Surprise, surprise! Rockstar Games had plans to unveil the first GTA VI trailer tomorrow, December 5, at precisely 2 pm GMT / 9 am ET. But guess what? The GTA VI trailer is unexpectedly out for viewing a day early. Yes, you read that right.
As I was getting ready to doze off, anticipating the grand reveal of the first GTA VI trailer tomorrow, I was hit with a curveball. Leaks are quite common in the gaming industry, and this time was no different.
Someone spilled the beans by leaking the trailer online a whopping 14 hours ahead of schedule. Rockstar Games, not one to be outdone, took to Twitter, stating, “Our trailer has leaked, so please watch the real thing on YouTube.” And there you have it, folks—indulge in the first trailer below.
Thanks to last year’s leak, our suspicions about Jason and Lucia acting as dual protagonists have been confirmed. The trailer appears to be entirely set in the present day. While there were rumors of a possible 1980s setting, we can’t rule out flashbacks entirely. However, the unmistakable backdrop is Vice City, another detail teased by previous leaks.
The game’s title is officially confirmed as GTA VI, putting any speculation about Rockstar dropping the numbering to rest. But here’s the info you’ve all been waiting for—the release window. Unfortunately, it’s what many feared. We’ll need to exercise patience until 2025 for the grand launch of GTA VI. But seriously, take a moment to appreciate those jaw-dropping graphics. If this is just a sneak peek of what’s to come, we’re in for an extraordinary gaming experience that’ll undoubtedly be worth the wait.
