UPDATE: An official press release from RockStar has been provided which confirms that the game will only be released on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The game will not launch on the PS4, Xbox One or PC.

However, it should be noted that Rockstar traditionally provided PC versions of GTA titles, post-launch.

"Grand Theft Auto VI continues our efforts to push the limits of what’s possible in highly immersive, story-driven open-world experiences,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games in the press release. “We’re thrilled to be able to share this new vision with players everywhere.

A brief synopsis for the title reads, "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."

Original story follows below.

The first trailer for Grand Theft Auto 6 was supposed to be released tomorrow, but as low-resolution leaks began to circulate, Rockstar decided that the best approach would be to simply release the official trailer today.

Check out the trailer below, which confirms a 2025 release date.


Since Grand Theft Auto (1997), the first game in the series, players have come a long way. In that 2D adventure, players wrought havoc across three fictional cities: Liberty City (modeled after New York), San Andreas (modeled after San Francisco), and Vice City (based on Miami).

A decade after the release of Grand Theft Auto V, and almost 25 years after Rockstar was founded, comes GTA 6. Although Rockstar has been reticent to divulge anything on GTA 6, the game's development has reportedly been happening since 2014.

Granted, Rockstar Games has had several workplace culture scandals over the years, which could have contributed to the length of time it took for Grand Theft Auto VI to arrive. The studio put itself through "100-hour work weeks" to achieve the deadline for the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, which caused criticism for the corporation. Rockstar co-founder and VP of Creativity Dan Houser promised that no overtime will be needed for GTA VI as a result.

The business was also breached in late 2022, and those who leaked information on GTA 6 managed to obtain a vast amount of information.

Based on the first trailer, it seems the leaks were true as the leakers revealed that the game would:

  • have a playable female protagonist
  • the game would be set in modern day Vice City
  • the game would be adopting a pseudo live service model with periodic updates provided to give gamers new missions and cities

The game is set to feature 2 protagonist, Jason and Lucia, a modern day homage to Bonnie and Clyde.  The trailer also seems to indicate that the game will feature BBLs and social media.

Grand Theft Auto has become one of the most influential and controversial video game franchises of all time, thanks to its blend of dark comedy, social satire, and over-the-top action. It will be intriguing to see where Rockstar takes the series next, but one thing is certain: it will be as bold and provocative as it has always been.

Stay tuned for future coverage as we look towards recieving official updates and an official release date in the coming weeks and months.

This....This is the one Danielson. Just dont Cyberpunk this bad boy
EgoEgor - 12/4/2023, 9:29 PM
@HammerLegFoot - I enjoyed Cyberpunk a year later, but Cyberpunk screwed up trying to out do Rockstar.
JustAChillDude - 12/4/2023, 10:47 PM
@HammerLegFoot - Ironically enough, Cyberpunk is in a great space rn, with all the patches and what not. Corporate meddling is what made the game what it was, but it’s great now. Still hyped for GTA 6 though…most hyped up game of all time.
Itwasme - 12/4/2023, 8:44 PM
I still remember when the first came out... it was so terrible. It's pretty amazing to see how far they've come.
mountainman - 12/4/2023, 9:20 PM
@Itwasme - GTA1 wasn’t that good, but 2 was great even before the 3D era.
AquaClunge - 12/5/2023, 3:40 AM
@Itwasme - I had a blast with it. I really hope they revisit london at some point 😭
HumanRubiksCube - 12/5/2023, 3:51 AM

I’m going to miss Trevor but this looks great. I’m looking forward to it.

Once again we get stuff like this but no box office article…
EgoEgor - 12/4/2023, 9:01 PM
@EZBeast - What you want another negative article of how X movie bombed? At least this is something positive.
EZBeast - 12/4/2023, 9:41 PM
@EgoEgor - because Godzilla minus one is the first live action Japanese film to make it into the top 3 box office in the US.

Don’t be a douche
EZBeast - 12/4/2023, 11:01 PM
In like 15 years
BigPhilbowski - 12/5/2023, 2:47 AM
@EZBeast - it's been covered on the sister site. That's why it's not here.
EZBeast - 12/5/2023, 8:51 AM
@BigPhilbowski - no one goes to those…
Comicmoviejunki - 12/5/2023, 12:11 PM
@EZBeast - relax. You've been whining for days about box office. The article is up already!!
EZBeast - 12/5/2023, 12:30 PM
@Comicmoviejunki - it came up after this article…
Comicmoviejunki - 12/5/2023, 1:09 PM
@EZBeast - lol. Enjoy bud.
EgoEgor - 12/4/2023, 8:48 PM
I've watched this too many times.

The graphics is amazing.
FusionWarrior - 12/4/2023, 8:52 PM
Whoa, hi-res sex and violence, sign me up! GTA V was my go to for quite some time with graphics that still hold up well, but this is something else!
SirDuckAlot - 12/4/2023, 8:54 PM
This Bonnie and Clyde relationship looks really dope. Probably the most hyped game of all time.
Feralwookiee - 12/4/2023, 8:55 PM
Can you still curbstomp hookers to death to get your money back?
ClintThaHamster - 12/5/2023, 7:31 AM
@Feralwookiee -
Feralwookiee - 12/5/2023, 9:04 AM
@ClintThaHamster - Not sure what this has to do with curbstomping hookers.

So, is that a "no"?
ClintThaHamster - 12/5/2023, 10:06 AM
@Feralwookiee - I mistook your comment as sincerely invoking the bullshit moral panic around GTA. Mea culpa.
Feralwookiee - 12/5/2023, 2:54 PM
@ClintThaHamster - No.
I haven't played a GTA game since San Andreas, but I do remember it as a good way to blow off steam after a shitty day at work.

There's nothing better to calm the nerves than sniping people from rooftops and stomping working girls to death. (In the GAME, that is!) 😁
EgoEgor - 12/4/2023, 8:59 PM
Can we all call this what it is... Florida: The Video Game.
Spidey91 - 12/4/2023, 9:14 PM
@EgoEgor - isn't that most of them thou?
mountainman - 12/4/2023, 9:22 PM
@EgoEgor - Seems like a good place to do a mockup of.

It is a little disappointing that they aren’t doing a new city, but Vice City was so long ago and they have done CA and NY twice now.
EgoEgor - 12/4/2023, 9:30 PM
@Spidey91 - not really. San Andreas is Cali, but Vice City is Florida.
EgoEgor - 12/4/2023, 9:33 PM
@mountainman - Vice City is just gorgeous, good that they waited this long if it looks this damn good.
mountainman - 12/4/2023, 9:38 PM
@EgoEgor - Yeah it is beautiful. I bet it’ll look even better at night. Plus with all the bodies of water out there, it should give some great variety. Looks like they’ll have some more rural parts of Florida too. Get some crazy swamp Florida Man situations.
AmazingFILMporg - 12/4/2023, 10:06 PM
@EgoEgor -

Florida is America's trash can.💁
JustAWaffle - 12/5/2023, 12:58 AM
@AmazingFILMporg - it’s Americas wang
AnthonyVonGeek - 12/4/2023, 9:00 PM
I used to get stoned and play Vice City but I would just steal a car, pick up hookers and cruise around. 🤣
