Rockstar Games finally debuted the trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI moments

Rockstar Games finally debuted the trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI moments after it was leaked on social media.

The clip, which you can view below, also indicates that the game will be released in 2025, under the title Grand Theft Auto VI for the time being. There was no mention of a release date.

The teaser introduces us to the game's female heroine, a first for the franchise. Lucia is her name, and she starts her experience in prison - "bad luck, I guess," she adds.

The teaser also reveals that the game is set in Vice City, as seen by the large signs - not a major surprise for fans of the franchise, but intriguing nonetheless. In addition to abundance of crime video, we see traces of TikTok and live streaming, implying that social media will play a role in the game.

It all takes place with Tom Petty's "Love Is a Long Road" playing in the background, which fits with the several car-related crimes we see. And, in line with the Florida setting, an alligator appears in an unexpected area.

The film concludes with more of Lucia and a male character who appear to be lovers and criminal collaborators. "The only way we're going to get through this is if we stick together and work as a team," Lucia says at one point.

Rockstar stated in November that the trailer will be released in "early December," putting the video gaming industry in suspense. Confirmation came on December 1 when Rockstar said that the trailer will be released the following day, December 5, however Rockstar definitely postponed its release after the leak.

Fans have been clamoring about GTA 6 since the release of GTA 5, which was hailed as a "masterpiece" by IGN in our review.

The first reference occurred in 2020, when reports arose that Rockstar was aiming to improve working conditions at its studios, and the formal announcement that GTA 6 development was "well underway" in 2022.

Last year wasn't all that great for Rockstar, as GTA 6 production video was released in a large data breach at the company, leading to the arrest of a British teenager.

Rockstar has not spoken subsequently, however publisher Take-Two Interactive hinted in May 2023 that the series' very lucrative launch will result in massive financial profits between April 2024 and March 2025.
