The highly anticipated GTA VI has released its first trailer, revealing a female protagonist for the first time in the game series and confirming that the adventure will be set in Vice City, a Miami-inspired location that has appeared in previous installments. This announcement has sparked excitement around the world, as fans eagerly anticipate the release of the sixth canonical installment of the Grand Theft Auto saga.
The previous installment, GTA V, has become the highest-grossing cultural product in history, generating over 7.12 billion euros in revenue. With 185 million copies sold and a popular multiplayer mode that continues to attract users, the franchise has solidified its place in popular culture and the gaming industry.
Originally scheduled to be released on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m., the trailer was leaked ahead of time, prompting the company to officially advance its publication. The preview has also revealed that the game is set to be released in 2025.
Known for its irreverent humor, unique portrayal of violence, and immersive open-world gameplay, the GTA series has become a hallmark of adult-oriented video games. The franchise has also faced criticism and controversy surrounding the connection between video game violence and real-world behavior.
The timing of the trailer release, just days before The Game Awards gala, is strategic, as the company aims to position GTA VI as a frontrunner for future awards and garner attention from the entertainment industry.
Last year, GTA VI made headlines due to a data leak suffered by the developer, Rockstar, which included images and source code of the game. Since then, speculation and anticipation for the game have been continuously growing, and the official trailer is set to further fuel the excitement.
With the first real look at the game, fans can expect GTA VI to set new records and push the boundaries of interactive entertainment. The game is undoubtedly poised to captivate audiences with its immersive world and unique gameplay experiences.
