Rockstar Games has officially announced the release date for the highly anticipated GTA 6 trailer on their official website and X.
The revelation includes the specific date and time for the trailer's debut, along with the unveiling of the first artwork for the game's branding.
Following the tradition set by its predecessors, GTA IV and GTA V, Rockstar Games has initiated a countdown on its newly updated website.
The countdown is set to conclude on Tuesday, December 5, at 6am PT, 9ET, and 2PM GMT.
This moment marks the official introduction of the next generation of Grand Theft Auto as envisioned by Rockstar.
The initial promotional material for the game, termed "Trailer 1" in Rockstar Games' post, is accompanied by an image featuring a Vice City sunset colour palette, palm trees, and a few birds.
This aesthetic sets the tone for the game's branding.
First artwork and trailer
The countdown is prominently displayed on Rockstar Games' website, offering enthusiasts an opportunity to bookmark the page.
It's worth noting that both the countdowns for the GTA IV and GTA V trailers caused crashes on Rockstar's website due to overwhelming anticipation.
Given the unprecedented excitement surrounding GTA 6, a similar scenario may unfold.
The trailer is expected to go live on Rockstar's YouTube channel simultaneously.
Rockstar's time to shine
Last year, a teenager leaked 90 videos showcasing early in-development footage of the upcoming GTA 6.
While these clips were a few years old and displayed placeholders with evident lack of polish, community members defended Rockstar's teams against doubts regarding the game's quality.
The leaked footage raised questions about the game's state of completion, and enthusiasts pushed back against sceptics by emphasizing the early nature of the videos.
