The wait is almost over. Today, Rockstar Games posted word on its X (formerly Twitter) account, that the next game in its mega-popular Grand Theft Auto franchise, which will likely be titled Grand Theft Auto VI, will debut its first trailer on Tuesday, December 5 at 9 am Eastern time (6 am Pacific time).



The teaser image for the trailer announcement shows silhouettes of palm trees and seagulls, which would seem to confirm that GTA VI will be making a return to the Miami-inspired Vice City setting.

Rockstar Games first announced back in early November it would drop the trailer for the next GTA game in early December. The debut of the trailer also times nicely with the 25th anniversary of the founding of Rockstar games in December 1998. However, the December 5 release date does mean Rockstar wanted to debut the trailer on its own, and not as part of the 2023 Game Awards, which will happen two days later on December 7.

Of course, people will be speculating on what will be shown in the trailer from now until Tuesday morning. Will we see returning characters from previous GTA games? What will the visuals be like? What new features will be shown?

Most importantly, will we get a release time frame for GTA VI as part of the trailer? Many people are hoping the game will be released sometime before the end of 2024. However, Rockstar does have a reputation of delaying game release if it feels the title is not yet ready for prime time.

In any case, you can bet the internet might melt down for a little while on Tuesday morning when the GTA VI trailer does debut. It's certainly going to be one of the most talked about game trailers of 2023.

Less than a week ago, Rockstar hyped up the whole internet with a simple announcement: Grand Theft Auto is officially coming back and the first trailer is dropping on December 5. Unfortunately for Rockstar, the reveal trailer somehow leaked onto social media just an hour ago. Fortunately for fans though, the studio decided to pull the trigger early and the official debut trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI has been published. Catch it below.

Rockstar simply said "Our trailer has leaked so please watch the real thing on YouTube" before publishing the trailer, taking the wind out of those who were trying to spread the leaked video.

Just as multiple leaks had revealed for years now, Rockstar is taking players back to the fictional vistas of Vice City for this entry. It has been over 20 years since Grand Theft Auto: Vice City released, and judging by what the studio showed off in its trailer today, the upgrades to the city in GTA VI will be even larger than what San Andreas received in GTA V.

While not exactly gameplay, this looks to be in-engine rendered footage of GTA VI, showing off a major leap in visuals over what the studio achieved with Red Dead Redemption 2 in 2018. Dual protagonists seems to be confirmed now too, possibly making way for a Bonnie and Clyde-style storyline.

If Rockstar manages to evade delays, Grand Theft Auto VI will be launching sometime in 2025. Platforms have not been announced yet, but it's safe to assume that Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles will be getting it on day one. A PC version should be incoming too, but going by previous releases of Rockstar, it may not receive a simultaneous launch alongside the current-gen consoles.
