The GTA 6 Trailer Has Already Hit 100 Million Views And Smashed Records On YouTube

More views in 30 hours than GTA 5's debut trailer managed in 12 years!

Grand Theft Auto VI was announced barely 24 hours ago, with a trailer drop that shook the internet by arriving around 15 hours early thanks to an unfortunate leak that prompted Rockstar to get ahead and drop the official thing, and it’s already had a predictably massive impact.

The 91-second promo gave the world its first look at Rockstar’s take on a modern-day Vice City, complete with its typical satirical take on the most rotten sides of society – and Florida. We also got our first look at the game’s protagonist duo, Lucia and her unnamed partner, as they’re on what appears to be an escalating, Bonnie and Clyde-style series of crimes.

Despite being gorgeous, the trailer doesn’t exactly show off anything to do with gameplay or what to expect in terms of features, but that hasn’t stopped eager players and curious onlookers to rack up an astronomical number of views.

In fact the game’s debut trailer has already surpassed that of its predecessor, GTA V, which has taken 12 years to hit the 99 million mark with GTA VI blazing past that number in just over a day – highlighting the sheer cultural impact this thing is going to have when it eventually launches. Even before that huge achievement, at the 24-hour mark the trailer had already smashed MrBeast’s record for the most viewed non-music video in that space of time.

Rockstar also confirmed yesterday that the game will only be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S at launch in 2025, forgoing the shackles of last-gen and also omitting a PC release until presumably a year or so later, in true Rockstar fashion.

In case you’re somehow not one of the 100-million-plus people who’ve witnessed it already, you can find the debut trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI below, as well as a rundown of everything we know about the game so far right here.
