Some exciting gameplay from GTA VI leaked just a few days ago. Rockstar Games verified the leak, which revealed Vice City as the setting and disclosed that both male and female players would play as the game’s characters. However, some sharp-eyed watchers detected something about GTA Online. They discovered an art asset that seemed to be extremely recognizable.
Those who saw the leaked video observed a Vice City Metro sticker in the Grand Theft Auto Online Arena War update, which was released some time ago.
Although this is intriguing, it is not unusual for developers to reuse assets, particularly when the artwork has not been altered much. Most of the time, reusing assets can cut down on development time, and it’s not restricted to video games. Many individuals recognize the “Pixar Easter Eggs” inculcated throughout the studio’s works.
In addition, it is not unusual for Rockstar to include Easter eggs in their games related to other games in the same series or distinct titles. Developers may sometimes add random content to build attraction, as when Bigfoot was included in Grand Theft Auto V. “Mount Chiliad Mystery” is the name of another amusing Easter egg. When it was discovered, many believed it indicated a jetpack in Grand Theft Auto V, but there wasn’t; eventually, a jetpack ultimately surfaced in a GTA Online mission.
It’s an intriguing addition, but it’s not the only allusion to Vice City in GTA V or GTA Online. There is a complete article on the Grand Theft Auto fan wiki about Easter eggs in Vice City. However, this metro logo was not shown until GTA Online, and it has now been seen in the illegal leak; thus, users had evidence Vice City would be featured in GTA VI, provided they paid attention and made the connection.
