Grand Theft Auto VI, also known as GTA 6, is almost here with us and the gaming community has been vibrant in its discussions. Rockstar Games recently released the game’s official trailer and it is everything that we hoped it would be. From fast cars to reckless gunplay and handfuls of ill-gotten cash, the game is meatier than its previously edition.
GTA 6 is set to be released on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Unfortunately, the PC release date remains a mystery. GTA 5 released on PC about 18 months after it came out on PS3 and Xbox 360, which could possibly indicate that PC gamers might have to wait for some time before playing the game. Without further ado, here is everything we have gathered about Grand Theft Auto 6 as of now.
GTA 6 Trailer
Rockstar Games surprised fans by releasing the first trailer of GTA VI on December 5, a day earlier than the scheduled date. This is because it appeared online elsewhere due to a leak, a report which the game’s developers confirmed on X, formerly Twitter.
The trailer confirms many little details that have slowly come out about the game over the last two years. With a closer look at the new protagonists, settings, vehicles and many more, there’s certainly a lot to unpack already in this game. A TikTok or Instagram Reels-style social network is heavily featured in the trailer.
GTA VI trailer has caused a lot of buzz among gamers sparking widespread speculation about the exact release date.
Rockstar confirmed that GTA 6 release date is set for 2025. The news arrived as part of the reveal trailer, noting that Grand Theft Auto 6 is set to release TBC 2025. While Rockstar has kept the specific date shrouded in mystery, many gamers are hoping that the game will be launched early, potentially in February or March 2025.
Where Is GTA 6 Setting/ Location
Rockstar Games has confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 6 is set in Leonida, a fictional state that includes Vice City and other areas. Vice City had been rumored to be the game’s setting six years before the announcement and a good number of gamers will be happy with the news. GTA 6 is taking us back to Vice City, but this new release is set to take place in what appears to be a modern day setting.
A full-fledged map of the game has not been revealed at the time of this writing, but Rockstar has confirmed the game’s setting. From sun-soaked beaches to the bustling urban districts, Rockstar Games embraces not only the vibrant culture of Miami but also the broader nuances of Florida in GTA VI.
Grand Theft Auto 6 will be out soon and we have already had a glimpse at the characters, thanks to the trailer released on December 5. The most notable of them are the alleged male protagonist Jason, and the confirmed female protagonist Lucia.
Lucia narrates over the trailer, supposedly talking to the possible male protagonist, who is seen at the end of the one minute and 31 seconds long clip. Although this is the first official look at the two, they were heavily featured in last year’s leaked footage clips.
Besides Jason and Lucia, few other characters can also be seen in the title’s debut trailer, but not in detail. The other characters according to Sportskeeda include Dale, Chester, Danny, Iris, Shanese, Vicky, Dre, Sam, Kai, Wyman, Billy, Tit, Boobie, Zach and RB Shaw
Grand Theft Auto 6 is expected to feature the game’s tried-and-true formula of jacking cars, escaping from the authorities and committing robberies. All this is evident on the trailer, which has so far garnered over 100 million views on YouTube.
Well, that’s everything we know as far as GTA 6 is concerned. If you’re wondering why the game is taking long to come out, it’s simply because of the success of GTA 5 and GTA Online. Rockstar Games previously cited the unprecedented longevity of GTA 5, which indicates how the game has been successful over the past decade.
