GTA Online players in dire need of a change of scenery may have their wish granted, judging by a purported map expansion to Liberty City.
Since the introduction of GTA Online with the release of GTA 5, players have been limited to the LA parody city of Los Santos and its San Andreas suburbs. That could finally change.
With GTA Online now offering the controversial GTA+ rewards program for next-gen users, it seems like there could be more to this service than previously thought if Rockstar has something big up its sleeve.
According to Rockstar Games insider Matheusvictor, players should pack their bags for a summer vacation as a future update draws closer.
Insider says the map expansion is coming from GTA Online
In a post on Twitter, the leaker said that his sources told him that a very big update for GTA was in the works.
“Latest Information I [got] According to sources, there is a BIG summer update coming for GTA Online and we will see good connections between them…map expansion!” he said.
Where the map expansion will take us, the insider didn’t say, but did add Statue of Liberty emojis and a pair of sunglasses.
Updated information received from Fonts received a GRANDE update for some version of GTA Online and you will receive more information… map expansion!

While the Statue of Liberty is in New York, there is a parody version in Liberty City called the Statue of Happiness – GTA’s version of the Big Apple.
Interestingly, a number of GTA 6 rumors have claimed that the upcoming game’s campaign will see a return to Liberty and Vice City, regardless of whether they are linked to this GTA Online expansion or not.
As always, take these rumors with a grain of salt, but with spring on the way and summer soon to follow, it won’t be long before we find out if this leak is real and players can return to Liberty City.
