's next city take over. 

Liberty City, San Andreas, and Vice City are familiar GTA turf but, many gamer's are hoping Rockstar has plans to show them some new scenery. Hoaxes have already been popped up claiming the city of Chicago as the confirmed spot along with speculation that the sixth game will return back to Miami-based Vice City. No one knows for sure, yet.

What we do know, however, is that everyone is talking about what city they'd like to see Grand Theft Auto invade and there are a lot. So, we're here to join the GTA city wishlist debate. While GTA is often American-centric, here are ten cities from states and around the world that we want to see GTA 6 take place in. 

Chicago, Illinois

Chicago is a no-brainer as a possible location for GTA 6. If Rockstar is seeking to further capitalize on the crime sprees that are regularly featured in their game, why not go to one of the well-known crime cities? There's plenty that they can be inspired by in GTA 6: Chicago.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rockstar has experience with crafting the beautiful setting of Rio de Janeiro from their Max Payne 3 title and the Brazilian city may be overdue for a revisit. Grand Theft Auto 6: Brazil would be the perfect game for such a visitation. Not only that, Rio de Janeiro is very similar to GTA 5's Los Santos which makes it even more ideal in terms of open world development. 


Seattle, Washington

Honestly, it is a surprise that Seattle has yet to be used in the GTA franchise. This iconic city is a perfect blend of urban and rural, something that we've seen in GTA previously so it only makes sense that they'd want to continue the tradition in GTA 6.

London, England

Much like Rio, London deserves another visitation. Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 had a large amount of success back in 1999 so, just imagine what it could be like now.


Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is a strange mirror of Western culture with a mix of Japanese history and modern culture that would make it gorgeous and easily adaptable to the GTA style. Aside from the visuals that could come out of Tokyo being the newest setting, it would be awesome to see Rockstar incorporate the Yakuza into their story-lines.

Boston, Massachusetts 

Surely there would be no argument about moving back to the East Coast this time around. We've already seen Liberty City, so why not move on down to Boston? The location will allow Rockstar to explore weather like snow (Boston gets more than enough of it). The possibility of snow-related vehicles and even missions certainly makes the city worth it alone.


Hong Kong, China

Hong Kong as a city has a very distinct atmosphere and mixed with GTA's distinct style of gaming, it would make an ideal setting for the sixth installment. We've seen games like Sleeping Dogs take place in the city so it would be interesting to see Rockstar's take on the city compared to that of Square Enix's.

Washington, D.C.

D.C. might be a little small for GTA's typical open world format but still it would make a great addition. It can even open up the possibility of multiple cities being used in one game, something I think no fan would be too bothered by. Plus, D.C.'s landmarks alone could be awesome to see Rockstar incorporate into a story. 


Las Vegas, Nevada

Gambling just seems like it would go hand in hand with GTA 6, so Sin City makes all the sense in the world as the next location. Just imagine all the crazy things that the characters can and will get into. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Just imagine a video game version of Fear and Loathing.

Paris, France

Despite it's popularity, we don't regularly see Paris used as backdrop in games so, it would be nice to get a change of scenery. While Paris doesn't have the towering buildings GTA gamers are used to, it does have a large system of underground tunnels that could prove to be an interesting addition if Rockstar chooses to go this route.
