GTA 6 Trailer Debuts Early After Leak, Game Releases In 2025

2 min read

After years of rumor and speculation, the first trailer for Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto VI has debuted. The trailer initially leaked less than a day before its planned debut, which prompted Rockstar to release it early. As rumored, GTA VI is set in Vice City and is scheduled to launch in 2025.

Rockstar Games previously confirmed it was developing the next GTA game, but this is the first time we’re getting any level of detail on what to expect. Based on the trailer, it appears the rumors were also correct that GTA VI will feature two protagonists–a man and a woman. The female character appears to be an ex-con, and we see what looks like some form of in-game social media, as we see a lot of what looks like TikTok videos or Instagram Reels. There’s a Florida Man joke, too, and we see the Florida wetlands in addition to Rockstar’s take on Miami.

Other details include an airboat, an alligator being pulled out a backyard pool (and, later, one entering a store), police bodycam footage, the return of Weazel News, dirt bikes and quads, an apparent convenience story robbery, and lots of neon. You can check out some screenshots from the trailer above.

All of this is more mood-setting than particularly revealing about how this game will be a step up from Grand Theft Auto V, which first released in 2013, other than confirming the name, setting, and release date window. There’s also no mention of what to expect from GTA Online–it’s an open question of whether Rockstar releases a new standalone mode, continues to evolve the existing game, or something else.

The trailer was initially leaked by an account on Twitter/X. As was to be expected, the account was suspended in less than an hour. Rockstar subsequently stated on Twitter, “Our trailer has leaked so please watch the real thing on YouTube.”
