Set in Vice City, a fictional city based in Miami, the trailer follows Lucia, the first female protagonist in the Grand Theft Auto series, and an unnamed male lead, Jason, in a tale of love and crime, seemingly inspired by Bonnie and Clyde, a real-life criminal couple.
Grand Theft Auto VI Trailer 1
The trailer begins with introducing Lucia, who seems to be in prison at the beginning. When asked why she’s locked up, she simply replies, “Bad luck, I guess.”
The trailer then takes us to a beach filled with tourists and animals, such as birds and dolphins. That’s not it but there are alligators, too, and flamingos. We also see what appears to be the swampy Everglades and someone driving an airboat. In the typical GTA fashion, there is a quick shot of a strip club and crowded streets covered in graffiti.
Then, the trailer introduces us to the male protagonist, Jason. And then we see Lucia towards the end of the trailer, saying, “The only way we are going to get through this is by sticking together. Being a team.” She then asks her partner in crime, Jason, “Trust?” and he replies, “Trust.”
Just a day before the scheduled release of GTA VI’s first trailer, an account that has now been suspended posted the trailer on X (formerly Twitter). The trailer was supposed to premiere on Tuesday, December 5th at 9 AM ET, but Rockstar responded quickly by releasing the trailer in full on its official YouTube channel.
Take-Two has confirmed that GTA 6 will be available on Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. However, there has been no mention of the game being released on any other platforms, suggesting that it may not be available on PC, at least not initially. Both Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) and its sequel, GTA V (2013), were initially released on PS3 and Xbox 360, but not on PC.
