GTA V vs San Andreas Map

How big is the GTA V map really going to be?

EDIT [18/9/2013]: For your viewing pleasure, here is a video that further illustrates the enormous scale of the GTA V map:

Yesterday the GTA V map was leaked, the source supposedly being a copy of the game’s official strategy guide. The map shows an enormous rural area surrounding the already expansive urban area to the south, and depicts many familiar place names such as Vespucci Beach and Vinewood.

One user on Reddit measured the scales of both maps in pixels (using Photoshop), then used a percentage calculation to accurately resize the GTA: San Andreas map to the scale of the leaked GTA V map. This is the result of that calculation next to the original, unaltered map:

Other attempts to work out the size of the map have been attempted with varying success and accuracy. There is one fact, however, that we can all be fairly certain of: this game will be big. Very big indeed.

GTA V will be released worldwide on 17th September 2013.

Are you serious!? That looks huge..... surely this is some sort of joke.!?!

I do hope you're right though..... I'm going to spend hours roaming around and exploring new things.

No Las Venturas/San Fierro? But loads of countryside...

The map will be entirely different. We've come a long way since 2004 so you can't expect everything to be the same.

Yeah, I just appreciate it when new versions of maps stay true to the original version. Hopefully there will be some nice San Andreas references in-game though. Not long to find out now.
