Rockstar Games has set the stage for the much-anticipated release of GTA VI in 2025, as unveiled in the game’s initial trailer.

With the GTA VI trailer creating substantial buzz—garnering nearly 84 million YouTube views within 20 hours of release—the game’s availability on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles excite fans. However, specific details about its PC and PlayStation 4 launch remain unconfirmed.

A Glimpse of GTA VI

The trailer features a pair reminiscent of “Bonnie and Clyde,” navigating a fictional version of Miami called “Vice City.” Although the leaked version surfaced on social media ahead of schedule, it provided glimpses of the game’s setting and stunning graphics, teasing the gameplay without revealing much.

To sum up, the trailer introduces Lucia, the game’s female protagonist, teasing a criminal escapade through beaches, highways, and clubs in Vice City. The setting portrays a Miami-inspired landscape, highlighting crimes, social media usage, and unexpected appearances of alligators in various locations.

Besides, the latest GTA VI trailer is packed with nods to real and bizarre Florida moments, like a man attempting to remove an alligator from a pool. As we all know, GTA games typically parody the cities they’re set in, but real-life oddities seem to have provided great material already!
