Rockstar Sets ‘Grand Theft Auto VI’ For 2025 With Stunning Trailer

It seems like the world truly cannot wait when it comes to Grand Theft Auto VI, or GTA VI, as leaks have seemingly forced Rockstar Games to launch the first-ever trailer of the game early. Coming after more than a decade since the last entry, if what we have seen from the trailer is any indication of the quality being developed, we are in for a good time.

Set to Tom Petty’s Love Is A Long Road, GTA VI introduces the two protagonists, Lucia and Jason, and brings players back to the beloved location of Vice City. Obviously, things are looking quite different from the time of one Tommy Vercetti, and it will likely bring a host of interesting activities to boot.

With the series always on the nose when it comes to lampooning the current state of society, it shouldn’t be surprising that there is a heavy dose of social media elements within the game. We see plenty of in-game footage shown through the lens of cameras and phones, and it remains to be seen just how that will make its way into the main gameplay.

What is more important is the chaos that awaits. With all sorts of gangs, madcap individuals and groups, and the satirical take on Miami, Florida, GTA VI has all the ingredients to impress, even at this early stage.

This will also be the first game in the series that Dan Houser will not be involved with. Having been part of a twin act with brother Sam Houser since the first game, he has since left the company in 2020. How this will impact the writing of GTA VI will be something to look out for as well, as the style and messaging of the games have always maintained a high quality.

The trailer wasn’t just all footage about the game; right at the end, we finally get the release window of Grand Theft Auto VI, with 2025 being the target. For now, according to Take-Two, the game will be headed to just the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S platforms, with PC nowhere in sight just yet. Needless to say, the world will be watching all the way up until launch day, and, of course, months and years beyond.
