A new easter egg has been discovered in GTA Online after the Cayo Perico update, which has led to an increasing number of rumors that the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto 6 will be set in Vice City.
The Cayo Perico heist update has brought a plethora of new content such as weapons, vehicles, missions and even a hip new nightclub. If you explore Grand Theft Auto V’s first-ever map expansion then you’ll also find a few hidden secrets.
Players received a free jacket for participating in the 100 Billion Heist Challenge in November. This jacket features an easter egg which might be a hint that GTA 6 will take us back to Vice City.
GTA 6 might be set in Vice City
It’s been a long-running rumor that the next installment in Rockstar’s biggest franchise would be set in Vice City. Reddit user Fabry06 took a close look at the “Panther Varsity” jacket and found a reference that fuels this speculation.
The jacket’s front features a purple diamond and the number four. Looking at the back shows a picture of a panther and the “fake Latin” phrase “Hostes Ad Pulverem Ferire” which translates to “Pulverize the enemy.”
If you’ve played GTA Vice City and Vice City Stories, then you might recognize this text, as it could also be found engraved in the exterior of a building that resembles a courthouse in downtown Vice City. It was also found in San Andreas where it was used as a slogan for the Starballs Demolition.
“It might probably be just a reference to El Rubio panther and its enemies or something but at the end it still is a reference to Vice City,” said Fabry06. “Not saying they are directly hinting at GTA VI on Vice City or something but we’ve had some references in recent updates.”
Many other players agreed that this is most likely Rockstar dropping hints at the potential setting for GTA 6. This has credibility when you consider that there have been a few other references to Vice City in the Cayo Perico heist.
Gustavo’s outfit closely resembles the one worn by Gonzalez in both Vice City games. The orange shirt with a floral pattern is a clear nod to the 2002 title, and this coupled with the Latin text on the jacket only makes the connection seem more likely.
“Great find. It could just be a simple reference but why reference Vice City of all places? Could be nothing, but I really feel like rockstar are teasing us here,” one player noted.
“At this point I am 100% convinced gta 6 takes place in vice city. It’s just a matter of what time period(s) and if the game will have another South American or American city.”
“Rockstar has been teasing VI this entire update going to a South American island, the coordinates on the first trailer that goes to that road in Virginia, all the little Vice City references like this one,” another player added.
Keep in mind that these are still just rumors, and nothing has been officially confirmed by Rockstar so far. There has been speculation that the studio has prioritized GTA 6 as its sole focus, so hopefully, we’ll hear something soon. Once we do, we’ll be sure to update you.

Fortnite glitch is flipping players’ screens

Battlefield 6 may not release on PS4 & Xbox One
PS4 and Xbox One owners may be disappointed to hear rumors that the latest Battlefield 6 will potentially be exclusive to the new generation of consoles.
Battlefield fans who are yet to pick up a next-generation console may be disappointed as leaker reveals the developers are considering scrapping release on PS4 & Xbox One as a whole.
Both the PS4 and Xbox One have been difficult to purchase since their respective releases last year. This may be even more devastating for those looking to pick up Battlefield 6 on their last-gen consoles.
Battlefield 6 is set to release this year, with the reveal trailer arriving sometime this summer. Not a lot is known about EA’s latest installment in the series, with some speculating it could be set in the future.
Although there is no concrete evidence, reliable leaker, @_Tom_Henderson_, has not yet heard of Battlefield 6 coming to the now past generation of consoles.
It is possible that PS4 and Xbox One aren’t the focus of EA’s new release, but could still be arriving on the last-gen of consoles upon release.
However, the fact that there has been no news and we are getting ever closer to the reveal and release, leads Tom to believe there is a strong possibility that it won’t be coming to PS4 and Xbox One.
Further, this also leads Tom to believe Battlefield 6 will be releasing on Xbox Game Pass. The loss of players from the older generation of consoles will be a big hit to the day one player count.
However, this loss can be balanced by being introduced on the Xbox Game Pass, leading to a wave of new players on the Xbox Series X.
Whatever happens, it’s safe to say that if you are still in need of the next generation of consoles, you should try your best to get one as soon as possible, especially if you’re a fan of the Battlefield series.

Big map changes and Crypto event details revealed Apex Legends Season 9 leak
Some new Apex Legends leaks point to Olympus going through big changes in Season 9, and Crypto’s heirloom event having a special theme.
A new Apex Legends leak has emerged which hints at some major map changes for Olympus and World’s Edge when Season 9 goes live. It also reveals new details about the Crypto heirloom event too.
Apex Legends has gone through various changes since launch, with each update bringing new content like weapons, heirlooms, and even Legends. The game’s map has also been reformed with new areas like Olympus joining the battle royale.
While Kings Canyon and World’s Edge have been largely altered from their original forms, Olympus has yet to be touched. Now, some new leaks have popped up which suggest that’s all about to change soon.
“Olympus should get the “big map change” at season start,” he tweeted. “World’s Edge should get a small map change mid-season.” So far, it doesn’t seem like anything is planned for Kings Canyon but that could change.
Season 8 completely reformed that map, and left it in a ruined state. So, it’s likely that Respawn might plan some bigger changes for it in future seasons.
Additionally, the data miner also had revealed some new information regarding the upcoming Crypto heirloom event. The season three legend is getting a Jikdo sword as an heirloom, and the event will have a “post-apocalypse” theme.
That event will probably also bring some brand-new skins and other cosmetics for players to equip. With a potential “post-apocalypse” theme, we wouldn’t be too surprised if we ended up seeing some creative new designs.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and are subject to change until Respawn announces something official. That said, we’ll keep checking for further updates, and will inform you once we learn something new.
