An official announcement of GTA 6 is still pending. And while there are rumors and alleged leaks on Vice City nailed down as a setting, the actual setting of Grand Theft Auto 6 is still in the stars.
After Rockstar recently fueled speculation about a return to Vice City and the 80s, one of them is now causing a stir Snickers advertising for excitement in the fan community. But what's behind it?
How a Snickers advertisement upset GTA fans
A few days ago, when an advertisement for the Snickers candy bar appeared on the net, fans were confused: With neon colors, a similar writing style of the GTA logo and the comic-esque hand
Accordingly, fans on Reddit began to discuss whether Snickers work with Rockstar and the advertising Confirm Vice City as location for GTA 6 would.
The user TRMTankEngine even went so far as to ask the official Snickers Twitter account whether the ad would be a fake. The Twitter account confirmed to him that the GTA: Vice City style Snickers advertising is definitely real and be official.
Why Snickers has not confirmed Vice City for GTA 6
Does Snickers actually confirm Vice City as a setting for GTA 6? Not at all. In the corresponding Reddit thread, other users already argued against the speculation and used a Snickers advertisement in the style of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim as a concrete counterexample.
Both the GTA and Skyrim advertisements from the candy bar manufacturer are clearly reminiscent of the video game templates, but then use but not the official assets and fonts. Probably because they simply do not have the rights to do so and want to avoid being sued.

And if you look at the comments on Reddit and Co., it definitely worked – regardless of whether you take the speculation as full or as nonsense.
