New Trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI Just Launched by Rockstar

Rockstar has released the trailer of Grand Theft Auto VI, the next game in the blockbuster video game franchise a day earlier than expected. It’s been a decade since Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto V. While fans have been more than able to keep themselves busy with GTA Online and a few re-releases, they’ve been waiting patiently (or impatiently) for more single-player action. The wait’s now much shorter as Rockstar has revealed the first official look at the game’s debut trailer. As indicated by a recent teaser image and various rumors, GTA VI will be set in Leonida, Rockstar’s take on Florida, and largely centered on Vice City, the series’ stand in for Miami. Given that the trailer features a ton of Instagram-style live streaming, GTA VI seems to be a contemporary game, rather than one set in the ’80s like 2002’s Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. It also appears that the game will have a playable female character for the first time in the modern incarnation of the franchise, just as the rumors predicted. Other highlights of the trailer include Florida’s swampy Everglades National Park, an airboat, some wildlife and, of course, a strip club. A major leak last year saw 90 videos of a GTA VI test build emerge online. The clips indicated that the game would mark a return to Vice City and that there’d be two playable characters. GTA VI will be released in 2025.
