That said, the show’s information indicates that “Project Americas,” as it’s said to be called internally, signifies another return to the region that a previous “GTA” game was set in.

Just as 2013’s “Grand Theft Auto V” revisited, and expanded upon, the California of 2004 release “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City,” “Grand Theft Auto VI” could represent a new opportunity to explore Rockstar’s simulation and satire of Miami (following “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City” in 2004).

It’s not known whether “GTA VI” would be set in Vice City, nor whether it would occupy the same 1980s time period, but it is now thought that “Project Americas” will also allow players to travel to and from South America (no further specifics given).

As well as timescale and locations, The Know reported that a female protagonist was under consideration. Whether that be a solo lead or one of several avatars playable throughout a campaign storyline is not known.

Neither was there any indication of how “Grand Theft Auto Online,” the multiplayer component of “Grand Theft Auto V” which so far has not been separated from its parent, would fit into the “Project Americas” scheme.
