The GTA VI teaser has arrived


The first trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI was released on X, formerly known as Twitter, by an account that has since been suspended, just before Rockstar was set to unveil it. Rockstar responded quickly, formally publishing the teaser on its YouTube site, even though the official debut was set for Tuesday, December 5th at 9 AM ET.

The teaser verifies a number of details that have been slowly making their way public over the last two years regarding Grand Theft Auto VI, such as the game’s Vice City setting and the debut of the first female protagonist with narrative elements reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde. The trailer, which stated a 2025 release date, was followed on Monday by a press release from Rockstar, which stated that the game would be available on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S that same year. After ten years of production, the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI might have just shown the Roman numeral for six, causing debates and conjecture to go on forever. Fortunately, Vice City—a fictitious version of Miami—serves as the backdrop for the video, which offers glimpses of GTA’s signature themes, including fast automobiles, wild gunfights, mountains of illicit money, and classic American hedonism.

The teaser introduces Lucia, the main character, as a woman initially seen wearing a jail jumpsuit. After her alleged release from prison, Lucia seems destined to go on a criminal adventure with her boyfriend.

The press release also has a very brief description of the game itself. “Grand Theft Auto VI heads to the state of Leonida, home to the neon-soaked streets of Vice City and beyond in the biggest, most immersive evolution of the Grand Theft Auto series yet,” Rockstar says.

There have been a lot of leaks since GTA VI was revealed. A UK teenager was previously identified as the author of the leak from the previous year, which released ninety films from the game’s development stage. In addition, a TikTok video that claimed to have game footage that had been leaked and was allegedly obtained by a child of a Rockstar employee surfaced this week. These TikTok videos, which are still available on the platform as of this writing, feature a computer screen with wide-angle views of the game’s environment.
