If you were lucky enough to take a look at the new Grand Theft Auto V map blueprint that landed online in the last couple of days, then you actually saw the real GTA V map with details on size and locations. We now can confirm that the map was the real thing thanks to Rockstar Games sending out takedown notices for those that uploaded the map online.
We noticed the GTA V map in a video on YouTube, on the popular N4g gaming portal and also uploaded to image hosting service IMGUR. Product Reviews didn’t upload this photo as we know Rockstar would only want it taken down, so if you managed to take a look then you know you saw the real thing.
You can still catch a glimpse of the image either by searching Google Images or looking on this N4G page titled “Grand Theft Auto 5 Map Leaked”, although we wouldn’t expect that page to stay online for much longer.
Did you manage to see the real GTA V Map before it was taken down? Any references to the blueprint on IMGUR have a message stating the image requested does not exist anymore. It isn’t long before the game reaches its release date, so feel free to track with our countdown in an earlier article.
You can also see a message on Twitter from a website that were told to remove the GTA V map picture. GTA-Xtreme received an email from Rockstar Games telling them to remove all map leaks on both their website and social networks.
Only a week to go Product Reviews readers and then you can see the full map up close when your copy of the game arrives. In case you missed it, take a look at an actual GTA V Bravado Banshee thanks to official images shared by Rockstar Games.
