During the trailer there is a scene featuring various characters riding on dirt bikes and ATVs, and in the background, a Haiti flag can seemingly be seen. Some Grand Theft Auto fans have taken this as a deliberate hint that players will be going to Haiti at some point during the game. And this is possible, but there's also a more simpler explanation.
While this explanation is on the table, it's worth noting that there's a neighborhood in Miami called Little Haiti. In other words, this may be Vice City's fictional take on this neighborhood. It's also possible the flag in the background is not the Haitian flag, but something else.

Unfortunately, right now, all we have is speculation. It wouldn't be surprising if the events of the game took places to an international location considering Red Dead Redemption 2 does this and considering the Caribbean is right there begging to be explored. That said, right now, there is not enough here to boldly make any claims. Further, if the game does take players abroad, there is a decent chance Rockstar Games will not reveal it before the game's release, as they kept this part of Red Dead Redemption 2 a secret.
Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to release sometime in 2025 via the PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.
