Update: Thanks to a huge leak this morning, Rockstar has officially let the first ever trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI loose early, also confirming that the game will be arriving sometime in 2025 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S (no mention of PC as of yet).
Take a look:
The trailer confirms a lot of what we’ve already heard in rumours and other leaks, giving us a modern day “Bonnie and Clyde” style story set in Vice City and featuring both a male and female protagonist, led by Lucia with her partner yet to be named but previously rumoured to be “Jason.”
In classic Rockstar style, it looks to be parodying a lot of the trends of the era, especially influencer culture. Weazel News is back, of course.
Rockstar has also confirmed that the game will release on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, so no last-gen release. A PC release date hasn’t been mentioned.
“Grand Theft Auto VI continues our efforts to push the limits of what’s possible in highly immersive, story-driven open-world experiences,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We’re thrilled to be able to share this new vision with players everywhere.”
“Grand Theft Auto VI heads to the state of Leonida, home to the neon-soaked streets of Vice City and beyond in the biggest, most immersive evolution of the Grand Theft Auto series yet.”
Original Story: The Rockstar Games X account has shared a very simple post, letting fans know that “Trailer 1” is coming this week, getting the jump on Geoff Keighley’s The Game Awards by a few days. Here’s when it’s happening in local, Australian time zones:
The trailer date and time is also accompanied by a new visual that definitely echoes a lot of what we’ve seen or heard about the game through unofficial channels over the months and years that it could be a return to Vice City, most evident in the huge in-development gameplay leaked that rocked the internet in September last year.
That leaked footage showed a female, Latina protagonist who appeared to be named Lucia along with a male sidekick named Jason, with the pair engaging in armed robberies among other things, supporting a widely-held belief online being that the game will feature a Bonnie and Clyde-esque story of a duo desperately turning to a series of escalating crimes.
We don’t actually know yet if the game will be called “Grand Theft Auto VI” or perhaps land a geographical subtitle like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City or Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but we’re sure to find out next week with this reveal.
We’ll be sure to update you when this first trailer drops and we know more.
